Awesome restaurant. Beautiful setting with an antebellum feel. My dad and I ordered the french dip sandwich. The meet was tendered, bun perfect but we would have liked a little more kick to the horseradish sauce.

The Veranda restaurant is a lovely setting for a nice quiet lunch. It's all outside so you need to watch the temperatures! It was a little hot the day we were there. I love the complimentary Crudites tray presented when you first sit down! They have a very nice wine/cocktail selection, the food is fresh and very tasty, and the service was very nice. Prices are fair as well.

Always a delight to dine at the Veranda ... the service is top notch, as well as the food. The BLTA is my favorite .. made with a delicious wheat bread. As for drinks, the champagne with Chambord is an excellent way to start. I never get tired of walking the gardens after lunch. An amazing property!!!!

Grand Traditions is just wonderful. The staff, food, landscape etc. Even though it was over 100 degrees, it was still a great family experience.

Alexa, our server, was great and accommodating. She was pleasant, warm and friendly. The food was high quality at a reasonable price, and the presentation always makes it extra special. The flowers are a plus! I have zero negative feedback. All the staff I spoke to were very friendly- I enjoyed my experience from beginning to end!

Blue water and a fountain, acres of green landscape, enjoyable walkways, nice side venues- add all of that to delicious food and quality service at a nice price, and you have a wonderful time ahead of you at Grand Traditions/Veranda.

Beautiful scenery and the heart shaped pond are wonderful additions to courteous service and fantastic food. Even the vegie/fruit plate that is a complimentary addition to the meals is fantastic.

A wonderful experience.

A lovely spot to share lunch with my friend. The view that the veranda looks out at is so calming. Be sure and walk the grounds after your meal. The water features and tropical landscaping make you feel as though you've escaped to an island!
The lunch entrees are more than generous and delicious. The wait staff couldn't have been friendlier or more accommodating, which isn't easy on a hot day in a mask and gloves (due to Covid).
The location is a bit out of the way (I live in the Golden Triangle) but it was worth the drive. I will definitely return!

The hostesses was on the phone when we got there. Didn’t get off or set the phone down. Didn’t make eye contact, and sent us to ball room to wait. Waitress who was tearing around doing her job, asked us to please see hostess, we said we did, she sat us. We had to wait very long time for our food. It was busy, but it was exceptionally long . I LOVE it there, and I assumed it was short handed due to Covid. Waitress was darling, food as always was superb. Hostess, however, well, different story.

We truly enjoyed our lunch. Had great service, pleasant waitress, delicious food.
The music was a little to loud and not very nice.
It was too hot to walk through the beautiful grounds, so we have to come back when it is cooler. My 90 year old friend had never been there and can hardly wait to get back

We had a Birthday celebration there on the Veranda and it was everyones first time! And boy did I knock it out of the park with everyone... They all had a wonderful time with many wonderful memories... We will definitely be going back and I have been sharing mouthfuls of positive comments to everyone I know about this treasure of a place... It made my Birthday memory a very Special one in my book... thanks so much Grand Tradition and the Veranda Staff you guys are Fantastic... I felt like a 65 year old Princess....
