Clearly the best gourmet restaurant within this beautiful, mountainous region and while also the most expensive food, worth every penny. This restaurant has an incredible history as a hidden Al Capone speakeasy. The menu is dominated by seafood and steak...and combinations thereof. While one might...More

There didn't seem to be an official dress code. We were dressed fairly formal, others were business casual.

Description
Built inside a 1929 mansion that presumably once was financed by Al Capone, the restaurant serves a menu of traditional gourmet dishes including Brie en Croute, Blackened Salmon Oscar and Black Thai Duck. The mansion that houses the restaurant was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997 and still features the original escape hatches and underground tunnels that were used by Capone to transfer liquor during the Prohibition Era. In 2001, High Point received the "Best Gourmet Meal in Tennessee" award from "Tennessee" magazine.
