We stayed at the Fire Mountain Inn for the weekend and the owners suggested Wolfgangs as a great place for dinner. We took their advice and were glad we did. We had a wonderful seat outside in a patio area. The server was fantastic (and I hate I cannot remember her name, but it was a two name first name). A woman came by and suggested a wonderful wine. Our food was delicious and service was perfect. The weather and ambience made for a great romantic date night.
We could not imagine a more perfect dining experience but then came the apple strudel....out of this world. We added the salted caramel ice cream.
The next day we realized we had left our credit card there. Unfortunately we were half way home. I called the restaurant and the GM, Robbie, answered the phone. He confirmed our card was there and offered to mail it to us so we did not have to drive all the way back. What fantastic customer service. They have one us over. We will return there again and again. Thanks for a wonderful evening and impeccable food and service. The Pattersons

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!

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.

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!

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!
