High notes and one low note
Service was great. The buffalo calamari was an inventive spin. The bacon wrapped dates were a treat. the shrimp po boy tasted like a basic grilled shrimp sanwhich - tasted fine but didn't detect any cajun/creole spices at all. The rib eye special was way overcooked relative to the medium rare order. But the management did not hesitate to make it right. Cocunut cake was a nice end to the meal. Good beer list on tap.

Something for everyone
While some of the recommendation categories seem to contradict each other, Highland Place provides for a varied clientele. Their bar seating and sidewalk tables were filled with families early in the evening, while our table in the dining room was cozy, quiet and relaxing. They also host live music on some nights, so check the website first if you are looking for a quiet romantic night. The food has always been fabulous. It varies from home cooking/bar food (burgers, sandwiches, mac & cheese) to gourmet (amazing inventive appetizers, cocktails, tapas and entrees).
Highland Place is a family favorite!

This location has had at least
This location has had at least 6 owners in the years that I have lived in the town. This current owner is one of the best. The staff is pleasant and well trained. Someone checked on our server, to make sure she was doing the job properly. We were 6 guys, and there was enough help to get our food out at the same time.
The dinner was quite nice. I had salmon and found it sufficiently moist, with interesting seasoning. I also had a caesar salad, which was done nicely and tasted as if they had made it from scratch. [Boo to all the places that simply pour dressing on shredded lettuce.]
The price point is excellent, and our gang of guys [all ex-Scout dads] plan to make this a regular gathering place.
PS: They make a great martini!
