Fabulous in every way. Note my daughter has soy and dairy allergies. They were perfect in providing options in every category; appetizers, salad, entre, dessert. Instead of saying the typical one at a time, "Let me check. Yes, that has soy/dairy"- with no other assistance. Food was hot, very tasty, and the service was quick and pleasant. Loved this place.

Not one to write reviews but the food was really good and the booths are fairly private, which is good for a date. My bill came to $95 for a dinner for 2 plus some alcohol, if that's useful for anyone.

Busy night for Valentines Day. There were many open tables in the restaurant when we arrived on time for our reservation. We were given a large table to share in the bar with whoever was next to be seated. They did not seat someone there when we opposed. With a reservation we should have had a table in the restaurant that is quiet & quaint . We mentioned that and were told this was all they could do. The bar was noisy. Service and food were excellent!

Six friends for dinner on a Saturday night and everyone was happy with their entrees. Service was good although it appeared that our server had several other large tables and that
seemed to slow him down some on water refills and additional wine and drink orders. Overall, the Veranda is still one of the best places to dine in StarkVegas.

We had a wonderful waiter & the food was really good except our entree risotto was cold! We sent it back & the staff did apologize & they made it right with our appetizer being free & they brought us a free dessert. We will be back.

We had a good experience - tried the crab claws which were very good and the apple martini which was divine! The only negative was that the waiter was very slow and dinner took almost 2 hours

Very pleasant staff. Steak special with Cajun option was exceptional, the filet was perfectly prepared. The shrimp in my shrimp and grits were perfect, the gravy may have had a touch too much salt. Desserts, awww! No bread pudding. We passed.

In town for first week of school at Mississippi State. Found this quaint spot. Great food and excellent service. Semi casual. Specialty drink were very good. Could improve on stocked liquor, but overall a great experience

Salads were awesome, appetizers good, main course was just average. A little overpriced for the quality.

Decent wine list but overall a limit bar selection. Dom Perignon $365 a bottle - really?

Starkville needs to step it up!

The Veranda is a nice place to have a business lunch or dinner. The food is tasty and the service is pretty good. Try the cheese logs or the duck!

Great meal. Wish we had asked to sit in the restaurant rather than the nice reserved booth in the bar. Not really too loud but a little distracting. Watching them make those great drinks, like my outstanding Old Fashion, was hard not to watch. Had the Surf and Turf. Would definitely recommend it. The gorgonzolla salad was a real surprise as was the lobster bisque. We will eat there again. Our waitress Hanna was great!!!

My significant other and I went to the Veranda for his birthday. While I would have enjoyed them having a dessert menu rather than telling us what they have, the food was FANTASTIC. They had a porterhouse lamb chop special that was well worth it. They have a lot of gorgonzola on the menu which we both found odd but it was all delicious.

Our time at the Veranda was beyond perfect. From the sweet welcome to our wonderful waiter, Claude, to the special accommodations given to us for our bachelorette dinner, we had a wonderful time. I will recommend this place to anyone seeking to enjoy a special occasion or just a dinner to get away.

Have been to the Veranda a dozen times over the past few years. Service and food has always been good. This night however, service still good, food however, was just average. Response around the table (9 people).....food was "ok".....not fabulous, not great, just ok. We arrived at 5 pm and the restaurant was not busy yet...so it must have been just an off night.

It was an uncrowded Wednesday.
Service was incredibly slow.
It took 2 1/2 hours for salad and entree.
The food wasn't bad, but I'll never go back due to service.
I would encourage all who read this to stay away.

Our first time to The Veranda, but it won't be our last! We enjoyed every part of our meal, from the unique appetizers to homemade salad dressings, to fabulous filet mignon to delicious homemade blackberry cobbler. We were in town to visit our college student so and wanted to take him out for a special evening. It was special!!

Food service and ambience were all excellent. The swordfish was outstanding and while I usually don't eat Brussels sprouts, the Veranda did an outstanding job of making an inedible vegetable almost palatable.
The only fly in the salad dressing so to speak is the parking which is a long hike if you do not luck out and get one of the few close in spaces.
