    Restaurant was very crowded and understaffed. Drink order was taken but was given the wrong drink so had to wait again. Ordered the broiled cod with potato pancakes, and it was just okay. The salad was very plain with only tomatoes on it. They were out of croutons. We were never given the bread loaf, probably because the waitress was flustered due to not enough staff. Restaurant was average, and overpriced for what we received.

    We were able to sit outside on a beautiful night. The food and service were excellent! The patio is large but needs work. Maybe by September it’s in their rear view. Would definitely recommend this restaurant if you’re traveling between Milwaukee and Madison.

    Didn't realize Sunday was buffet only. But it was well priced and food was ok. Good Bloody Mary. Lots of people but people going to the buffet didn't really have to wait. Less traffic after 12:30. Great half way point to meet people from the Madison area. We'll go back for a regular meal. We've been there on a Saturday night and food is good.

    We were here for Sunday brunch. The food was terrible. Eggs Benedict was hard as a rock. No bacon out. Cold tasteless eggs. Cold gravy for your hard biscuits. Awful desserts, too. The waitress was not very pleasant either. We haven’t been here in years, and we won’t be back.

    We had a very fine dining experience. The food we ordered varied across three people but was uniformly very good. The service was excellent though it took a little longer than expected to get our appetizer. Overall, this was a great experience to share with my brother who visiting from out of state.

    The service was excellent. Our server, Ella, was upbeat, fun and so polite. Right there when we needed her. She checked up on us multiple times for drink refills, plate pick up, etc. She was awesome. The interior looked a little tired. The carpet and seating looked worn and old. The falling water was nice, but noisy. Occasionally the bass music from the bar area was distractingly annoying. The Sunday brunch was large and had many choices. Breakfast, dinner and dessert. Most of the food was mediocre at best. Several choices were not hot enough. The vegetables, for example, were undercooked and hard. (carrots, beans) I'm not sure what was on the base of the eggs benedict, but it didn't taste like an english muffin. The unpeeled shrimp were lukewarm. We had to open every container to find out what was inside. Labels/signage would have helped.

    Our experience was made more enjoyable because of our server James. Very friendly, professional, knowledgeable and funny. I normally don't drink alcohol, he guided me to a Strawberry Moscow Mule - great choice! Our food was delicious - compliments to the chef! We felt the atmosphere was in need of a little sprucing/brightening up. We were sharing things with each other to read and in the dim light and dark walls it was difficult to read. Brightening would be a wonderful improvement! James made our night even more enjoyable, very engaging and sociable - great asset to your restaurant!

    My fiancé took me there for my birthday. Took an hour and a half to get our food. Drinks were constantly empty. Like our waiter completely forgot about us. And my main course I couldn’t even eat when it did finally come because of the amount of salt that was in it. I couldn’t even choke down two bites it was so salty. The waiter did offer to send it back but after an hour and a half wait, we didn’t want to wait any longer. Absolutely disappointed.

    Servers were very attentive and kind but the food was seriously lacking. My fiancé ordered the shrimp scampi which ended up being buttered noodles with uncooked cherry tomatoes and plain shrimp with no sauce. I ordered the salmon which was just ok as it needed more aggressive seasoning and fresher fish. Overall not the absolute worst place we’ve eaten but definitely not the best, especially considering the higher prices. The building itself is very cool inside; it has so much potential if the food were only better!

    Spent the dinner celebrating the twin's birthday with wonderful plates of BBQ ribs and steak along with cheesecake for dessert. Atmosphere was great, quiet so that we could talk, great views from the windows and finished with ice cream Grasshoppers and Golden Cadilacs. Price was right. Will come back soon.

    Even though they knew they were understaffed and couldn’t keep up with the buffet, they kept seating people. This resulted in at least half the food containers being empty, and as soon as they would bring something out, people would swarm it and it would be gone in 2 minutes. There was no lettuce on the salad bar the entire 1.5 hours we were there. The ham and turkey were clearly processed and looked disgusting, probably why those didn’t run out. It took 20 minutes to get our bar drinks. Highly disappointing.

