We chose this restaurant after seeing an article in the paper about local bluegrass music that night. Although there were no available reservations, the kind hostess broke up a large table and made room for us. It was a fun atmosphere. Good food, but not stuffy or formal. Many of the diners were wearing jeans or shorts. That night, a... More

The Sunday Brunch at On the Verandah is always the best way to start a week in Highlands. The meal was wonderful, the view can't be beat and our server Bob always knows what is best! We have eaten at On the Verandah many times over the years and it's always Great!

When it was recommended i inquired about the level of horseradish on the fish as it could certainly overpower the mild halibut, I was assured that it was perfect. Well, what... More

I took my wife to this restaurant that overlooks a lake. They accept reservations which are highly recommended. We like reisling wine and unfortunately they only carry one which is awful! Our server and I won't mention his name because I don't want to get him in trouble was not as good as some of the others there. We had... More

Our favorite dinner restaurant. We ate outside as the weather was great . The view of the lake just made the meal even better. The food was outstanding. Return again in November.
