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

Great place. The only thing that I didn’t like was the drinks. You pay almost $20 per drink and it’s literally 4 tablespoons of acohol plus de mixer.

Service is always number 1, and at Highball & Harvest it is impressively matched by the delicious menu. You are guaranteed to find something unique yet familiar. From cocktails to small bites to entrees, close your eyes and point. You're guaranteed to find a delicious, carefully crafted treat. You can probably use the same technique for dessert, too, if you can manage to leave some room.

Meh. Was staying at hotel. Most impressive was shuffle board table and bar tender who seemed to embody hospitality vs the theme parked staff who served me.

Great restaurant. Menu is somewhat limited and price point is on the higher side (located at the Ritz). The best chicken wings in my opinion - they brine / pickle the wings for 24 hours then cook them… amazing. They are expensive but worth it IMO.

Food was great. Wine was a bit over priced (3X markup is always on the steep side in my opinion). The wait staff was excellent. Dessert and the scallops were on point!

Menu was not even close to the one pictured online (much less diverse/fewer options) - Ambience and service are excellent!! The pricing depicted online is not true ($30 and under noted on sites and $$) several entrees near $50 or more & a glass of average quality wine is approx $20 (+) just wish everything we found on open table and their website would have been more accurate.

Disappointed. Service was on par with The Ritz Carlton reputation however the food was subpar. The charcuterie was sliced like slabs of meat instead of the thin refined slices that it should be for bresaola or prosciutto. The pork was over cooked. The best thing I had was the cauliflower.

Would not go back unfortunately

Overall, the experience was good.

Had hoped for more choices on the menu.

We had hopes for the fried green tomatoes, but the coating was almost like beer batter and tough, however the toppings were wonderful and saved it.

I ordered the shrimp and grits which looks nothing like the review photos. Instead of larger shrimp, they were small and a tad rubbery. My daughter ordered the scallops that were supposed to be over sweet potato grits with roasted vegetables, but they were over regular grits and the whole dish was way over salted and inedible.

The Parker house rolls are to die for, however! Baked all together and a little love as a pull a part what else on top… Delicious.

We shared a crème brûlée which was absolutely wonderful!

The service was amazing, and our server was absolutely delightful.

The wait staff, the food, the drinks, all great. The bartenders don’t mind you going off script and modifying or putting in a special request. The Decour of the restaurant is great open lots of light in the seating area nice bar. I gave it to on ambience only because there are parents who had brought toddlers and children into the restaurant. It’s the Ritz Carlton, at a $60 a plate restaurant, I wasn’t really looking for that in my experience. I think this happens often, likely because of a couple dining options not being open. However crying babies and kids running around, it was a distraction

A party of 4 went to celebrate a birthday. The server was nice and what I expected for the Ritz Carlton. The food was bland and over priced. We had a total of 3 cocktails, 3 appetizers and dinner for 4 and it was $275. If the food matched the price I wouldn’t have had an issue but it wasn’t good. Instead of letting the flavor speak for itself, they paired too many things and forgot the seasoning. I had the quail, which was a new item. The ham gravy was bland and quail was overcooked. The birthday girl ordered scallops mid rare and they were came out mid well. The men ordered burgers and they were good. Being from the South and it being the Ritz, I expected far more than what I received. I won’t be back.
