I live in Harbortown and Don the COO used to live in my building. ANTHONY is such a loss. He was one of credentials and class—with THE UTMOST of guaranteed service. Way underpaid for his high-level performance.

We stopped up for a drink before dinner at Paulette‘s. The view was beautiful, but my Tanqueray and tonic was probably the worst I’ve ever had. I am not even sure that it was tonic. Would it be too much to ask for a slice...of lime or lemon? My companion's rum and tonic was no better. I could not even taste any rum. These are not complicated drinks. So the drinks were one star and the view was five star.More

Very disappointed. Reviews and food on site looked great. But it was likely overrated due to fantastic view and ambiance - menu was not fine dining and mediocre like you’d find in a hotel bar. Service was polite friendly and Kyle the bartender too! If...you are a foodie— not so great. Chicken over-cooked, sliders, too. Best thing on menu was juniper fusion (drink) and shrimp.More

The view of the river in open air with the crisp fall air was absolutely perfect. We enjoyed a starter of duck quesadillas. The Tennessee peach tea, autumn salad, filet mignon and Brussel sprouts were all delicious. The dining area is small, so I’d recommend...reservations. Would highly recommend this for a special evening out!More

Go look at the bridge light show from 8 to 10. Great drinks and food. Get the lamb sliders or anything on the menu, it is all good.

It was wonderful to find an open air place to eat during covid visit. For some males, these small plates will not be enough, but it was perfect for my teen and I. Waiting staff was very friendly. This place is located inside a condo...community, but there are a couple of restaurants in the center. I am glad we explored and went here. We had trouble with covid with lines at classic spots and overcrowding in restaurants in other places. It was perfect here.More

I just finished celebrating a wonderful anniversary at The Terrace. Jackie, the manager, was extremely attentive and even upgraded our seats for a better view of the beige. Our server, Nick, was an absolute delight! He kept us laughing all night! The cocktails were some...of the best and Jackie mixed us an amazing Chocolate Martini. I definitely recommend coming here on any special occasion. 💕More

Went for drinks to The Terrace and stayed for dinner. The staff is so friendly and professional. Lindsey the bartender is a master mixologist and a mind reader. She ensured that our glass was never empty. The manager, Jackie, was attentive and checked on us...often. Staff members Taylor and Nick provided excellent service and helped us with menu choices accommodating of our diet restrictions. I loved my experience at The Terrrace and will return when I’m back in town.More

Wanted a special Valentine's dinner with my wife. Read about Terrace and thought it sounded great. First, what was or could be good? Service was excellent. The location/view could be fabulous. Our evening was cold and overcast. So, no sunset for us. Now, for the...disappointment. They had a "special" Valentine's menu that turned out to be completely underwhelming. My wife and I both started with the lobster bisque. It was thin (definitely not a bisque) and salty. Description said "Maine lobster garnish," but should have said, "a few minced lobster nibbles." For entrees, my wife had the redfish and I had filet mignon. Both were bland. I actually had to ask for salt and pepper. Though the filet was a very good piece of meat, it hadn't even had salt and pepper put on it. For dessert, she had the crepe and I had cream brulee. They were both OK, but nothing special. I don't mind dropping $180 for a special dinner, if the food is too notch. This was nowhere close. Go to Flight instead!More

Watch the sundown and the lights on the Bridge. Gorgeous. Unfortunately my waiter was more interested in yakking away at another table than serving me. When I finally called his attention, he said 1 sec. Then he came by and tripped the knife from a...pkate on my lap and said it's only a knife". In short, he ruined the bliss I got from the view.More

We ended our wedding weekend at the Terrace. Initially, we planned to eat at Paulette’s, but did not make reservations on time. Although the menu can’t be anywhere close to what you might choose from at Paulette’s, it did offer something for everyone. (Maybe not...strict vegans, but since I’m “fish vegan” or “veganish” it was perfect.) I could regale you with the minutiae of the meal and the drinks, but the star of the night was a close tie between the incredible sunset view and the incredible service courtesy of Nick. We wanted for nothing and he was friendly without being intrusive and took an amazing picture of us surrounded by the sunset view. They do not take reservations and there are only a handful of tables. We arrived mere minutes after they opened and there were only two empty tables. Initially, we were disappointed that there was not a table for two available against the windows, but due to the table configuration, there is not a bad table or view in the whole place. Get there early, pray you get Nick and enjoy an evening on the river.More

I would recommend calling them. We did not have a reservation when we went recently -- 2 of us - and, we had a window table. Great views, food and drinks.
