Can't imagine why this place is so far down the list for Kent restaurants, maybe it's "too far out of town". We had a very good dinner here, shrimp & scallops and sauteed walleye. Both excellent entree's, well prepared and garnished. Two distinct dinning rooms, one with bar and booths, another with a view out over the east Twin Lake.... More

Went for Sunday lunch on patio. Order burger. Food is cooked on patio/bar area. Watch food sit there for about 5 minutes as cook didn't tell server it was ready. Flies were on food during this time. I refuse the food when it was brought to me & explained why. Server was nice & agreed. A short time later a... More

The guests all clearly enjoy themselves here - and who wouldn't? Great bar, delicious food options. My favorite? Crab clusters - and onion rings! Perfect!!!

We sat on the patio for dinner and drinks with a group of friends. The view over the lake is great and the atmosphere on the patio is fun and relaxed. The food is good, typical bar food. I would highly recommend the lobster roll. We've never eaten inside, but I've heard great things about the seafood.

My husband and I have gone to The Tavern at Twin lakes for the view and the Calamari. The seafood was always very good. Tonight it was like a sports bar threw up it's worst. The Rangoon dip was cheap cheese and salt, the bison burger was tasteless (and we eat bison regularly) the shrimp salad however was very good.... More

Went there for dinner. The place was filthy to the point where you wonder how clean the kitchen could possibly be. Will never return.

For a causal night out choose the Patio, its basically pub grub. If you are into a nice meal, especially the seafood dishes go inside, you'll need reservations on the weekend. Wonderful little gem

I have frequented the Tavern at Twin Lakes for many years. It is always reliable for expertly prepared and interesting seafood, as well as beef and poultry dishes.. Service is good and has a beautiful view of East Twin Lake. Portions are just right for me but I'm not a believer in "food spilling over you plate" equates with quality.... More

We always make reservations when the Annual Clambake comes around. Came twice last year. This year's was as good. You get 2 dozen clams, 1 dozen mussels, half baked chicken, corn on the cob, sweet potato, and calm broth. I added an 8oz lobster tail. My wife ordered the prime rib. Our meals were excellent. The clams were sweet and... More
