Love Highlands, NC and this restaurant was simply fabulous. We ate outside - wonderful atmosphere. I ordered the locally caught Trout. Very generous portions. The desert was fabulous. Nothing but high high praise for this restaurant. One of the best meals I've had in years.

Stopped in on a day trip to see friends. I had the chicken wrap with goat cheese, kalamata olives, and artichoke spread (good) and my wife had the grilled salmon on a baquette (excellent)! The sweet potatoe chips were excellent. Staff was attentive and nice.
