This was recommended by our hotel for dinner and we weren't disappointed. From outside we were a little dubious as looks like a sports bar but once inside opens up to a spacious and stylish restaurant. It was busy and had a very pleasant buzz about it. Our server was Kelly who I have to say made the evening. She... More

We ate lunch and dinner here. Lunch was Wild Mushroom soup. Excellent. Had the same waitress for dinner (Diane) and really enjoyed her. Also the owner came out to check on our dinner. I had the fresh mountain trout with polenta to die for and sautéed vegetables. Husband had lamb chops also excellent. Would go back again.

Love Highlands, NC and this restaurant was simply fabulous. We ate outside - wonderful atmosphere. I ordered the locally caught Trout. Very generous portions. The desert was fabulous. Nothing but high high praise for this restaurant. One of the best meals I've had in years.

Stopped in on a day trip to see friends. I had the chicken wrap with goat cheese, kalamata olives, and artichoke spread (good) and my wife had the grilled salmon on a baquette (excellent)! The sweet potatoe chips were excellent. Staff was attentive and nice.

We stopped in Wild Thyme yesterday for lunch after receiving a recommendation from a friend and we were pleasantly impressed with the entire experience! While the outside seating was full, we were seated immediately inside and our waitress was there shortly after being seated. The food choices were great and everything that was ordered was fantastic!! Loved the experience!

Found this place tucked into a corner. What a find! Lunch was really delicious. There was a good selection. My daughter enjoyed the pecan crusted fried chicken sandwich. My husband had a great steak sandwich. My chicken wrap was so good. We look forward to eating here again in the future.

Driving thru Highlands at the end of March and you won't find many open restaurants. Honestly, that's why we went to Wild Thyme and I'm so delighted we did! Started with spring rolls, which I think are a must and then for dinner I had the ravioli (delish) and my husband had one of the specials, prosciutto wrapped scallops--one word,... More
