We were disappointed in almost every part of our dinners. This is an expensive place to go for a meal, but we had anticipated a great meal and didn't mind splurging. Our waitress was a sweet person and we enjoyed her service, even if a...More

Had lunch with my wife and friend today. The ambience was fine "old Florida".There was nothing wrong with the service and my wife pronounced the tuna as delicious. There was somewhat less of a glorious reception for the quiche which my friend ordered. It was...More

Had the Stuffed Seazfood Mannicote not very appetizing. Over cooked with much cheese. Better at Olive Garden. Plus the food is overpriced. My wife had meatloaf which dry and at $26 not worth the price. The fried onion swirls was ok, to greasy for a...More

Nice atmosphere. Only thing I've ever had is the meatloaf dinner, but I go back for that same dinner at least once a year, because it's the best meatloaf ever. Also costs more than any meatloaf dinner I've ever had, but it's worth it once...More

Always good, always good food and service. A nice atmosphere. Upscale. Not crowded. Noisy because of high ceilings but a nice, antiquated restaurant..

Food was excellent. Service was excellent. We had a splendid lunch here catching up with family. Although we hadn't stayed, the Hotel appears to be very nice. If in this area again we would make it a point to return to the Terrace!

Three words...Banana Flambé waffles! Put the Terrace Grille on your bucket list for places to have breakfast. Banana Flambé waffles are a special treat.

For me, the Terrace is special occasion dining - elegant, white linen style! I see on the website that there is a great deal on a frequent diner card with drinks, breakfast, dinners all 2-4-1. I haven't tried the card, but it would be a...More

I've been eating at The Terrace Grille since it opened nearly 20 years ago. It is a terrific room - high windows and ceilings, beautifully restored, pecky cypress ceilings, and chandeliers restored from the hotel's founding in the 1920's - yet the room is light,...More
