Sunday Brunch for my son, his wife and 15 month grandson. Met by hostess who escorted us to our table and timely met by our warm receptive waitress. We were served Mamosas and given menus to peruse. A high chair was set up for our grandson who was sleeping on his dad's shoulder. Caesar salads and... read more

We accidentally discovered Highlands NC several years ago while our exploring the area after a trade show. Our next trip up we decided to spend some extra time in Highlands and in our search for a place to stay found Skyline Lodge. The Architecture and history of this place is amazing, and worth the stay just to have that particular... More

This is a seasonal restaurant - open early May to November, and breakfast is served only on Saturdays and Sundays from 8 - 11. There's also a Sunday Brunch from 12 - 2 (a real deal at $20!). The sign over the restaurant, at the Lodge, says "Altitudes." My sister and myself wanted to try some place different and I'm... More

We were staying at the Skyline Lodge and had late dinner reservations in Highlands so headed to Altitudes for some cocktails and appetizers. The crab cakes were magnificent and just plain crab, if there was any filler we didn't see or taste it. And our cocktails were superb. The escargots were served in a puff pastry with a lovely light... More

A Frank Lloyd Wright inspired lodge with a surprisingly good restaurant; especially for Sunday brunch and Friday night prime rib. Excellent service with generous cocktails and an acceptable wine list.

We have been to the lodge and restaurant several times over the many years. It is a favorite escape. The lodge is comfortable, the restaurant fantastic. You should be so lucky to dine here. The squash ravioli was superb, I will find this recipe. The fish is always fresh and prepared expertly. The prime rib is to die for... Sitting... More
