Took my wife here for a Valentine's Day date night and she loved it. It was my first visit and her third. She had garlic butter steak and I had the blackberry duck. It was all delicious. The grilled pound cake is AMAZING!

My wife and I spent a weekend in Sewanee and really enjoyed many things about the area. But our highlight was definitely dinner at High Point in Monteagle. It just has a great vibe when you walk in. We could see the stone fireplace and we were greeted quickly and warmly. We were seated upstairs and at first we thought... More

My wife and I ate at High Point last night. The food, coffee, latte, desert, everything was fantastic. I have never had an experience where I can honestly say I couldn't find a problem or complain. It was perfect.

We dined at High Point for the first time on a very cold evening. We were quickly seated beside the firelace in a small cozy room. There were several gluten free selections on their menu; I chose the scallops. They were cooked to perfection. I also chose the cheese grits which came out cold. The server quickly brought me a...

We moved to Monteagle a few years ago and were used to eating at nice restaurants in big cities. Since it is a very small town, we were thinking our dining selections would be limited. Some friends recommended Highpoint and we are delighted to have this so close by. The atmosphere is charming in this historic mansion, the service is... More

We have eaten at High Point Restaurant 4 times. Each time, the meal has been excellent and the atmosphere relaxing. The prices are a little high - entre prices around $35 but that includes soup or salad and a side. The soups have been great, salads fresh, steaks and fish always good. Cocktails excellent. Our wait staff has always been... More

Love this place! Took me some time to get over losing Pearl's but thank goodness for High Point. Food is excellent; prices are very reasonable and the service is consistently great. Anytime that I am at Sewanee or even just passing over Monteagle, I must stop in. They also have some outdoor dining in their garden.

Description
Built inside a 1929 mansion that presumably once was financed by Al Capone, the restaurant serves a menu of traditional gourmet dishes including Brie en Croute, Blackened Salmon Oscar and Black Thai Duck. The mansion that houses the restaurant was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997 and still features the original escape hatches and underground tunnels that were used by Capone to transfer liquor during the Prohibition Era. In 2001, High Point received the "Best Gourmet Meal in Tennessee" award from "Tennessee" magazine.
