This restaurant was the best meal we had on vacation!! The staff was very attentive and friendly. The martinis are so good, icy cold!! They had a great assorted basket of bread with hummus and choice greek or house salad that comes with the meal. We had the Fried Lobster tail and the baked oyster for an appetizers. For dinner...

The food was very good I had lamb chops (very small) but delicious with a potato dish, everyone else had something similar like fish, etc.... It was all good I think the lamb chops were over 30 dollars alone. The restaurant is in an old house with uneven floors so not a real "high class" feel for the prices. I... More

We are in Destin about 20 days a year and look forward to dining out every night. We set aside about 2 nights a week for places that are new to us. This was our first visit to The Terrace. From the outside, we were a bit concerned that we might be at the wrong place. The outside is rather... More

I had asked on a different website for advice where to dine on the west end of PCB and The Terrace was highly recommended. When we mentioned it to our daughter & son-in-law who live in Lynn Haven they also advised this was one of their favorite restaurants. Everything was great, I had the grilled shrimp and my husband had... More

I have been going to the Terrace for many years now, and still I can say, it is always phenomenal!! It is a 'Mom N Pop' type place which owned and managed by a very dedicated family. I think the most difficult part for them is finding and maintaining good help. I don't envy them at all in that department.... More

We have been visiting the Panama City/Destin, Fla. area for years and have visited the Terrace Restaurant many times over the past few years and have never been disappointed. The food is high quality with reasonable prices... the hard part is ordering something other than the Fried Shrimp, it is amazing. This family business is friendly with the mother/daughter servers...

Very good food and relaxing with great service. The chef Tom and daughter visited our table and discussed the food and menu that had great seafood creations. We had the fried lobster tail appetizer, our first ever fried and it was great. Our waitress reminded us that "you are in the south now". We had grouper and pork temderloin, both... More

This restaurant has been recommended to us by some very knowledgable folks. We finally got around to trying it out. We have wasted a lot of time - this is the best restaurant in Bay County - hands down. Katherine and her staff have a wonderful little place. It is quiet, it is delightful, and the food is to die...
