“Best Fried Shrimp Ever”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

We have been visiting the Panama City/Destin, Fla. area for years and have visited the Terrace Restaurant many times over the past few years and have never been disappointed. The food is high quality with reasonable prices... the hard part is ordering something other than the Fried Shrimp, it is amazing. This family business is friendly with the mother/daughter servers and the father as Chef. Incredible talent with the food quality and menu. We love coming here and visit every time we are in this area. The wine list is very good and the martinis are incredibly good. Don't miss this locals favorite and hidden treasure.

“Easy to miss this charming place”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

Went on a Saturday night, without a reservation. We were seated right away. They have nice wines by the glass. The food was superb. I had the parmesan crusted chicken which was served wirh a few fried shrimp, my husband had the shrimp & grits.
We were very pleased to see a Twomey Merlot on the wine list. We had visited that winery on our honeymoon 10 years ago, so of course we ordered it.
We'll definitely be back.

“Fine dining”
Reviewed April 18, 2014 via mobile

Very good food and relaxing with great service. The chef Tom and daughter visited our table and discussed the food and menu that had great seafood creations. We had the fried lobster tail appetizer, our first ever fried and it was great. Our waitress reminded us that "you are in the south now". We had grouper and pork temderloin, both were served hot and plenty of extras and bread. Very good wine selections by glass or bottle. A little on the high end for our budget but well worth it. We will return.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

This restaurant has been recommended to us by some very knowledgable folks. We finally got around to trying it out. We have wasted a lot of time - this is the best restaurant in Bay County - hands down. Katherine and her staff have a wonderful little place. It is quiet, it is delightful, and the food is to die for. We had a couple of dishes which might have been mundane it a differnet setting but we couldn't stop raving about how good they were. This is our new favorite restaurant and the one to which we will be taking all of our visitors from up north.

“Nothing like the Personal Touch”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Going to the beach and ordering Lamb Chops for dinner might seem a bit odd to some, but for the best that I have found on the east coast, this is the place for them. For a warm wonderful atmosphere, some fantastic food, give this place a shot. I have been coming here as often as I can when I get to the coast, it will always be one of the top of my list.
