Went here for anniversary dinner. Best trout we have ever had. Service was wonderful. The entire evening was special. Would definitely return if we ever are in Highlands.

If you like a steak charred on the outside and bluish red on the inside, their Pittsburg style with a glass of Scots Honor cannot be beat!!! The wife enjoyed trout oscar. Before we left, we made reservations for 2 nights later. That says it all!

We always enjoy dining out at Wolfgang's. The menu choices are diverse, therefore we never run out of options. The service is attentive but not smothering and the ambiance allows for private conversation. It's always a treat.

We had a very good meal at Wolfgang - there were six of us. Ambiance was fabulous, service was good and the food was very good. Highly recommend the Lamb if you go -- they also did a good job with the fish of the day. A gem in the Highlands!

The restaurant is broken up into several dining areas. We were seated in a back dining area that was a bit on the chilly side. The food was very good. Some of the best salmon I have had. Our food arrived as ordered and hot. Our only disappointment was the cleanliness. The ceiling fans are white and very dirty. The light fixtures were also very dusty and had cobwebs in them. While not affecting the food, it made us feel like the restaurant needed a good cleaning.

My husband and I were vacationing in the Highlands and Wolfgang’s was recommended to us.
Our meal was good. I ate the Beef Stroganoff special and my husband ate the Mountain Trout.
Our wine choice was the Alexander Valley Merlot. We would love to visit the Highlands again and this restaurant.

The best! If you're in Highlands you need to eat at Wolfgang's. Excellent service, Fantastic food and Wolfgang hmself oftens comes out to greet guests between stints in the kitchen. The Shrimp and Grits was some of the best I've ever had. A simple, wonderful mix of flavors. My wife had Wolfgang's veal special which was also terrific. We'll be back Wolfgang!

Chef-owned, Wolfgang's is my favorite "go-to" restaurant in Highlands, NC. The atmosphere is comfortable and casual, with delicious, well-presented dishes. And they make an effort to become familiar with their repeat customers, too, which I like.

The main dining room is warm and welcoming with a stone fireplace. We were a party of 6, seated at a round table in the middle of the room. I was concerned that we would disrupt the other patrons, but the ambient noise of the room and the easy, comfortable ambience made for a fun and memorable evening. As always, the food was spectacular, and the service was professional yet personable. When the chocolate cake arrived at the table with candle aglow for the birthday boy, the entire dining room sang along. Wonderful!
