“Fun times with fantastic food”

While in Highlands you need to make sure you put Wolfgang's on your list of restaurants. The menu is diversified so that everyone can find something that will appeal to their taste. I highly recommend the fish as well as any of the specials. If you want something light you should enjoy the Wine Bar as you can get small plates and the atmosphere is spectacular. Wolfgang and Mindy make everyone feel special and Annelize is amazing with any wine selection. I am a local and have been going to Wolfgang's for years and have never been disappointed in a meal.

“Great Schnitzel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

Discovered a wonderful surprise in Highlands, NC while visiting friends. Great schnitzel, martinis and strudel for dessert. Couldn't ask for a better dining experience. Attentive service and a expansive menu make Wolfgang's a must visit restaurant while in the mountains.

“Exceptional Cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

We enjoyed an outstanding evening spent on the terrace enjoying one of the finest meals I have ever had. We started with the caprese and an order of pecan crusted shrimp, my favorites. Followed by the worlds best shrimp and lobster bisque. I had the Veal Medallions Wolfgang which was an incredible taste treat topped with crawfish. My partner raved about the beef short ribs...they fell off the bone.
For desert we shared the Strawberries Romanoff, recommended by our server. You must try it, to believe it.
A six star restaurant!!!!!

While in Highlands, took family to dinner at Wolfgang's. Everyone had something different, and it was all great. Warm surroundings and helpful wine steward and waitress. Worth a visit!
