The Kindos family restaurant, The Terrace, is nestled between Panama City Beach and Rosemary Beach off Highway 98 in the small town of Inlet Beach. Family owned and operated since 1990, Thomas and Katherine Kindos created a menu combining their rich Greek heritage with the local, fresh flavors of the Emerald Coast for a truly memorable dining experience.

“We grew up in a Mediterranean atmosphere and I was trained in the French manner,” said Chef Thomas. “Our restaurant is like a small European Inn, with a relaxed atmosphere, great service and the food is spectacular.”

Thomas, with more than 30-years of experience as a Chef, has the restaurant business in his blood — his grandfather owned and operated a restaurant in New York circa 1929. He told The Sun that their restaurant, now in its 24th year, has quickly gained a reputation as being one of the top restaurants in the Panama City Beach area.

“We use only the finest ingredients for our entrees and are prepared to order,” Thomas said. “Featuring fresh seafood, beef, lamb, pork and chicken, our dishes are carefully prepared and presented by a creative, friendly and experienced staff. Combined with a relaxed, intimate, cozy atmosphere — The Terrace will have you coming back for more.”

Start your evening with Lollipop Lamb Chops, finished with a red wine shallot sauce, or Spanakopita, a Greek pie made of feta cheese and fresh herbs rolled in filo pastry. For an entrée, order the restaurant’s signature dish: Delicious Grouper Gourmet, pan-seared Grouper finished in a Chardonnay sauce of artichokes, wild mushrooms and fresh basil, or try the ever-indulgent Filet Mignon, “so tender you can cut it with your fork,” served with crispy fried oysters, wild mushrooms, and a Cabernet Sauvignon sauce. And last but not least, treat yourself to the Coconut Cake — moist white cake layered with a light fluffy coconut frosting.

“Our restaurant has not changed since we opened in 1990 — we are still serving wonderful food and great service to our patrons,” Thomas said. “We are older, but much wiser.”

The Terrace restaurant is located at 13741 E Emerald Coast Pkwy in Inlet Beach . For more information, visit their website www.terracer.com or call 231-5202. Reservations are recommended.
