What a great restaurant in Highlands! Sat at the bar and had a great bartender who knew the specials, the regular items and all the wines. Special tempura mahi mahi sandwich, a winner! Can't complain- reasonable prices, good efficient servers and service.

Managed to snag seats at the bar during a very busy day due during the holidays. The restaurant was completely packed, but once we were seated the service was attentive and the food came out in a timely manner. I had the warm chicken salad which is stir fry served over greens. Someone in our party had the fried fish... More

Went to this restaurant not knowing anything about it. It was located in a little circle of shops on Main Street, by Kilwins, and we thought it was closed. But surprise surprise, they were not only open, but they were crowded. I'm not one to post photos of food on Facebook, but my husband and I actually took photos of... More

This is a nice little restaurant in the center of town. It was Christmas time so there were no crowds. The menu had a number of interesting choices. The food we received was very tasty and everything was very fresh. Ravioli was excellent. Fish of the day was mahi mahi and was very good. Dessert was great. Nothing to complain... More

Highlands is one of my favorite places to visit and hike the area. In a December trip we decided to try Wild Thyme after seeing the good reviews. The restaurant is easy to find as you enter Highlands and given the time of year a table was easily found for lunch. I am gluten intolerant so I was hoping for... More

The owners of the resort we were staying at suggested this restaurant, and we were so glade they did. We did not have a reservation, but we were still received with open arms by the hostess and seated promptly outside. The food was delicious, the drinks were golden and the atmosphere and wait staff could not have been better. Perfect... More

Whenever we come to the Highlands we always have lunch at Wild Thyme. We have yet to be disappointed and this visit was no different. We split a bacon cheddar burger for lunch and both head tomato basil soup which were excellent. We will be back again.
