Had a very nice and relaxed meal. Excellent service. Willing to tone down the spice on a dish upon request. Great wine special. Pleasant atmosphere. A winner.

We stopped by for lunch via motorcycle on our way to Chimney Rock, NC. We sat inside as all seats were taken outside. I ordered grilled vegetable sandwich which came with a choice of sweet potato chips or wild rice. Best sliced portabella mushrooms I have had. All the vegetable were grilled to perfection. The garlic cheese spread on crusty... More

I have never written a review before and am actually rather easy to please, but was so disappointed in dinner I just had to. The filet was over cooked and tasted more "boiled" than grilled - completely tasteless and overpowered by pimento cheese topping. What was I thinking? The fried green tomatoes were thick cut and didn't get done -... More

Several friends lunched there yesterday. It was wonderful. We sat outside on a lovely day, enjoyed a glass of wine with lunch. I had the goat cheese, fig and walnut sandwich. FABULOUS!

We met some friends here for lunch upon our arrival in Highlands. It was nice to have the outdoor seating. The manager seated us and took our drink orders but forgot to bring them until the waitress followed up with him. Other than that the service was good but the food just ok. My husband had the bar-b-q sandwich and... More

Competition in Highlands is stiff, and this is another great place to enjoy! Friday's feature some live music outside for all the shop's and this is nice time to go! Quality food, service and atmosphere!

Everyone at our table had the spinach salad or the mixed greens salad with crab cakes. The crab cakes were so good that we ordered extra, All crab. The goat cheese on the salad was fantastic. We ate inside because the outdoor tables were taken. It was still a great lunch!

A creative menu, delicious food, local beers on tap, a lovely atmosphere and a very friendly staff - what more could you ask for lunch during a beautiful summer afternoon in Highlands?

We had sandwiches which were very tasty. The rice salad side was tangy and delicious, but the sweet potato chips were cold, chewy and greasy. The wine was good, and reasonably priced. The food was a bit overpriced, but definitely above most lunch menus. Very nice art on the walls which added a nice touch to the experience. With so... More
