Old school. Great steaks and martinis. Not loud or bright. Great place to relax with a good meal. Comfortable booths. Good service. Easy parking - there is a valet lot right behind the place so you don't have to wander VA-HI looking for a spot.

Martinis & meat! The place to go when you need to escape from Atlanta’s pollen problem.

Great service. The NY strip steak and prime rib we ordered were fatty and tasted poor.

The oysters Rockefeller were very good

Highland Tap never disappoints. Love the carpaccio and the French onion soup. Their bread is also so fresh and warm. The Highland Tao is our “go to” restaurant for birthdays and celebrations.. Great food & service!

We went to Highland Tap for our anniversary. Had another couple with us. The food was amazing. The waitress was hard to understand and was not very knowledgeable about the menu. Ambiance was fantastic. Very unique dining experience.

Always a good dinner choice. Great martinis and decent steak for the price. They also can't get cell service in the dining room which makes for better conversations.

Great restaurant! From the moment you walk in you are warmly greeted and assisted. Servers were quick to take drink orders. Good menu selections and bar had a wide range of choices. Well worth the drive, parking is challenging at times so plan ahead.

As always, Highland Tap does not disapoint. Great menu, great taste, great drinks, great service, and really comfortable old school atmosphere. Valet parking in back makes it all easy. Try the buttermilk fried chicken with pepper gravy, it is amazing.

Hadn't been in ages so we decided to venture down to Va Highlands and very happy that we went with Highland Tap for dinner last Saturday evening. The food was great and the service was even better. We'll return again, sooner next time around!

Vodka martinis are good; blue cheese wedge is just a little better than mayo- disappointing, escargot was pretty lame, however the tuna tartar was outstanding, and the beef tartar was as well.

My medium rare blackened ribeye was tasty but over cooked and had twice as much seasoning on it as it needed. The waitress was nonplussed. Not what I remembered from years ago. It was late so it may have been everyone was tired.

This is one of our favorite spots for a quality steak and cocktails. The atmosphere is cozy with character. Since it was busy for Valentines, we were sat in the back room with the fireplace. What a great room!

Good food and service. My only issue is I thought the food could have been more seasoned. Other than that, the food wasn’t bad nor was the service. Pricey though. Nonetheless, pretty good spot. I would definitely recommend.

For those on a strict no wheat, sugar etc diet, Highland Tap is great. They turn an ordinary paleo meal into a feast. Hickory grilled filet, grilled vegetables, and grilled asparagas!
If you decide to step off the plan a little--try the delicious icy lemon drop martinis. Best ever!!
What was a hot spot in 1990's, should be again. Tucked away in VA highlands, Highland Tap should be on every paleo, gluten free, Fast Metabolism diet follower's list of places to go where you can have a great meal and not feel like you are on a restrictive diet!

Jesse was a great server. NY Strip was perfect! Great spot and one that brings back many memories. Had my first date there with my wife 19 years ago. Still a great place and the best in Virginia Highlands.

The prime rib at Highland Tap is the best! If you love cocktails, be sure to order one of their specials. Have been going there for 15 years and they have consistently great food and service.

Highland Tap used to be my go to steak place. I hadn't been in awhile and was excited to bring a friend there who had never been. The atmosphere was as I remembered it. Everything else though had changed. Ribeye was prepared incorrectly, sent it back, received no apologies. Then was "scolded" like a child for not liking the cold, grey piece of "f*ck you" steak I received from the cook on the second try. Everything was bland. The cheesecake was stale and frozen. The martini was good. The waitress was sweet. Overall, though. Not what I remembered. I won't be going back. There's too many good steak places in the city to waste my money here.

First timer with Boo for dinner! The wait was long even with a reservation but very happy we waited as the food was amazing! I had the prime RIB and it was to die for (juicy, cook perfect for a medium well)!
As an appetizer we had the calamari and it was the best I ever had in Atlanta😊😊
ambiance was nice but the couples behind us was a bit too loud but it is expected in a very crowded restaurant!
Server was ok but not over the top!

Had moderate expectations, but, just didn’t work out. Server was pretty Koch ch clean out the whole time, had order and food temp issues but couldn’t get wait staff attention. No attempt to apologize or make it right. Four us of all shared the same experience so I doubt this is on our do over list. Sorry, but we gave it a shot.

We had lunch at 11:30 and were the first people in the restaurant. It was quiet at that time of day. The patty melt was tasty. It was a good place to catch up with a friend over lunch.
