Very very good burgers here.

We had some delicious food here. 30 minute wait for a table but we had a party of 7. Would come back if in the area. Our servers were all very nice. There was even free parking!

I go here once a year and it is always exceptional. Of note, the buffalo-sauced, fried Brussels sprouts as an app. Tonight we had the kale salad, chicken fried porkchops and spaghetti Bolognese. The only complaint is we had to wait 45 minutes for a table, but with food like this I really can't blame everyone else for wanting to... More

The grandchildren got their Mac and Cheese quickly. Their black bean burgers were out of this world, and vegetable risotto really fresh and tasty. The place was packed and noisy but the service was good. A pleasant experience.

Stopped for an evening meal with my son and husband, besides delicious entree's for us all, I must say my cocktail, a Tom Collins was the best one I EVER had! We all tried different foods, short ribs, bolognese, and fish and were delighted! Great service! We went with the early bird crowd and there was a wait when we... More

Great local spot near Harvard. Delicious calamari appetizer. Our party ordered jambalaya, fish and chips, and a cheeseburger and all were excellent. Get there early on weekends, it got packed and pretty loud right after we arrived around 5:20, and tables are very close together.

This place is great, brunch is amazing, though get there extra early there is always a line. For dinner go for the curried goat, it's spicy as hell but delicious.

Once again, our last minute dinner plans brought us to The Highland Kitchen and once again we were not disappointed! We've always been impressed with the service and food, not to mention they carry my favorite cider Bantam!

We've been there several times and always get something different. Seafood to lamb to po'boys...they are all really good. Amazing how even our grandchildren will try different foods. Some what noisy and difficult to hear a conversation, but go early, have a drink and you won't care. Looking forward to coming back for more
