Great Food - Fun Atmosphere

We always have a great time when we go to the Highland house, this is more of a family friendly restaurant. Great service, and drink specials are always interesting, or try their Mojito! I usually order Mexican and my husband goes for burgers, both are great!

The Highland House has been a favorite place to get dinner and drinks any night of the week. The staff are incredibly helpful when it comes to dietary restriction (vegan here) and making drink selections. The events they host are always fun and well managed. I hope more people will visit and have as much fun as I do here.

We stopped here for a bite after coming back from a Packers game in Green Bay. After a long day, we were not that hungry, so we settled for some drinks, a salad and some soup. The food was well prepared, but the servers did not seem to be on top of things. We sat for a while and weren't... More

Always a staff favorite for business lunches. Great Mexican, pastas, burgers and sandwiches. Their chips and salsa and jalepeno ranch is amazing. Feels like vacation

One of the best testimonials for a good place is the size of the crowd! On a busy Friday evening, the parking lot was full, as we pulled up to Highland House with a 40-passenger bus of hungry seniors, running short on time to attend a Christmas concert at Concordia College, Mequon. Servers were expecting us, and wasted no time... More

One of the family favorites. Fun atmosphere and always friendly service. If you like margaritas, I recommend the Hot&Cold. For an appetizer, I like the Chinese Tootsie Rolls. I often go for the chicken chimichanga. Also a Great selection of burgers if that's your mood. Just make sure you don't fill up on the free chips and salsa before your... More

I come here quite often and have always had decent service and food. Last weekend wasn't the case. I would have to give failing marks to our server Erin C. and whoever at the bar was handling our drink order. We came here to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday! What a let down. Besides Erin C. seeming like she did... More

The menu is varied and I have enjoyed most of it. The service is friendly and attentive, but not too much! Great Margaritas and selection of beers. Popular gathering place for friends after movie, game etc...

It was good food but my order was not exactly what I expected. They did make a mistake, which they immediately fixed for me. I enjoy going here to kick back with my friends and have a drink with dinner. I would recommend it but not the tacos asada.
