We had reservation for 8pm, but live music earlier in the evening set all tables behind... we ended up waiting about 45 minutes for our table. That being said, I had quite possibly the most perfectly prepared trout in my experience. The entire meal was very good and it was nice to be able to sit outside with our pup.... More

My husband and I decided to try this very busy spot for lunch. From all the activity, we expected a wait; but we were seated inside within five minutes. Service was friendly and efficient from the moment we walked in the door. Our lunch arrived very quickly. My husband thought his salmon BLT and chilled rice salad were wonderful. I... More

Wild Thyme moved from a small and somewhat out of the way location to Main Street about two years ago, and it seems to have become one of the most popular restaurants in Highlands. We have been eating at Wild Thyme for several years, and we went there this year on our first night in Highlands. Both of us ordered... More

My two ladies and I stopped by Wild Thyme for lunch on a beautiful sunny day in the mountain top town of Highlands, NC. The place was packed, and for good reason. I got brave and tried the Grilled Vegetarian Black Bean Burger (I'm not a vegetarian). It was marvelous -- I love black beans and I love burgers, a... More

We stumbled upon this little gem while shopping. It was about 5:00 on a busy Friday afternoon, and we inquired if we might be able to get a reservation for 7:00. The young man and youn woman who helped us were very pleasant and accommodating. While they didn't have anything available on the outdoor patio, they graciously reserved a spot... More

We ate here with friends for lunch. There aren't very many lunch places in Highlands so it was crowded. The menu was varied. Everyone in the group liked what they ordered. We got plenty to eat. Service was good. We will eat here at our next trip stop Highlands.

Best crab cakes that I have ever eaten. Great service and nice atmosphere. Sat outside and enjoyed the cool, mountain air

It would be wonderful for this restaurant to change the menu line-up just a bit. One suggestion....The bread under the crab cakes is too chewy. The ingredients drop all over because the base is not user friendly. I have patronized this restaurant for about ten years and only go when house guests insist. How about a true special using local... More

This restaurant is a must do while you are visiting Highlands. The menu is not extensive, but is varied to include seafood, mountain trout, pasta, beef, chicken and pork. The lentil mushroom soup was absolutely delicious and the trout was the best ever. Our party also had the pork chop and chicken entrees. The meals were prepared in a reasonable... More
