This is one of our favorite places to dine in Highlands. Wild Thyme has a very good wine list and the food is always fantastic. The fresh fish specials are always prepared perfectly and if you are in town for lunch be sure to try the Crispy Fried Shrimp Sandwich. It is fabulous.

As a local I've visited Wild Thyme Gourmet several times. The Black Bean Burger is my favorite. On a recent visit the check included a $3.50 fee just to split a BB Burger. I noticed the fee and asked for a waiver but the manager declined. As a regular and local client, I'll avoid Wild Thyme in the future. The... More

Great food, but the menu has changed substantially in many years. Guess I have a short attention span

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
