We used to dine here frequently when we lived in the area. Went back for a nostalgic visit on our last trip to the area. Our server was wonderful so I feel bad that I forgot his name. The chips and salsa are always great. They now have a jalapeno type ranch dip that is also served with the chips... More

We were there last evening for dinner with a group that ranged in age from newborn to, well, older - with 7 kids in the mix. Everyone found something to like on the menu and we sent a whole lot of empty plates back to the kitchen. They cater to kids with a coloring/puzzle page and lots of tasty options.... More

I travel 85% of the time and this is my favorite restaurant. It offers great drinks, food, and the service is always good. This is great for family and friend gatherings with a game room for for the kids. You can't be too noisy so no worries there.

We met a group for dinner on a Friday night. Although they couldn't find our group's name on the reservation list when we checked in. Others didn't have a problem. In any case, my husband and I had margaritas at the bar while we waited for others to arrive. I thought my mango margarita was good, but husband didn't think... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us here on TripAdvisor. Please accept our sincere apologies regarding that which were some of the "lows" that you mentioned. The Lobster and Shrimp enchiladas should certainly live up to their name, and have noticeable amounts of both lobster and shrimp. There is no excuse for a lack of lobster... More

It was okay. Wasn't too crowded for the Packer game so that was a plus. Our waiter was very good, but the food was just average. Don't get their desserts. They tasted like they had freezer burn.

I had a ground beef burrito, two others had a chicken tortilla and all were very good. The place was modestly busy, but a food came quite quickly. They welcome you with a basket of chips and salsa, no charge and has a very broad menu from burgrers, mexican steaks but small offerings on seafood.

Haven't been here in awhile and the food is still great and the margaritas were very good. Went for an early dinner and the service was excellent and friendly. Hope I don't wait so long to go back. Coconut Shrimp was to die for.

Hi Joe, Thanks for taking time to drop us a line, and leave us such a glowing review! I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed the Coconut Shrimp! We actually just added Coconut Shrimp Tacos to the menu, so maybe give those a try next time you stop in. We really appreciate your continued support, and can't wait to... More

I have been to the Highland House a number of times. The food is always good, as is the service. The Los Cabos chicken is awsome!
