Purveyor Spotlight: Cromwell's Produce

The Cromwell’s family heritage dates back to the early 1900’s when John Giles Cromwell farmed the land around Wards Corner in Norfolk, VA. John & Betsy Cromwell have been carrying on the family tradition since 1983 on their 167 acre Virginia Beach farm. For almost a decade, the Cromwell’s have supplied Chef Rodney with a wide range of locally grown produce. Depending on the time of the year, our menu might feature their butter beans, zucchini, corn, tomatoes, baby beets, butternut squash and sweet potatoes.

We are always looking for energetic people who have a passion for food and the restaurant business. 



Since opening, in April of 2006, Terrapin has been the standard bearer for fine dining in Virginia Beach. Over the course of the last 13 years, although Terrapin has evolved slightly with changing tastes and trends, the menu and the design of the restaurant  remained remarkably consistent.


In March of this year Terrapin closed for a week to re-invent itself. We re-modeled the interior, revamped the kitchen with the Josper oven and Dolly III pasta extruder and completely re-worked our dinner menu


Our remodeling included a re-design of the bar display, a new color scheme for the restaurant and all new artwork which pays homage to the inspiration for the name Terrapin. The remodeling  bring changes to everything from the floor to the ceiling giving Terrapin an exciting and fresh new look.



One of only a handful on the Eastern Seaboard, The Josper Oven is a charcoal burning enclosed grill with generous capacity that will allow larger, shareble dishes, such as whole chickens, and bone-in ribeyes for two.  In addition, the Josper can also be used to roast and grill vegetables allowing the natural wood charcoal to add an extra depth of flavor.


We are proud to offer Vero Bottled Water to our guests. Using the latest in purification technology, the Vero Water system bottles our still and sparkling water in-house resulting in a nearly zero carbon footprint. And, it tastes great!
