Terrapin is one of the very best restaurants in VB. The meals are great and well worth the asking price. It is a small place, so service is impeccable with minimal competition from other diners for a server’s attention. The downside is you should definitely...More

What a great Restaurant! I heard this was good, but had no idea. Fine dining at the beach! They don't advertise to the beach crowd, because they serve the locals, so this is a real find!

One of the best in Virginia Beach near the Ocean Front. Make reservations! If not, there is a bar and patio that usually has availability. The larger the group the more time it will take especially if some order appetizers and other don't so make...More

My third annual trip to Terrapin Restaurant did not disappoint. From the charming waiter to the fabulous food, it was a lovely experience. I have recommended it to all of my friends and consider it one of the best restaurants in the state.

Yeah; I'd stick with that and nice shoes. You won't need a jacket-but, if you did have one you wouldn't feel overdressed if you decided to wear it. It's a first class place and yet not pretentious at all.
