Had dinner at the Swan Terrace which is showing signs of decline. The food was just ok and definitely not worth the price. There are much better restaurants but they are not very close to the on site hotel, Founders Inn.

I was there in the middle of the week and I came in about 15 minutes before it was supposed to close. The food was good, the chefs were extremely helpful and wanted to make sure my food was warm and fresh enough. The servers was extremely helpful and double checked for me if I had breakfast included with my... More

I stay at the Founders Inn every time that I am in Virginia Beach and I love the Hunt Room for casual dining and the Swan Terrace for a more formal dining experience. The staff is pleasant and genuinely enjoy what they do.

The breakfast buffet at the Swan Terrace is the perfect way to start off your time in Virginia Beach. They offer everything from fresh fruit to fresh omelets and leave a pot of really good coffee on your table for you. Definitely going back. :)

The staff was great and treated my children so well! They loved to go each morning. The made to order items are fantastic. It has a nice variety of food. The table setting is beautiful, and so is the restaurant. It is worth the price!

We dined on a Saturday night at 6:30. The restaurant is very clean, the wait staff was excellent, and the food was delicious. I had the filet mignon and it was melt in my mouth. My husband started with the pungo salad and had the delmonico with a bourbon glaze for his main course, which of course I sampled. Delicious... More

I guest the SWAN is suppose to be the classy restaurant of the hotel, we have not been there on week-end but on week days (5 days) its seems to be only buffet. The buffet are very good, but it is not a restaurant to get your spouse on a romantic night. We certainly went elsewhere for that.
