Twigs Restaurant and Bar | Blowing Rock, NC

Blowing Rock, NC

Brothers David and Doug Beach have been proud owners of Twigs since August, 2000. They purchased the landmark restaurant with a vision to make Twigs a diverse place where tourist and locals can relax and have a nice, romantic meal in the dining room or a more casual dinner or drinks in the bar area. For folks with an appetite for after dinner drinks and activity, Twigs bar has bands on Friday and Saturday nights. Both David and Doug strive to carry on the tradition of casual mountain elegance.
