    Lots of GF options, and very safe. One of my wife's favorites. Where else can you get GF onion rings?!?

    8.15.17 I had the Gluten Free Twigs Specialty Country Captain Chicken along with a piece of GF bread. It was really good. Oh, and had some of my husbands GF onion ring Frittis. So good! Knowledgeable staff. I felt very comfortable eating there.

    If you're looking for a safe place to eat you have to go here!! The gluten free menu is AMAZING! The back of the menu says the owner has celiac and they do everything they can to reduce CC. They have a separate gf kitchen and my food came out with a little gluten free tag. She brought my hubby's food first and then commented that she will wash her hands and then bring mine. I've never experienced anything like this! HIGHLY recommend!

    WOW. A diamond place. Food was tremendous. Fish and chip was very tastee. Applewood smoked meatloaf also very good. Then a huge desert selection. Been celiac for 16 years and I would say the best place I have eaten by far.

    Yum! Onion Rings! Wild rice soup! We ate items we haven't had in years! Everything was delicious. The warm bread was a nice little extra. The desserts were fabulous! Plus we had no reactions.

    I was in Rochester for three days for a conference and ate here twice. They asked me if I needed a GF menu and gave me (delicious!) GF bread free of charge both times! I got the cheeseburger wrap with French fries both times as well and there was always a little GF marker on my plate. Great atmosphere inside and out, really friendly wait staff, extensive GF menu...this place is awesome!

    If you live in Rochester, or are just visiting and have celiac, this place is by far the best. They asked if I needed a gluten free menu before I could ask them. They have a wide variety of choices on the menu and its all reasonably priced. I highly recommend!

    Hostess asked if I wanted a gluten-free menu before I had a chance to ask. Large selection on dedicated gluten-free menu. Onion rings were great, as well as the rest of the meal. Our server; Denise; was excellent. Will be stopping here again the next time I am in Rochester.

    Wonderful menu, great service. I an allergic to wheat, gluten and dairy. Twigs offered me a ton of dining choices. My husband does not have food allergies and he had a lot of choices. Really good food. Nice outdoor dining available.

    Absolutely wonderful! The salted caramel cheesecake was average in my opinion, but a clever use of nuts as a crust. I'd skip the ice cream completely, but the onion rings, fried green beans and steak duo were all superb. We plan to eat there quite often while in town, and will give dessert one more try, before deciding whether or not to skip it. (Even when I could eat gluten, I've been to some excellent restaurants which didn't have very good desserts.)

    Why aren't there more than 5 stars?! This place was the best. So many choices. Owner had celiacs so they get the whole cross contamination issue. We had onion rings! First time in 6 years! Their burger buns are soft and tasty. Full gluten free menu. Appetizers, salads, soups, entrees, and desserts. You have to try this place :-) Adding more... Just had soup!!!!! And flat bread with chicken teriyaki, pineapple and cheese. So delish!!!

    This was our favorite restaurant before our daughters celiac diagnosis, and we are thrilled we can eat here still! It is the only restaurant we trust as the owner has celiac and they have a completely separate kitchen. They are also fantastic about our son's milk allergy, and go out of their way to ensure a safe dinner for our whole family, which is a huge deal to us. Twigs is setting a precedent that more restaurants should take notice of.

    One of the best gf restaurants I've ever been to. The owner is celiac and the gf menu is extensive. The sandwich bun is amazing-one of the best I've had. Great gf desserts. I will definitely eat here again while in Rochester.

    Excellent gluten free menu that gave us the option of trying something we wouldn't make at home. My 9 year old asked three times if he could really have fish and chips...breaded and fried fish and chips! Great indulgence. We went early in the night (around 5) but the kids weren't out of place since it's also attached to the hotel.

    Dinner at Twigs was amazing! We had the Hot Rock Combo For Two which was a fun experience. All the food was wonderful, the atmosphere was nice, and there were no worries about cross contamination- it was obvious they very experienced with the gluten free diet. We arrived about 4:30 on a Friday night which was good as by the time we left the place had filled up. We'll be back.

    You know when you walk into a place to eat and they ask if anyone needs a gluten free menu before they ask how many are in your party that you are in the right spot. The GF menu is 4 PAGES long. They have a dedicated KITCHEN to cook GF foods. I was with some people that did not have to eat gluten free and they brought their food out first, explained that they had to go wash their hands and then bring out my food. AMAZING. Then add in very reasonable prices and amazing food and its a win/win for everyone!!! We ate there twice in one week during a stay in Rochester and I can not recommend this place highly enough. I hope she expands nationwide so I will always have a safe go-to place when I travel!

    The food is good, the gluten free menu is incredible and includes all the stuff you usually can't enjoy in a restaurant like: bread with dinner, French fries, a burger with a bun, onion rings. The owner has celiac so has tKen special care to create a dedicated gfree cooking space in the kitchen and has trained the waiters. This place is especially great for gfree kids!

    We went to Twigs for the first time today and it was amazing! The food was prepared so well and plated beautifully. It was nice to find a whole menu dedicated to GF eating instead of needing to ask about every single item. I had the chicken sandwich and it was served on a cheesy bun, not a dry bun like is so often the case with places that have a GF option. I will definitely be back and am looking forward to trying other things on their menu as well. Definitely a 5+ star rating from me!

    I am extremely sensitive to gluten, and I've eaten at Twigs dozens of times and have never gotten sick. This is the only gluten free restaurant in Rochester that I don't get sick at. They have a separate gluten free kitchen to make sure there is zero cross contamination!

    I seriously cannot believe that anyone that is on a strict GF diet would have anything bad to say about this place! I live in Seattle WA where there are plenty of GF options, and this is by far the best place I have ever eaten. Their food is amazing, they have so many options that I could eat here for two weeks and never have the same meal, and their staff is wonderful. I never once got sick from eating here. THANK YOU FOR EXISTING, it made my trip to Rochester MN so much better!
