We went for lunch and this place was perfect! The ribs and cornbread were delicious and the service was great. I wish they had some more side items but what they do have was very good.

We had Julia as our server tonight and she brought with her besides some fantastic food, a wonderful attitude. Very Cheerful and friendly. Everyone at the table all had the BBQ pork sandwich, with various sides. I had to ask for the Carolina mustard bbq sauce that is usually kept in the back. We usually go to the Smokehouse for... More

When our power went out last night at home, we went to the Highlands Smokehouse for dinner and some football watching. The food is always good and the staff was very helpful in turning one of many TV sets they have to the game we wanted to watch. I had the brisket sandwich and my wife had 3 sides for... More

My wife and I walked into the place around 5:45pm on 9/24/14. The place was not very busy yet. We were quickly seated and seen by a waitress, who was very attentive during our stay. Our meals were timely served and were at good temps. The beef brisket and pulled pork were tasty and tender. The green beans, mashed sweet... More

We have often eaten here at the Highlands Smokehouse and always used to enjoy our meals here. I don't know what happened, but recently when we were here we were so disappointed. I had the chicken, and it was so dry, parts that I thought were bone were actually extremely dry chicken. The ribs were also very dried out. The... More

I've had several takeout meals from this place that were excellent, but on 08/31/14 I attended with my wife and daughter at the establishment. They were not busy but after placing my order I was told they were out of ice tea so I selected something else to drink. When our meals arrived ( 3 pulled pork sandwiches, I was... More

We visited the Highlands Smokehouse on Friday August 22nd hoping for a great meal, ordered the Fried Pickles and they were good but think they would probably feed eight people. I had the pulled pork plate with collard greens and BBQ beans, the pork was very dry and the beans were even dryer! Collards were good, wife had Catfish that... More
