We met with family and friends for breakfast in this cute and friendly breakfast neighborhood spot. All five of us had terrific breakfasts - very unique and tasty, using very familiar foods. Everyone raved, and those who were new said they would come back. Our hosts are regulars, and were pleased we all enjoyed it. Staff was friendly and accomodating.

Three college friends(graduated over 30 years ago) met to catch and up and have a nice dinner and Highland Grill was the perfect place. We shared our delicious entrees of meatloaf, salmon and Kale & quinoa salad. Yum, the food was awesome. We were treated to great service by Brittany. Definitely going back to try the breakfast items.

Highland Grill has changed their menu, taking off many old favorites in favor of more "healthy" items, such as the kale salad I ordered last night. "Healthy." There was a much blue cheese as kale, and it was drowning--drowning--in a heavy fatty dressing. It was too rich to even eat. This kind of "health-washing" adds to our obesity epic, turning... More

We've been eating at the Highland Grill for quite some time. They have recently remodeled the interior, which has a nice local feel. Unfortunately they also remodeled the menu. They dropped their BLT which was alway good. My husband always gets the Jack Cakes which he's always liked. They last time we were there, they were half the size of... More

Came here for breakfast on a week day. It was ok. Nothing great. Oatmeal was $6.95 and nothing special. I asked for skim milk and was informed that they were out. Service was pleasant. Other breakfast options were in the $7-12 range. Not a particularly large or exciting menu, and prices on the high end. I would not go a... More

The menu here is entirely new. I came back in part due to a TripAdvisor review that lauded the melted cheese sandwich. That review was right on. Also, a side order of cottage cheese was unlike any cottage cheese I've ever tasted -- startling good.

We went to the Highland Grill twice in the last month for breakfast. The menu has very interesting with delicious items. I had a breakfast "bowl." The poached egg was perfectly done. I like my eggs poached "hard" and it was perfect. The atmosphere of the restaurant is causal and also very interesting.

Interesting menu with creative dishes: oatmeal pancakes or stuffed French toast with pure maple syrup. We also had stalwarts like eggs Benedict which were well-executed (but the muffins could use a darker toasting - so order it that way if it is your preference). Finally, the best is the fresh squeezed orange juice! Order a glass of ice if you... More

The kind of place where the eggs all come from happy chickens who gave them up willingly. Simple and interesting decor. Attentive service. Menu includes updated standards. I had the smoked salmon stack with avocado. Nice! Portion was more than I needed for one meal, but not enough to take some home for a second meal. So I ate the... More

We had not been here in awhile. The Thai Chicken was very good. The cheese curd, cheese burger and grilled cheese were delicious as well. Give it a try!
