“Great Food,Friends over came the slow service”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

Went with a group of friends four of us. Ordered cocktails on recommendations from the server,appetizers and our meal.We ordered all at once being as it took forever for them to come to our table.The drinks were horrible,waved down another server after waiting for ours to never show up. Ours came by she took the original drinks and went to get new ones.We didn't get our drinks til our dinner arrived,thank goodness we had water. Ordered the veal medallions with crawfish and lobster sauce on top. Absolute awesome tender and tasty.Will order this again!

“Great Food!”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

This is not our first visit to Wolfgangs. The food and service were excellent. Every dish we tried was great and the staff was very friendly. I would not hesitate to recommend this place. Hands down, it is one of the best in Highlands.

“Fun Evening with Good Friends and Good Food”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

The crab cake on Lobster Cream sauce with pecan crusted shrimp is delicious. As a northerner, this is the only place I will eat grits. They are creamy and delicious, not at all like grits I had eaten previously. Others in our group enjoyed the Bavarian sampler which is a large portion of German wursts and schnitzel with red cabbage, sauerkraut and potato salad. This time we ate indoors although on other visits we have enjoyed the outdoor pavilion area. The food is well prepared and they have a nice wine list.

“A Wonderful Getaway!”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

I had the opportunity to dine at Woldgang's recently and the food was absolutely delicious! I ordered the Ceaser Salad, and it was wonderful. The veal dish from Wolfgang personally was excellent and I recommend it highly...plenty of good food! Good wine and the service was great! I would recommend it to anyone.

“OMG Absolutely Perfect!!!”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

My husband and I have been coming to Highlands for many years and tonight was our first visit to Wolfgang's. It was absolutely perfect!! We sat in the Pavilion area of the restaurant which was so beautiful and the food was so delicious!!! I had the fig appetizer and the snapper special with a Cabernet reduction sauce was out of this world!! The chef came over to visit with us as we were paying our bill and the service in general was outstanding!! Will be going back on our next visit to Highlands!!!
