We went last weekend and took some important guests , we always know they will be impressed by Wolfgangs. We almost always sit I the from Bistro area and have a birds eye view of the bar and hostess station. I payed such close attention this night because I had read some reviews here that were poor. All I saw was a professional friendly staff and patrons enjoying their meals. The Chef came out as always and greeted everyone asking how their meals were, we felt special. Our guests felt special and we all left with full tummies ! If you need a suggestion on what to eat: the humus appetizer and pecan encrusted shrimp are my favorites. If you want a lighter meal, the new salmon flat bread is incredible . If you really want to live like a king try the lamb trio !!!! Any of these can be paired with a wine by a woman on staff, European I think...and such a wine expert. I think her name is Anna? Anyway, don't let the few bad reviews scare you away from this place or you will miss out on a fantastic meal !

Wolfgangs is a delightful restaurant. I have been many times and it is always spot on. I like the lamb but have also had crabcakes in the past and enjoyed them. The atmosphere is fun, service excellent and the wine list has great selections.

Wolfgang's is downtown right on main street. Delicious food, very nice atmosphere. We sat outside on a comfortable (almost cool) evening. Outdoor seating is in a very nice courtyard (ask for It when you make your reservations) with little water features, lots of shade and flowers. Service was excellent; server was there when appropriate, but did not hover or interfere with conversation. The specials we had, Pork tenderloin with black bean salsa and Red Snapper topped with shrimp, crab and lobster were excellent. Portion size was perfect. Chef Wolfgang came by the tables as we were finishing our meal, which was a very nice touch.

We visit the Highlands each year and find Wolfgangs to be the restaurant we go to our first night.

The short rib is to die for and they always have great wine selections.

The entire staff is always working hard and have great attitudes.....including the owners who like to help make the experience wonderful.

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
