    Verandah had just reopened after Ian. Rather empty. The food and service were terrific. The dessert, Pistachio Panna Cotta with Chocolate Grenache was top notch as was the wine. Pricey but well worth it! Will come again this trip to the beach.

    Best meal we have EVER eaten! Service was exceptional also. My husband had the red snapper and I had the diver scallops- not only were they great, but the accompanying starches were outstanding! Also had the Bruschetta and melon salad- both very good too! Desserts were nothing to rave about though

    It was a birthday dinner. We had the tenderloin, and the grouper and the chicken. Everyone loved their meal. Our overall experience was grand. You feel like you’re a part of a family with your waitstaff. You don’t have a server, or host, you have an entire crew. It’s truly a remarkable historical southern experience. You must enjoy the treasure at least once in your lifetime.

    Verandah is becoming a favorite! We’ve eaten there 3 times recently and the food and service have been wonderful. The food is excellent. This time we had their house made pastas- the lamb and the mafalde were delicious. The lamb was richly flavored but not so heavy as a raging and the pasta was perfectly cooked. The mafalde was excellent - artichokes and lemon complimenting each other. The melon salad was beautiful- thin slices of melons cooked around the greens in small cylinders. The cioppino was less of a soup/stew and more of a composed selection of grouper, shrimp and clams served over a sauce. It was cooked w skill. We talked wine with the waiter and the manager shared information about the excellent olives they always serve. We’ll be returning soon.

    After many years, we decided to try the Verandah again. Boy were we pleasantly surprised. Not only has the interior been given new life, but the new menu is noteworthy. We started with the crab dip... sooo lemony and not overly cheesy. The diver scallops with risotto and the chicken with sun dried tomatoes were also excellent. When Omni first took over the Verandah, we were disappointed but it seems they have righted the ship, and now it will remain on our short list. Service was also really good.

    Hadn't been to Verandah in a while but decided to go for our anniversary dinner. So glad we did. I would call it "Upscale Italian," and definitely a good step beyond ordinary. A terrific experience.

    The food at the Verandah is excellent, definitely well done, and the service is always exceptional; the people who are employed seem to take a genuine pride in the quality of the food and service. It is set in a beautiful Southern area, surrounded by live oaks and Spanish moss; the Verandah is a real treat. It's a bit expensive, for my budget anyway, and for that reason I gave it only four stars for value; it does, however, justify the price in every conceivable way. For special occasions the Verandah is difficult to beat!

    My husband and I had a lovely evening at Verandah. The service was excellent- the staff is well trained and the primary servers are knowledgeable and observant. The food was wonderful- I had the snapper which was perfectly cooked. It was moist, fresh and well complemented by the yellow beets and faro mix. The romanesco sauce was excellent. My husband had the scallops which were perfectly seared and we both enjoyed the freshly baked bread and the olives from Georgia. The sea beans in the soup were an interesting burst of salt and we appreciate this use of local fresh fare. The restaurant also uses their own honey in various preparations, including a smokey bourbon old fashioned which is very aromatic but the smoke does not overwhelm the excellent bourbon. The wine list is solid and the prices per bottle vs per glass encourage buying by the bottle if that works for your party. Try Verandah and you will be greeted by a very amiable hostess and the rest will be enjoyable too.

    Every aspect of our experience here was amazing. The food was top notch and Kyle (the manager) and Nephie (waitress) made our experience even better than expected. Another staff member also volunteered to hold and comfort a crying infant, going above and beyond her expected duties. Absolutely recommend this restaurant!

    The service was great, the soda was not flat and extra fizzy which set the tone for the rest of the meal. The focaccia, olives (in Georgia Oil), and tomato oil were yummy. The main meal, crab crusted grouper was amazing… if you are debating on what to get, this is it. Dessert was okay but it could have been bc I was so stuffed from the main meal. I thought the ambiance was very zen and the view (what I could see that wasn’t covered by condensation) was pretty.

    We went to the Verandah to celebrate our anniversary. As we walked through the doors we were greeted smiling and friendly staff. We were seated in a comfy booth. Our waiter, Richard was great! We had the Burrata, the ravioli and the grouper all of which were delicious. We ended the evening with an adult affogato. Overall great experience.

    We weren’t staying at the Omni so getting to the restaurant was a real challenge, especially since we arrived just as a thunderstorm began! The staff and service were great but the food was just ok and I considered it over-priced for the quality. There was nothing special about the food that would cause us to want to return.

    I agree with one of the reviews, it’s very old and Dungy looking, but that said, the food & service was very good. We had the snapper and beet salad. We ask for gf bread and they brought us a gf focaccia, very good. The parking lot is a little odd as we could not pull up to the restaurant.

    Had a fabulous 40 th Anniversary dinner Saturday evening. Everything from the menu, beverages, food & service were top notch. This was our first dining experience there but we can’t wait to go back. We were initially going to be seated near a large, noisy group but once we asked & we’re seated a little further away ( ask for window seats) there was no issue. Table water tastes pretty bad so ask for bottled still or bubbly. Otherwise, just enjoy a wonderful meal & dining experience. 4 1/2+ Stars!

    Interesting combinations of flavors, all of which totally worked. We got the shrimp bisque, cioppino, linguine/clams, and pasta/shrimp. We also got the chocolate mousse cake for dessert. With our drinks and 20+%tip it came to about $170, which I call great value. Thank you!
