This restaurant has been in our area for many years. They recently moved to a new location on Main Street. The food is always fresh, however, they need to change the menu more often. We don't eat out a lot and so we tend to go where we know it will be good. But the same menu year after year... More

Awesome food for an after spa experience at the OEI. Went here after spa and church for Christmas dinner. The service was great and the steak was perfectly cooked.

My husband and I decided to try this after reading other reviews and were happy to join in saying how wonderful the food was and how courteous the staff was too. Wild Thyme had a variety of cocktails and wine to choose from along with a great choice of appetizers and entrees. Food was excellent and we had a hard... More

Loved this little gem! Went on New Yrs Eve and there was a crowd but we got seated in ten minutes. Service was quick and pleasant. Food REALLY good, especially the mushroom soup. My husband had a sesame chicken salad he said was one of the best salads he'd ever had. I had the special chicken avocado wrap, big and... More

One our favorite and mandatory dining stops whenever we are in Highlands. The food, from appetizers to entres to desserts,are always superb. The staff is always extremely courteous from the generalmanager, the exceptional receptionist, and the rest of the staff. Many members of this staff are long timers, which says a lot about the owners and the manager, and as... More

Small, quiet restaurant with very good food and great nighly specials. Full bar and seating area and food area for dining in the bar (great for couples). I can not name y special dish, too many of them at this restaurant. Go you will have a good time and food. That's why it is named wild thyme.

Recommended to us by a local shopkeeper, we had a wonderful lunch with prompt service. Food was hot and fresh and very good service throughout. Several things on the menu were appetizing, but we each decided on the panko crusted flounder on a most excellent fresh baguette. Would definitely return on our next visit to Highlands.

Upon arrival we were greeted by what I believe was the owner. He was very pleasant and welcoming. However, once the waiter arrived, he seemed to be a bit distracted. We had a large group sitting across from us and they were quite loud. The place is very open so there was not a way to dampen their enthusiastic noise.... More

Wild Thyme can always be counted on for a very enjoyable evening. We were part of a large group on a weekend night. You could sense we were stretching the capability of the wait staff. This place is not set up to easily handle large groups. There were 18 in our party and there is no private room to use.... More
