Excellent diverse food in Highland in St. Paul

We went here for lunch, knowing that the menu was diverse, yet every dish is very good. We were not disappointed. I had Wild Mushroom Meatloaf which was very good and my wife had a grilled cheese sandwich, also very good. These were new entrees for them and they succeeded. Our waitress was... read more

The Highland Grill has been remodeled since our last visit. It looks nice. The fish and chips were still good. One of us liked the chowder and one thought it was just okay. Still a nice place to stop for lunch or dinner.

Changed menu and got rid of Chicken Involtini. Best menu item ever. Got rid of the experience servers and replaced with disinterested servers who didn't know what they served. Longtime customer will NEVER return. We left. Why does a business eliminate one of their top selling items and get rid of the great servers. Very poor business decision. Guessing they... More

I have been a regular customers at the Grill for many years and have eaten there countless times. The combination of funky atmosphere, regular welcoming staff and good food guaranteed regular returns. I was taken aback by my recent visit last week after the recent makeover. Where to start? The decor - leather banquettes with white lattice chairs combined to... More

The Highland Grill has lost its way. I'm sorry to have to write such a review. Re-decorated, new menu, staff have new uniforms. Honestly, I felt like I walked into The Cracker Barrel. The staff are wearing these blue and white checked shirts reminiscent of old cowboy shirts. It no longer has that hip, retro feel. Brown leather and wood... More

Wow, really wonderful breakfasts! This is a popular place so you may have to wait but it is so worth it. It's a good value too. It was the very best eggs benedict I've ever had. It was a splurge, I don't usually eat so heavy, but if you're going to splurge, that's a great choice! Nice people there, too.

So, there we were, trying to find a pet friendly restaurant in Saint Paul, and for some reason the name Highland Grill sounded familiar. When we arrive it was clear I had been there sometime in the distant past, because I recognized the neighborhood. What I was not expecting was a newly reopened restaurant with food this good. First, the... More

Yesterday my husband and I decided to have a very late breakfast and decided to go to an old favorite, one that we have enjoyed since it opened. Although both inside and outdoors was packed with people we had only a 15 minute wait. Because I had just had surgery on my upper lip (don't ask), I ordered what I... More

Wealthy neighborhood satisfied with mediocre, overpriced diner. The food's all right, I suppose. But there's no reason to wait in line for it.

This is one of our family's go to local options. The food is always excellent and pleases a wide variety of tastes. We love the turkey burger, soups, sweet potato fries, waffles and burritos. They serve great breakfast options all day and normally have some good specials as well. The staff is always friendly. It can take a little while... More
