This is a restaurant worthy of a special occasion. As one reviewer critically pointed out, it is a historical restaurant. If you are looking for a trendy place, this isn't it! The waiters are attentive and professional. White tablecloths, tuxedo-d waiters and excellent food. The fish is always fresh. Ask for a table in the bar, if that's your preference... More

The Veranda restaurant in Ft. Myers has only been there since 1978 but it is very much a charming historical restaurant that reminds you of the times when dining out was meant to be an experience. I believe that the same family has been running the restaurant since the beginning. The food is southern regional cuisine and is excellent without... More

Marty! This place is terrible! Soooo tired... Like the servers, this place is stuck in 1985... Is that when it opened??? Whole experience was just OLD. Seriously diners in Detroit have more interesting menus. I'm not a cocktail drinker but I'd bet a million dollars they still spear cherries with neon swords in this rickety old shack. Guys step up...

We have been here several times over the years and as always the entire experience was very good. Our meals were all completed as ordered, served hot and promptly with no rushing between courses. The wait staff were very well trained and efficient. Our waiter, Jacque, was wonderful and he has waited on us before. They always seem to feature... More

In downtown Fort Myers, there is the most lovely place. It is a joy to look at inside and in its garden serving area. We did it up nice and had the Chateaubriand, and it was absolutely delicious. Next will be a lunchtime visit! And soon!

My friend and I had exchanged birthday and Christmas gifts for many years. Finally, we made a smart decision to forego gift buying and celebrate our combined birthdays and Christmas holiday by treating ourselves to an evening in a wonderful restaurant. This is the second year celebrating at The Verandah. I had Tripletail (my favorite Florida fish) and my friend... More

We received a gift certificate as a Christmas Gift, Had a wonderful experience, probably not for everyone we enjoyed the special service and the food was wonderful if a bit pricy.

We visited The Veranda for an early Dinner 5:30 pm. We were two ladies they quickly whisked us to a table all the way in the back corner of the restaurant. When my friend asked if we could possibly not sit in these seats, we were told how people ask for this spot. My friend said never mind. We ordered... More

We went to this restaurant because we were told it is a great old establishment which represented maybe the best Fort Myers had to offer. We walked in the main lobby bar area where there was a piano player playing and the musty sickly smell in the place should have made us turn around and leave. We got seated and... More
