Food and service were very
Food and service were very good. We were initially seated at a table near a larger table with several young children who were fussing and crying loudly. When we asked to be moved they promptly found us another table. After that hiccup everything went smoothly. The grilled fish was fresh and tasty, as we're the sides. The service was first rate.

Fantastic Food, and SERVICE!
This meal may have been the highlight of our vacation at the Omni! Samuel is the best waiter we've had in years. He truly loves his job and that shows in his attention to detail. Very impressive! Now for the food, the surf and turf includes a Crabcake that was 97% crab (according to Samuel)... Maybe more. And the filtet could be cut with a knife. PERFECTION!
My wife had the Grouper topped with the Crabcake. It melted in you mouth.
Make Verandah reservations on day 1 so you will have time to visit again.

Excellent seafood experience
Excellent presentation of local seafood - BBQ shrimp to Crab encrusted grouper. We received five star service by our server, Tina who guided us through our menu choices of food and wine. Still talking about how good the grouper was and we are from the Gulf coast used to great, fresh seafood.

Great meal with family. Lotta sharing went on between us. Shrimp and grits were the highlight of the meal... different preparation with country ham which I really like. Seafood carbonara was great. Oyster chowder was great. Bread was delicious. Appetizer sampler was great with crab cakes, Barbequed shrimp and fried green tomatoes. Just regret we didn't leave room for dessert because the menu sounded great.

It's just right
Have you ever found a restaurant that is just right for where it is and what it does? The Veranda is one of those. The staff is attentive; the menu has a good variety of choices; the food is prepared correctly; and the presentation is impressive. We enjoyed our visit and will return.

Great food, excellent service
Read a couple of negative reviews about the service, so I was a little wary. We went ahead anyway and were just blown away. The food was outstanding and the service among the best we've had anywhere. What a terrific place!

My wife and I had a wonderful
My wife and I had a wonderful meal at the Veranda Restaurant. The service we received from our waiter Nick F. was top notch. My favorite meal by far while on vacation on Amelia Island. Food was delicious and the ambiance was nice.

thoroughly enjoyed the food
We had the appetizer with shrimp, crab cakes, and fried green tomatos. Oh my goodness the crab cakes were outstanding. Lump crab meat with almost no filler. They were some of the best I've ever had and I'm originally from Louisiana. The signature grouper with crab crust was pure heaven. We loved our meal. I would definitely go back.

We celebrated our one year
We celebrated our one year wedding anniversary at the Omni Resort and enjoyed our anniversary dinner here. We order the Sunday Dinner, which is a ridiculous value. The portions are perfectly balanced and the food perfectly cooked, we're still talking about the Mahi Mahi which was apart of this. The service was considerate, timely, and the young lady who served us was very personable. Overall a great time. The décor was very nice, but the view of tennis courts isn't the best.

Our meal was delightful. Our server recommended the crab cakes and the grouper. Both favorites of ours so we went for them. We shared our dinners and both meals were not only delicious but unique in flavor and unlike anything we've had before. The Fried Green Tomatoes appetizer were right out of the pan and perfect with the sauce they serve them with. Serving sizes were generous and left no room for dessert unfortunately.
We live an hour away and had come to spend the night at the beach. We will come back again just for the food.

Still a favorite !
First of all the service was wonderful. Our waiter ( Tyler) couldn't have been more helpful and we appreciated that the chef came out to discuss the fresh oysters. The crab dusted grouper was delicious and the local Mayport shrimp were good fried or grilled. We were all impressed with quality of the food and the willingness of the staff to add the extra touches that made our family dinner so special. That includes the 7 maraschino cherries on a Shirley Temple that delighted our 6 year old !
