I have been to On The Veranda multiple times over the past five years. It has always been a delightful and delicious experience. Not only is the food delicious and very well presented, it has a varied menu from local trout to steaks. I had fresh,wild bass from SC on Saturday night. My friends had lobster, fresh trout, fresh shrimp, and steak so the menu was well covered. All offerings were deliciously prepared.
They have an extensive wine list as well as an extensive cocktail and aperitif offerings. A pianist played quietly and pleasantly in the bar. We reserved a table with a full lake view.
The service is excellent and when we asked for some "individualized" preparations they were very accommodating. It is not inexpensive but is worth the quality of food and service...plus you can have a beautiful view.

We had a most wonderful anniversary at On the Veranda. The food and the service were fantastic. Our server Billy really made the night special. The table over looked the lake and was spectacular. Highly recommended

We have been going to Highlands for eighteen years. One of our favorite places to have dinner is On the Veranda. We enjoy the water view and good service and food. Great location.

I have been dining on the Verandah for 25 years. A wonderful wine selection and a chef that knows how to please your sense of taste. The menu has a variety that will find most people satisfied. When I am in highlands alone, I dine at the bar. The bartender knows how to treat customers and recommend wines. You will never be displeased!

We loved this restaurant, on the water. Even though there was no electricity, but to an electrical storm, they cooked and served us by candlelight, which made it even more enjoyable. Loved it.
