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

Great location so gets very busy, make reservations in advance. Live music in the courtyard outside the outdoor seating area on Fri. Nights. Cute shop called potpourri next door with very reasonable prices on cute clothes. The atmosphere indoors for dinner was very romantic and the food was amazing. I had grouper and my husband had steak. Seasoned perfectly, presentation... More

We have been here multiple times. I always like a seat on the outside patio. Food is very good. We have tried many dishes and they are all great!

My husband and I discovered Wild Thyme several years ago and make a point to go every visit to Highlands! The food is so delicious and the restaurant is beautiful with both indoor and outdoor seating right in the heart of downtown. The service has always been excellent as well. Try the salmon BLT and get the cold rice as... More

We ate on the patio in the courtyard which was truly entertaining with all the dogs in town and the friendly staff taking care of the pets as well as the people. Our Lunch was good. The Swordfish sandwich probably one of the best ever and the side rice was uniquely delicious. The Greek salad chicken wrap needed to better... More

The weather was nice, so we sat out side. The atmosphere was great and our waiter was very good. I had the Rainbow trout and it was a large portion, of very tender and fresh fish. My wife had a curry dish and enjoyed it. The food is pricey, but most of the restaurants in this area are pricey. When... More

A friend who spends a couple of weeks each summer in the Highlands area recommended this restaurant off the main street of Highlands. It was a great meal. There was a mix-up on the reservation because I called earlier in the day and some of the kitchen staff took the reservation. The manager apologized profusely and seated us according to... More

Delicious food, great location on main street, wonderful outdoor patio. Ate here for lunch one day and it was very good—had the Salmon BLT sandwich. It was a bit messy to eat, but the best sandwiches always are, aren’t they? Our server was funny and playful, a great combination.

After receiving a concerned response to my June report of a disappointing experience at this restaurant, we recently returned for lunch. I am happy to report that this time the food and service were excellent. Lin voiced the restaurant's dedication to having satisfied customers and thought that our prior waiter was probably new.
