Great experience in a great atmosphere as always! The new fall menu is fantastic, shrimp jambalaya was great, quinoa fritters were delicious, and so was the buratta salad. Thanks Terrain for the great evening.

The food was great, three of our party ordered the pre fixe and were very happy with the quality and quantity of each course. The service was friendly, but not too much. We had a great time, the atmosphere is wonderful.

Everything was delicious, staff was great as usual. I made the reservation for my wedding anniversary, married at terrain and there was a section where it asks if there’s remarks like occasions and so on so i went ahead and stated it was a special occasion so maybe we could be put at a table in a nicer corner or somewhere with less foot traffic but that didnt hapen. It was all still very nice i just would have liked our anniversary lunch to be a little special. Will still go back when we can as the place means a lot to us.

Every year come back to Terrains for our wedding anniversary and never have been disappointed. Mushroom soup, squash salad and a grilled cheese that I could only eat half and enjoyed later that evening. Enjoyed the brunch and a stroll through their gift shop and bought up several plants in their nursery. Class act and worth the pilgrimage once a year visit from Cape May.

Had the harvest bowl with chicken. So good.
The servers were so nice. They even gave my daughter a birthday cookie and candle even though we insisted her birthday wasn’t for another month.

This was my second dining experience at Terrain and both, were fantastic! On my most recent visit, I brought a friend to celebrate her birthday. Our waitress was awesome providing excellent service, and cognizant of the fact that we were catching up and opening gifts, allowed time without being intrusive. Our meal began with a delicious mushroom soup and the chickpea board, followed by grilled cheese with fig jam and the Burrata salad with clementines and roasted beets. The food was well thought out and the flavor combinations were delectable with every bite. I am a foodie and love writing critics on restaurants! I highly recommend Terrain at Glenn Mills!

The food was wonderful!! Best cheesecake ever! Shrimp and grits were delicious! Service was a little slow early on. But once we were greeted, it was attentive. Reluctant to criticize, it's no secret that restaurants are in need of more help. Bought 2 gift certificates for Christmas gifts on the way out! We will return, and with enough time to check out the shop.

I was not impressed with the food. It was plated nicely but not up to par. I order the butternut squash salad. I thought that roasted butternut would be a significant ingredient in the salad. I was served a large bowl of spinach tossed heavily with dressing. There was a sprinkle of nuts & pieces of butternut squash that were the size of green peas. The dish did not mirror the description in the menu.

Beautiful, as always! The food is prepared and presented in such a nice way - everything is delicious and they will gladly modify. Our server suggested adding avocado to the salmon toast and that made it perfect both in taste and visual appeal. A favorite spot for ladies lunch or adult dinner.

Terrain is a great little escape, especially if you’re a gardener. Having the cafe there is icing on the cake. The food and service are wonderful and even if you’re seated inside, it’s still like being in a garden

Delicious. Getting our meal was a bit slow but our server and the team more than made up for it. Free drinks, an extra large cookie to go. The meal was worth the wait. We shared a bitter nut squash and spinach salad to start with that yummy bread in a flower pot and homemade flavored butter. Finally we got a delicious gigantic burger, a gigantic grilled cheese, and a mound of piping hot French fries.

We will absolutely be back. The kind and informative waitress alone is worth a repeat visit and sitting surrounded by lovely trees makes this extra special.

I love going to Terrain! It's such a unique atmosphere and always just puts me in the best mood. Their food is phenomenal! The mushroom soup is legendary... one spoonful and your mouth is just, well, happy! The service is always great and so it the bread backed in pots with the amazing butter! The shops there too are awesome and I always walk away with something cute for my house (and usually leftovers). If you haven't been here, run! What are you waiting for????

Terrain has added some truly delicious sweet and savory meals for the fall. From the maple late to the sweet brioche French toast to the savory shrimp and grits, everything was amazing. Hats off to the atmosphere with flavor.

I used to love Terrain but yesterday’s lunch was a huge disappointment. The best part of the meal were the bread and the fries. My bowl had root vegetables that weren’t cooked and therefore not edible. It also looked like half of the portion had been eaten already. My friends omelette was cold. The server was nice but after this experience I wouldn’t likely return to eat.
