Terrapin is was awesome! A must visit if in Rhinebeck or near the area. Great place for everyone. As a vegetarian, I love going to a restaurant with meals that I can eat (besides a salad or plate of vegetables). My Finance is a meat eater and had the best porkchop hes every had at Terrapin! Literally something for everyone,... More

We went to the bistro section of Terrapin on a Tuesday afternoon when most other places in Rhinebeck were closed. (as was apparently the formal restaurant). Service was cheerful and efficient, ambience and decor were warm and inviting. The menu had enormous flexibility from sandwiches and burgers to warm dishes, though the pasta dishes were not available before 5pm. Food... More

Oyster Po'Boys are insane... great place for drinks, dinner and fun. A local date night hotspot. Patio is open most of the year, thanks to the propane heaters.

Absolutely amazing. I have been here 5 times and have been impressed each time. The pork chop, short rib, and ahi tuna are all excellent. The local beer selection is very good as well. Highly recommend!

My spouse and I dined Red Bistro at Terrapin for lunch on a Saturday afternoon in late September 2015. Terrapin itself is open only for dinner daily, while the more casual Red Bistro is open for both lunch and dinner daily. Terrapin accepts reservations via telephone or using the Open Table system, but Red Bistro does not accept reservations. Terrapin... More

Great food, but rude service spoiled a lovely evening. We arrived for our 9:30 reservation and was told that our table was being cleaned, however two other couples were seated before us when they arrived after us and had reservations at the same time and same # in their party. The waitress was not very friendly and not helpful when... More

We went to dine on the first day of year 2016 and found our server not to be not attentive and needed reminders to bring drinks, bread and get the order right. Dave was a disappointment. My meal was fine and delicious but my wife order came out wrong and the vegetables were cold. The broccoli was under cooked and... More

I'm a local so frequently out in town looking for a bite to eat. We frequent Terrapin's Bistro Bar frequently as its busy but not over-crowded, the bar/wait staff are friendly and responsive. The food and drink are reasonably priced and of good quality. There are many options in Rhinebeck but this one is a good place to start or... More

Cold, impersonal restaurant with average food & service. The pizza/bar that is on the other side is the place to go. I had to send back my entire meal - meat tough & inedible. The salmon they replaced it with was 1/2 a portion. At that point, I did not care. We could not wait to leave. The restaurant was... More
