Interesting setting, questionable food

I've been to this restaurant a number of times with friends and family. While I truly enjoy the unique setting, there is a lack of consistency in the food selection. Sometimes the quality is excellent and tasty--other times very lack luster and boring. In addition, even with reservations the... read more

Atmosphere is great (in a beautiful nursery) food is great. Not great service and a bit slow though the atmosphere makes up for most of that. While you are waiting you can walk thru the nursery and enjoy the scenery.

This restaurant is so popular, that there's always a wait. You are given a beeper though, and are free to wander the grounds of the nursery. Weekends are extremely busy, but weekdays are less crowded. We had a turkey berry cream cheese sandwich, and a portobello sandwich along with kale salads. Both were tasty. The restaurant is in a large... More

With a well organized selection of plants chosen to do well locally, a visit to High Hand Nursery is a pleasant way to pick up the plants you need. The people who work there are knowledgeable and helpful. Prices are higher than at a big box store, but the quality is generally better.

I would like to live here! Beautiful grounds, plants you don't find just everywhere, stunning pottery, statuary and succulents.

High Hand Nursery and Cafe has a lot to offer: gorgeous setting, attentive, friendly waitstaff, and tables that aren't on top of one another. So why not a "10?" My "eggs over hard" were inedible. They looked as though they had been cooked for 20 minutes - "egg over hard" merely means that the yolk is cooked through. The potatoes... More

I took my elderly mother to lunch here on a Sunday afternoon in September. We put our name in for a table, and then looked around during the 40 minute wait. We loved looking at the garden areas, the garden gift shops, and resting by the poi pond. It was relaxing, entertaining and easy for me to manipulate the wheel... More

Friends and I keep trying to have a great lunch in the restaurant. The grounds are the reason to visit. They food needs to be as creative as the nursery. I understand they grow much of what they have in the restaurant. But the prices are toooo far out for the meal that you receive.I'll stick to the gardens, Keep... More

The food at High Hand was absolutely wonderful and the atmosphere so inviting. Ten of us had a very relaxing lunch and then wondered the nursery grounds. We found some plants that we wanted and bought them. All in all the day was fabulous!!

This is a very nice location. The nursery is adorable and there are many things to look at. There are stores with cute nursery items in the same area. Make a reservation if you can because there is a long wait if you don't. We waited over an hour. The restaurant itself is a big open room that you think... More
