This is one of our go-to’s when we are in Highlands. The food is always good and the service is always excellent, warm and inviting. Sat at the bar last night for a late night dinner. The bartender was absolutely amazing and our food was exceptional.

We love this restaurant!!! My husband and I️ eat here often during the season. The bar is very small, but, if we can snag a place ,it’s where we prefer to sit! We had a fantastic server that we sure hope comes back next season! Thanks Aimee Alderson!!!

We dined with friends and enjoyed our time here. Seeing it highly ranked I was anticipating a great meal. It is a nice restaurant with good service. The menu and wine offerings have something for everyone. I started with Caprese salad and it was very good. My wife's Caesar salad was good but nothing special. For dinner I had spaghetti Bolognese and it was just average. The flavor was more bland than bolognese I have had at other places. My wife had the lobster ravioli and it also was good but not great. Overall a good place but the flavor of our dishes caused me to rate a little lower.

I love this restaurant. The food is absolutely delicious and they have excellent wines. I ate here three times in July while I vacationed for 2 weeks in Highlands with my husband.
