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.
Consistently good food. The staff made a great wine recommendation. We enjoyed it thoroughly. I had the lobster over angel hair which isn’t the way it’s usually served and it was stunning!
Gorgeous view, excellent food, but service was slow. A table behind us that came in after us, seemed to get preferential service and treatment. When our server did arrive, she was charming and saved what was shaping up to be a bad experience. Kudos to her and the chef!
The food was phenomenal. We didn’t get to see buoy the view as it was dark out but the ambiance was very nice as well.
Our service was terrible!
This is a special restaurant
The short ribs were a 10..
We’ve been coming here for years and I think it gets better every time
We enjoy our meals here and the service was excellent!
Amazing dinner! All was wonderful. Highly recommend lobster piccata!
Very enjoyable experience, food is very good!
Lively atmosphere, live piano, lovely!!
We always have a wonderful time dining at On the Verandah..
Everything was great.
went for sunday champangne brunch - be sure and book in advance - great prefix menu with ample options - salad bar/soup/food was all superb - it will definately be on our every sunday brunch list while in highlands
We had a wonderful dinner at On The Veranda. Great service and excellent food.
First time here. 6:30p Friday. I told my husband preemptively the reviews were all over the place. We have been to every fine dining spot in the Highlands so figured to try it out.
Like many many many other reviewers, we were disappointed in our entrees. The app and salad course were both delicious. Husband chose the fish special, halibut, and it was mediocre yet better than mine. I chose the grouper and it was not prepared well at all. Chargrilled and bland at best. We had the exact same sides accompanying our dishes which also were bland, cous cous and undercooked veg. Disappointed in the value. Surprised at how this place stays busy..
Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable! We would have loved a lake view but were told those are available based on date of reservation. NOW we know! Lovely dinner anyway.
The grilled oysters were the best we have ever had.
