One thing you can truly rely upon is the quality of the seafood at Terrapin! We started with calamari, potato chips, beef dumplings and tempura shiitake to start followed by soft shell crabs for three of us and one halibut! Such light batter on the...More

Terrapin is regarded as one of the best options in the restaurant-thin North End of Virginia Beach. The prices are high for food and drinks, but the consistency of what you get makes it mostly worth it. You are never taking a risk to pick...More

This restaurant has a nice contemporary feel to it. Fresh oysters, a rockfish catch of the day, these are the kinds of items you'll find here. You can eat a la carte, or do a prix fixe arrangement of four dishes. Interestingly, they do not...More

The first thing the waiter asked was "have you been here before?" I said "no". The waiter took that as his queue to say, "this is a fine dining restaurant". That set the tone. I've eaten at 5-star restaurants more times than I can count,...More

Terrapin is such an amazing restaurant, I have been twice already but just for dinner and both times the service was consistent and the food amazing. My only complaint is that the food comes out very quickly and so the meal is done pretty quickly.

Terrapin is hands down my favorite restaurant in Virginia Beach. It's where I love to go for special events, random dinner, date nights, birthdays, and Restaurant Week (of course!). The menu changes due to available ingredients so it's not always quite the same. I love...More

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.
