First time on Amelia Island. Greeted w/gracious Southern hospitality...by name. Tina and assistant provided recommendations as we reviewed the menu. The fragrance of the fresh hot bread & corn meal muffins awakened our senses. Veranda Sampler(shared) was a preview of things to come, must try the fried green tomatoes. Shrimp & Grits & Salmon entrees were exquisitely prepared and presented.... More

When you walk into the Verandah, you can truly appreciate all of the effort Omni has put into renovation of the restaurant. It had become old and dated and needed an update. The bar area when you walk in is really attractive, but I was kind of surprised that the TV was off with the US playing in the World... More

I agree largely with the other reviews. The wait staff was pretty good-- but not great and the food was also "pretty good" but not great. For the price tag, they need a better menu and snappier ambience. There are better restaurants at this hotel, but also in the area. My daughter had the seafood pasta, and I'd say that... More

Great menu selections. The staff was amazingly friendly, which is why I gave it four stars. It's worth gong in just to experience the wonderful staff. They make you want o go back. Food was good and tasty.

I recently ate at the Verandah while staying at the Omni over Memorial Day weekend. (I recommend reservations- We made ours for 2 when we made our hotel reservations). The hostess was friendly and we were seated as soon as we arrived. Our waiter was attentive throughout the night and even helped us decide between two dinner choices (he recommended... More

We recently ate at the Verandah and while we would probably return it did not quite meet our expectations. For someone who is not a guest of the hotel finding where to park was a bit of a challenge and we did not see any valet available. We had asked for a quiet romantic table since we were celebrating an... More

If you're looking for fresh seafood this is a great place! We had the grouper, shrimp, raw oysters, & all were fabulous! I agree that the ambiance is a little flat at night but the food & service trump that! This is a fun place for couples & families.

this was always a local's favorite, until they totally revamped the menu and removed all the best selections: The Verandah Salad, Fernandina shrimp, and the meat loaf just to mention a few
