My wife and I met another couple at the Veranda for lunch last week. They recommended the Veranda to us on several occasions, but being from Naples, its a bit of a hike!

We were a groups of 10 ladies. Our waitress's , Vanessa, was excellent and handled our group well. My lunch was delicious, fresh salmon - Vanessa recommended it. She even got me extra sauce as I thought it needed it. I will be back! I have been for dinner a few times, never lunch.

This was our first experience at the Veranda. We were not disappointed as the ambiance and the menu were very good. Our waiter, Michael, was excellent, not intrusive, but always attentive and informative. My wife had the salmon and I had the Pompano, both of which were excellent. The wine list was good, and Michael's recommendations suited our tastes nicely.... More

I've always loved eating here. Was running late for lunch so stopped in for the lite fare which is advertised 2 to 4 p.m. entering the courtyard. I was arrogantly fluffed off by two grim faced staff. They were setting up for a function. Fine but at least be polite and accommodating . Maître D is a sour puss. Other... More

When we got married in March 1994, we went to The Veranda after the wedding. We had a wonderful evening. We have been there for several anniversaries since then but it had been awhile since celebrating there. This year we wanted to celebrate there again.

Our waiter, Michael, made a family dinner at the Veranda even more enjoyable. This has become a yearly pilgrimage from Michigan. Southern charm in a beautiful setting!
