We have often thought about eating here just not taken the time until last Saturday. We enjoy a wonderful lunch under the big Oak tree. Our server Amanda was delightful she offered just the right amount of attention yet allowed us to enjoy our lunch with out being rushed. My wife had shrimp and grits while I had the Orange... More

The food and drinks were good. The atmosphere was better. The best lunch is at Wild Thyme. Better crab cakes there.

We walked in for lunch off the street and were seated immediately. The outdoor dining overlooks the main street of Highlands, and is surrounded by trees. The menu is creative and the food was delicious. We really enjoyed our lunch.

I don't review many resteraunts, but I had to this time around because the food and service was sooooo good. I highly reccomend the burger and homemade chips. For dessert, they have a superb white chocolate mousse with puff pastries and fruit. All the food was fresh and tasty. The best part is, like many other places in the highlands,... More

A friend and I decided to stop for lunch and couldn't have been happier with our decision. Totally recommend the Red Pepper and Gouda Soup...if I could only get that recipe!! Our husbands joined us for dinner tonight and we were not disappointed. There wasn't a bad comment to be heard...from Shrimp & Grits, Ahi Tuna, steak special, etc...everything was... More

Quaint, delicious, great service! We've had lunch outside several times, and have always enjoyed a great meal with great service. However, we wandered inside one day and found an absolute treasure. Adorable inn, with a lovely restaurant inside. Same delicious food! Great variety to choose from with generous portions. Love that the staff is made up of kind local folks,... More

We had lunch at this nice spot on the main downtown drag. I had the Shrimp and Grits that were very good and very nice presentation, wife had the Chicken Salad sandwich that she also enjoyed. Service was good and the outdoor live music from lady on guitar and singing was a very nice touch. We looked inside of the... More

We stopped here for dinner and had no trouble getting a table, as the kids were back in school. The food was enjoyed by all at our table. I had the Ahi Tuna, which was excellent. Others at our table enjoyed shrimp and grits, a chef's salad and chicken pot pie. Prices were moderate, given the location in a resort... More

We ate at Bistro on Main on our next to last night in Highlands, and the food was surprisingly good. I forget what fish I had, but it was covered with shrimp and the whole thing turned out to be very nice. It was a beautiful day, so we opted for the outside seating which proved to be very enjoyable... More
