Brunch was awesome. Amazing skirt steak with eggs. My fiancé ordered the turkey sandwich on a croissant and she loved it. The staff was friendly and the environment was relaxing.

We hadn't been to the Twisted Elm in a while. The food is still great. My wife had the burger and I had the pork flatiron. Both were delicious and nice large portions. The service was excellent as well. If in the area stop in.
