Good food, great margaritas and a friendly atmosphere. Sitting in the bar you can watch sports on multiple TV's.

I absolutely LOVE their jalapeño ranch dip! I could eat it on everything! I have always had good food there and staff is always great. I also like that Highland House supports the community, especially the Chinooks Wooden Bat Baseball Team.

A decent spot for casual dinner or lunch. Never quite know what the crowd will be; lots of families with kids sometimes and more mature local crowd at other times. Wide variety of food on the menu, so you should find something that you like. Food is decent-not outstanding, but typical of what you'd find in a moderately priced, family... More

Highland House in Mequon, WI is a regular lunch spot for local business regulars and Concordia college students and staff. I stopped in for an early lunch with my other half and son. The hostess escorted us to the tables near the enormously beautiful fire place. What a terrific atmosphere. We were early but the place started to fill up... More

I am not sure why we had to wait for a table...I was thinking if this place was so busy it should be delish...very disappointed. Took forever for our waiter to get to our table then another 10 minutes to get our drinks and then he ran off and did not take our order so we had to wait AGAIN!!!!... More

OK I thought this was a seafood place because of the big sail fish logo on the sign. Also I drive by this place all the time and it is usually packed with cars in the parking area which is always a good sign. Turns out that this a popular South of the Border style eatery with not very much... More

I am sorry that your recent trip to the Highland House was not up to snuff. Please accept my sincere apologies. I hope that you would give us another try! The sailfish can be a bit deceiving, as we really are a blend of Mexican, American, and Caribbean. I would invite you to try our Ginger Salmon, or maybe the... More

We've eaten at the restaurant many, many times. It has a cheerful Mexican-themed atmosphere. The food is typical of Tex-Mex restaurants but it does offer a greater variety of non-Mexican foods than usual. There are always good seafood choices, too. I think the pork dishes are some of the best choices on the menu. There is always a great selection... More

I've been to the Highland House a few times for appetizers but my wife and I decided to stop in for dinner. The service was fast and friendly and the food was also good. I tried the tilapia and my wife had the coconut which were both flavorful and well-done. The servings were large enough to have leftovers. Prices were... More
