At Twist Sports Bar & Grill, visitors sup on zesty Cajun cuisine while 32 flat-screen TVs showing live sporting events keep eyeballs occupied. Much like a Lynyrd Skynyrd–themed karaoke night, the menu entertains with inventive interpretations of Southern favorites, such as the Charleston spring rolls ($6.99), a combination of shrimp and grits in a crispy casing. The pan-crusted Cajun catfish ($9.99) arrives lightly breaded and drizzled in white-pepper-caper aioli. Half-pound burgers develop Southern accents thanks to extensive work with dialect coaches and countrified toppings such as fried green tomatoes ($8.99). The buttermilk-honey-pecan fried chicken ($10.49) bears all the coatings in its name and comes with crawfish mac 'n' cheese. Those with adventurous palates can wrestle the gator linguine ($11.99), in which morsels of grilled alligator mingle with pasta topped with Cajun white-wine butter sauce.
A wraparound bar serves as the pub’s centerpiece, with an arsenal of flat-screen televisions speckling the 5,000-square-foot space. Diners dive into their Cajun comestibles in the glow of purple and blue lighting or outdoors on an open-air patio. Audio stimulation arrives courtesy of Charleston’s notable music talent base and tuning-fork cutlery.
