I went with a group of 5 to On the Veranda in Highlands NC. We had reservations and were seated promptly. Great atmosphere and lovely mountain décor. The service was excellent and the chief even visited the table to go over specials. The drinks were gracious and the whole place had a comfortable feel. The lamb and steaks were excellent - I chose the snapper and was not delighted - not as much flavor as I had anticipated. All the sides were wonderful and the group had a fine time. The entertainer added to the special evening and the entire party had a memorable time. hold you breath when you get the bill - as everything in The Highlands it was quite expensive. I would definitely return - next time when it is still light so that we could enjoy the view.
