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...

I had the parmesan crusted chicken which was served wirh a few fried shrimp, my husband had the shrimp & grits. We were very pleased to see a Twomey Merlot on the wine list. We had... More

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...

Going to the beach and ordering Lamb Chops for dinner might seem a bit odd to some, but for the best that I have found on the east coast, this is the place for them. For a warm wonderful atmosphere, some fantastic food, give this place a shot. I have been coming here as often as I can when I... More

This is fine dining within walking distance of the beach. Not the place for the typical family with kids and a desire for fried shrimp and French fries but if you want to get away from all that and enjoy a marvelous meal with a good bottle of wine then this is it. We ate there twice the week we... More

Called and made reservations for 7:00 p.m. Actually, left message on the answering machine but someone called back to confirm. Showed up early and was immediately seated. Waitress and staff was extremely attentive. Calamari was good, filet was very good, lamb chops were good. Very nice place with wait staff that is eager to please. Very good experience.

I had to leave a comment when I came across this post "Worst Service Ever!" The Terrace is my favorite place to eat. I go there every time I'm in town. They have the best food and martinis on the beach. I feel sorry for the people who could not stay for HOT and FRESHLY prepared food. They missed the... More
