The service I received here was possibly the worst service I've ever had to experience in my life at a restaurant. Looking at the menu and reading the exquisite foods that were offered only to fall short after I watched several people walk in after me only to get served before I did. I figured it was because they had... More

We stopped by for dinner based on other reviews and proximity to our hotel, and the Greek items on the menu. I should have trusted my instinct to avoid a restaurant with in a gas station strip mall. However, the restaurant was fairly full, and most people seemed to be enjoying a pleasant dining experience. I had intended to order... More

This restaurant was recommended by the front desk staff at our hotel. I did look at Trip Advisor for reviews of the restaurant and we decided to give it a try. Before you were able to enter the restaurant a local patron stopped us at the door and said it was one of the best places to eat in the... More

If you miss the tastes of home come here. All the Greek and American in a small place. Has a great deck to enjoy the outside while you dine.

When we arrived at our hotel we needed dinner but we were too tired to go out. This place promptly brought our hot food including utensils and napkins for a reasonable delivery charge. Mussels were large with a spiced sauce, eggplant, and salad were very good. A very gracious woman made the delivery to our hotel room door. Bravo.

We registered at the Hampton Inn Roanoke and at the reception desk was a printout of "Good Places to Eat" in the area. We had already researched restaurant possibilities in the area. John and Josh at the front desk recommended the Veranda Bistro, a Greek restaurant not too far from the hotel. Directions were on the printout. We like to... More

Everything was perfect. From the service to the food to the atmosphere. What an amazing family owned restaurant. Our waitress Vacelia is awesome. This place gives you that warm and fuzzy feel. If you ever go you have to try the Greek spinach puffs, a little piece of heaven. Also the cheesecake. Best cheesecake I've ever had and I LOVE... More
