There is something for everyone at Highland House! Their food is amazing, and the portion sizes are great. Unlimited chips and salsa (especially their ranch mixture) is to die for. Taco Tuesdays are cheap and they fill you up. I would recommend this place to anyone!

My husband and I took my Mom here for a fish fry. I had cod, my Mom had perch and my husband had tacos. Everything was great - food and service. The Cole slaw was the best I ever had. We also ordered tootsie rolls as an appetizer. We did not order alcoholic drinks - too expensive. The restaurant is... More

Stopped in on a Saturday night. The restaurant was busy, wait for a table was estimated to be 40 minutes, all seats at the bar were taken. We almost left, but room became available at the bar and we settled in with margaritas, chips and salsa. The bartenders were friendly and attentive. We ended up bailing on the table and... More

My wife & I received a gift card and tried going here on a Saturday night at 6pm. We hadn't been here in many years and have always been amazed at how popular it was, so a 45 min. wait time did not surprise us. The restaurant is spread out with many different rooms which can make socializing a little... More

Love Taco Tuesdays! $2.00 per taco and it is delicious. can have a very good meal plate for 6 or 7 dollars. Also, we are in our 70's but we blend in with all ages from very young (children) to 30 - 60 age group. A fun place to go!

Decent food. Fun place. Not sure I would say they are fantastic but good service. The drinks were probably the best part of the visit!

My family has been coming here for years. On my last visit, I ordered the cheesy steak burrito with no guacamole or refried beans. It consisted of a large burrito filled with fajita steak, onion, peppers, and spicy jalapeno cream cheese, dripping with flavorful chilly con queso. The burrito was large enough that I was able to bring half of... More

Enjoyed an excellent fish fry the last 2 Fridays and my husband wants to go back next Friday too. DELICIOUS (we had the Cod). They also have the most delicious chips and salsa. There is something for everyone on their menu. Going on a Friday night we expected to wait, but we were seated right away.
