    Be sure to check out some of the daily specials - they're usually VERY good. The Highlander was featured on Diners Drive-ins and Dives from the Food Network.

    The pot stickers are ridiculously good, the music selection is awesome and the drinks are well priced. Go in the Spring and spend a night on the patio or hit up the back bar for tunes and pool.
