Diner Reviews
  • "We had the eggplant Neapolitan. It looked great, but when you got down to taste, it was too tomatoey and saucy, no other flavor to it. We were looking forward to a nice dinner and since we are vegetarian chose the eggplant. Salad, bread, and the tiramisu were good. Wouldn't go back!"

  • "The Terrace Room was a nice find in New Buffalo. It's close to the main artery, and easy to find. It is not too large, so the noise (we were outside ) level is good if you have any hearing issues. We had a nice birthday celebration and the food was outstanding. The unusual endive/asparagus salad was amazing. The Friday choices of seafood and vegetarian are numerous. I enjoyed the whole evening, and especially the fire outside, some'mores and general ambiance was a nice surprise to find. We will definitely make this our restaurant of choice in New Buffalo."

  • "My husband and I love this whole dinning experience. The staff is professional, friendly and attuned to your needs. The drinks are generous, wine list affordable, and the ambience comfortable and we love the winter view. We come to the H. Grand every year for 10 years, with family, friends etc. we especially enjoy the pasta dishes, and the special chicken entrées. Wayne is the best!! He is on top of every thing. Bartender/waitress, night of March 9,2014 was also excellent! (Forgot her name) Keep up the excellent work and delicious food!"

  • "Great spot to sneak away and enjoy the quaint size and breath-taking views! Our server was fantastic as usual, appetizers were outstanding (we had the baked asiago & goat cheese app & Bruschetta app), and the entrees were exceptional (Seafood Cioppino, Pappardelle Bolognese, Chicken Cacciatore and the special of the evening which was a Lobster w/ risotto). Nice selection of wines, vodkas, and local beers. Highly recommend and we will certainly be back. Cheers!!!"

  • "This was our first time at the Terrace Room but it won't be our last. It was very cozy and romantic. My husband and I had a wonderful dinner next the the fireplace. It was freezing cold outside but we were comfortable inside. The food was very good and the pear martini is my new favorite. I would definitely recommend the Terrace Room to others."

  • "My girlfriend and I ate here on Valentine's Day. The food was terrific, and the prices were very reasonable. I expected to shell out $30 per plate, but this was not the case - our entrees were each well under $20. Service was very good. Our waitress was very attentive while at the same time not hovering nor bothering us. The view was great, we had seats by the window overlooking Lake Michigan. On the other side of the glass was an outdoor, open fireplace where we were able to make s'mores. I will definitely go back here again. I recommend it to anyone looking for a romantic getaway, or even just a night away with your loved one."

  • "We have been going to the Harbor Grand several times a year for several years. Within the past couple years we discovered the gem of the Terrace Room. Previously we would eat somewhere else in town. Now, we wouldn't miss the Terrace Room for at least one meal on every visit. The service, the atmosphere, the people and the food are always excellent. We love this place. Everyone is so helpful and friendly; it is wonderful to have the fireplace inside and the fire pit outside. There is a feeling of a lodge in a perfect venue and delicious food no matter what we choose on the menu. Definitely a favorite spot of ours in this or any other town."

  • "I owe a very big THANK YOU, to everyone that worked on Sunday 2/16. I proposed to my girlfriend that evening and it couldn't have worked and gone off as smooth as it did without everyone's help! A special Thank You to the host, who I was able to hand off my camera to and caught our special moment through a barrage of photos! On top of the outstanding service and friendly staff, the food was excellent and ambience perfect for a romantic evening!"

  • "This had become our "go to" restaurant in the area, always finding it an excellent value and above average experience start to end. This time around - not so. First, it was a good thing we weren't in a hurry since we weren't seated until 20 minutes after our reservation time. Second, both entrées were not up to par. The ravioli was overcooked -- even tough around the edges. The chicken cacciatore was flavorful and tender, but, also overdone. Service was again quite good and it is a lovely room. So far only the one bad meal out of 5 times visiting, so, we'll chalk it up to an off night."

  • "A great place for great food and service. Entire staff is friendly and helpful. I had the Pappardelle alla Boscaila. Housemade pappardelle with braised short ribs, portabella mushrooms, and porcine cream sauce. Unbelievably good. My wife had the Butternut Squash Risotto which was also very good. The food is always good and the service is always great. Their tiramisu is outstanding."

  • "We drove in from Goshen, IN and ate at the Terrace Room based on the location and the reviews. It was well worth the drive. Food was excellent, service was fantastic, place was beautiful. We are coming back for a weekend next summer, can not wait."

Truly delightful in every respect. Food was exquisite, service outstanding and atmosphere was delightful. I cannot recommend this restaurant more highly. YOU MUST TRY IT! I will be back in the future. This place is high on my priority list for return dining experiences. Kudos to all involved."
