“We liked everything but the food”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

This place is probably a blast in the summer when you can sit outside and have a few drinks. You won't know/care that the food is pretty meh. Fish tacos were over-seasoned and tasted really fishy. Ribs were chewy instead of tender. The skinny fries were good and our daughter liked her corn dog. I did, too, better than my tacos. Service was friendly and attentive. Beer was cold.

“Nice spot for lunch on a summer like September day”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

Stopped for a late lunch, hoping for attentive service to keep on schedule. Pleasantly surprised with the nice view of the river. Plenty of choices on the menu, including some that offered healthy options. Service was prompt, food was well prepared and a step above the chains. Oddly, the most memorable was the fresh chips served with salsa and chips served to each table. They were light and nicely seasoned. My first visit, but I will keep this place in mind for my nice trip through town.

“Average at best”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

Listen- the atmosphere here is cool.....outdoor seating near the Harbor. That's about all this place has going for it. Service was average and the food was something I could've whipped up in a few minutes. In fact a few of us ordered Fajitas and the chicken literally tasted like it had been frozen and thawed out of our meal. Overall not bad, probably a good place to go if you wanna hang outside or if you have a bunch of kids with you but don't expect a GREAT meal. Average at best.....

“very good.”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

I have been here several times and always had a nice meal. Fun ambiance and good service. I had a salad that was fabulous- the southwest caesar I believe it was called. Great place to go for a lighter meal (for me) and something filling (for my husband) after at day in the sun- so many choices!

“Happy at Highland after Golf!”
Reviewed 25 August 2013 via mobile

We loved the outdoor dining in a great location overlooking the river. The food was delicious with their own flair on Mexican food plus much more on menu ! I had the beef & cheese enchiladas with beans & rice. So tasty! 4 of us really enjoyed our meals & the prices were reasonable. The chips & salsa were great with a little secret spice on top. The guys got dessert & loved them! Key lime pie- not too tart & tasty. Blueberry cheesecake by Cheesecake Factory. Maybe 5 miles from Kohler golf courses. We will definitely return if ever in area!
