My husband treated me to a very special Sunday brunch at this beautiful lakeside restaurant. We had reserved a seat on the veranda earlier in the week and were delighted to find out how lovely the view was. A hummingbird feeder was located right next to the table and it was fun to watch the birds feeding as we ate.... More

While Madisons was a touch more elegant in atmosphere and service. The food and value here well make up for it. We went for Sunday brunch. It was a gorgeous day and we sat outside with a spectacular view. Brunch comes with mimosa or kir royale, soup, salad bar and entrée. Every single item of food was delish! My husband... More

This was our 1st time at this establishment. Our party of 6 arrived Sunday at 11 am. There were only 2 cars in the lot. Upon entering the restaurant, there were 3-4 tables occupied. You can sit inside or outside on the deck. We chose inside. It did fill up around 11:45 am. The Sunday Brunch is $26 which includes... More

This is our favorite neighborhood restaurant and by far has exceeded our expectations. Janelle, staff, and of course the chef-are outstanding. We are thrilled with the consistency over the last year we have dined here, and find the menu and wine list full of diversity each visit. What a treat to have such 5 star dining and a friendly knowledgeable... More

We have dined here many times through the years, but had never been to their Sunday brunch. Not knowing if we would need reservations, we telephoned and received a recording asking us to leave our name and number, and they would return our call. We did this, but never heard from them. On Sunday, we were able to be seated... More

We vacation annually in the Highlands and always visit this restuarant as the food is always excellent, the service is excellent and the prices are reasonable. They always have a nice menu selection. We really enjoy the NC trout dishes but their evening specials are also wonderful. The wine selections should match your taste as well. If you are lucky... More

My husband has been coming here for dinner since 1985. He has eaten here at least 20 times - I have been here at least 10 times previous to this last visit. Since we have had such wonderful meals here, we brought my brother and sister-in-law for a "thank you" dinner. We were so disappointed in our meal - frankly,... More

Had the opportunity to dine at OTV on Thursday evening. Enjoyed Lexi's fabulous cocktails and Andrew's mouthwatering braised short ribs and seared tuna. You have to stop by and enjoy a meal with them. And the view overlooking the lake is icing on the cake.

I have been frequenting the Verandah for many years now and their Sunday brunch is one of my favorites in the area! I brought some close friends who were visiting and they quickly became fan favorites of their Bloody Mary Bar and amazing variety offered on the salad bar! great location, friendly staff, amazing food, & wonderful cocktail selections!!

We ate On The Verandah for Mother's Day brunch outside Highlands. Our three different meal choices were prepared with perfection and were delicious. The restaurant offers a Sunday brunch menu with approximately 5-7 entree items. For $27/person you get get a choice of soup, entree and salad bar. Note that this is not your run of the mill type salad... More
