    This place works well if you’re using the park and fly program. Very pleasant venue and nice bar area. Doubt would be a destination place for dinner but food is adequate if getting rid of hunger is the objective.

    We had a short wait for a table to be set for 5, despite our reservation. There is a nice variety and all our meals were delicious. Unfortunately they are not open for lunch, or we would be back sooner.

    we were on vacation, having eaten at several ethnic restaurants, Greek, Italian and Indian and this was delicious Americana. Recommend it to anybody who wants quality food. Also one of our guest eats gluten free and they were able to accommodate us.

    Very nice little restaurant and the food was quite good. Even though you don’t eat there it’s worth taking a run downstairs to see the underwater bar areq

    i cannot say enough about the Cafe and the Veranda Bar. we had rented the Veranda room for private event the Food and Beverage manager Michael had preselected some snacks based on our count of attendees ..the snacks were delish, everyone really enjoyed them and there was plenty of them. set for 25 attendees lasted thru about 35 people and although we did not rent the Veranda Bar, they allowed our guests to overflow into the bar area..plenty of room, many of people sat at the bar and they really enjoyed themselves. AFter the event was over, a few of us had dinner in the Cafe..good food, not expensive.. Definitely recommend - they are easy to work with, prices are manageable..

    Very nice, greeted by Marco, the bartender who also took our order and was our server for the evening. Quiet and not too many people in the bar area. The dining room had a few woolens at the tables and it appeared that the noise level was low also. I had the Mushroom Risotto that arrived hot and tasty. Not gooey like some restaurants. My wife had the Bay Shrimp Louie salad that had plenty of shrimp and other makings. Very tasty. Our appetizer was Fried calamari. Not the best and very different than what is served at most restaurants. Too bad more people don’t frequent the Terrace Cafe. They will be pleased if they do.
