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.


Valet parking is available and will be validated in the restaurant

The food was horrible. Taste bad, cold and slow service! Kiss of death for a restaurant. If u r staying at the Ritz Orlando eat outside of the resort. I had dinner and breakfast and both meals were bad. I would not recommend!

I sat at the bar and the service was outstanding! Very friendly but not intrusive. The Southern Spread appetizer was excellent.

When we initially arrived it was a bit disappointing to see the limited menu. However, the server made up for that with his excellent service and extras. We felt special and catered to when we saw the anniversary sign made for us and the champagne was very good!

First Class! Impeccable service from Alex and the entire ambiance was welcoming, safe, clean and everyone wore masks. I would encourage anyone to savor the experience at the Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes Orlando.

Great overall, the safety measures were fantastic. The service was truly amazing, always there asking if they could do more for us. It was breakfast, so it wasn't noise like at the evening.

Shrimp and grits were not very good. It was apparent they used frozen shrimp. Everything else was good!

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

Although Farm to Table, it is mostly “comfort” food and not so much healthy options.
