“Great restaurant!”
Reviewed August 21, 2014

The food and the view at this restaurant are both excellent. My husband and I shared the cheese plate, filet mignon, lobster tacos and tomato bisque soup. They all tasted amazing! In addition, the bar manager was very friendly and gave very good wine suggestions to go along with our meal. I loved the whole atmosphere and the piano player was a very nice touch.

“Amazing Food, Amazing Location”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

We visited while vacationing in the area. Great view of the lake, with a very charming inside as well. The menu had a variety of options. We had the Lobster Tacos, Cheese Plate, New York Strip and Dessert, all of which were creative in their presentation and delicious. Great wine list as well. The Bar manager was exceptional with her wine suggestions.

“good service”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

We enjoyed the dinner for my husband's birthday. The appetizers were delicious: Lamb, tomato basil soup and lobster tail, and the grouper was really really good too. The Scallops on Angel Hair pasta was a little to heavy on the sauce, overpowering the flavors. The food came out very hot and just from the kitchen, liked that! The pie and chocolate mousse cake was outstanding! We'd go there again, but ask a few more questions on the preparation and not just go with all the waiters opinions. The service was outstanding. Our water glasses and bread on the table were always attended to by a sweet young woman just making sure that the guests were taken care of between courses. We had a view of the river thru the screen porch and hummingbirds at the feeder were nice.

“An Exceptional Evening”
Reviewed August 16, 2014

We selected The Veranda for our 44th anniversary dinner. The setting next to the water was exceptional. We were greeted by Suzanne who made us fell like we were at home. Our server
Janelle knew the menu well and, after a short conversation about our likes, made excellent meal
Recommendations. Service throughout the meal was timely and responsive. The food itself was exceptional. The combination of different favors was pleasing to the pallet. The evening was a wonderful experience and we will definitely return to On The Veranda in the future.
