Two different views on the venue. We ordered the bacon wrapped, goat cheese stuffed dates and Mrs. T liked them bunches, but I thought the bacon was too thick and overwhelmed the dates. Just me. We split the burger and it was great as were the fries. Not on the main tourist pathway which was nice. They also need one... More

Really enjoyed our 3 night stay. The location was great... just a short walk down the walkway to the beach. Enjoyed the included breakfast. The bacon was unbelievable. The only reason cant give 5 stars is the bed. Simply put ..a new mattress is needed and nicer bed and bath linens would have been nice. For the price, we were... More

We love going to Highlands House for happy hour! Most nights there is live music. The beer and wine selection is good. The food is always amazing and the service is great. There are small tables for two as well as large tables for families. This is a tucked away gem definitely worth going to!

Friends recently had a wedding here. This is a bed & breakfast type place. The rooms are upstairs and the downstairs is a restaurant and bar. It has its own parking and very, very short walk, private access to the beach. The beach is BEAUTIFUL here! The wedding was well staffed, well organized and the staff was friendly. The food... More

I wanted to like you guys but word of advice to the people who run this place, please do not book weddings and book regular guests at the same time. The common guest area was turned into a wedding photo shoot, that was dumb. All guests should have access to this area. We left a day early because we were... More

Highlands House is in a wonderful location. It's just off the beach by a semi private boardwalk. The room was convenient with a wonderful veranda. The rest is not so good.The room was small and very cold at night. The bathroom was small and somewhat antiquated. Don't bother eating at the restaurant as there was something poor in every meal.

I've recommended this place to all of my friends...we stayed in a holiday inn express in Pensacola last night for the same price and wow....the two didn't even compare.
