TJ's Highland Steakhouse
Excellent restaurant with fantastic food and service
Overall of everything was magnificent! Wished they could have been able to honor a Visa gift card towards our bill.
Food was very good and the staff were great. Arrived early but they worked us in.
A Scottish theme park is called to mind rather than the elegance expected of fine dining. A great clash of decorating ideas; 16th century royalty, shrines to the birth of golf, clashing wood and tartans, highland cattle all in one eyeful. The boisterous bar open to the dining rooms was immediately evident on arrival. The noise level made conversation barely achievable. The staff definitely try hard, but fall short, they are quite chatty, to the point of obtrusiveness. We needed service several times through the evening as our server was engaged deeply in conversation at other tables. Offering recommendations when asked is appropriate, but an extensive review of the merits of her favorite dishes and libations with every table is over the top. We had basic lapses in service such as failures to provide steak knives, refill water, replenish popover service, and then being brought a soiled knife. A manager delivered our entrees, hovered next to me with the plates and removed my appetizer plate holding it mere inches from my face while serving another. I had to lean away to keep my nose out of it as he bent over to place the plate. After the scripted confirmation on the doneness level of our steaks, all of them were prepared well under what we ordered. Medium rare is definitely not cool and blue. No one came to check on our satisfaction, we had tired of finding service staff by that point and chose to eat them as is. A Delmonico steak with several bands of tough connective tissue was certainly unexpected at a steakhouse of this reputation. High points were a lovely Cajun lobster sauce with the broiled crab cake. I would have liked more crust on the crab cake, a bit more time under the salamander would go a long way. The lobster bisque was good, not great. Parmesan truffle fries suffered from either sitting too long before being served or not being fried at high enough temperature, many were soggy and limp. After 3 courses with several misses, we passed on dessert.
My wife and I live near Milwaukee, and we believe TJ's Highland Steakhouse can hold its own against any steakhouse in the metro area.
Food was fantastic
Service was good
1st time at T. J.’s and will definitely be back
Outstanding service in a very quiet and regal atmosphere. Enjoyable for business meal or a nice night out with a loved one.
TJ's Highland is by far the best steakhouse we've been to in Wisconsin and also the best restaurant in greater Oshkosh. The ambiance is exceptional, the bar has excellent offerings from far away places, and the food is unmatched.
This is a fine dining restaurant! Scottish Highlands, golf club decor- beautiful, quiet, comfortable. Great choice for a special occasion - Anniversary, Pop the question, or whatever...
Everything was awesome. Such an amazing experience.
We were there during Restaurant Week. Special offerings.
Steak melted in your mouth.
Sat next to a table of 16, we were two. A bit noisy.
Regular menu seemed a bit pricey, we do live in 'fly over zone'!!!!!
Will give it another once over again at regular prices and evaluate then.
Second time eating here and this time was for restaurant week. Great choices on the menu and I chose the filet. It was undercooked and had to send it back. And the dessert was a bit dry. Service was good but a little drawn out this time. Over two hours which is too long for me. I did find out the normal chef was not in the kitchen so I’m thinking this is why it wasn’t the 5 stars we had last time we ate here. Still highly recommend it.
Friend get together and Oshkosh restaurant week.
Birthday dinner. Was restaurant week so there were a lot of people and a bit longer wait than normal. Wasn’t a problem for us as we were not in a hurry. We will definitely be going back. Nice to see such a great restaurant venue in the Oshkosh area.
Décor is beautiful. Food was excellent. Service was very good. Went the TJ's for Oshkosh Restaurant week specials. Had not been to TJ's before our visit. The remodel was beautiful with the Scottish theme. I had the petite filet special and my wife had the salmon special. Both were excellent. Appetizers were equally good. We both had the tequila sunrise cake dessert, which was awesome.. Would recommend TJ's for regular dining as well.
After being referred to dine here I was excited to try it out with my wife. Overall the service was great, food was ok, and wine was way overpriced. We ordered a $150 bottle of wine thinking we were going to get a great bottle but it drank like a $25 bottle. The steak was good but not great and overpriced in my mind. Oysters and crab cakes were great. All in all I'd probably not done here again, but would recommend to others to try out. For a $300 meal I expected a lot more.
Oshkosh does not have a fine dining restaurant like this! Beautiful redecorated interior of the Scottish Highlands, very cozy, warm ambiance, great for a date, fancy occasion, special event or just a night out.
The aged steaks are to die for, OMG, the aromas! The N.Y. Strip, was very tender and succulent. Lobster tail was fresh and had a rich flavor. We always get the 1903 Cesar Salad, to start, fun presentation, it comes standing in a parmesan fricco, with Cesar anchovy dressing. Tonight we got the oysters on the half shell, they were incredibly fresh, decadent and delicious, unlike anything, I've had in the Fox Valley! We'll definitely be going coming here again! Thanks Chef England! :)
Chef Mike and the team did another outstanding job!
Restaurant was beautiful and very comfortable if the steak wasn’t so salty I would come back lots of money for a steak that was almost un eatable told waitress but no compensation at all🤦♀️
Excellent experience. This place rivals the finest steakhouses in Chicago. Everything was cooked to perfection!
