We had heard great reviews about The Veranda and today was our first lunch with friends from out of town. Three of us ordered the burger (highly recommended from former diners) and although it is piled huge (which makes it impossible to eat without a fork) it was nothing special; plus they were all over cooked. The other choice was... More

Everything Christmas in a beautiful Victorian setting, with a lake a waterfall, carolers and even Santa. The brunch was wonderful. It will become a Christmas tradition.

This is a great restaurant to celebrate a special lunch date with friends or family. Seating is on a beautiful veranda with white table-clothed wrought iron tables overlooking a most magnificent garden and pond. The menu is mostly salads and sandwiches served with one side (from a list of choices). I have been here several times and have never been... More

The Grand Tradition is a large private park with beautiful landscaping waterfalls and a large lake. There are walking trails and lots of picnic tables. The Veranda Restaurant is located in the main building. There are tables inside and on the veranda overlooking the lake. We were there for lunch on a weekday and got a nice table outside on... More

We often take our out of town visiting guest here. There is a quite varied menu to choose from. Meals are served on the veranda of an old classic home. Service is always good and so is the food. Also available is a "picnic" box that you can take to other areas of the property. I think these may have... More

When we arrived we waited 15 min (we were early) and were refused a table in the shade though there were tables available. It was 90+ degrees in the shade and the chairs are metal, so sitting in blistering sun was not an option. No apologies given. We left. Not sure I'll be back. It's silly that they did not... More

This is a fabulous garden for weddings and events but few know of the tiny intimate outdoor veranda for brunch on weekends and lunch on weekdays---so reservations are a must! The menu is extensive that also offers wine and beer. All the tables overlook the heart shaped lake sitting. We both had the BBQ chicken salad that was huge -... More

Although the seating is very limited, the view as you sit on the rear veranda overlooking the manicured gardens and lake with beautiful flowers is worth a trip. The food is tasty and beautifully presented.

I probably am a little bias as we had our oldest daughters wedding at this beautiful local a few years back. However, came with some family to enjoy a delightful brunch at the Veranda restaurant. Sit on the spacious veranda and enjoy a pomegranate and blueberry mimosa or spicy bloody mary while enjoying the heart shaped pond and abundant foliage.... More

I was visiting my family in Fallbrook & Long Beach (from Boston) and my daughter suggested Sunday Brunch here. We had a reservation for four, which is a MUST. The venue was simply "A little piece of heaven"! The Veranda was lovely overlooking the heart shaped pond & magnificent unique gardens. The tables were set with tablecloths & flowers. We... More
