It was okay. Wasn't too crowded for the Packer game so that was a plus. Our waiter was very good, but the food was just average. Don't get their desserts. They tasted like they had freezer burn.

I had a ground beef burrito, two others had a chicken tortilla and all were very good. The place was modestly busy, but a food came quite quickly. They welcome you with a basket of chips and salsa, no charge and has a very broad menu from burgrers, mexican steaks but small offerings on seafood.

Haven't been here in awhile and the food is still great and the margaritas were very good. Went for an early dinner and the service was excellent and friendly. Hope I don't wait so long to go back. Coconut Shrimp was to die for.

I have been to the Highland House a number of times. The food is always good, as is the service. The Los Cabos chicken is awsome!

My wife order the salmon and I ordered steak. The salmon was excellent! The steak lacked flavor and was not a very good cut of meat however too be fair the steak was inexpensive and this is not a supper club. So yes I would definitely go back just not for a steak.

No, we aren't a supper club, but that is no excuse for us not to put out consistently quality entrees. We are... More

We've been to the Highland House many times over the years. It was kid friendly when our children were young. Now we are bringing our grandchildren! The food is good, service is pleasant and we always have a good time.

The gentlemen ordered separate dishes..one tacos and the other enchiladas...both were disappointed..Would go again... More

I visited the Home gland House with three friends. The restaurant was a happy place with people talking all over the rooms, there was outside seating but we chose a booth inside. The tables were clean and spacious. We ordered drinks first and our waitress brought us some fresh hot chips and salsa, both were delicious,,,the jalapeño ranch dip wasn't... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us. It sounds like you had a kind of mixed bag experience with us. While I'm pleased that members of your party enjoyed the Friday Fish Fry, I'm sorry to hear that you didn't care for our Jalapeno Ranch chip dip or the Fish Tacos, since they are both usually guest favorites!...
