Girlfriend and I have visited this place a few times now and every time the food has blown us away. The food is quality without trying to be upscale. My only complaint is every time we visit the food takes a while to come out even when the restaurant is slow but the wait is worth the quality food

I used to frequent this place. Last time I was there the burger, fries, and gravy were so ridiculously salty they were inedible. My wife and I vowed this would be the last time we ever visited Twist.

Hi Tyler D., Thanks for making Twist and Shout part of your lunch/dinner plans and thanks for the feedback. I can see how your fries may have been over salted since we salt them "on the go" and by hand, but the burger and gravy are made with a specific recipe which calls for a specific amount of spices.

Friend and I wanted to give this place a shot even though we heard nothing but bad things about it. Well, we waited about 1.5 hours for our food, even though there was probably three other small tables in the resto. When we got our food it was so very bad (bruschetta store bought and soggy, burger and bun rock... More

Hi there, Thanks for making Twist part of your lunch/dinner plans. I'd like to inform yourself and other readers of the following: -the bruschetta we serve is made in-house. It isn't store bought. -we don't use a heat lamp in our kitchen as we cook to-order. The only food we have sitting in warmers are gravy and soup. -besides yesterday... More

Had lunch here recently. Food was delicious and well priced. Staff was friendly, courteous and service was great. Atmosphere was the best we found in Yellowknife. Was nice to find a place to eat that didn't feel like and old rundown shack.

After an extended stay in yellowknife finding most restaurants shady at best this place was a relief to find. Great food, clean and not overpriced. Will be returning!

Recommended by a front desk staff at Days Inn (actually she recommended Fuego which is in the lower level of the building and belongs to the same owner, but was closed). Not sure of the food quality as Twist appears to be offering pub food. We ordered fish and chips, grilled sandwich, chicken wings, lasagna. All are good. Companion sai... More

Great price, average wings. Tried several flavours and not anything to write home about. Commercial sauces and not crispy. Although not busy, service was very slow, 15 mins from receiving bill to close out tab and had to constantly flag staff for drinks. Heard good things about other menu items so won't rule out but better wings in town.

I stopped in with a friend of mine for the first time for a quick lunch while in Yellowknife for meetings. It had a bit of a "bar" atmosphere which wasn't what we were looking for, but ended up being served an excellent lunch. The music was a bit loud for lunch time otherwise I would have given it 5...

Had a super quinoa salad. Easy going and attentive servers. We went with the server's recommendation for perogies as an appetizer and it was a real winner.

Hi, Thanks for the kind review. Many customers have told us how much they appreciate having a variety of vegetarian dishes to pick from. We are in the process of creating a new menu which will have new and tasty options. Hope to serve you again in the near future! -Jason More
