It's small and off beat but Twisties is a fun spot to hang out if you are in or passing through Strathmere. Catch the sunset on the cozy outside deck if you can, and check out the 'heads' along the top of the bar. 😄

Just stopped in for a few beers on a hot summer day. A nice waterfront venue, with a good bartending staff. I'd go back. Parking is difficult in season. Place closes on Columbus Day for winter.

Walked into Twisties and felt like it was 1982. Bruce Springsteen on the juke box, old decor, and tables and chairs that don't match. Felt like I walked into a hall in an old church. Some people may like that aura, but the place was...More

Drove up in the boat and had a great lunch on the water. Service was slow but I think our waitress was busy. The burgers were delicious! The fish tacos were good but could use some more meat in them. Great beer selection too!
