A simple twist of fate brought us to the North Carolina restaurant business and we bring our honest, hardworking, community-focused, and fun atmosphere to work with us every day. Without the support of our friends, family, and the Cleveland area locals, we would not be here!

Simple Twist offers brunch at all locations on Sundays, along with regular lunch and dinner throughout the week. Our cocktails are specialty made and you have to try our Bloody Mary with your brunch! We offer patio seating as well as take out ordering if you are in a hurry but don't want to miss out on an extraordinary meal. We also offer catering for your special events.
