“Very good food at a very reasonable price”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

Twin Oaks is a mainstay restaurant and is probably one of the best known restaurants in RI. Menu is extensive with large selection of steak, seafood and Italian meals. I will usually order either the Filet Mignon or Provimi Veal Parmesean. This last visit it was the steak. As usual, it was terrific. I like the pasta, so I'll almost always order that with the steak rather than veggies and potato. There a number of appetizers to pick from and I had stuffed cherry peppers this last visit. The chicken soup is usually good and was this last time. There have been times when it seems a little watery. Service is usually good and was this last visit. They will usually accommodate a ressonable substitution request and there is a "seniors" section on the menu for smaller portions. Alcoholic drinks are generous and made by competent bartenders. There are two bars that you can eat at if you choose. It is usually difficult to find a bar seat depending on time of day.

“Nice, cozy older place with great food.”
Reviewed 2 November 2013 via mobile

Don't come to Providence often, but when I do, I make it a point to go the Twin Oaks for their great lobster rolls. It's enough for two-three meals. Service can be slow, but the food is worth the wait.

“Consistently Excellent Food & Service”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

This restaurant has been around for years and it's easy to understand why. The food is fresh and well prepared. The portions are generous and the kitchen will accommodate variations. The wait staff is patient and well informed. They will make recommendations based on your likes or dislikes. This is a dining experience, not just another place for a meal.

“Nostalgic Lunch at RI landmark”
Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

Some things never change, including twin oaks. Great selection with service that still impresses. Attention to detail for our group of 4 adults and a baby for lunch. Lobster roll was sublime! Fun people watching too!
