This place is the classic story of a bar, trying to be a restaurant, which then tries to do too much. First trip I made the mistake of ordering the seafood enchilada. Boy, I have never needed a toilet faster in my life. The food...More

Great Enchilada, tasty Margarita's and abundant chips and salsa. Able to sit in quiet area as we were house hunting, so paperwork was included. 4th visit and have enjoyed all of them.

Seated punctually, Service with a smile, Food always served fast and always great! Hard to find a complaint. Been coming here since they opened years ago and subtle changes have enhance the food and service to keep the venue popular and contemporary .

The service was amazing. This server knows the true meaning of customer service. The restaurant is not very clean. The bathroom was disgusting. Food was marginal/average. I do not recommend this place...except the server named Katie was exceptional!!

Margaritas are awesome here and the atmosphere is fun. Standard flavors and a rotating flavor of the month (currently Super Cherry) Tuesdays are Taco tuesdays - $2.00 tacos - service is quick and friendly - chips and salsa are always at the ready

We tried Highland House after a long hiatus and found that things hadn't changed much. The restaurant is painted in bright colors and the interior consists of several different rooms. Similar to other Mexican restaurants, you get chips and salsa automatically. The chips and salsa...More

Thanks for taking the time to review. I am disappointed to hear that we fell short of expectations during your recent visit. Serving sub-par food is never something we want to do, and of course, we never want our service to be lackluster. I do...More
