Highlands Bar & Grill was featured in Departures magazine in spring 2014, which gave me the desire to visit for dinner. We had the chance to visit Birmingham from Atlanta in August - so I eagerly made a reservation for me and my husband, to celebrate my birthday. Service is impeccable. The menu choices are very interesting, and feature local... More

The meal, service, and atmosphere were all excellent. In my opinion, (perhaps not worth much) this is one of the best restaurants in Birmingham. If you have a chance for lunch or dinner, I would recommend considering this restaurant. Very good.

My wife and I have been to Highlands twice now and both times have been above and beyond anything we could of expected. She had the snapper and I had the lamb and both were outstanding. Be sure to book your reservation 2-3+ weeks in advance because it fills up quick!

Highlands has a long and distinguished history of superb dining quality and that continues. From the bar choices to the appetizers, entrees and wine list and then deserts....it's all top quality and every bit of it rivals the best anywhere. One can only marvel at the consistency and usually the simple but sophisticated flavors. New takes on old classic southern... More

We made these reservations, after hearing about Highlands for years! It was everything we were hoping for. We started at the bar, just grabbing a glass of wine. They also had a great selection of non-alcoholic drinks, which is always a nice touch. The little gem lettuces salad and stone ground baked grits made perfect appetizers. The salad had an... More

Highlands is one of the best restaurants in Birmingham so we went in with very high expectations. When we ate there, we asked if Frank Stitt was at the restaurant because my sister loves to cook. The hostess said he was at Botega that night, so we figured that would be all. Unbeknownst to us, she called him and he... More

After reading a Garden & Gun article about Frank Stitt and Highlands, I knew I wanted to try the restaurant. It was a wonderful evening. The room is comfortable and sort of "clubby." The service was excellent but very "unstuffy." We shared the baked grits appetizer---souffle-like with ham, mushrooms,thyme, and Parmesan sauce. It was delicious. I had the seared sushi-grade...
