“Great friendly place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

The high point is a great place to go for a good dinner or to stop by for a cold beer. We stop and eat while we are in town for work It's a local restaurant, but they make you feel part of the crowd when your there. I've had anything from a big dinner to a burger and fries and everything is good.

“Great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2014 via mobile

We were killing time driving around waiting for our 4:00 check in at a local hotel and decided to stop for some lunch and were soon glad we did! I had the Balboa, which was a hot roast beef and Swiss with garlic and butter on a kaiser roll....soo good I was sad it was gone! My husband got the Chrissie special, a cheese steak with bacon, pepperoni and mushrooms...again, it was superb! You could tell it was a nice, local place with a good local following. Great service and if we are ever In the area again, I know where we will be going!

“Bar food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

Hi point is one of those places people rave about. The portions are huge, the food is decent in a fried and covered in sauce way, the starter salad is actually very good and the bar is usually hopping. I don't like seafood but people talk about the bisque like it's manna from heaven. It's a little noisy at times but it's a bar. Wait staff are great, bartenders remember your name and the sandwiches are really good.

“Nothin' but Bisque Baby!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

If you can only get one thing at this place get the Lobster Bisque. It is rich, but not too rich. It is creamy, but not too creamy. If you are on a diet, go run or walk a couple of miles up and down the White Horse Pike, then come back for the Bisque. Rest of the menu is okay, but the Bisque is a must!

“Great place for good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

We had the Thursday special of prime rib, pub fries, and drink for $12. We were surprised by the quality and seasoning. It was trivia night and the place was bustling. Everyone was friendly and the tvs were tuned to various sports- hockey, baseball, and basketball. A very lively place with an extensive menu and daily specials.
