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

Excellent food and service
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!
Lenny was an amazing server! Food was great. We will definitely return.
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!
From the valet to check in with Jeremy... amazing outing.
Service provided by Daniel and his helper was top notch.
My Glutenfree Breakfast delicious!!!!!
Loved the experience!
LOVED it! Food was amazing! Atmosphere fun and natural. Awesome service! Drinks yummy!
Great food and amazing service. Can’t wait to go back when in Orlando
Your restaurant is my favorite. Always great food and service. Thank you so much!
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.
Modern southern restaurant located in the beautiful Ritz Carlton Hotel. Service was phenomenal, all food we had was out of this world.
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!
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.
