“Date Night”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

While we live outside of Raleigh, there's no need to make the travel up 40, for a nice dinner. Terrafin has yet to disspoint!! Service is (usually) superb! We always sit in the bar area for a more relaxed dinner/cocktails!!

“Great value and great taste”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

There is talent in the kitchen at TerraFin. Fish, steak, chicken, pasta--everything is delicious. The service is warm and quick, and if anything is amiss, the staff will make it right. The desserts I've tried have also been praiseworthy.

“Will not return”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

I have dined here 4 times and each time, the food has been average. I have tried various entrees as well as appetizers and each time ended in the same result - bland food. This past Saturday was the final time. After our dinner party ordered our entrées and waited for an excessive period of time (they were not that busy), they brought 3 plates out, then another 5 minutes passed and they brought out 2 more and finally after another 10 minutes, the last 3 diners at our table were served their food. In addition to that, one of my side items was no longer available and instead of the waiter returning to find out my preference, the kitchen staff made the decision to serve me undercooked asparagus. There are numerous other fine dining places out in this area and I will not be returning to the Terra Fin Station again.

“Wow! Off the beaten path, on the right road.”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

This is a remarkable little restaurant, tucked away and not what you'd expect. The steaks are great, the fried oysters fabulous, the vegetables and sides everything you can ask for. The desserts are very, very good, especially the chocolate brownies made with stout.
The service was a bit haphazard, but then it was early on Sunday, and the place was dragging. I suspect its better when the bartender isn't the only one waiting tables, too.
There's nothing not to like here: good to great food, low prices, good variety, and acceptable wines and bar drinks.
You just can't go wrong.
