Dined at the new restaurant in this location "Up the Stairs" Loosely related to Up The Creek. The focus is on a fine dining experience; Taking local seafood to the next level! Geared towards 21 and over, this is a cozy, new atmosphere for Apalach. You will not be disappointed!

Closed. Verandas has halted all operations at this location. Another venue will open soon, hopefully. Keep your eyes open.

We really enjoy our visits to Verandas, whether for lunch, dinner or a nice glass of wine during the afternoon. The food is always fresh and delicious, and the service impeccable. The wait staff is genuinely pleasant and they are very knowledgeable about the wonderful beer and wine selections that they offer. We visit this area about once a month... More

The atmosphere on the veranda, above the Apalachicola hustle and bustle, transforms you into the old coastal Florida lifestyle. Social, special, memorable are words to describe a casual meal or a family banquet, out on the veranda or in the beautifully designed Dining room.

This was our 2nd visit to the Verandas Bistro, once for lunch on a wet afternoon earlier in the summer. That day was a party of 4 and we all had good food and great service. The sweet potato fries are the best I have had. We live about 50 miles from Apalachicola and have eaten in several locations there.... More

I had dinner at The Verandas in Apalachicola last night and was amazed by the service, food, and atmosphere and can't wait to eat there again. We were greeted right away by a very pleasant, sweet smiling young hostess who made us feel right at home. The restaurant is upstairs of an historic building right off the main street in... More

Stopped in for lunch, no one in the place, which should have raised a flag. I ordered a bowl of soup, hubby ordered a burger. His burger was good , but they brought me a very shallow bowl of soup. I had to ask for crackers or bread. They brought out 4 crackers on a plate. The crackers were not... More

Thank you for dining with us at Verandas. I remember you very well; both you and hubby enjoyed your meals and ate every bite. To clarify to other guests the Lobster Bisque is served in New World China, a large but "shallow" bowl. Food network and cookbooks claim 6-8 oz = cup; 10-12 oz = bowl. New World China is... More

My brother gave us a gift certificate since my husband loves wine. Great selection of wine. Both of us had the Grouper fish special which was very good. The service was spectacular. We had a window view of town.

Four of us (two couples) all chose the same dish (Grilled Cobia) with the sauce on the side. It was absolutely delicious! We also chose Cunundrum wine (2 red & 2 white). Wine was fantastic. Top off that wonderful food and wine with efficient personable service and we had a delightful evening with great friends.
