This place has a wonderful menu with very creative entrees and specials, and a lovely patio for dining (well shaded). I enjoyed their beet salad with goat cheese and arugula and their Halibut, which was exceptional. Lovely place to enjoy terrific food in an outdoor setting in downtown Highlands.

We thought the food was very good to excellent on some dishes. Overall it was a great place to have lunch or dinner! Expect to pay a little more than average for each dish. Beer and wine selection were excellent.
