It was a special occasion shared with friends and we were not disappointed. The menu is interesting and varied and the food very good. We were as always at this venue able to find a particularly good wine. The atmosphere is wonderful with just the right sound level and lighting and the service very attentive.

This is a very interesting restaurant. We had passed by it several times and didn't realize it was a restaurant when we moved to the Ft. Myers area. Wow, were we delighted, if you love Shrimp n Grits, this is the place for you, what a surprise. The lunch crowd can create a loud environment, if it's cool outside, sit... More

We frequent this restaurant and have never had a disappointing experience. They have a great menu for food that is prepared perfectly and their wine list has a very nice selection of some very good wines. We recommend that you request Peter as your server when you go, his service is impeccable.

Everything on the menu is delicious and the wine selection is extensive. Wonderful place to celebrate a special occasion. Food is a bit pricey but you won't have to deal with a bunch of small children disturbing your peace.

Celebrating that special event. Well then, pick a very special place. Birthday, anniversary, even "just because" The Veranda is the place to go. Pricey, yes, but well worth it. The wait staff is dress to the nines. The atmosphere awesome and the food delicious. Worth saving up for. And if you are a visitor to Ft. Myers, check it out.

Thank syb909
