For the money, not worth a return visit. The ceiling fans were dirty, the hostess and staff were not very friendly. The food while "ok", certainly wasn't worth the price we paid - it didn't wow us enough to overlook the other inadequacies. It appears as though this restaurant has been around for a number of years, and the management/ownership has let down it's guard. I'm sure it could be great again - but it certainly wasn't when we visited.

Wolfgang’s is always an excellent experience. Terrific menu options, excellent service, reasonably priced. We come here every time we’re in Highlands, which has a lot of great restaurants.

The service was very attentive and helpful. The chauteubrian was perfectly don and the accompanying crisped spinach and broiled vegetables and broiled tomatoes and sautéed onions were also perfectly done. It was a great meal. Definitely recommend it for any special guest or occasion.

Wolfgang’s is one of our favorite restaurants in Highlands. However we were very disappointed with the service this last visit. There were several errors made on the order and the bill was incorrect. Also the service was quite slow. We were there for two hours and we can normally get in and out within an hour

We had a wonderful dinner The menu was full and had something for each of us to enjoy. The Lobster Bisque was lackluster. I wish I would
Have chosen the French onion soup. The lamb although description was a bit off was beautiful my guest was thankful it had the chop. Which by the description wasn’t mentioned. My mother and I shared the Châteaubriand which cam cooked perfectly the presentation was fun. Your cocktail were scrumptious

Food overrated. I ordered pork chop and it was a bit dry with a sauce that did not pair well with it. French onion soup was delicious!
My husband had shortrib which was very tender, but sides not very hot, temp wise.
I would try again if in the area.

All of our dinner was delightful. Wolfgang's bringing together of classic European recipes while using the traditions of the south was terrific. Likewise, the extensive wine selections and excellent and timely service were both a "10". While our late call for a FR reservation only made 5:30 a choice to dine--we were not rushed. We will return!

If you like eating outside, the back deck is an awesome spot and also the front patio. Inside is dusky and old feeling, but cozy. Ordered the bisque, very tasty, but could have been thicker. Crab cake was full of meat, but dry to my liking. The shrimp were too crunchy and seemed overdone. My husband got the trout, pretty bland. For the money, I expected a little more delicacy. Maybe their steaks are good!? We didn't order because they were pretty pricey. I would return to sit out on the back deck for a cocktail, though!
