The salad fried oysters and scallops were great. The shrimp and crab appetizer was not . The seasoning overpowered the dish so much that you could not taste the shrimp or crab. The service was marginal at best. I would come back for the salads...More

Total disappointment after a decade of eating at Twin Lakes at least once during our yearly vacation. Grumpy server, over cooked hush puppies, under-seasoned shrimp and clams. Major menu down grade. Whatever changed, ownership or cooks, wasn't a good thing!

After 46 years, Ronnie and Clarice Holden decided it was time to share their love of Twin Lakes with their friends, The Watkins. In February of 2017 they began the new Twin Lakes By The Sea and it started to evolve into a year round restaurant with a southern flair added to it with some of Alysa's competition winning dishes added to the new menu. Now guests from all over the country can still get the best in Carolina cuisine with the Southern hospitality (coastal style) ...come add a little paradise to your evening at Twin Lakes By The Sea...where sunsets are always complimentary. Come dine on our new outdoor deck! Now open for lunch.
