    21 years ago we got married at the Highlands Inn and it still hasn’t lost it’s touch. We requested a corner on the window table and that’s exactly where we were seated. The view is outstanding (of course), but the consistency of the food is what keeps us coming back. The staff also makes the experience an absolute treat. Can’t say enough great things about Pacific’s Edge, you just have to experience it yourself.

    We brought our son and two of his friends here for dinner. It was bright and cheery inside, the bartender was wonderful, our waitress was great as well. The food was interesting and very good. You didn’t feel rushed and it was a lovely choice for people who wanted to sit and chat and get to know each other. Just a very pleasant environment with a nice ambience.

    We’re dying outside because we had two dogs. They were so accommodating and even have great meal choices for dogs . We got the grilled chicken that is unseasoned and a side of rice for each of our dogs and there’s so much they could’ve shared. The meatballs were fantastic. Can’t recommend them enough.
