The Red Bistro is the casual, no reservations bar/restaurant of the Terrapin. Nice menu, interesting drink selection (including a tasty non-alcoholic seltzer drink with cider vinegar, cider and maple syrup). It’s loud but cheerful. The service was very, very slow. Also, I ordered vegetarian crepes...More

Terrapin's a long-standing solid choice in Rhinebeck and the Hudson Valley. The food is inventive and delicious, and although sometimes they miss the mark, it's not by much if they do. The drinks are excellent and the tapas were yummy last visit: shishitos, devilled eggs,...More

We had a nice meal here, tasting the soul food platter and a steak sandwich. The service was good. Only criticism would be the steak had obviously been sitting around a while as it was at best lukewarm on arrival. It's a very unusual looking...More

There were no crowds during my visit to Terrapin so there was no noise at dinner. The food was delicious and the setting was classic. An old church renovated into a restaurant was a novel idea that helped to save the building. A definite place...More
