If you can only get one thing at this place get the Lobster Bisque. It is rich, but not too rich. It is creamy, but not too creamy. If you are on a diet, go run or walk a couple of miles up and down the White Horse Pike, then come back for the Bisque. Rest of the menu is... More

We had the Thursday special of prime rib, pub fries, and drink for $12. We were surprised by the quality and seasoning. It was trivia night and the place was bustling. Everyone was friendly and the tvs were tuned to various sports- hockey, baseball, and basketball. A very lively place with an extensive menu and daily specials.

Over the years i have eaten there and have take out from Hi Point. Love their food. The crab cakes are really good and their crab Bisque is excellent. The baked stuffed Flounder topped with crab imperial excellent. If you just want something small the high point special is very good, its a cheese steak on toasted roll with bacon.... More

Looks like an ordinary bar, but it is not! We take our family (kids 10 yrs old) there 2-4 times a month. Portions are great and never had a bad meal there! There spicy creamy crab bisque is to die for! Don't let the appearance of just "a bar" scare you away from here! It is on the corner of... More

My wife's family is from the area and there are three places we have to go Vic's, Joe and John's and High Point. We got takeout and of course we got the high point specials for a Christmas get together. They never disappoint and even take out is great!

If you want a no frills, beer and burger joint, Hi Point pub is fine. If you are fancy and civilized....No. If you want culinary delights....No. If you typically expect to spend $30 per dinner....No. You will be disappointed. But if you are a T-shirt person, a Ford pickup person, a person who likes Honey Boo Boo, you will like... More

Been going here for many years. Prime rib had been my favorite time and again. Aside from rather dramatic price increases they've eliminated smaller portion prime rib except one day per week. This used to be the best prime rib anywhere, not anymore. Don't know if corners have been cut by using lower quality meat, or if there's been.a change... More
