A fun spot to meet friend

This a fun place with decent food from a large menu. Good selection of beers and their Patron Margarita is a favorite with my friends. A great place to sit outside with friends in the too short WI summer.

My wife and I had dinner on a Wednesday night with another couple. We arrived around 6:45 p.m. and though it was crowded we still had a choice of immediate seating either inside or out. We sat inside at a large comfortable booth. Chips and salsa were brought quickly. They have a nice selection of drinks, I chose the regular... More

I don't get to come here often, but when I do, the food is always great. They have a separate gluten free menu. Our food always comes out in a reasonable amount of time, and the staff are friendly and attentive.

Thursday can be busy, what with trivia and all, but that's ok! Saddle up to the bar or grab a table and just relax. The burgers and sandwiches are good. The Mexican fair is surprisingly delightful as well. I really liked the corn cakes. They were sweet with a good medley of pico, avocado and a chipotle sauce. The cigar... More

Very nice place. Great menu. Could very well be the best restaurant in the Mequon area. Never have had bad service and the outside dining is nice.

The diversity of the menu assures there is something for everyone in the family. My wife and I were not disappointed in our meals. Be sure and ask about the heat of the spices when you order to assure you will enjoy your meal. My wife ordered Shrimp Alfredo only to discover the shrimp were prepared different from the normal...

This is a good place to go for Mexican Food. The parking lot can look full but that doesn't necessarily mean that you will have to wait to be seated. We've been there twice and it was busy both times. We were seated right away. The service was rather slow but we took into consideration that they were very busy.... More

With a menu that has something for everyone in the family (burgers, salads, Mexican, kid menu), Highland House is a favorite in the area. Lively Caribbean decor with nice outdoor dining areas and fireplaces. Good tap beer selection and fun cocktails as well (my Bloody Mary was garnished with some sort of string cheese - very Wisconsin). The Mahi Mahi... More

After driving past this restaurant multiple times, I did not realize it was a Mexican restaurant when we stopped and agree that I was confused by the theme inside compared to the logo and name outside. BUT...that didn't matter. The variety of food, from Mexican to traditional burgers, chicken, etc. was vast. Everyone ordered something different in our group and... More
