Twin Oaks Country Inn Ratings and Reviews

This restaurant has been our favorite for the better part of 20 years. When our children were young, this is where we would go on a date night. Now, our children are adults, and they love Twin Oaks, as well! Service is, and has always been, outstanding. Portion sizes are perfect, preparation is consistent, there are always delicious new options, and they know their wines! The atmosphere is warm and relaxing, and we've never had a problem with noise levels. We have had office Christmas parties here, as well. We highly recommend Twin Oaks.

Cozy atmosphere in the old Victorian house setting. Unique menu. You can always request a favorite meal when you make your reservation. Servers are always attentive to your needs. Our favorite place to eat and bring friends.

We had visited Twin Oaks Country Inn previously and been very impressed. The ambience was warm, relaxed and subdued in an historic site, beautifully decorated with authentic period furnishings. Our service was wonderful, the food delicious, and we overheard some conversations at other tables alluding to their meals tasting incredible as well. We had wanted to return for some time, and had occasion to for our anniversary. It did not disappoint! I asked my server for recommendations and had her favorite, the Beef Wellington, which was stupendous. The only issue that we encountered was outside of their control. We arranged for our reservation online very easily. The trip was a distance for us and there was never a mention of the road we needed to take (which was just a few miles from them) being out for repairs. There were no clearly marked detours, and we needed to circle back around on twisting country roads (pretty trip, but could be dangerous at night). We felt it would have been helpful to have that information available at the time we made the reservation. We were told it was just closed that day. I would highly recommend calling ahead to ensure adequate directions, even if the reservation is made online. (Yes, there was a more direct route we could have taken, and staff were more than willing to guide us through it for the return trip). We would highly recommend Twin Oaks to anyone looking for great food and service!

The food was expensive but we knew that when reservations were made. But when you order expensive food you expect it to be very good. The meat for two of us was very tough. I personally brought home half of my steak and fed it to the dog. My friend threw hers in the garbage when she came home. Very disappointed.

It was our second visit in three months. Our reservation was for 7:30 and we took our time is it was a farewell dinner with a friend. By 9 pm, we began to feel as if we were imposing on our waiter who seemed anxious to be finished with us. It spoiled what was an otherwise fine night out.

With eight very different palates to please, eight different entrees were ordered, and all were very much enjoyed. With diners from ages 12 to 80, everyone found something to fit their tastes and their mood. Traditional American steak and seafood, fantastic pork chops and great pasta dishes, as well as roast duck and a Bohemian dish I won't attempt to spell that was amazing, featuring steak in a creamy dill sauce. Samples were shared around the table of several of the dishes. It was our first visit, but it won't be our last.

It is a nice quant restaurant. But then meal was slow and the waitress seemed overwhelmed with her duties even thoguh there were only four tables in the restaurant and another waitress. I would recommend the restaurant. The food is great but thr service could be better.
Twin Oaks is consistently excellent! The food is outstanding, the service is friendly and efficient, and the portions are huge! We typically take home enough for another dinner, which means the prices are more than reasonable! This is one of our favorite restaurants!
My second time to this restaurant with an 8 year gap between. The look of the restaurant has not changed in that time. Despite being peak dining time on a Friday night the restaurant was relatively slow with no wait and many available tables. The service, while not terrible was similar to what you would expect in a very busy restaurant. Slow and not very attentive. The food was excellent which is why we will definitely go back.

We have been to Twin Oaks a number of times and we are never disappointed. The service is wonderful with friendly wait staff. The food is always done to perfection. We recently had the salmon and the shrimp and crab meat combination. Both were outstanding. Everything from the bread basket to the coffee is excellent. We look forward to our next visit there.

My wife and I recently dined here on a Friday night with another couple - we live near Milwaukee and they live in suburban Chicago, so this seemed like a good compromise in location. The food was inconsistent at best. One person had the NY strip/Shrimp combo and found the shrimp bland and the steak tough and tasteless. I had the Beef Wellington, which was marvelous. Someone else had a shrimp dish that was mixed with potato cubes that was simply poorly executed. As to the "ambiance" - there is a narrow line between "quaint and historic" and "old and decrepit", and the building was on the wrong side of that line. The service was adequate, but nothing special. The desserts, however, were all superb. I know a place like this shouldn't necessarily be held to the standards of a city/suburban venue, but it did not perform well enough to justify making the special trip to the boonies it requires.

The food is always delicious, great Sauces on each dish. The crab cake appetizer is mostly all crab, the best I have ever eaten. Kathy is a great server, both personable and knowledgeable, great knowledge of wine. I have been going to Twin Oaks for 8 yrs and never disappointed in anything.
solid as usual
Bar for pre dinner drink was robust, bartender polite & friendly to the 4 of us. Table ready and waiting for us at reservation time.
Apps & meal were solid and enjoyed by all members & staff was most pleasant and accommodating. very nice time - again.
Twin Country Inn Review
We had 6:00 reservations for 3 and were seated on time and had a nice table in the dining room. The waitress did not seem to know much about the food as when I asked how a certain item was, her reply was she had not had it and did not know. I was kind of looking for a recommendation but did not get one. I ordered the blackened tilapia and it was very good. The other people at my table had the 25th year anniversary special of ribeye and shrimp. They enjoyed their meals too. My only "complaint" is that we took home leftovers and the next day, when I went to open my tilapia, imagine my surprise when I had the ribeye of the person we had met for dinner! I can only imagine his surprise when he opened his box and had tilapia! we took the boxes the waitress gave us and unfortunately, did not look inside them before leaving. The ambience of the restaurant is wonderful and it was a nice evening out.
Twin Oaks Date Night
Overall we had a nice time. Food was good, and the drinks were pretty decent too. Service was an 8 out of 10; nothing particularly wrong, but not knock your socks off.
We'd come back, which I guess is the most important measure of success.
Reservations were not adhered to.
We arrived at 7:30; waited ten minutes for a host to appear, were directed to the bar because our table was not vacant yet. 50 minutes later, we were finally seated. The host did not keep us informed on the reason for the wait; the bartender heard us grumbling and took it upon himself to comp our cocktails. He was tipped extremely well for his kind act and his ability and service were extraordinary. The host needs to review her duties.
I was served a dried out entree
Your prices are very fair for a nice restaurant, however, highly over priced when I was served a poor entree. We were there to celebrate our 45th anniversary, had I returned my meal - my wife would have gotten to eat her meal by herself, then I could have eaten mine by myself - how romantic.
Worth the drive
This was our second visit within a month. Initially referred by a customer of ours. Our first visit we met friends from Chicagoland. They were impressed. We were too, came back for a second visit with local friends. It's close to the Illinois border and a 40 minute drive from our house but that didn't stop us. My husband had their beef wellington both times said it was the best he's had in years. They have an extensive menu but both times all of us ordered of the specials menu. The seafood margharita was the best seafood medley pasta dish I have ever had. The blackened seabass special was also worth raving about. One tiny let down was the leak, potato soup. The first time we were there it was a much creamier version and delicious. The second time, only great not exceptional.
Great location and charming old mansion location.
Loved the location, but the food felt very dated. Its time for a menu update. The portions were large and the prices very very reasonable. Unfortunately, we had noted a birthday celebration in our reservation but the waiter never brought it up. We also waited for 20 minutes to get a table despite many open tables. We assume they had staff shortage on a Saturday night.
We'll be back!
A friend recommended Twin Oaks to us as having excellent food, service, and ambience. We were there with 6 people to celebrate a birthday and rate all 3 as being A+. We appreciated the traditional Christmas carols and songs in the background. The old Victorian house was like a picture postcard - both inside and out. Desserts were extra special.
