Great place for lunch or dinner

Lump crab meat appetizer is absolutely a must have! Dining available indoors or out. Meals were fabulous and cake was moist and tasty.

The crab and corn chowder appetizer was plate sopping good. The crab cakes were yummy and the caramel cake was worth a sugar coma.

Between lunch and dinner service we tried to take a break from shopping to have something cool to drink. We were told at 4:20 PM that they don't start serving until 5PM. We were able to get something to drink and find a table in the same complex and within 5 minutes they were seating others at the same tables... More

I'm sorry you didn't get a drink, I looked over the tape of that afternoon and it was raining so the outside was not opened. Our dining room is closed from 4:00 - 5:30 for cleaning, our bar is opened during all business hours for drinks and offers a small appetizer menu. I did notice on the tape that it... More

Centrally located and surrounded by quaint shops. Our experience on a quiet night was delightful due to the delicious food and excellent service. Yummy desserts!

After spending 5 days in Highlands, perhaps the most lovely, dog-friendly town we've ever been to, we made the unfortunate decision of having lunch at Wild Thyme Gourmet with our 2 miniature, short hair dachshunds. We were seated at an outside table where we noticed a number of other dogs seated at tables as well. Since our little dogs (each... More

Ok, apart from your personal attack and stretching of the truth completely, we spent over $2000 on new cushions for our customers this year to be more comfortable, not for dogs to sit on and leave hair behind among other things, people walk by and see dogs on the cushions and think that we are not clean. My experience is... More

Wild Thyme is so much fun to have lunch either inside or outside al fresco dining. The homemade white bean soup and chicken sandwich with pesto were delicious! Plus they serve champagne by the glass for a lovely lunch! Great menu with great ambiance and service! A must if you are a visitor! Pets are allowed the outside dining.

I didn't have high expectations for this place but people kept recommending it over the time we were in Highlands. Glad I listened!! The food was so fresh and fabulous and the service was great. The atmosphere was delightful as well considering it is tucked back in a courtyard shopping area. The crab cakes truly are a fresh and not... More

We enjoyed this place so much the last time we were in Highlands that we returned this time instead of trying somewhere new. And, it was just as good. Great service. Very good food. Would have rather eaten outdoors, but so would everyone else it seems. If you want to sit outdoors I suggest you get there early. My wife... More

We had an incredible lunch at Wild Thyme. The fried shrimp sandwich and the salmon blt were perfect choices. When you go, save room for dessert! The wait staff was very attentive without being pesky. The outdoor area is dog friendly and provides plenty of room between tables for a dog.
