We had the Kobe beef flank steak, wild boar, pecan crusted trout, and pork chops, and all was simply excellent, I would go again any time. Open Table reservation is possible, but we were told, that ours was the third reservation that same night, which was accepted by Open Table - only they never received it. ???

I used to live in BR. twigs was know for very good service and excellent food. Same cannot be said of my recent dinner there about 3 weeks ago. My bf was also not impressed.

Man oh man! The Joyce Farms chicken breast entrée is ONE OF THE BEST dishes ever! Don't be concerned about the "ghost pepper" infused honey sauce. Excessive heat IS NOT a problem. The only problem is wanting it again and again. Twig's always has a nice selection on their menu. I NEVER order chicken out. I did in August when... More

We went to Twigs on a Thursday evening for the bar special filet mignon night. Special is 5 dollars off the bar filet(5ounce) and were so not disappointed. It was perfectly prepared and came with potato mash and chef's veggies. Perfect amount of food. Highly recommend.

This has been our go-to restaurant for years, but it had been a couple of years since our last visit. The food was mediocre, the restaurant was loud and the service was just ok.

Upon a recommendation from a "local", we, as visitors, dined at Twigs during our recent trip to Blowing Rock. It is very out-of-the-way, meaning not easily seen from busy Highway 321. BUT, it has so much atmosphere, even before you enter the restaurant: the tiny twinkling lights strung among the twigs beckon guests to come inside. Once inside, the dining... More

The four of us really liked this restaurant. The service was excellent (they apparently accepted the criticism about keeping water glasses full), and the food came out just when we thought it should. The pork chops were tasty and extremely tender, and there was a generous serving of the duck. The two people who ordered the almond crusted trout were... More

Left message for dinner reservation. They would not honor it. No effort made to accomodate. Take it or leave it attitude for poorly offered alternative times.

I love coming here solo or with family and friends. They have a dining room but we like eating at the Bar. The Bar Filet garlic mash and veggies is cooked perfectly every time and melts in your mouth. Friday and Saturdays they have live music older crowd generally and you'll find locals and travels sharing a good time in... More

Attentive knowledgeable staff and talented chefs produce a very pleasant evening. Extensive menu with fine wines and white table cloths makes this restaurant stand out from the rest. The Kobe flank steak was wonderful as was Rocky's service. She was challenged by some very demanding customers and dealt with it with confidence and patience (a lot of patience).
