“Very tasty!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

We ate dinner at Wolfgang's to celebrate our anniversary. I started with the onion soup, which was quite good with lots of cheese. I had the short ribs for the entree, and they were delicious and very tender. The flavor was similar to a pot roast. My husband had a caesar salad, which was delicious and had a beautiful presentation. He also had the weiner schnitzel and enjoyed it also, though said he would prefer to try something different next time. We were too full for dessert, but our server brought out a small box of locally made chocolates for our anniversary, which was a very nice gesture. The service was very good and the atmosphere was nice as well. We enjoyed it!

“Great enjoyable fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

We went to Wolfgangs on our honeymoon. The food was very good. I will say the portions were tremendous. My wife and I could have split a main. The German food was excellent and different for Highlands. We would definitely return.

“GREAT NIGHT OUT WITH GIRLFRIENDS!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

I booked our reservation and did not tell them it was for a "mature bachelorette outing" but it was like they read our minds.....they had us in a quaint section of the restaurant to ourselves and we felt so special! The food was fantastic! Our server Da Vinci was superb and treated us like royalty. Love the place as always, but last Saturday night Wolfgang's was over the top GREAT!
Highly recommend the Crab cake, shrimp and grit platter!

“Feels like coming home ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

Haven't been able to come up since Easter when we had the most wonderful frittata, amazing! Not only is this one if our favorite restaurants ever, but I think it just feels like coming home! The food is always consistently great, service is excellent and wait staff are pleasant, fun and helpful, Robbie is always there with a hug. Where else can you find this atmosphere? Only Wolfgangs!

“50th Anniversary dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

My wife and I went to Wolfgang's for our 50th anniversary dinner last night. Both of us had the wiener schnitzel as we always do. And as usual it was outstanding. Wolfgang surprised us with a huge dessert with a sparkler on top! It was a great way to top off our dinner.
