The 4 of us had very good meals on Saturday night. Steak, lobster and trout along with a bottle of B Cellars red wine. We dined on the porch overlooking the lake. Outstanding!
Wonderful atmosphere! Great food! Friendly service! We love it every time we come!
Birthday dinner for my husband. We were seated on the outside deck, beautiful sunset over the tree tops and lake. Ordered the hummus app, excellent dish, entrees were a little challenged. There was not a vegan option on entrees selection so kitchen made up a vegetable plate which was a fresh local selection good plate, nothing really special. The plates price tag was hard to swallow,$27 for a veggie plate. Not good. That price tag was comparable to the meat or fish entrees. Overall a nice dinner, great staff, Tom enjoyed the shrimp salad entree. Good wine list.
Best food at a high end restaurant we have had in a good while. Service was spot on. professional but friendly. Beautiful setting on the lake. Not crowded or noisy. Very relaxing.
On the Verandah was a lovely place. While the lake views are nice...the restaurant is all enjoyable and it's more than a place to see the water. We had a nice night with good food and good drinks. I ordered one cocktail and got another. It was not a big deal but I would have felt better if the server cared more. They were another wise attentive and helpful. Food was delicious. I'd go back anytime we were in the area.
Very quaint restaurant north of Highlands. Beautiful view of Lake Sequoyah from the deck. Our server Deanna was great - very personable and upbeat. The trout was very good.
This restaurant never disappoints. The food and service are always exceptional. Sitting on the back screened in area looking at the lake during sunset is perfect!
The food was outstanding. It did take awhile to get our drinks, and meals. It didn't seem like they had enough waitstaff which could be due to early in season. Overall we will return for the simple fact the food was wonderful. I will however know now to request to eat out in back with a view. We ate inside. Highly recommend!
Anniversary Dinner with brother and sister in law celebrating 35 years! Perfect night!
Tables were close together. Good was good.
Christie was an awesome server! Allan a knowledgeable bartender. Food was delicious!
Had a great time at this restaurant. Food is excellent! Nice lake view!
excellent crafted menu in a comfortable setting with attentive wait staff. Piano player came on at 7:00 for an added bonus. The occasion was a special meeting of old friends and our dining experience made the evening even more of a delight.
Great waitress. She was professional, friendly and patient.
Great Easter Brunch!!! Our family had a great time!!!
Absolutely perfect in every way! Food was fantastic and service was excellent!
Wonderful place for dinner or brunch, and on a beautiful setting overlooking a lake. So glad they are back open for the season.
Made reservations for our 30 year anniversary. I spoke with the establishment and confirmed they new about this milestone event. We got there 20 minutes before our reservation and the restaurant was almost empty. The hostess said she didn’t know if she could seat us! She then proceeded to take us to the absolute worst table in the restaurant. No view, in a corner near an open door to the outside.
The food was wonderful and our server was a true professional. Five stars had the host staff been better.
We were celebrating our 25th anniversary. Beautiful scenery. Very good waitress - did not rush us
On The Verandah is one of our favorite places. It is hard to match the incredible views and wonderful food. Our server, Debra, was great.
No special occasion, just one of our favorite places in Highlands. We are never disappointed when we dine there. Friendly staff,great chef and Alan the bartender is excellent. Plan on going again soon.
Excellent food, service. Great experience
Great food as always! When we first arrived to our table, there was confusion as to whom our waitress was going to be. It was a rocky start but our waitress performed exceptionally and she did an outstanding job.
My calamari was to dark and tuff like over cook, my steak over cook. I ask for medium well but was well. Not impressed at all with the food. Overall the service was good.
Hostess was horrible. Food was subpar for the cost. Did I mention the hostess was horrible?
If you want the absolute worst table in the restaurant, be sure to let them know you're celebrating your anniversary. When we asked to move due to the blinding sun and an open door in our back, the hostess told us there were no available tables, even though there were at least 7 empty. We expressed our concern to our waitress and she talked with the hostess who seemed annoyed and didn't want to be bothered. The hostess still refused to move us and the waitress had to request again. Throughout the evening, we watched as the hostess moved parties around who were frustrated with their seating. The hostess may need a lesson or two on customer interaction.
The dinner was expensive with subpar food in quality and quantity. The menu has a small selection of entrees. My $12 salad was more like the quality of a $4 salad I could have made at home.
Overall, we weren't impressed.
As always the food was superior. However, the service (hostess and server) was horrible. Very slow (took 20 min to even place a drink order) Order was brought out incorrectly (lobster instead of lamb) and then water glasses were unfilled, a refill on wine was near impossible to get, and we gave up and didn’t attempt to order a dessert. This has been a favorite of ours for a long time. We will certainly go back and will hope for the wonderful experience we’ve had for the last three years with this hopefully one time exception.
The view of the lake at On the Veranda is the perfect backdrop for a relaxing meal. The staff was very friendly and the food was delicious. My husband and I had the snapper special and our daughter had the curry shrimp, we were all pleased with our choices.
So glad that On The Verandah is open for the Season in Highlands. They always treat us great and even when it is busy in season they always try to work us in.
Best place ever for brunch on a Sunday afternoon.
Really enjoyed our first visit here. Good taste and presentation were excellent. Our server was attentive and helpful. We highly recommend it.
unfriendly attitude from hostess
price for quality of food was poor
shades are needed to block the intense sun
We had never eaten at On the Veranda and were very pleasantly surprised! Dinner was fabulous and service was terrific! Server made wine suggestion that was perfect! We enjoyed our night out and will definitely be back and would recommend to others!
Absolutely wonderful evening for four generations of our family. Food and service outstanding and young fellow enjoyed walking down to the water at sunset. We will return!!!!!!! Barbara and David Lance Calhoun ga.
Very nice New Years Eve dinner.
We have dined there many times and is always consistently enjoyable, especially with the pianist.
Absolutely delicious food! Great server with an outstanding personality! Enjoyable experience!!!
We had Christmas Eve reservations but they didn’t seem to plan well for the crowd. Our server eas difficult to track down so we ended up asking the busboy for information. Food was ok, restaurant was loud. Not sure we will return.
Lovely Christmas Eve Dinner! Piano music was a nice touch for a festive occasion.
The ahi tuna was fantastic and the Asian salad was soooo good! I loved the dressing.
We listened to the dessert offerings and didn’t feel tempted.... but, then again, we did not save any room. :-)
We luckily were seated in the main dining room which looked more desirable than the porch.
Great experience! Thanks!
We received our salad promptly. We then waited at least 30 minutes for our entree. There weren't too many tables filled and we looked around and most were not served. The waitress was very nice and finally came to the table to say they were backed up in the kitchen and we were next in line. We have been there many times and were seriously disappointed this time. It may be a while before we go again.
It seems the overall food quality has gone down over our past two visits. Sorry to see as it was one of our favorites!
Attended for Thanksgiving Buffet. Good food. Enjoyed piano player.
