Our History

Welcome to our Terrace! I’m delighted you decided to join us today.

You know, when I was a boy of twelve, I started my own business mowing lawns. My dad, “Cotton” Penick, was a no-nonsense plant manager who believed in two things: hard work and church. I spent most of my waking hours earning a living—from growing Christmas trees and operating a flower/vegetable mail order seed business to founding and running my own agricultural chemical export company for 32 years. Since meal time was my only chance to relax, I’ve always associated good food with pleasure and “down time.” I loved the Southern cuisine I grew up on—biscuits and gravy, waffles with plenty of syrup, green beans with ham hocks and fried chicken with mashed potatoes and sausage gravy. And holidays meant surrounding ourselves with family and friends—and endless servings of
mouthwatering dishes.

The Terrace Experience

The overall Terrace experience begins as soon as you walk through our doors. As you navigate through our lovely restaurant, you’ll notice cozy decor filled with rich woods, earth tones and custom paintings and artwork. The impeccable attention to detail shows in our selection of unusually-shaped dishes, curved glasses and dinnerware and unique touches placed throughout the restaurant. We aim to create an ambiance of warmth and relaxation in a casual, yet classy, environment for everything from catching up with friends and family to romantic evenings out.

Our Team

Our team is hand-picked to enhance your experience at Terrace by providing warm, quality service with a smile. Our hostesses, waiters and waitresses, chefs, bartenders and management are happy to offer recommendations and assistance. Our goal is to create the perfect dining experience for each of our guests.

Giving Back

Although our main goal at Terrace is to provide excellent food and service to our customers, giving back to our local community is also very important to us.

We support the Susan G. Komen Foundation and give back to local area charities in the neighborhoods we serve. Some of those charities include the Big South 5K, local community schools, the annual Jewish Film Festival and the HeartBright Foundation.
