The Veranda is considered by most to be one of the best restaurants in Fort Myers. Originally built as two homes in 1902, they were joined by a kitchen and a tropical courtyard and re-opened in 1978 as The Veranda. Dining in the courtyard is relaxing and romantic, surrounded by lush foliage, a waterfall and a goldfish pond. Reservations are highly recommended, and dress is business casual.
We had a reasonably priced, delicious lunch inside this very charming place. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. I had previously seen a comment about a bad table--right next to a wall with a brick fireplace on the other side. Someone with a laptop was seated in that spot when we were there. Many tables in the courtyard are shaded.
The dinner menu is pricey.
I found the the food was top noch. It was the freshest seafood and meats. The service was superb. They also filled thr waters every time they seemed like they needed more. If you want to go to a fine place for dinner, go the the extorainary Verandas located in Fort Myers.
A wonderful place, just a little tricky to find even when your at the corner of Broadway and Second. Looks like someones house, actually it had been two houses. Parking was limited at the door, but available across the street.
Noticed the cloth tablecloths and napkins when we entered, they gave us a nice table at the window even though we were wearing shorts.
Food was great and staff was friendly. Went there twice during our week in the area, should have gone more.
Going to the Veranda is like coming home to a warm welcome. It has been my #1 favorite for two decades. Being Florida, the Patio at Christmas can be as delightful as it is at Eastertime. The servers are excellent without being stuffy, the food is tremendous. My only complaint has been the lack of Valet parking, but hey, I don't mind all that much.
Veranda's ambiance reminds one of the history of the city - black-and-white photos hang on the walls of the bar, and if you're lucky, there'll be someone playing piano.
The food is impeccable southern-style staples with local seafood done exquisitely. Service is always friendly and hospitable.
Sit at the bar for lunch if you want to overhear local gossip, and do not leave without trying the pepper jelly.
When I was visiting Ft Myers on a family vacation, we came here for lunch. The crab cakes were amazing (heavy on the crab, light on the breading). Their homemade warm oat-molasses break is spectacular!
The restaurant is pretty upscale for Ft. Myers and there were lots of business lunches. Although we were dressed very casually (just coming from the beach), we didn't feel too out of place.
The building has some nice historic character and the service was great. Very pleasant!
This cosy little restaurant in down town Fort Myers is a grat place to get together either for a great lunch with friends or co-workers or as a wonderful dinner with your loved one. The food was wonderful and the place was cosy with both seating in and outdoors. A worthwhile trip.
