My wife and I found this great place while searching for a place to eat in Roanoke. Do NOT let the fact that it is next to a gas station turn you away. The Veranda Bistro is a lovely place inside, and has a large terrace too which overlooks a grassy tree-lined green space. Having lived in places with "real"... More

I am not kidding when I say I had not idea about this restaurant but was "led" there on my way from Massachusetts to Asheville. I was not feeling well, and had a horrible onset of laryngitis and pleurisy. I ordered the soup not knowing anything about it but knowing I needed something hot and nutritious. Now, two hours later,... More

I love it here. This is a small little mom and pop place that serves amazing Greek food. The service is as great as the food. I've been several times over the past few years and have had something different every time I've gone and have loved every meal. I definitely recommend it!!

Passing through Roanoke on our way from Maryland to Knoxville and was very fortunate to find Veranda Bistro. Had a wonderful dinner thanks to the great, friendly service we received and some of the best homemade Greek food. Red snapper was fantastic as was the chicken souvlaki!!! No doubt....we'll be back!!!

I have eaten at this restaurant several times. There is a lot of selection! I had the spaghetti one time. It was very good. I also had a calzone. It was delicious. They also have a few Greek options. And good dessert also. I would recommend.

We chose to dine outdoors which was the right choice. Ordered a pizza that was really good with a light crush which was really good, one of the best in the area. Service was friendly and prompt.

Nice restaurant that also offers seating on a deck overlooking a nice grassy area. Our food was delicious. I ordered the baked ziti. Servings are large. The staff is very friendly.

I live here in Roanke and this is my favorite place to eat. The food is always great and the family atmosphere is beyond anything I have experienced at any other family owned restaurant anywhere. It is a great place to sit down, relax, enjoy life and cheat on your diet.
