I've eaten here many times throughout the years and although it is better sometimes than others, I have never been disappointed in High Point (well, except for when they took their awesome almond crusted crab cakes off the menu). One review complained that there was only one bathroom, but there are bathrooms upstairs & down and the one upstairs has... More

We stopped here after hiking all day. We were tired and hungry. Still in hiking attire the very friendly staff gladly seated us and served us dinner. Very nice building and the atmosphere was great. It was a little expensive but very delicious!

The food at this restaurant is fabulous. The atmosphere is great and the service is good. BUT when I had to go to the bathroom, there was only one ....for male and female ( one stall). I got frustrated trying to get to the restroom, but after 3 attempts, I made it. I almost didn't make it, however.

Supposedly a hideout for Al Capone's gang in the roaring 20's. It is a quaint little restaurant with a high end menu and extensive wine list. The meal started with bowls of an excellent lobster bisque. The wife had the almond crusted trout with spinach stuffed pastry which she raved about. I had a bacon wrapped filet with a side... More

My wife and I have eaten here many times over the years and especially for anniversary or important occasions. We dined here for new years eve and were promptly seated upstairs. I noticed an air vent half hanging from the ceiling. Not a big deal but it made me wonder if they are not paying attention to detail elsewhere. We... More

The legend has it that big Al Capone frequented this establishment during his many trips from Chicago to Miami as well as being an investor. Believe what you will, this is what I know. If you're looking for some upscale dining, fabulous food, and service that exceeds expectations, this is your place. The menu is quite diverse, an extensive wine... More

Beautiful home with ties to Al Capone made the setting interesting. Charming rooms complete with fireplaces. Staff was excellent. My husband had a wonderful steak; I had a very special salad topped with grilled peaches. We will definitely be going back.

Description
Built inside a 1929 mansion that presumably once was financed by Al Capone, the restaurant serves a menu of traditional gourmet dishes including Brie en Croute, Blackened Salmon Oscar and Black Thai Duck. The mansion that houses the restaurant was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997 and still features the original escape hatches and underground tunnels that were used by Capone to transfer liquor during the Prohibition Era. In 2001, High Point received the "Best Gourmet Meal in Tennessee" award from "Tennessee" magazine.
