Our commitment to seasonality is reflected in our seating. In warmer weather, enjoy dining on the terrace, with expansive views of Wachusett Reservoir and Wachusett Mountain. During the cooler months, guests are served in the Great Hall, warmed with a wood-burning fire.

Children are always welcome at Twigs!  View our Children’s Menu here.
