This place seems to have it all. The food is outstanding and the drink prices are too cheap to believe. I had the lasagna, which might be the best I have ever had. My friend had the mixed seafood plate which I sampled the gumbo...it was

This is a place that doesn't allow cussing and has great food. The service is down-home Texas style. The decor and atmosphere is "pop culture meets old school". The food is home cooking at it's best. They offer a variety of dishes. A

I think I just had the best meal I have ever had!!! The lasagna was unbelievable!!!! The service, ....not so much!!! But they tell you on the menu that they are understaffed and family owned..... Good Food and Texas sized portions. Supposedly, almost everything is made from scratch. The owner himself waited on us. I can't remember the last time I dined out and actually met the owner. It was old school family charm at it's best.... They are really more like a family tavern....sort of like "Cheers" on steroids.... It was a good time and good food.....

I kept hearing how good the food was at The Terrace Cafe and then I decided to go there. I looked all over the place for it, ....duh! It was upstairs.....then we get inside and it looks like a dive.....pool tables...video games...dingy carpet..... ok....it is another adventure...then the food came out and OMG!!! Awsome!!! Fantastic!!! It really is the Best spaghetti!!! Can't judge a book by it's cover!!! Good food, ...Large portions....Friendly Atmosphere....we met the owner and , well, ....he really is passionate about what he does..... They don't make them like this anymore!!! Eat on the patio....the inside is a little boring, but the patio is awesome!!! Oh! DON'T Cuss....it is forbidden at The Terrace Cafe. They will warn you, but we actually saw someone get asked to leave for too much profanity. Not a bad idea,..if you think about it! WOW! Class in today's world ....what a concept!!!

I went to this place a few times over the years, both with friends and solo.

I'm really surprised by that one star reviewer Lovely13 as I have never experienced what she (he???) experienced in terms of the owner being a 'sleeze'.

Perhaps you were being ugly and needed to be thrown out???

My personal experience with the owner was that he was friendly and professional.

Think about this... seriously... how could someone who throws a client out for cussing also at the same time be sleezy? I know I cussed a few times and didn't get thrown out... you really must have done something worth while to get booted out. I know I didn't cuss like a sailor and my intention wasn't to be ugly at all, so perhaps you were just being ugly. Who wants to be near anyone that is drinking so heavily that they make other patrons feel uncomfortable??? I know I don't. The owner did good to get rid of you, imho!

This just doesn't make any sense and is so incongruous a review! C'mon. Think about it!

Sounds to me and I believe I also speak for other intelligent thinking folks out there, that this really sounds like sour grapes on the part of the person who was misbehaving and leaving this review...

I personally enjoy a place that I can meet my buddies, let my hair down, laugh out loud and just have a good time which this place allows me to do so.

This place really reminds me of that TV show "Cheers"- where everyone is treated like a friend by owner and bartender alike.

And you know what? I personally enjoy the friendly attention and banter that the owner and his staff shows. Creepy? Really? Dudette, maybe you should look in the mirror and see the definition of sleeze.

Oy vay lady. Cut me a break and make some sense for crying out loud.

I am a huge football fan. It is almost impossible to find a nice place to relax and watch a game anywhere in the Kemah area. I basically stumbled upon this place last year during football season and thought it was great. As football season is approaching this year, I thought I would check to make sure it was still there. Glad to see it is. Relaxing, nice crowd, yada, yada, yada.

I like the food, bartenders make the place. The owner on the other hand, wants a family place yet his way with his bartender and female customers is just horrible. He is a sleezy man. So if you go out there avoid the owner and dont cuss he will throw you out but its ok just not around the bar. But the bartenders are the best place about it. They will really get to know you and have fun with you.

Pros: Bartenders very friendly and quick

Cons: Owner very strict and hits on every woman there

I just went to this quirky little joint for the first time, even though I've lived near it for years. It is relatively small, but has a large terrace, and the smaller nature of the place makes it a little more cozy, in my opinion. My friend and I sat down at the bar and seemed to immediately become buddies with the bartender (who definitely wasn't hard on the eyes and had a wonderful sense of humor) and another patron. For a Saturday night, it was quite slow and only a couple of groups came in, but to me that was a refreshing change from the large, crowded meat markets.

I personally love the fact that they don't allow inappropriate language. The owner told me they do that to keep the people out who tend to get drunk and belligerent. And that it did. The owner and the bartender also seem to befriend everyone who walks in, learning their names, asking where they're from and making them feel welcome in general. Oh, and just as a note, the bartender DID check our IDs, even though we're both old ladies (33 and 41)...which was actually pretty flattering.

The drinks weren't too expensive and they had a good selection behind the bar. They also apparently have the best spaghetti in town, although I didn't try it. I did have some cheesecake, though, and a bite of a pierogi, and it was really good stuff!

If you want a quiet place in Kemah/Clear Lake to have a drink, eat some good food and make instant friends, The Terrace Cafe is the place to go.

My friends and I went to the Terrace Cafe last week. The patio is real nice, I also liked being able to take my dog. We all ate cheeseburgers and they were excellent and so was the cold beer. I thought the bartender was funny. We are going back in June to try the big New Orleans sandwich ( I forget what it is called)!

Pros: something different, drinks pretty cheap, dining inside and out

Cons: upstairs - a little hard to find, but nice view

We visited this bar on a spring break Saturday night. Surprisingly it was not at all busy. They have a great balcony which we enjoyed a drink on. Indoors leaves something to be desired - almost sports bar like. Unfortunately nothing separated this bar from all the others Kemah which also lack sophistication.
