Absolutely terrible food. Overpriced glop from a can, and the $6 "chili con queso" is literally a bowl of melted cheese. We lost our appetites halfway through and had to awkwardly decline take-home boxes for our uneaten "food." You have been warned.

Terrapin has been the one constant presence for Mexican food in the Bloomsburg area for years. Their food has always been good, but there has been and ebb and flow over the years. Recently I've noticed a new vitality to the place. The food is better, the ambiance improved. The have the BEST salsa anywhere within an hour of Bloomsburg.... More

After a creepy and disappointing dinner at playa cancun down the street, we complained to our neighbor who recommended Terrapins. She said "they have maragaritas there and they are delicious, i should have told you PC doesnt have alcohol." Uh yeah, you think. Either way, the atmosphere is great here. Not a complaint at all for me. The complaint comes... More

I went once and the place was gorgeous.  The server was not to knowledgeable other than the Mexican food is an American variation from Colorado.  My husband and i are big fans of Mexican food.  But this by far is very different even compared to Mexican food even in Colorado. The burrito with carne asada is what i had ordered... More

Since our favorite Mexican restaurant had I fire we wanted a good mex meal. Not here the food was bland mushy and dissatisfing. The price was high for what you got I had gotten the enchilada with chicken it was nasty and the rice concoction the served was a mush of vegetables and pepper. I will not be returning here

Same stuff, same atmosphere, same service. At least they're consistent! Nice enough place, but the bar seems to be the focus here.

This is a nice little place on rte 11 in bloomsburg. They have a decent selection of beer, which is especially nice if you are going takeout on a Sunday, thanks to PA's archaic liquor laws. Staff is friendly, service is quick, the menu has variety, the food above average, portions fair sized, and the prices affordable. Worth a visit.... More
