We went here for lunch and it was perfect, shared food here with other people in our party and loved each thing we had, also enjoyed the dessert. Next time hoping the weather is warmer so we can sit outside.

By far one of the best pieces of fish I've ever had- Mountain trout. My wife loved hers as well. Great service!

We tried the crab cake sandwich and the salmon BLT. The salmon was better than the crab cake. The crab was good I just felt it needed a remoulade with something to give it that extra something special. We would come back here for sure. The inside was very cute and the service outstanding.

Walked in thinking it was local type bar, the service and food was GREAT and best flakey fried green tomatoes and really fresh scallops, along with strip bass. We drove 5 hr thinking we was in no man land, but found a paradise of gourmet foods. My hat off to our server Yanzi.

Set back in a pedestrian cul-de-sac, this restaurant is very pleasant. Good bar, nice menu, excellent service. For an informal meal, a fine choice.

This is a good location right on Main Street. Our problem was that it was very hot in the restaurant and we were seated all the way in the back. We had made our reservation well in advance and had requested to sit on the patio. My husband's dish was very good but I ordered one of the chicken dishes... More

I'm sorry your dinning experience was not as good as it should have been. I don't know why you weren't allowed to sit outside. We usually leave it to the discretion of the customer at this time of year due to weather conditions. We don't always recommend the outdoor seating but I don't recall ever telling anyone no so it...

Food has been excellent each time we have bee there and our most recent trip was no exceptin however the service was just a little slow particularly toward the end. Enjoyed outside dining this time and that may have been the difference.

Wild Thyme is my favorite restaurant in Highlands. Great service, diverse menu & complete wine list. We all split a cod fritters appetizer which is great alternative to calamari. For dinner, I had salmon. Great!! And for our birthday dessert, I had coconut cake. The other had lemon cake. It was a wonderful evening!
