Our server, Briony, was outstanding. She was knowledgeable about the menu and had a sense of humor which enhanced our dining experience. Too often we find ourselves when asking our servers for their opinion on the menu we get the same old answer “everything is great”. Sometimes this results in disappointment. Briony knew the right questions to ask us and then gave us her insights as to what we might enjoy. She was spot on.

It was so nice. Great location and ambience. The customer service was soooo amazing. Everyone from the hostess to the server treated us like royalty for Father’s Day. They even quickly pivoted to help us move from the patio to inside after it started raining. All of our dishes were great and our daughters licked their plates clean. Great price for a family of 5. My daughters asked if they were open for breakfast. :-)

We were nervous given the pandemic but the staff were all masked, wore gloves and the tables were spread. We felt comfortable. We chose the chateaubriand along with a bottle of Chateauneuf du pape. I started with the gazpacho. Food, wine and service were great. And we splurged with dessert.

Thanks to the chef and staff for lifting our spirits in these troubling times.

The restaurant was very careful about Health precautions. Menu varied. Our server Debra was outstanding and the food was delicious for the price. I would definitely return. Tried a lot of restaurants in Highlands, this is by far one of the best.

Best meal we have had in a while. The lamb was perfect and the Veal Scallopini Wolfgang had the best cabarnet sauce I've ever had! We wanted to try several other dishes also. Next trip!

Food was okay, but nothing really special. I had the Bavarian Sampler, and my wife had Crawfish Etoufee. Neither were bad, just not anything special.

I ordered surf/ turf the lobster was good the filet had absolutely no flavor. I dont use steak sauce but i had to dip my steak in my butter and salt and pepper it myself. The asparagus had no flavor either. The waiter was great the cake was great too.

So yummy!!!! The dining room was beautiful and simple. We were seated and given menus/wine list. I started with a Pomegranate Martini, delish. I had the onion soup and my husband the Caesar! Both great. Hands down best Entree was my husbands BBQ shrimp over cheese grits with collards. I have the crab cake and pecan shrimp. Crab cake was not my fav, shrimp was fantastic! The grits y’all I mean the grits were amazing!! Ended the meal with Creek brûlée so good! All the staff was super attentive and kind. Our server was super busy and no one left us to feel ignored. For those that always ask about dress code. My husband wore a sports coat but not all the men did. You definitely did not see casual clothing, more business casual

The whole experience was very good. The food was great , loved our waitress , whom we found out had waited on us when we lived in Hilton Head. The only downside was the table was beside a door that was used to get outside and waitresses used to get our meal from the kitchen via the outside door. ( kinda a strange way to get to the kitchen)! It was very cold when the door was used by the staff , and a customer got three phone calls that he HAD to take by going out the door. Why not use the just as close FRONT DOOR ?
Still , we enjoyed the meal and plan on going back the last week of Feb , when we go back to Highlands , rapidly becoming one of our favorite places to get away.

Wolfgang's is always great and this visit was no exception. Perfect place on a cold night. Short rib was melt in your mouth tender and full of flavor. Collards were the best I have ever had anywhere. Pork shank was incredible and enough meat for 3 people. Apple cobbler the best. Always try to have a meal at Wolfgang's when visiting HIghlands.

This dinner was to celebrate my wife's birthday. When we checked in, the hostess immediately wished my wife a Happy Birthday, which was a pleasant surprise. We were taken to a quiet, intimate table, waited on by a pleasant, attentive server, and provided with a glass of wine. We both ordered the salmon special, which was outstanding, along with garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. Finally, my wife was presented with a complimentary dessert with a sparking candle to top off the evening. Very, very pleased with the entire experience!
