Swan Terrace Restaurant – Dining at the Founders Inn in Virginia Beach, VA
Swan Terrace Restaurant is located inside the Founders Inn and Spa in Virginia Beach. During our stay at Founders, we tried out the breakfast buffet on 2 mornings. They also offer a lunch buffet, dinner menu, and weekend brunch. Various events are held throughout the year. The breakfast buffet can also be combined with a room for a special rate.
The breakfast buffet was a bit disappointing as it seemed to be more of an expanded continental breakfast. Choices on the buffet line included juices, fruit, oatmeal, toast, cereals, and a few hot entrees such as scrambled eggs, pancakes, meats, and potatoes. I have seen the majority of these items at a typical hotel continental breakfast. That being said, the food was decent enough to warrant a visit.
Besides the made-to-order omelets, there was not much of a difference. And at a hefty $14 per person price, I just don’t think it was worth the cost. I expected much more variety! Update: As of 2022, the buffet price has jumped up to $17 per person. The highlight of dining at Swan Terrace is in the service department – both waiters were very professional, cheerful, and prompt.
One of this benefits of enjoying breakfast at Swan Terrace is that it is located right onsite of the Founders Inn, therefore, taking out the hassle of driving stress and deciding where to eat. On another plus side, the dining room is set in a nice elegant room with beautiful chandeliers and fireplaces. The beautiful ambiance is definitely a big plus.
We had a window seat with beautiful views of the garden. I would not go out of your way to dine at this restaurant. However, if already staying at Founders Inn and Spa, you should stop at Swan Terrace for the great service and atmosphere.
