Enjoyed two delightful salads for lunch ; the special for the day - Cesear with crab cakes and the spinach pecan goat cheese salad with grilled chicken . Both were delicious . I like that they offer outdoor as well as indoor seating . I recommend this restaurant for lunch when you're in the area .

Road trip to Highland & saw reviews. Both out meals were good but small portions for the price. I left hungry 😋 . The staff was friendly & very attentive. We had soup & the glass bowl was only 1/3 full, not good. We thought strange but then saw others the same.😫😫I will say the crab cakes were full of... More

This place was really great - delicious, good food. I enjoyed my salmon meal a lot! Not sure why it's marked as "Asian" but is mostly American cuisine.

Food was not that great. Not particularly tasty, just bland. The waiter was friendly, but no one else there seemed to be. There were only 2 couples sitting outside and yet it took the maitre D quite some time to seat us. She just seemed flustered that we wanted to eat there and you could almost see the wheels turning...

We were staying in Cashiers and came over the mountain to shop. We stopped for a late lunch and had a delightful meal here. The waitress was very nice and the outdoor seating was great. I had a salmon in a cream sauce over puff pastry. This was heaven on a plate. It is such a lovely town with amazing... More

Finding both delicious and dog friendly restaurants is not easy, but with Wild Thyme we found both. Our canine kids were served cold water right away on the shaded patio. My husband and I chose to split two lunch entrees which were absolutely scrumptious! The Warm Sesame Chicken Salad contained fresh crunchy sugar snap pea pods, chicken, carrots, and peppers... More

We really liked Wild Thyme for lunch on a Saturday. It was busy for lunch, but we were able to get a seat outside fairly quickly for a late lunch. The food was really good and fresh. We had a chicken salad special and a burger. I would recommend both of them. They also have a full bar and some... More
