My husband and I were very pleased with a romantic dinner and night out at "On the Veranda". The food was delicious - fresh and prepared to enhance the flavors of both steak and seafood - and the ambience was divine. A romantic dinner on the screened-in veranda was the perfect place to view nature at it's best in the Highlands. To cap everything off, our excellent server, Billy, made our experience that much more pleasant! We highly recommend
going there!

There were 4 of us that dined here on Wednesday evening, July 3rd, 2013.Our server, Gregory, took excellent care of us. He explained the menu very well and made suggestions when asked. Most of us had their NY Strip steak with peppercorns. Each one was prepared to perfection.
It had been several years since dining there and did not recall the menu from days gone by, but the menu of today is superb.
Try it...you'll like it. Be sure to ask for Gregory too.

My husband and I were enjoying a day in the beautiful small town of Highlands, NC. We share our love of the area with friends that highly recommended "On the Veranda." We made a reservation and made a special request to sit on the actual Veranda, overlooking a beautiful river. We arrived a bit early and waited in the bar area where we enjoyed an enjoyable discussion about the area with a friendly and knowledgeable bartender, and then seated by a lovely m'aitre dame. Our server was also friendly and extremely well acquainted with the menu; even the specials for the evening! There was an extensive wine list from which to choose a perfect accompaniment for our meal. When our food arrived, it was well portioned, creatively plated, well seasoned, and, best of all, delicious! If you ever have the opportunity to visit the Highlands area, please make it a priority to dine at this very fine establishment. My husband and I now have a new "Special Occasion" favorite!
