The regular dinner menu was served on Valentine's Day but there was plenty to choose from, along with some tempting specials. We were seated at a booth (which was bumped into a few times by the wait staff and annoying) and the atmosphere was just...More

Excellent food. Great steak with an interesting twist with onion rings and pimento cheese. Little expensive but worth the cost.

Nice lunch. Salad was great but the crab cakes were a bit of a disappointment. Everyone raved about them so that's what I got, but they were just ok- nothing special. Service was perfect, atmosphere great including lots of artwork that I loved.

I can't say enough good things about the crab cakes. I would love to have the recipe for myself. I had 2 of them on a spinach salad.

Highlands is full of creative chefs offering great food, so the competition is high and the bar raised. Given that fact, when I compare Wild Thyme to its competition across the street at Cypress, they are just slightly behind. But not by much. My wife...More
