My husband and I decided to get away for the day. We chose Wolfgangs for dinner. The food, service, everything was top notch. We will definitely be back.

“Excellent personal service and an extraordinary menu keeps bringing us back to Wolfgang's each time we visit Highlands.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

The staff could not be more accommodating, even to the point of making sure our sheltie pup is welcome and the heaters are warming the patio for us on those cool Highlands nights. The sommelier offers great wine advice. My husband loved the porcini crusted Seabass. Wolfgang's is definitely our very favorite Highlands Restaurant.

“Two thumbs up!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2014

Without fail, I make my way to Wolfgang's every time I visit Highlands, North Carolina. The staff goes over and beyond to make it a wonderful experience each time, and the menu is out of this world. The atmosphere was amazing, especially the outside dining area. If you're looking for a great night out with friends and/or family, Wolfgang's is where you'll want to go. I'm so excited for my next visit!

“Exceptional Exoerience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

My wife and I visited Wolfgang's this past weekend and we are so glad we did. The experience is nothing short of exceptional in all areas. We were seated immediately, server was at the table right away, and our meal came to us quickly. Food selection at Wolfgang's is very broad and there should be no trouble finding something for every taste. We both tried seafod. I had the red snapper special and my wife ordered the salmon from the menu. Both were delicious. Wolgang's prices are not cheap but the food, service, and atmosphere made the meal worth every penny.

I can't wait to return

“Fine dining at its best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014 via mobile

An above average restaurant with a unexpected menu.

We went to Wolfgang's for our anniversary after hearing of this exceptional restaurant. It will not disappoint anyone wanting the utmost fine dining experience.

There may be a few other restaurants in the area with higher ratings on here. I honestly have to say they must be having staff right reviews to heighten their ratings. Wolfgang's - there is none finer.