We love this place. The food and service has been outstanding every time we come. It’s our new favorite restaurant for special occasions
So good we ate there two nights in a row. Steak and Seafood fantastic
Food quality and quantity was over the top. Wedge salad was huge, Seared Ahi was perfect and the seafood pasta specialty was outstanding. Even though we don't eat steak the menu had enough for us to choose from although the wine list might be a little pricey. Great meal!
I think someone in the kitchen forgot our mushrooms and sides, so about ten minutes after the overpriced porterhouse arrived, did we have everything for our meal. It was still delicious and great service but for the price I expected 5 stars and was disappointed.
We were looking for a nice dinner that had a little more quiet atomsphire so we could hear our conversations with our friends without having to talk at the top of our lungs. Saturday night everyone had a 2 hour wait. Read the reviews of this restaurant and gave it a try. So glad we did! We will definitely be going again. Top quality menu, phenomenal steak selections and the bartender hit it out of the park. The presentation of all the dishes were exceptional and the flavor of our food was outstanding. It was Vegas steak House quality. Decor is a little Scottish (hence being on a golf course), but very cozy atomsphire but plenty of room for privacy or large groups. Even has a more casual eating area by the bar.
Great Steakhouse. Excellent service, nice selection of wines. The green bean and mushroom side dishes are really good.
I've had steak several times and each time the medium rare order is rare in the middle third of the steak and the outer sides are too done and has to be further cooked.
I'm a steak lover. I would not find this at the Roxy at a substantially lower price and better value.
Please correct this issue as I wish to patronize you as a customer.
Excellent food, service and ambiance. I will recommend and return.
The food was good, but not the best I've had. I had the salmon. Although it was good, I've had better at several places, for a lot less money. The server did not get everyone's order correct at my table (table of 7). No one at the table had steak, so I am not sure how the steaks are.
Food is ok way over hyped. Gorgeous interior that is rich and warm. Service excellent throughout the meal. Terribly noisy throughout the meal.
Took a little break from TJ’s Highland Steakhouse after quite a few visits after opening. Looks like they’ve been working hard to work out the new restaurant glitches, and we were very happy with the improved service and food prep improvements. A nice Saturday night crowd shows that TJ’s is growing in popularity, and with food & service like we experienced recently, success will follow. Nice Job!
We truly enjoyed our date night together at TJ's Highland. The restaraunt and bar are relaxing, cozy, and the food was excellent. We enjoyed drinks at the bar followed by wine at our dinner table. We split the tenderloin for 2 with ceaser salad and lobster mac n cheese and we were very pleased with all of it. The staff was helpful in making our food and wine selections and provided timely friendly service. A great place to unwind and converse with one another. We will be excited to return!
Excellent service food and atmosphere.
Awesome food and dining experience, Allie our server was excellent and very customer centric . Chef gets excellent marks for his creation, overall it was an excellent dining experience. Can���t wait for my next visit
Great food, great staff!
Waitress very knowledgeable, made the evening enjoyable.
Vito and chef made it a warm and memorable experience
And the meal was delicious.
Will definitely recommend TJ’s Highlander highly..
Amazing place, impeccable food. Unique options. Loved the atmosphere and the decor. The meal was worth every penny. The waitstaff was friendly and accommodating without being over the top and I didn’t feel rushed at all. The seating was comfortable and the timing of the meal was great. Enjoyed the music, even though it might not be everyone’s cup of tea. Would definitely return. Best steak I’ve ever had.
I took my wife to dinner for our 39th wedding anniversary on a Thursday night. We arrived at the restaurant at 6:45 which was our reservations we were seated immediately which was great there were only two other couples in the entire restaurant. Our waitress came to the table immediately and took drink orders and we also ordered a couple of hors d'oeuvres we ordered a bottle of wine and I ordered a cocktail. The bottle of wine arrived within minutes my cocktail didn't show up for 25 minutes after we had already received our hors d'oeuvres. I had ordered a ketel one straight up chilled which arrived in a water glass a little disappointing we had ordered our dinner and salads. The time between the hors d'oeuvres and the dinner was quite lengthy as they brought out our steaks I mentioned to our waitress we never received are salads I was told they were on the way I mentioned I no longer wanted it and they offered to box it up for me. I had ordered a bone-in ribeye that showed up on a plate with no garnish of any kind and was kind of falling apart my wife and ordered strip steak which one she cut into it was completely raw she hadn't ordered it medium. We call the waitress over to inform her that the steak was raw took it back to the kitchen and brought it back 5 minutes later when we cut into it again it was still raw so the second time it went back to the kitchen for another 5 minutes well my steak got cold waiting for my wife's it finally made it out cooked correctly but totally charred on the outside. Someone came to our table I'm assuming he was the manager and offered us a free dessert for our troubles however the salad which I told him I did not want because it came out too late I was still charged for. The decor is beautiful however if they want to remain a high-end steak House they're going to have to step up their game in both the bar end and the kitchen I don't mind paying a premium price for good food and service however this was a total letdown.
Pretty place overall, friendly enough hostesses and wait staff but not super polished and professional like I would expect somewhere of this caliber. Smaller menu and no one talked to us about specials or steak toppers or anything. Did not like the Lobster bisque or lobster thermidor - both were not very warm and had strange flavors like perhaps they were scorched. Underdone steak was quickly rectified in a totally polite manner, sides were good but entrees themselves were very underwhelming for the price. We won't be back anytime soon.
Lovely atmosphere and the food was excellent. Would recommend for a dinner date or just a drink at the bar for the ambiance.
