Virginia Beach: Swan Terrace Grille (Founder’s Inn)

Chef from Founders retouch

It seems that everyone in the Tidewater Area of Virginia seems to know about the Founder’s Inn.  Now whether they have been or not is irrevelant. Located at Regent University which is also the headquarters for CBN(Christian Broadcasting Network). Now that we have talked about “location, location, location’, let’s talk food.  I was invited to dine with my mother while visiting Virginia.  She wanted the buffet but I am more of Dinner at Swan Terracean order straight from the menu gal.  I think Chef’s get to show off more.  The menu was pretty safe s but it made some interesting twists like cheesy chipotle grits and sweet potato soup.  I was also impressed with the cabbage mixed with kernels of corn.   However, I did glance at the menu and it was definitely more exciting including  of roasting pig for eight at $250.  That comes with sides.  Also there is a fairly priced afternoon tea on Saturday.

Bottom line, Swan Terrace has something for everyone.  The service is outstanding to level which is hard to find at a reasonably priced restaurant.
