Stayed in a European style inn nestled deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains with many upscale restaurants. Wolfgang's food was presented with a flare of presentation and speculatar favor. The menu in the Bistro and restaurant were creative and highly desirable. We went twice in four days! Service, ambiance and food were awesome. Make Reservations.

When in Highlands, don't miss this great restaurant. Not only do they have great "American" dishes they specialize in German fare with some fabulous, recognizable, selections. Come with an appetite because the portions are "filling" to say the least. Indoor seating, outdoor seating and covered seating - all of it right on Main Street, Highlands.

When I am in Highlands, Wolfgang's is my FAVORITE of the many great restaurants in this amazing little town. Everything about it from the beautiful setting to the wonderful people who work there to the truly extraordinary food and wine list is truly world class. I've tried many things from the menu and the wiener schnitzel is as good as... More

We had a delicious hummus appetizer in the bistro and rather than moving to the dining room for dinner, we stayed in the bistro because our server, Debbie, was so helpful and friendly. The food is delicious and we look forward to returning soon.

I ate there with 9 people and was able to try almost everything that hit the table! Have travelled the world and this quite possibly was the best food I have ever had! Hope to visit again!

We concluded our anniversary celebration with dinner at Wolfgang's. We were greeted with bubbles, had salad/soup and entrees that are always tremendously tasty, and then had a celebratory chocolate cake with chocolate mousse and whipped creme topping with fresh strawberries. YUM! Many thanks to Chef Wolfgang and his team for another wonderful culinary experience!

Nice atmosphere, great service, excellent food. Salads are outstanding, chops and steaks were cooked wonderfully with a list of martinis that hit the spot. Terrific wine list and desserts that leave you weak.

I have been dining there for many years and the food is as good now as it was way back when! Great presentation, taste, seasoning and the quality of the ingredients was excellent. I would recommend Wolfgang's over any restaurant in Highlands.

I spent several days in the charming town of Highlands in the mountains of NC last week. In a resort town with many wonderful restaurants Wolfgang's Restaurant and Wine Bistro stood out as the best. The food is first rate. I especially enjoyed the braised short ribs with collard greens and mashed potatoes, and the Wiener Schnitzel transported me back... More
