Great service and food was delicious and filling. Ask for a table away from the main entrance once inside that is out of the constant flow of traffic from guests and wait staff.

Great location on Main st. in Highlands. Love it when the Chef/Owner takes the time to come out of the kitchen and mingle. The dinner menu selections are varied and interesting, don't miss this wonderful dining experience.

We had a group of 6 for a birthday dinner. The food was fantastic. Great crab cakes. Wine list is superb and the service was outstanding. Apple Strudel for dessert! They did not flinch when we asked for separate checks.

My husband and I dined here for the first time tonight. I asked several people in town where to get the best trout. I was told by 3 people to go to Wolfgang's.

Wolfgang's is located on Main Street. Diners can eat inside or out and then food is first rate. I especially like the small bite choices (lamb chops, soups, Caesar salad, escargot, flat breads and much more!) Dinner menu always offers specials. Try the short ribs! Fresh fish available daily. Owner and his wife are on the premises and visit tables.... More
