    We went to the Veranda for my birthday dinner and had a party of 8. It was a great dining experience--the food and wine were great!! I would definitely recommend the Veranda to all visiting Starkville.

    Food and service were just ok. We hadn't eaten here in some time and decided to give it a try again. For the price there are better placed to eat in Starkvile. It was nice for a change of pace, but we only go to Starkville a couple timed a year to visit put son at MSU And will probably not go bac.

    Food was, as expected, delicious. I've eaten several times in the past and will continue eating there when I'm in town. We had a group of eight and they were extremely accommodating. Thanks,

    Once a year my sisters and I travel to a common location for our "girls only" luncheon. We have settled on the Veranda as a delightful and accommodating spot. The booths make for the privacy we need, and the service staff never rushes us through our two-hour meal!

    We had a wonderful meal to eat, every course. Our big disappointment was that I had made a reservation for our Anniversary, and noted that this was our very first time to eat there, yet we were seated in probably the only booth where you're closely and directly exposed to the noise from the kitchen. And, while our waitress was very courteous and mostly attentive, it took several minutes for us to receive our to-go boxes.

    I visited this place for the first time with my long time girlfriend. I got the filet steak and she the salmon. Both of these dishes were delicious. The food was very high quality and full of flavor, the classy presentation of everything with a slight southern vibe was very well executed. The hostess and servers were all pleasant and took care of everything with no problems. An outstanding restaurant in Starkville that fits many occasions.

    This was my second year anniversary with my girlfriend when we decided to go to the Veranda in Starkville. The food was amazing as well as the service! The amazing thing about this experience was that somebody had paid for our meal!! Out waitress was incredible and lively! I would recommend this place for friends in the future.

    Our first visit to Veranda was based on a recommendation from friends. The waiter was very good and attentive, explaining the specials and getting the drinks and appetizers quickly. I was torn between the salmon dinner and my favorite Shrimp and Grits. My spouse ordered the chicken pasta. Well, I should have ordered the salmon. As soon as the Shrimp and Grits arrived, I knew I was doomed. The plate was filled with a sauce, that I am sure must have been mentioned on the menu, but one that I found thick and gooey. The grits were fried grit wedges and the shrimp was, well, mealy. The spring rolls were great, though, and I was glad to see Kendall Jackson Chardonnay on the wine list. Chicken pasta was very good.

    Our group of 8 was seated right away. Our waiter was very professional, personable and prompt. He took very good care of our group. We tried some of the specials - everyone raved about the eggplant appetizer. The Gorgonzola salad was a hit and everyone enjoyed their entrees too. I would definitely go back to the Veranda.
