I should have listened to my brother who said this was not good. The only reason I gave 2 stars instead of one is that the hush puppies were very yummy. Otherwise, I got a cocktail that was disgusting. Took one sip and sent it...More

The view is incredible! Get there early, it’s busy but worth the wait! Hostess was a delight and the bartender, Max, was great. Our server was super too! Our meals were super! We will be back!

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.
