I actually took my entire staff 90% of them under the age of 30...and only a small handful having ever experienced Highlands. It was an incredible night, impeccable service, outstanding food and as always perfect ambiance. If you are visiting Birmingham, put it on your list no matter what you are here for, business or pleasure!

Thank you, Trip Advisor, for telling us about this place. We started with the grits and could have stopped there and been happy. Nope, we went on to the grouper and the veal, and the banana pudding. What a fabulous meal. We will be back!

We had business associates in town from Maryland and opted for dinner at Highlands. This restaurant never fails to impress, from the impeccable service, wonderful location in Five Points South, focused menu and excellent wine list to the best fried oysters on the planet. I have taken friends from all over the US to this establishment and they have unanimously... More
