We attended the once a month "Mouthwatering Monday" seven course wine dinner at Swan Terrace Restaurant at the Founders Inn last week and all I can say is, "Wow". This is real gourmet fare; the wines were terrific and the value for the money is amazing. I think Swan Terrace is the best kept secret in Virginia Beach!

Our Mouth Watering Monday’s are certainly a treat and I am so glad that you were able to come and experience our wonderful pairing of local American traditions with featured wines from here in the States. Thank you so much for your feedback; while I must say some secrets are worth sharing and I certainly hope you will share ours. On behalf of the Swan Terrace at the Founders Inn and Spa, it was a pleasure to have you dine with us and we certainly hope to see you again soon.
Sincerely,

As I walked into the Swan terrace my sense were over come by all the delicious
smells and the band playing live music. My server Shannon was very attentive and pleasant(which is hard to come by). The food!!! I tried the lobster tail and it was out of this word, it was so full of flavor, just melt in your mouth delicious yummy goodness.The BBQ pork was good, but my heart was won over by the lobster. Not to say I didn't get seconds of BBQ pork. I am not a big fan of bread pudding, but this made my toes curls up and my eyes roll back in my head need I say more. I will definitely go back for more. Can't wait what's in store for my next visit!

I am so thrilled to hear about how wonderful your experience was during our All American Cookout. What better way to celebrate Independence Day Eve then with great food, great service, and a live band. On behalf of the Swan Terrace at the Founders Inn and Spa I would love to invite you back to come and try our other signature events such as our award winning Sunday Brunch. We feature live music, action stations, a seafood bar with oysters, shrimp, smoked salmon, and fresh cooked crab cakes, and save room for our enormous dessert bar. Hope to see you soon.

We went for the BBQ buffet on the terrace. Waitstaff was very friendly. Many options for entrees and desserts. Waitstaff was a little slow but we were in no rush.

On all of our signature buffets we love to give our guests a wide array of different options, ranging from fresh house made salads, to delicious selections of entrees, to the best part, our wonderful dessert bar provided by our in house bakery. If you thought our Jazzed Up Tuesday On The Terrace Buffet had a good selection of entrees and desserts, then I hope you would be willing to join us for our Award Winning Sunday Brunch which has even more options to choose from. In regards to service, thank you for your feedback as we will use it to continually improve upon. On behalf of the Swan Terrace at the Founders Inn in and Spa, thank you for coming to visit and we hope to see you again at another one of our signature events.

This was the location of our rehearsal reception. It was appetizer and drinks. It was a wonderful location to catch up and socialize.
