Southern
A Modern Approach to Southern-Inspired Cuisine

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.

Refined Southern cuisine made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. The fried chicken and waffles are the standard by which all others will be now be judged! Chicken was brined, smoked, and fried to perfection.... Well-chosen charcuterie board with tasty unique meats and cheeses. Perfectly stuffed empanadas with tender crust and flavorful duck filling. Save room for the desserts - chocolate nut pie (full of nuts and not too sweet!) and red velvet cake were a perfect ending.
Original and refined cocktails and professional, attentive service rounded out a wonderful dining experience.

We had an amazing dinner! The food was so delicious and creative, but what really put it over the top was the staff. From the initial contact with our hostess, to a drink at the bar, to our server Angelica - who was seriously the best server I've ever had. She was so knowledgeable about every item on the menu - and we asked her about almost all of them!! She made the night enjoyable and relaxed. We'll be back for sure next time we're in Orlando!

We stayed at the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes for our anniversary and had a reservation at Highball and Harvest for dinner. The hotel let the restaurant know that it was our anniversary, and the staff went above and beyond to make us feel special. Lenny, our server, provided outstanding service. We started with a kale salad, enjoyed the redfish with a side of mac & cheese, and finished with dessert. All of the food was fresh and delicious. We could not have been happier with our meal at Highball & Harvest and will definitely be back.

Overall, we had a great experience. The service was top-notch, the ambience was great, the cocktails and available wine options were phenomenal. There was a buzz but it nd we felt overly loud, and the live musician made me rate it higher on the noise scale but he was really great.

The food was delicious, and everything had a fairly unique twist. The presentation was also outstanding, and the true farm-to-table aspect was really cool and offered some unique options. That said, the food was just slightly off what I expected the caliber to be, which in turn seemed to not quite justify the price. I’m definitely one who more enjoys the natural flavor of food rather than overseasoming, but it just seemed a little like the food was lacking a little chef’s flair. I’m not sure if that makes sense, and I want to reiterate it was still delicious. And I’d absolutely go back and recommend it!

We came here for lunch, and it was great. So we decided to come back for dinner, but had a different experience.

My wife, son, and I share all of the food. We ordered a salad as a buffer between apps and main course, but the salad never came. It was okay at the moment, but we realized we needed to get that salad. I say this because after eating our main dishes, we were still a little hungry. So, we ordered the pork special. This dish was not good at all. Basically, spent an extra $50-$60 for a mistake by the staff. We just needed that salad. I don't think we would eat at Highball & Harvest for dinner.

Our experience was overall very good. The food was unique and delicious. Our service was great. We had a waiter named Robbie who was very kind and good at his job. Along with being an excellent waiter he helped me and my party out with our future Disney/universal experiences. We learned some insider tips to the rides. Great times!

The lobster and duck confit was very disappointing the duck was so salty as to be inedible and the lobster was very fishy in taste.

Was attending a conference in Orlando and this farm to table was highly recommended to me by a colleague from Orlando. I love the Ritz so how could we go wrong? When our group arrived, they had a table set up pointing towards their kitchen door which meant if someone sat on the end, they'd see a dishwasher or something everytime the door opened-yuck. I requested another table and we were moved to a nice table in the middle of the restaurant. The food was just okay. The ambience was beautiful and the server was very attentive and super friendly however, she was on the run (they seemed short staffed). The Ritz itself looked like a beautiful hotel. A JW Marriott recently opened in Vancouver where I am from and their farm to table restaurant has amazing food. This one, was just okay in my opinion. The food looked better than it tasted (wings were so so, fish was served in a strange broth, etc).

Good, non chain restaurant food, fresh and interesting menu choices. Casual but clean. Our waiter was great, a guy named Robbie. He knew we had a long drive the next day and gave us a bag of waters for the road, called our car for us, and steered us towards good dishes. He even did a magic trick, which I normally would have rolled my eyes at, but it was genuinely good. Great experience, would go back.

Took a client here who is also a foodie and neither of us were impressed with the food....at all. If you can’t make a decent Mac & Cheese side dish, what CAN you make?

On the better side, the cocktails were excellent and the service was good.

I came away quite disappointed.

Had a birthday in the party. It was not recognized. Special triple dipped fried chicken was overdone and therefore dry and poor. Seasonal Mac n cheese very bland, not good.
Highlights were the Brussels sprouts and the “aged n cured”.
Service very average...at best.

We’re staying in Orlando and I was trying to find a good non-chain restaurant, boy did I find it! The food was excellent and the portions were definitely southern (when you order boar (pork) tenderloin, you get the whole tenderloin. My husband had the trout and it was equally delicious. The charcuterie board was great too, the honeycomb was a great touch. Our waitress was great, she was well informed on the food and gave us great suggestions. I may have to come back to Orlando just to eat there again.