    The food was cold and because they were short staffed we didn't get refills on drinks or any attention from our server. The ambiance is cool and the bartender was nice. The patio area looks really nice and I would enjoy sitting out there if I could trust the food again.

    Unfortunately the food was cold and this is the second time in a row that it has been that way. The eggs benedict were so hard and crusty I had to basically saw through it with a knife. Spoons were missing in dishes and they couldn't get the omelet station to work. And this was as soon as they opened. It was like their first time serving brunch, which I know it wasn't. I don't think we will be back. Too many times of so-so food for not a so-so price!

    Had a reservation for Saturday at 7 as was passing through on the way home. Took hostess over 5 minutes to arrive at the desk, which at least 9 people were standing waiting to be acknowledged. Hostess obviously stressed or in a bad mood, as could barely even understand her, but followed her to our table and past a very dirty and disorganized server station. Our waitress was new and very sweet but did not seemed a bit overwhelmed. We overheard the waiter apologizing to the table next to us and started to get a bit nervous... Our food was only WARM. French onion soup should be bubbly and cheese melted when arriving. Salad tasted old and blue cheese was strange tasting and no french was served with it. Had to ask for bread. Waited for our beers. Waited a long time for our food, which also was only warm. Both baked potatoes were hard and dry. I literally spit my cold half cooked frozen bagged veggies out onto my plate! Another server stepped in and apologized. We tried to stay pleasant, but got the heck outta there as soon as we could. This place needs significant help in cleanliness, maybe a condensed menu since we heard they have been severely short-staffed, server training, and better quality food. When leaving a group of men said goodbye at the door. Must have been the owners? They should have been helping their employees, instead of standing around talking. We will never return.

    I was a tad apprehensive about Hiway Harry's after reading some rather negative reviews. But having been there several times already and my need for a quiet corner for a meeting, we booked at HH's. It turned out to be ideal for our group. Off in a corner, low noise level, delightful ambience and reasonably priced good food. No complaints by any of our party. And–if you are concerned about drinking–they have very generous pours, at least for martinis!!

    Unfortunately this was a really bad night for them. Our server quit. The food was terrible. The wait us unreasonable. They weren't tracking online reservations but happened to have an open table but then not enough servers. Also, we mentioned twice (once online in the reservation and then to the hostess that it was our daughter's birthday) and the forgot to sing to her. They did take a percentage off of our bill and gave us a gift certificate to return but we aren't running back. If the food has been amazing I think we could have overlooked their rough night. Food was terrible.

    The food is truly terrible. Even the bread tasted bad. There is a truck stop across the highway from this restaurant. I’m told it is owned by same family as Harry’s. However, the food at the truck stop is several steps above what is served at Highway Harry’s.

    Would not return for the Sunday Brunch. Made reservations, after being seated waited 10 to 15 minutes for waitstaff to bring waters. Finally got up and grabbed food thinking maybe drinks weee in buffet. Caught another waitress and asked he if we could get waters. Was told Cody was our waiter, Cody never showed up. Finally got water from other waitress. Ordered drinks, after we had already gotten a plate of food. Beef was chewy and cold, ham was cold, salmon was bone only left ( no refill 1 hour before closing buffet) and waitress disappeared again … waited for at least 30 minutes for the bill. Must be short handed. We have been there previously during the week, Prior to Covid food was great… disappointing for the price you pay for the buffet!

    Both My wife’s and my own ribeye steaks were not good. Flavorless, and how ever they were cooked was far from desired. For what the price of your steaks are you would expect more.

    A year I would have given 5 stars. This time it was not good. Food was ice cold when we got it almost an hour after ordering. My husbands beverage glass was literally broken with a missing piece of glass which was probably in the drink and jagged edges, we were still charged for the drink. I asked that the fish on my salad was cooked medium well and it was literally raw and there was no dressing provided. Husbands shrimp pasta was literally swimming in oil and ice cold. This used to be our favorite place, we won’t be back.

    It was disappointing to arrive, be seated and then discover that the only option for dining was a buffet style brunch. There was no mask requirement in the midst of the Omicron surge at this venue. Needing to access food options unprotected, and even observing a server using bare hand to serve meat was appalling at best. Paid $22 for this unacceptable experience.
