the Veranda. Driven farther South by each treaty, Indians had retreated to south Florida, where they lived in peace. Cattlemen wanted their grazing lands, however, so Congress offered Indians a bounty to move west, and when they refused, sent in troops. In early 1850, a fort on the Caloosahatchee River was reactivated and named for Colonel Abraham Myers. It contained 57 buildings, a hospital, lawns and gardens; Manuel Gonzales delivered supplies and mail in his sloop.

Less the 2 ml from home, historic setting featuring upmarket Southern cuisine, a romantic piano bar & a garden courtyard. Fine dining!

Fine dining and good food. We only give this 3 stars as the service and quality of the food unfortunately does not match the restaurants of Charleston, SC. While it is true that the setting and surroundings are beautiful in this historic downtown building the gastronomic experience fails to support the price point break.

A lovely special occasion restaurant in downtown Ft. Myers, minutes from the house. Located in a lovely old building, the Veranda is more formal than most of the restaurants downtown. We have enjoyed the food and service, but save this for that more formal occasion. The Veranda does indeed have a lovely private outdoor verdanda that diners can enjoy in appropriate weather.
