Gluten-Free Dining

As the premier gluten-free restaurant in Rochester, Minnesota, Twigs Tavern & Grille is dedicated to providing a unique and safe gluten-free dining experience. Twigs owner Michelle Salz was diagnosed with celiac disease in 2008. As a key person in menu-development, she and Chef Luci reinvented a way to continue to create wonderful dishes for Twigs.  We pay close attention to our menu and only add new items when we can create gluten-free versions that don't sacrifice quality or flavor. Through careful research, management and staff training, and personal life experiences, Twigs provides you with a relaxing dining experience where you can feel completely taken care of.

Here at Twigs, we are proficient in gluten-free cooking and cross-contamination avoidance. Our gluten-free menu is carefully prepared in a separate gluten-free kitchen complete with dedicated storage, prep areas, and appliances. Enjoy a fantastic selection of small plates and entrées showcasing fresh flavors and quality ingredients while having the peace of mind that your meal is truly gluten free. 

In addition to verbal confirmation of your gluten-free meal, these steps are also taken:

-Your meal is prepared in a separate, dedicated gluten free kitchen

-Gluten free meals will be served on our dedicated GF Plates 

- Your meal will have a gluten free pick

- Your takeout and delivery orders will come in a yellow bag and have a GF sticker or stamp on the packaging


Patio at night


There’s just something special about patio dining. Sip a cold drink and nibble on small plates while dining al fresco on the outdoor patios at Twigs Tavern & Grille. We’ve set up cozy tables and chairs among glowing fires and a meandering stream, so the quiet trickle of water remains in the background of your conversation. The newest addition to our outdoor dining is a sprawling garden + seating area separate from our main patio. During the warm weather months, enjoy the colors of the flowers by day, and the glow of dozens of lanterns by night. 

Awarded Best Outdoor Dining by Rochester Magazine, our patio features gas heaters to warm you up on chilly nights and a sumptuous menu with memorable items. Our patios are the perfect spot to social-distance while still having a special dining experience.

From new spins on classic sandwiches, creative small plates you’ll love, and handcrafted cocktails, we are constantly evolving and changing to offer you an expansive menu full of noteworthy flavors and plenty of allergen-safe options.  

Glowy chandeliers, antique gold-mirrored ceilings, amber lighting, tall booths and rustic tables make Twigs an inviting space to enjoy everything on our menu from our signature Hot Rock dining experience to our award-winning Butternut Squash Ravioli.
