    We love dining at Midpoint! I have a very strict diet I must adhere to and the staff is always so accommodating. The menu is so diverse and offers a little something for everyone. I wish I could remember our server’s name because she was so knowledgeable and helpful. She didn’t write our order down which made me a bit nervous given all my modifications but everything came out exactly as we ordered. I was very impressed with her! We started with a unique take on a shrimp cocktail. I had the strawberry salad and added a piece of blackened salmon. The salmon was cooked perfectly and the blackening seasoning was delicious. I added a side of truffle fingerling potatoes because I can’t resist them. My husband had the pork chop for the first time and said it most definitely won’t be the last time he orders this dish. This is a must visit if you’re visiting the Highlands area.

    I chose the restaurant randomly for dinner, after reading several reviews. The bartender at Half Mile Farms then confirmed it was a great choice (her favorite place in town) and I must say the reviews and our local bartender were correct. We had a terrific dinner -- the Mushroom Ravioli and the NC Trout were done to perfection -- savory and sublime -- and Tad, our server was hands-down excellent. Staff was friendly, energetic and polite (which is saying a lot given they were short-staffed) and the ambience is casual-cozy-chic which is perfect for any night of the week. We were also thrilled there was music and the right kind for a restaurant -- perfect for background but also excellent talent to be enjoyed (the singer was a real treat). Of our 3 restaurants chosen on this visit, MidPoint gets our #1 spot.

    I rated service a 3? because the meal took a long time. However waitstaff was extremely helpful and pleasant. After being seated outside we decided we like the inside better business and they quickly reseated us. The food was very good my husband Had trout which he said was better than he had the previous evening at a 4star restaurant.

    The food was outstanding and very good service,we sat on the balcony and it was a lovely night and not as noisy as the dining room. The calamari salad was wonderful and plenty for two. The sea bass almost melted in your mouth - so good ! All wait staff were friendly and attentive. A sign in the front said service could be slow due to staff shortage - never slow! Perfect dining experience!

    Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous! We had yet another excellent meal and experience in Highlands. We were a little concerned about lack of staffing but everything has been perfect so far! Making reservations ahead of time and from out of state is such a wonderful convenience. We’d never get to dine out otherwise or go at an off time.

    Our server was delightful and made tasty recommendations. We really enjoyed the Oysters Rockefeller and the stir fry. The pork chop was not cooked through. My husband cut it in half and sent it back for a few more minutes on the grill. It was fine after that. Good drinks and host seated us early which was extremely helpful.

    We love this restaurant and come here often. Unfortunately, last night, they were off on their service. We waited a very long time for our entree (after a salad) and had to ask for water refills. Our server opted not to come by the table until right before the entrees were served. It would have been nice to have her come by and explain what the issue was, but she didn't. The food was terrific. We are all about giving ample time and tips these days because we know they are struggling, but giving us a 10-second update on why they were behind would have been appreciated.

    Our reservation was for 8:30 on a Monday night and we were finally able to pay the check and leave at 10:01. Our food took an inordinately long time to be served - almost an hour I think - and the waiter did not come back until we asked another waiter to have our waiter bring our check (we could see him chatting with patrons in the outdoor section of the restaurant). We did not order appetizers and ordered only a glass of wine each which was ordered simultaneously with dinner. The sitting took 1-1/2 hours, a ridiculously long time.

    The food has good flavor. The ambiance outside is nice and quiet. My steak was overcooked originally. Waiter took my plate and my husband was finished with his dinner by the time they brought back my food. This was a $50 steak and honestly, it was seasoned so heavily that it was spicy. They did give us two complimentary glasses of Prosecco at the beginning of the meal, because it was our anniversary. I felt that they should at least offer a desert given that they messed up the entree.

    The "vibe" was madhouse. We had requested a window table on Open Table, but weren't even acknowledged as to having requested one and were sat in a dark corner. Yes, we could have objected, but there wasn't any other choice. There didn't seem to be enough wait staff and our wait person was working from one end of the restaurant to the other. Everyone was harried and it wasn't a very pleasant birthday dinner. As to the food, the brussels sprouts appetizer needed some oil or something to give it some moisture. The salmon main dish was the same. The Lobster ala Vodka was too spicy and should have had a jalapeno symbol by the choice. The lobster was good but very small. All in all, we should have stayed home and will on the next occasion.

    Love the patio deck on the second floor overlooking Main St. - a nice place to unwind at the end of the day. We enjoyed a watermelon caprese salad, the trout and the shrimp and chicken stir fry plus one of their bakery case desserts: the cappuccino dark chocolate!

    We were disappointed in our experience. We were seated immediately and given water and bread... then we waited almost 15 minutes for wait staff to come so we could give our drink order, we asked a passing server if they knew who our server was.. he said 'no' but that he would now be our server and took our drink order. Throughout the evening he checked in, took our food order. We did get our food in a timely manner but needed to remind server that we ordered a 2nd drink so that we would get it before we finished our meal. The watermelon and mozzarella salad was the best part of our dinner. The duck was unevenly cooked and not very tasty. The trout was covered in a lemon sauce that overpowered the dish, took 1/2 home but threw it out. The $18 dessert~ Dark Chocolate Cappuccino tart was a huge disappointment. The entire meal was not worth the money spent.
