Let $\mathbb{K}$ be a field of characteristic 0, G the direct sum of two copies of the additive group of integers. For a total order $\prec$ on G, which is compatible with the addition, and for any $\dot c_1,\dot c_2\in \mathbb{K}$, we define G-graded highest weight modules ${M}(\dot c_1,\dot c_2, \prec)$ over the Virasoro-like algebra $\bar L$, indexed by G. It is natural to call them Verma modules. In the present paper, the irreducibility of ${M}(\dot c_1,\dot c_2, \prec)$ is completely determined and the structure of reducible module ${M}(\dot c_1,\dot c_2, \prec)$ is also described.
