Sit in or out! food is good, and so is service! Hubby loves the bar to watch sports while I shop! It's located in a main area of downtown Highlands.

Great place for a fine dining experience in a relaxed atmosphere. I was there with a newly rescued, nervous dog and the outside seating was great and they made us feel welcome. Will definitely come back!
