Food was okay, but nothing really special. I had the Bavarian Sampler, and my wife had Crawfish Etoufee. Neither were bad, just not anything special.

I ordered surf/ turf the lobster was good the filet had absolutely no flavor. I dont use steak sauce but i had to dip my steak in my butter and salt and pepper it myself. The asparagus had no flavor either. The waiter was great the cake was great too.

So yummy!!!! The dining room was beautiful and simple. We were seated and given menus/wine list. I started with a Pomegranate Martini, delish. I had the onion soup and my husband the Caesar! Both great. Hands down best Entree was my husbands BBQ shrimp over cheese grits with collards. I have the crab cake and pecan shrimp. Crab cake was not my fav, shrimp was fantastic! The grits y’all I mean the grits were amazing!! Ended the meal with Creek brûlée so good! All the staff was super attentive and kind. Our server was super busy and no one left us to feel ignored. For those that always ask about dress code. My husband wore a sports coat but not all the men did. You definitely did not see casual clothing, more business casual

The whole experience was very good. The food was great , loved our waitress , whom we found out had waited on us when we lived in Hilton Head. The only downside was the table was beside a door that was used to get outside and waitresses used to get our meal from the kitchen via the outside door. ( kinda a strange way to get to the kitchen)! It was very cold when the door was used by the staff , and a customer got three phone calls that he HAD to take by going out the door. Why not use the just as close FRONT DOOR ?
Still , we enjoyed the meal and plan on going back the last week of Feb , when we go back to Highlands , rapidly becoming one of our favorite places to get away.

Wolfgang's is always great and this visit was no exception. Perfect place on a cold night. Short rib was melt in your mouth tender and full of flavor. Collards were the best I have ever had anywhere. Pork shank was incredible and enough meat for 3 people. Apple cobbler the best. Always try to have a meal at Wolfgang's when visiting HIghlands.

This dinner was to celebrate my wife's birthday. When we checked in, the hostess immediately wished my wife a Happy Birthday, which was a pleasant surprise. We were taken to a quiet, intimate table, waited on by a pleasant, attentive server, and provided with a glass of wine. We both ordered the salmon special, which was outstanding, along with garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus. Finally, my wife was presented with a complimentary dessert with a sparking candle to top off the evening. Very, very pleased with the entire experience!

We were escorted to the back dining area which was cold and uncomfortable - even after they lit the gas fireplace.
The food was very good and the service was good.
On our way out, my wife went to the ladies room. The floor was very wet and slippery - no sign up to be careful. She almost went down. Why would they wait to mop at peak dining time???

We always love Wolfgang's because the food is wonderful, and the atmosphere is a bit more relaxed and comfortable than that other popular place in The Highlands! The Wedge was delightful, and so was the crabcakeand shrimp, the lavender salmon and the peanut butter pie! We had a wonderful evening there in August when we were able to sit outside in the lovely courtyard. It was too cold this time, but we had a nice evening downstairs!

I was celebrating my birthday. I thought it was odd I wasn't offered a complimentary dessert (although, they did comp the one my dining partner ordered, since I didn't order one). I received a sparkler in half a strawberry. Then I saw a beautiful piece of cake with a sparkler in it that would serve a couple of people go by to another table. I asked about it and was told by their server that "they were locals and owned a business in town." Hmmm! When I complained, I was brought a 4 pc. box of Kilwin chocolates. So, all in all, it turned out fine. Actually, it turned out to be very funny.

We always go to Wolfgang every time we are in Highlands area.
I love the schnitzel and my husband loves their salmon with Israeli couscous. The selection of wines by the glass is very good.
Ask to sit in the original dining room which is in the back down a few stairs It is small and beautiful with a fireplace.

It was OK but not fabulous. It is not a place I would want to eat at again, there are better restaurants in Highlands.
