    Service was great! The Cadillac fish was very good. Good idea to make a reservation but sitting in the bar area is still a great experience. Would definitely go again.

    Fantastic wine selection, the Zinfandel they have by the glass one of the very best

    For our money, you can’t beat the hickory grilled beef filet, served with wilted greens and new potatoes roasted in duck fat. Read more

    Loved everything. Mixed grill, seafood muddle, baked oysters and beef cheeks all excellent. I live in Manhattan and this blows pretty much everything there away.

    One of my favorite places, next to Brio's and The Tavern, lower side of The Summit.

    Absolutely phenomenal! We had the baked grits appetizer ... It was recommended my many in the tips section. It didn't not disappoint. We also had the New Guinea hen risotto and short ribs ... Fab! ❤

    R.W. "Johnny" Apple, late writer for the NY Times, listed Highlands as the 5th best restaurant in the world, and he knew what he was talking about. You can see the article in the restaurant I think.
