Excellent soup of the day, Spinach and Arichoke, was fabulous! And the spicy hamburger my husband ordered was so tasty and cooked to order! Beware! Sweet potato chips are addictive and can be bought by the lb! (We did!) We could have gone back for...More

The soups and sandwich that my sister and I had for lunch were mediocre, at best. It was very disappointing based upon the recommendations we received and my memory of this restaurant.More

I can't say enough good things about the crab cakes. I would love to have the recipe for myself. I had 2 of them on a spinach salad.

Highlands is full of creative chefs offering great food, so the competition is high and the bar raised. Given that fact, when I compare Wild Thyme to its competition across the street at Cypress, they are just slightly behind. But not by much. My wife...More

My wife and I had two great dinners while being snowbound in the Highlands. My wife had salmon one night and the eggplant appetizer and vegetable soup the next. I had the steak and pork chop the two nights. Service and drinks were excellent.

We stopped by for lunch. Bar tender waited on us and was efficient but a little distracted. Split a chicken wrap that was plenty for two and very tasty. Also very good drinks.

Out for a shopping trip and we came upon this wonderful restaurant. What a gem! The food was fantastic, and our server, Deborah, is actually reason enough to visit! Looking forward to a return visit.

I'm sorry that you did not enjoy your meal with us, in fact it sounds like there was nothing that you liked. First of all our crab cakes are all crab meat with no filler, they use egg white and mayo as a binder. Second...More
