How often do you get to say that you had dinner in Twin Peaks? Well, I suppose if you live in this small mountain town, you get to say it all the time, but I was wildly entertained when I saw the sign. Slotted between where we were staying in Crestline and the larger Lake Arrowhead, Twin Peaks became our destination for a nice dinner on our first night in town. Where did we go? The Grill at Antler’s Inn.
I was sold just from the twinkle lights and that patio seating, but the inside ambiance is just as lovely. Filled with wood accents, there is a comfortable yet romantic feel to the place. This is a spot to linger over tasty food – not a spot that is going to rush you in and out even when they are busy, as they were on a Friday night.
Recommended dish: Pork T-Bone
I enjoyed the chicken and penne gorgonzola, but the pork t-bone that Andy had was something special, as was the raspberry dressing on the house salad (it’s something unique to the restaurant). If you like pork that has a bit of spicy kick, this is the dish for you.
Entrees run from $18-ish to about $45, and the portions are large.
The only downside I can think of is that their “by the glass” wine menu is fairly limited. Andy and I don’t drink a lot, so a bottle isn’t practical. We did end up finding something that each of us enjoyed, though.
Upscale casual seemed to be the general feel, with some being more casual than others. I did wear jeans, and I wasn’t alone, but I saw some people a bit more dressed up. I’m guessing it is like a lot of nice restaurants in mountain towns – variations on casual rule the day.
If you are in the area and looking for a nice restaurant that is particularly well-suited to couples, The Grill at Antler’s Inn is a great choice!
