    Our server, Mia, was perfect. Fun, guiding, efficient, knowledgeable ... wonderful. Terrapin has my two favorite cocktails: The Caribbean old fashioned and the Barolo Manhattan. The duck dish was perfection. The pastas amazing. So pleased to have visited twice in one week during VAB vacay. Thank you! Tracy

    Great dinner with my wife, my mom and our cousin from England. Mom said the softshell crab was the best she had this season! It was a very enjoyable evening!

    Terrapins has become our new favorite restaurant in the area. I had dined there once years ago and decided to try it again about three weeks. We enjoyed it so much that we were back again last night. The food is excellent. There is a creative flair with the sauces or the accompaniments that come with the main dish. The peanut butter dessert is excellent combining sweet and salty into a great taste. The service is excellent and Brian is dedicated to making sure that the guests all have a wonderful experience. He is also a sommelier with great taste. He shares his knowledge in a way that enhances the experience and allows you to learn in addition to enjoying good food and wine. The restaurant has been very busy both Saturdays when we dined there. There is lots of energy that could make more difficult for some to have quiet conversations. In that case go a little later in the evening. In our case Brian was able to get us quieter tables in the back. Thank you again to everyone at Terrapin for a great experience.
