Relaxed, refreshing dining experience. The food was excellent, but especially the North Carolina Trout. Perfectly cooked, visually appealing and excellent mild taste. Quality service. We will definitely return.

We love eating at Wolfgang's...great variety of menu choices, even for me...who is finicky. My husband and I enjoy having the choice of eating indoors or out. Great service as well! Wolfgang is so gracious, as he comes by your table to greet and thank you for your business. We eat here often when in Highlands.

Highlands is one of our favorite places to visit in North Carolina, but this trip we only came back for one night and that was to be able to eat at Wolfgang's. I had been several years since we were here and Wolfgang's did not disappoint.

I had been thinking about the Short Ribs for days prior to arrival. I had the single rib and it seemed even larger than the first time. It is one the house specialties and had ample meat that just fell off the bone. That was preceded with the Lobster Bisque which as likewise exceptional. My wife had the stuffed North Carolina Trout, and what a treat that was...just excellent, and ample. We enjoyed the strudel for dessert which was okay. Wine options were ample and service was, as always, excellent. The fresh bread and butter was outstanding. We will be back as soon as we can, hopefully a lot sooner than this time.

We always enjoy eating the lamb chops and enjoying the colorful guests in the bistro! And, the dining room is lovely, the food exquisite. One year we were trapped in this restaurant during a hail storm. Couldn't have asked for a better experience!
