Wolfgang's provided us with a wonderful evening - great food, great service. We later stumbled on the other building and dining areas as we walked to the restroom.

“Highlands Getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

My girlfriend and I checked into the Old Edwards Inn and then hit Main Street for some shopping. When driving in, we saw this quaint patio with beautiful landscaping so we thought we'd walk down there and check out the menu. We decided to eat a late lunch there, and we were glad we did. The food and outdoor atmosphere were delightful. We were immediately able to downshift from the faster pace of Atlanta to the relaxed air about Highlands. Loved sitting outside and watching the people stroll by. I'll be going back with my husband in a couple months and will repeat this fun time, Wolfgang's and all.

“Fantastic Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

My lovely bride and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at Wolfgang's and had a wonderful experience. The professional staff was incredible. Food was delicious, wine selection was one of the best. The wine manager, Annelize, knows her stuff and makes sure your selection meets your expectation. Make sure to invite both Annelize and Wolfgang for a glass. That was truly the highlight of our night. When in Highlands make this a must reservation.

“Only In A Small Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

February 1995; we were staying at an inn in Highlands as our summer cottage was under construction when electricity was lost all over town. Wolfgang managed to keep his kitchen operating so we ordered dinner to go. Mindy fixed us up with china plates and real flatware and very tasty hot food. We took it all back to the inn, no problem!
In all the years since we have been loyal diners. Now we enjoy the small plates and rolls and wine. Last evening waiter Justin was friendly, accommodating and efficient. Mindy said hello. The bistro filled and we do believe a good time and good food was had by all.

Great German food and the Bananas Foster is sublime! Wolfgang and his wife are wonderful hosts and their staff is attentive.
