Love meeting here for drinks, appetizers and great conversation. Highland never disappoints! The marriage of flavors in their foods to the mixologist who creates your drink. Yoir visit to Birmingham is nit complete without a visit here.

I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner here. The Marinated Crab Claws & Ginger Sauce were delightful. I asked my server, Dawson, to pretty much make the menu decisions for me and he did an excellent job. This restaurant is one of Frank Stitt’s group of restaurants (a James Beard Foundation recognized chef). Menu is creative with some unexpected twists.

Excellent restaurant in a cosy atmosphere. Excellent food with surprising mix of meat and vegetables. Excellent desert. I have never been in a restaurant with so many waiters, the number is amazing, more than 20. They serve cool water purified on site,without ice!

Service and ambience was five star. Waiter was great and knowledgeable and friendly too. Menu was interesting. Food a disappointment based on the reputation and great service. Nothing tasted special or interesting. We had 4 appetizers, 4 entres and 4 desserts. All were okay but just okay. Quality was totally there but someone forgot to taste the food. Even the... More

Highlands Bar and Grill is a Birmingham gem. It is Southern Hospitality at its best. The service is impeccable. And the menu which changes daily always offers a slew of delicious options. Frank Stitt brings in fresh vegetables from local farmers. And the fish dishes are just divine. One of our favorite places in Birmingham.

Highlands Bar & Grill is one of my favorite places to eat, hands down. Their menu is always exciting and features the best the south can offer! There isn't a better place to eat in Birmingham, period!

My wife and I have always thought that Highlands was Birmingham's best restaurant, and our latest visit confirmed that feeling. We stopped by last week to try the special Restaurant Week menu. My wife had the salad as her first course and the trout as her main, while I started with the chilled cucumber soup and had the hangar steak... More
