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.

Really enjoyed the dinner as we celebrated our 21st Anniversary!
The chicken and chocolate cake were amazing. Great choices of wine. Just a little loud.

Wolfgang's Restaurant is our family's favorite in Highlands. The staff is cordial and knowledgeable and the food is unsurpassed. The wine list is one of the best that we have seen. We have been dining at Wolfgang's Restaurant for years and always look forward to being there. It is a restaurant definitely not to be missed!

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!

Only complaint was my food was super salty, woke up in the middle of the night and had to drink a lot of water. We will go back. My husband loved the lamb, he said one of the best he has ever had..

Chef owned and operated. Steak was good to perfection. Lamb medallions were similar cooked to a perfect medium. Amazing extensive wine list. Good service - not overly attentive, but there when needed. Suprisingly priced - compared to comporable restaurants in big cities.

Wolfgang’s was nothing short of accommodating. Our waiter was excellent. The seating hostess was very social and made us feel welcome. We ordered the strip steak and the shrimp special with risotto (YUM!). They even made me a “mocktail” as I’m expecting. And they were more than willing to allow us to take dessert to-go. We will be back!

I’m in the high tech space and own several restaurants around the country. Lousy operation. Rude servers and nothing more then a franchise operation. Much better restaurants in Highlands on Main Street don’t waist your time and money with this mediocre establishment.

My wife and I visited Wolfgangs for the first time tonight. The food was excellent in every respect, from the salad, entree then dessert. The environment was quite cozy and romantic. The staff was extremely pleasant. The prices are reasonable given the 5 star quality of the food. This is our new "go to" for any overnight trip to Highlands. There is at least one fireplace. We were lucky enough to be seated near it. Just know that when making a reservation if that appeals to you. I would make a reservation online as it's difficult to get in without one. We wanted to go somewhere nice and honestly most restaurants of this quality are quite stuffy with a risk of rude staff. Not so with Wolfgangs.

Exceptional service from the moment we arrived. Our daughter had set up surprise wine & appetizers to celebrate my 66th birthday. The Venison is the absolute finest. If you have been reluctant or have not visited Wolfgang’s, you are missing the best restaurant in Highlands!

We visit Highlands once or twice a year and Wolfgang’s is one of our favorite restaurants . We spent Thanksgiving week in Highlands and had Thanksgiving lunch at Wolfgang’s! My husband had the roast and I had the shrimp and grits and BOTH were delicious. We did not miss turkey and dressing at all! Thank you Wolfgang’s restaurant and stafff!
