“Annual favorite for dinner”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

The move to this new location added the enjoyment of a full bar. This restaurant is consistently excellent while keeping "old" favorites on the menu as well as adding new ones. The flavors are innovative, treating each diner to a superb dining experience. The staff are very knowledgeable and courteous. Reservations are recommended since the locals also love this restaurant. On the weekends there just may be live music in the square and tables are available outside.

“Great restaurant in the center of Main Street”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

In my Top 3 favorites in Highlands dining. Went there for dinner and had no complaints. Fish was fresh and cooked to perfection. Appetizers and salads were equally perfect. Prices were fair and service was fantastic. Outside seating is especially nice on the weekends when they have a band playing in the square.

“Fantastic food all around from the appetizers through the main course!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We have been coming to Highlands for 4 years and have eaten at many of the restaurants. Wild Thyme was a total surprise. The owner's son was our waiter and was absolutely fantastic. The crab phyllo dough & fried green tomato appetizers were delicious. The cucumber soup refreshing and the Panéed chicken delectable. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Just average”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Food wasn't great. My halibut was very bland and was served with plain white rice. It wasn't worth what we paid.

“5 Star Chef in the NC Mountains!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

My family has been dining in Highlands NC for 24 years...and the new location of Wild Thyme Restaurant on Main St confirmed they are a TRUE 5-star tasting! The entire 4 course meal was off the charts good. Even my daughters who can be picky eaters loved the menu choices.

Highly recommend!
