My wife found Twinings several summers ago on our in bound trip to Ocean City. We stopped for lunch and decided to make it our regular lunch spot, so you know we enjoyed it. After being lunch only customers, we decided to go for dinner. We were not disappointed. 3 in our party of 4 had a lobster dinner. All agreed it was the best they had this far south of New England. The fourth dinner was a combination of crab and cod. Again an excellent meal. Soups included crab & shrimp chowder and lobster bisque. All meals are served with the house starch& vegetables. After this meal, there was no room for desert. The restaurant takes reservations for groups of 8 or more. We were a party of 4 and we're seated upon entry around 7PM. If your looking for a New England treat don't pass on Twining's.

My wife and I have been to the lobster shanty in the past and found it a bit off from Twining's other restaurant Nantucket. On the way back from a shopping trip we stopped for dinner last night and the place was packed. When we left their were lines waiting outside. The menu is primarily lobster type dishes and rolls although there are other choices. It was a good meal and our server very good. We shared a dozen steamed clams then my wife had a lobster tail covered with crab imperial. I had a different t;ype of lobster roll which is more lobster and less salad although the lobster portion in the roll was very small. The prices are on the high scale but wine prices are pretty average by the bottle. The parking lot is a challenge as when trying to get out, many cars had double parked in front of parked cars. Fortunately they have a man outside who helps direct people around the rude double parkers.

Very pretty location. Attentive servers. Food was just ok. Came out quickly but wasn't special. Maine Lobster was dry and overlooked. Steamed clams were good. Soups were good. Lobster guacamole was good.

So they offer a carryout menu - so we called in to place an order for dinner. They said they were too bust to take our order. We'd have to come in and sit down to eat. We really like the food here - but wanted to just eat in our vacation home and enjoy our family. So we ended up ordering from the Crab Cake Factory.
