“Heavy handed seasoning”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We went with another couple who were regulars. The seafood corn chowder was excellent and worth the trip. The rest, so heavily seasoned it was hard to enjoy. The Caesar salad was heavy with garlic and the shrimp with chili powder that you could not taste the other ingredients. Our friends did say it was usually much better, Service was good but stilted, with many, "very goods" and commentaries on the excellence of our choices.
The restaurant itself was charming, though tables were tiny and we often did not have room for all of the plates. Bartender was great!

“Wait staff is terrible”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

The a server we had was terrible. After taking our drink order, we waited 20 mins before she brought the wrong drink and told two of our party their bottle of wine wasn't available (it took that long to realize that?). 40 mins after being seated, this server still hadn't taken our order. Only after complaining to the manager were we given another server. Given the variety of nice restaurants in the area, I will not bother returning here again.

“Nice Dinner - could have been better”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

I love Terry B's and dine there frequently. It is a nice alternative to the overpriced mediocre restaurant scene in Ann Arbor. There were four of us at dinner - a birthday celebration for two of the guests. I ordered the special - Baramundi which was delicious. The other guests ordered perch and the goat cheese tartlet and were equally happy with their choice. My partner ordered the filet minon - which he always orders when we dine there. He loves it. This time it was a disappointment. The cut of meat was just not up to the usual quality. He decided not to send it back - he did not want to cause an incident because of the special occasion. The rest of the dinner was delightful and I am certain that we will return. He will not be ordering the filet mignon again.

“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

We were worried about going here becasue the restaurant it replaced was excellent. We were not disappointed and actually like the unpretentious atmosphere much better. Very good food, very nicely remodeled interior.

“Great for special occasions”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

A great restaurant for special occasions. We typically come here once or twice a year, and always enjoy it. The food is well prepared, and the service is very good. Definitely worth driving to Dexter for.
