Twin Oaks Country Inn Ratings and Reviews
This was our second visit. After being wowed last summer we decided to go again. The food was not as good, with my wife's dish barely recognizable as the same menu item, and my steak while internally the right temperature was charred on the outside. 6:30 on a Saturday night and the noise level approached that of happy hour at the local watering hole. Apparently nobody knows how to behave in public anymore.
We went there on a winter stormy night with another couple. We hadn't been there for about 14 years and notice the decor looked the same. It could use a little update. The bartender was nice but she couldn't find any Southern comfort. Also, the server was not that good. We all ordered the mix grill and she said the steak would come out medium rare. Well, my friend asked it she could have hers well done and the waitresses agree. I had already ordered and realized I would like my steak done medium well and the waitress gave me a hard time about that. I was shocked ...she was not a good server by any means. The food came out and looked and taste amazing. Great cook but lacking in other areas.
Well worth the trip from any direction to Wilmot. The menu selections, including the daily specials list were not overpoweringly long but had something for all tastes. Service was well timed and very friendly. The homemade multi-grain bread was all the appetizer the 3 of us needed. The home made soup of the day was almost enough by itself but the entrees were large and very well made. All 3 of us chose a seafood entree and our cousin from the coast of Virginia said the seafood was wonderful and plentiful. All 3 of us took home another meal's worth of our entree which heated up nicely. While I was too full to have desert, the other 2 shared one and loved it. To top it all off, on the way through the entry hall we were able to pick up a free loaf of the wonderful bread for at home---no extra cost!!
We went for the Friday fish fry that is not advertised or on the menu. The homemade applesauce was delicious, it was a large portion of fish, but the perch over cooked and dry. One very small potato pancake that was good tasting but a larger pancake or even 2 would have been nice. Love the apple dumpling, it has been a standard for years and the cinnamon ice cream is the perfect compliment.
The chair my guest sat in was very wobbly, we switched it with another empty chair at the table none of the staff bothered to help or didn't even seem to notice. They might want to get the chairs repaired or replaced before one of them breaks and someone gets hurt.
I will go again, we have gone here on and off for years. Everything on their regular menu never disappoints.
We have visited the Inn many times and have never been disappointed. The meals start with the homemade bread- which is delicious. We have had a variety of menu items. The steaks are usually very good as are the pasta and seafood items. The ambiance is traditional country inn. Looks like something out of New England. One of our favorites. The prices are reasonable.
The food is chef created and has always been exceptional and flavorful. The restaurant is a big, old, Victorian house that is very cozy and inviting. Salads are not included with the meals and come with an extra cost. Meals are from the upper teens to lower $30's with most meals in the $20 range. I have eaten here on and off for over 20 years and would recommend for those who don't like microwave processed meals.
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.
