My fiance and I arrived to the Highlands late on a weeknight and were very hungry. Even though the Ugly Dog was closing, they invited us in for a drink and some appetizers! We are beyond grateful for their friendliness, and the appetizers were very tasty! The decor at this bar is very fun and the staff is fantastic. We'll definitely go back the next time we're in the Highlands!

I travelled to Highlands for the Resort Experience (Old Edwards Inn); after a few days I had the urge for something a little more down to earth - this is the spot! I wanted a relaxed atmosphere to watch the Masters Golf Tournament. I knew after a few beers and an appetizer this was the spot for me - local folks, good food and good service. I'll definitely hit the Ugly Dog again during my next visit to Highlands.

Great food, fun atmosphere, very friendly staff - a joy to visit & we do as often as we can! They have an array of vegetarian & carnivorous selections along with a fully stocked bar.

Service was horrible. Food was ok, a lot of it was cold and seemed like it had been sitting out for a while. Not sure if we will go back

This is a unique place that has a real "pub" feel. The food was very good, and how can you go wrong with your favorite beer, and I'm sure they have your favorite too. hey have live entertainment several ights, and one night they even have storytelling. We weren't there for that, but I am looking forward to the time when we can go be a part of it.
