One of the only places in Highlands that is consistently great. The filet is delicious every time. The olive stuffed chicken is a wonderful tradition, and it's hard to go wrong with anything else. my only gripe is it's always too bright , Please dim the lights in the evening.

Dinner consisted of soup(freshly prepared), goat cheese salad, salmon, coconut shrimp, panned grouper and dessert. Went back the following day for lunch. Multiple choice of sandwiches and soups/salads were offered. Both meals were two of the best we had in Highlands. There is an outdoor eating area which was ideal for lunch.

My wife, infant son, and myself visited Highlands to spend time with our Aunt and mother-in-law. She spoke very highly of this place. The afternoon that we went, it was very relaxed inside and our waiter was very polite. The food was great and so was the service. Can't ask for much else.

In a town overflowing with summer tourists, an outside restaurant in the middle of town immediately becomes suspect as providing lousy food at high price. But the Wild Thyme is most exceptional, offering a most delicious and varied menu. Our party consisted of a vegan, a red meat eater, a salad only and GF/lactose intolerant diner, so most ventures to... More

Enjoyed lunch here. Food was served in a timely manner, wait staff was knowledgeable about menu items. My husband had a fish special which was excellent and I had a fried shrimp sandwich which was also excellent and the sweet potato fried chips were crispy and tasty. It was a unique and tasteful place for lunch.

Good for all ages and taste buds, have been here several times. We had chicken stuffed with olives, a fantastic steak and fish special. Everyone was pleased. We unfortunately were to full for dessert. Full bar is a plus also.

I look for outdoor restaurants when traveling with my dog so I don't have to leave him in a car or hotel room. When I find a NICE restaurant that offers outside seating with pleasant ambience and good food that will seat me AND my dog I feel I hit the jackpot. I ordered spinach salad with crab cakes which...

One of the better meals we had in Highlands. Although, the restaurant was quite busy we were seated right away and waited on immediately. All of our dishes were very tasty and served within a minimal amount of time. The gazpacho and mushroom soups were delicious. I highly reccomend this restaurant and would definitely go back.

Wonderfully delicious food with very friendly service. They were able to accommodate us as walk-ins and treated as hospitably as patrons with reservations.
