Friendly and attractive wait staff, fresh, scratch made food, the coldest beer on the planet and all the sports you can handle – all within a mountain lodge – makes Twin Peaks, Clear Lake’s largest “Man Cave.”
The wave of large scale sports bars, filled with sexy women in skimpy outfits is growing – and it’s hit Webster hard. But when good food, cold beer and great service are the keys to your success, who’s to complain? The great thing about Twin Peaks is that it caters to a very mixed crowd. From family gatherings in the afternoons and early evenings because the food is fresh and reasonably priced, to later at night when the single girls come out to play and the sports fanatics cheer on their favorite team.
Twin Peaks is a high-tech video establishment. There are flat screens all over the place. In fact, many booths actually have their own personal, private TV; and changing the station or adjusting the volume is a snap. Expect every major sports broadcast to be shown from NFL Sunday Ticket, Major League Baseball, Fox Sports Net, and MMA – some of the flat screens even feature the restaurant’s own network: Twin Peaks TV, bringing you hi-def Twin Peaks girls on screen. Other amenities include free Wi-Fi and electrical outlets all over the place.
Eats and drinks during sporting events are a must, and Twin Peaks delivers with Happy Hour beginning early at 2:00 p.m. and ending at 7 p.m., daily. But wait! There’s more. In a smart attempt to corner the party people, Late Night Happy Hour is in service every day from 10 to 11 p.m., except on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, when it’s extended until 1 a.m. Additionally, shots are always $2.99!
But what really blows my mind is how good the food really is. All prepared in-house, the food tastes fresh, comes in huge “man-sized” portions and is competitively priced. I recommend starting off with a bowl of Venison Chili or sharing the Pulled Pork Nachos with friends, before devouring a Smokehouse Burger or a plate of Steak Sliders. If you’re feeling a bit more classy, definitely go for the Ribeye Pot Roast or the Flat Iron Steak. For those with a hearty appetite, finish off with the Twin Peaks Sundae – two healthy mounds of Vanilla ice cream on a hot blondie.
Speaking of hot blondies, I caught up with Carla and asked her what it was like to work in such an intense, high-paced environment with her fellow Twin Peaks girls.
“I love it,” Carla beams, “The uniforms are hot; we have good business; and it’s like a sorority – we’re all like sisters.”
The uniforms aren’t the only hot items at Twin Peaks either. Guests can choose from a variety of novelty tees and other fun items. I suggest the Twin Peaks Mousepad – great for the wrist!
