Twin Peaks Restaurant has arrived in Omaha and will open to the public tonight March 29, at 5 p.m. At a VIP party last night, Twin Peaks teased new guests with their scenic views, ice-cold beer, and great food; yes, there was great food and it surprisingly was not all fried!
Our group arrived at 7 p.m. to a packed house of bustling female wait staff, good music, and a diverse crowd. Couples, retirees, families, and kids were not what you might expect, given the reputation of a restaurant that targets the male population. However, it seemed to work last night at our table and others around us. Everyone from the guests to the staff seemed relaxed and it felt almost like a party a restaurant would throw after a year in business.
Not one complaint from our group of nine about the food, and the beer temperature was spot on; why is it so hard to get other businesses to serve ice-cold beer these days. However, Twin Peaks does it right and they let you know the temperature of the beer by their displayed digital thermometer on the wall. The menu is diverse and offers some entertaining and exciting food, from BBQ pulled pork nachos to the crowd favorite fried pickle and jalapeño basket. The portions for appetizers and entrees were generous and the flavors were great for each dish we tried.
This Omaha location is the 14th for the company that started in Lewisville, Texas. Twin Peaks believes their key to success is to be the best. General Manager John Begley said, “the brand sums it up, smoking hot women with ice cold beer and food all made from scratch”. So far, they are right; there was a noticeable difference in every aspect at Twin Peaks.
