The old church converted into a restaurant is indeed a unique and cool place. The lunch menus has a good selection and the food is a good value for the $$$. Staff is friendly and welcoming.

The service was slow and our waiter repeatedly disappeared. The. food was spotty. Some dishes were acceptable but several disappointed. The appetizers and desserts were much better than the entrees. Cheese plate was excellent, short ribs were dry and bland.

Recommended for lunch. Beautiful surroundings. Ordered the burger, which was noticeably smaller in circumference than the roll. Free toppings were a fun option. Carmelized onions were quite nice. Ample portion of flavored fries, but they were not hot. Disappointing.

We loved our meal at Terrapin. The restaurant is beautiful, with old church details and awesome iron-look chandeliers. The food was delicious (I really loved the squash soup), and the waitstaff were super fun and attentive.

Its been quite a while since we went to The Terrapin. We thought we'd give it a try and were very pleased. The food and service were excellent. The staff was attentive but not pushy. The salads and entrees were very well prepared and bountiful.
