Highball & Harvest
Aside from the classic cocktail, a highball is a train conductor’s signal to depart at full speed. It was how Central Florida’s abundant harvests moved from field to table, an iconic symbol of the region’s agricultural might. Highball & Harvest (H&H) pays homage to this legacy, with menus laden with ingredients from local farms, as well as our own green-growing efforts. We pluck fresh produce from our on-site 7,000- square-foot garden at Whisper Creek Farm. Handcrafted cocktails are infused with seasonal fruits and herbs, and create a culinary adventure that is as inspiring as it is memorable.
Valet parking is available and will be validated in the restaurant

The selection was bad. It’s ok for a hamburger but that’s about it.
We had the entire outside seating area to our selves. Our waiter was incredible!
The experience was excellent. They ensure everyone was safely socially distanced. The service and atmosphere was top notch.
Yes, it's at the Ritz so one should expect over-priced menu items. However, with those prices should be top quality. I've had far better prime rib for less than half the price of my entree that came with potato balls and one straggly piece of broccolini.
The service was top-notch, which is why I gave the rating a good overall.
We returned to Highball and Harvest because we liked it so much during our 2019 visit. Despite being disappointed with the very limited menu selections, what we ordered was tasty and well prepared. Our server was pleasant and very efficient.
We’ll be back!
A surprisingly limited menu for the Ritz. I would have expected 20 entree choices not six. Definitely not someplace conduct a business dinner.
Terrible coffee, eggs were not hot, bacon acceptable. Would have sent my food back for rewarming but embarrassing to do so.
We had a very good meal at Highball & Harvest. The service was outstanding and the food was great, especially the venison. We'll definitely return.
Our server was the best I’ve ever had. Thoughtful, lively, and helpful. Her service shined above everything else.
The chicken and waffles were very disappointing. Waffle was comparable to what you’d expect from the self-service waffle makers at a Fairfield Inn. For a $32 dish that’s the supposed star of the menu, I’m expecting a D-1 SEC level performer, and all I got was barely intramural level at a D-3 school. I should have known better.
Awesome ambience, cool bar and fun little game tables. Food was great
Appetizers were delicious (charcuterie board) as well as the main meals. We did send one item back, only because it lacked in flavor but was still fresh in terms of ingredients. All other entrees were delicious (shrimp and grits were exceptional). Service was outstanding and outdoor dining was relaxing and peaceful! Definitely will go back!!
The service was great and menu was just right
Ryan was an excellent server. We sat outside on the fabulous patio!! The food was delicious and good portions.
Uneven quality of food, poor accommodation for people with allergies. Appeared that is was easier to say “No it’s not safe” than truly checking. Also, some dishes were better than others. The chicken wings were delicious as was the grilled romaine. The vegetarian special was soggy and tasted unusual and unimpressive. Definitely not worth the $300 spent.
My son and I had our Valentines Day date night here and it was lovely! He did end up with a stomach ache from some other issues and the waitress, Angelica, was awesome! She brought him tea and boxed up his meal with no problems. We will definitely be coming back. The food was so very good! A great twist on Southern classics!
The food, service, entertainment (both musical & games) was so good we ate at H&H three times during our stay. We were guided to Marriott’s Primo for fine dining but can now say H&H is our favorite. They have a little something for everyone.
Delicious food and amazing service!
I love coming here about once or twice a month for the breakfast buffet !!
However the regular coffee is very bitter - I wish you would get a better brand that is smoother - it is almost too hard to drink it - and yet coffee goes so well with breakfast and those sticky buns !!
Please get another brand ! thanks !!
Very good service and high quality food especially considering its in the hotel. I had the butternut squash soup which was delicious and the grain bowl - which had somewhat sparse vegetables and was abit bland but overall very good.
A friend and I have attended the same conference in Orlando for the last 2 years and we have eaten at Highball and Harvest each time and have absolutely loved it! We look forward to the experience...
Overpriced. Wine was excessively over priced. Service was great.
Great food and service, eaten there before.
, would recommend
Our daughter found this place and we are so glad she did! Interesting to find a casual Southern style place in a Ritz Carlton. Comfortable, warm and the staff were excellent! A definite the next time we are in Orlando!
Menu needs more choices. Choices were overpriced
Although Farm to Table, it is mostly “comfort” food and not so much healthy options.
Casual atmosphere was nice. We felt the menu was limited.
The meals were very nice. Wine list way over priced.
Amazing! Our server was attentive & thorough. The sommelier, Gary made the experience incredible by helping to pair cocktails & wines with all of our meals.
Our waiter Robbie was fantastic and made our Christmas Eve dinner that much more amazing. Food was excellent, the attention to our daughter’s nut allergy and overall impeccable service topped this experience off!
The best steaks we ever had were served to 3 of us. The shrimp and grits were outstanding and the red snapper was delicious and served over an onion gravy ,creating a tasty combination. The mashed potatoes were absolutley the best ever! Our server was pleasant, polite, and timed every single thing perfectly. This was without a doubt the best Christmas Eve meal we have experienced in Orlando. We live here , and we have tried a lot of places. We brought our family with us and they also loved it. We have decided whenever we have a VIP client we will be returning.The gingerbread house ad in the newspaper, by the way, is what made us choose Highball & Harvest over all the resorts and other restaurants. It was delighfully created and enjoyable. The tables were set at a perfect distance apart and the atmosphere was well done at the restaurant to have a perfectly peaceful, relaxing, and enjoyable meal. Well done H & H!!!!!!
Robbie and Ryan displayed impeccable professionalism and service was amazing and food was delightful in a beautiful setting!
Comida excepcional, una atencion casi personalizada hacen que la experiencia sea espectacular!
If you and your partner or dinner party are foodies, this is a great place in Orlando. The quality of the product is excellent and fresh, and there are some things made differently, presented differently and or with different taste that set this restaurant apart from others. I call this upscale southern comfort food and it is just very tasty and enjoyable. First class service.
Two criticisms but only because it should be fair: the price point is high and this is not a family night out for most. Second, it can be a bit noisy because it is located below the lobby of the Ritz Carlton hotel, however, it is not upsetting or distracting.
Would not hesitate to return and will
Always delicious food and great service! Visit whenever we are in Orlando!
The butternut squash soup was not as hot as I would have liked, and pretty watery. The Nashville hot chicken sandwich was barely spicy. But the service and ambiance was good.
The option pulled up under brunch but when got there they closed the breakfast buffet we like at noon so regular menu was almost nonexistent of actual brunch items. They allow us to order off menu still eggs Benedict but really went there for the breakfast buffet before the car show.
All the buffet food was cold except the made to order eggs, which was hot but over cooked because the chef was very busy by herself, she did not have anyone helping her. The selection was smaller than I was here last time couple years ago.
The service was not very good, the waitress seemed like we were a bother. I told her the sugar container was out of stevia packs, she just slammed another sugar container down and walked away... that container had 1 stevia pack...
She came checked on us only once and just seemed annoyed when I asked for more juice. The waiter at a nearby table was more helpful and pleasant.
I had a hard time finding anyone to refill my teapot, when I finally got the waitress’ attention, she brought me a to-go cup (which I didn’t ask for), so I felt very rushed.
I had indicated a special occasion on my open table reservation, but that was not acknowledged during my visit.
The food and service quality definitely fell below what I would expect from the Ritz Carlton. I was disappointed.
The fried chicken was outstanding, everything was. Deviled eggs were awesome. Great place.
We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with family. The service, food and ambiance were all fantastic!
