We enjoyed our dinner at High Point. Food was very good. Atmosphere was kind of dull. We had hoped to learn a little about the history of the building but servers did not offer any insights into the historical aspects of the place.

I say "Best in the area" because that's really all there is in the area. I hate to compare it to other steak places but I can't help it. This place is really nice. They have a wide range of options. The atmosphere is great...More

Good was great! The restaurant has ties to Al Capone 's day. The place can handle a large party. The food is pricy but great.

What cab I say that hasn't been said about this incredible jewel in a picturesque town? The food is world class the selection ample, prices are fair and service professional. Also the history of this being Al Capones home ads a certain fun aura GO____

This is the higher end restaurant in this town. Dinner may cost you 30 without wine. The food was excellent and the staff was attentive and quick. They do take reservations.

There didn't seem to be an official dress code. We were dressed fairly formal, others were business casual.

Hi there. I'm not certain. But it is a very reputable place. If you call, I'm sure that would clear it up.

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.
