ordered appetizers. Grouper bites were raw. Sent back got them again and they were raw. Sauce for mozzarella was so gross. Hush puppies were over cooked. Came with a cinnamon butter. More like a desert. Don’t go - not worth the money!

There were 4 tables, 6 of us at our table... An hour and 1/2 to receive our food! Ridiculous! It also took them 30 minutes to seat us, with a call ahead

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.
