With a stupendous 90.92 Rating Score™ and an average star rating of 4.59 on verified review sites, Terrapin Restaurant is one of the top 10 restaurants in the entire state of Virginia for 2019. Our team spoke with managing partner, Brian Williams, about his business’ online reputation and tracked down just a couple of reviews that we believe truly exemplify what makes Terrapin Restaurant such a hit.

A Unique Dining Experience

“What a phenomenal experience! Everyone made it such a unique experience. It was our 16 year wedding anniversary and they even put it on the menu! They brought out a complimentary [glass] of champagne. All were attentive to every detail. The food served was of the utmost quality and flavor [like we’ve] never before tasted! The fact that all [of the ingredients were] local made it that much more appreciated — giving back to and supporting the farmers and people that make this country great! I will dine here again for upcoming special occasions. The rack of lamb was beyond expectation!”

Speaking with Brian, it was quickly apparent to us how much passion he and his team have for the hospitality business. They take immense pride in showing their customers what dining can and should be. The team at Terrapin believes in treating their customers with the utmost care, consistently going above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that each and every guest has a wonderful time during their visit.

Unparalleled Cuisine

“We enjoyed Terrapin. Everything was on point — the food, the service, and the ambiance. The beet salad was both beautiful in its presentation and delicious. My husband’s strip looked good and he looked happy. The arugula salad was fresh and delicious, a nice complement to the pork belly ravioli which was light and tasty…”

No matter the level of service, no restaurant is truly great without excellent food. Luckily, Terrapin offers phenomenal cuisine, offering both dinner a la carte and a luxurious four-course tasting menu. The talented team of chefs at Terrapin utilizes local and organic ingredients as often as they possibly can and strive to create dishes that are simply incomparable to the other options in the area. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or just in a “treat yourself” kind of mood, you’re sure to enjoy a wonderful meal at Terrapin Restaurant.


Thank you for speaking with us, Brian. Congratulations to the team at Terrapin Restaurant for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner!
