My wife and I had a great lunch on a cold winter day with another couple and everyone's food was terrific and Kelly's service was stellar!

We stopped for a late lunch in Highlands. We have been to the Wild Thyme before. The food is always good and we had more than we could eat. This is a little pricey for lunch. Our bill before tip was $34 and the hot tea was $3.75 which is quite high.

My husband and I both had the grilled veggie sandwich with the rice salad. Both were amazingly delicious. We had our huge dog with us and they set us up outside on the patio with a dog bowl. Wonderful service and great food.

Wonderful little full service restaurant with outside seating; perfect for lunch while shopping this small village. Also open for dinner although we only had lunch. Varied menu with great sandwiches, soups and daily specials. Full bar. Recommended.

We stopped here on a chilly day for homemade soup and sandwiches based on several recommendations from locals. It didn't disappoint - we just wish we had room for dessert which looked very tempting. We'll definitely stop here again on our next visit to Highlands.

Food and service were very good. Casual, comfortable seating on the inside adorned with some very nice rustic artwork. They had a very wide selection of sandwiches for lunch. I had a kahlua pulled pork and my wife a grilled portobello sandwich with a cup of soup. Both were nicely prepared - the kahlua was undetectable, but a good pork... More

Excellent food and service. Menu selections were good with a fair price. I had the shrimp and scallops and my wife had the Waterfall Beef which was excellent. The crab filo appetizer was also good. No complaints here!

Grab a seat at the bar and Bo will be right over as Lynn finds you a table.,... local outskirt restaurant that has been in town for years and moved to the center of town. Great salmon, sandwiches and salads and their sides are definitely a treat.

The Highlands enjoy our company several times a year and Wild Thyme is always one restaurant we have gone back to time and again. Tis may be the best place to dine for lunch in town for anything more than pizza or bbq. Crab cakes are exceptional along with anything they put into a puff pastry ! Our daughter fell... More
