Great service, good value.
Had brunch here on a Saturday and everything about the experience was pleasant. Seated almost immediately; service delivered promptly and with a smile. When questioned about menu options, server willingly provided recommendations and checked back after the food was served to see if we were happy with the recommendation.
On this occasion, had great coffee and corned beef hash (lots of onions, mushrooms, and cheese in their version). Especially love their salads, corn bread, fried green beans and sweet potatoes, but alas, no room for everything in one meal!
Between the friendly/professional service and good food, I find it a great value for the money.
Rip off Alert!!!!!!!!! BEWARE!. I agree with the last review. This place is overpriced. It wasn't too crowded when we stopped over, early on a Saturday morning. The toppings for the food tasted funny to me and my company. I asked the waitress if she could bring out something else....she offered several things, started rattling them off. I said sure, whatever could make this better. When I got my bill, I was charged for the additional items without ever being notified. What terrible management! What terrible service to not mention that management is that stingy! To top it off, my 'large' orange juice, which of course was about 10 ounces, was $3.95. $3.95!!!! That is outrageous, even with today's economy the way it is! I could have bought a gallon for the same price, and no, it wasn't even that good! This place is such a rip off, I will tell everyone to NEVER go there. I had been there once before, for lunch, and it was just mediocre. I hope they close down because a place should not serve poor quality food and charge outrageously for it. Go to Keys or Copper Dome nearby instead if you want a good breakfast meal.
Poorly prepared food, apathetic management..
Im a fan of other BluePlate restuarants, but Highland falls behind the standards of their other locations like Longfellow of Groveland.
Stay away from highland *if they are busy*. The kitchen rushes food out and it is consistently poorly prepared. I spent 12 years growing up in a family restaurant and I can tell when the kitchen is the problem. Mind you, servers are nice and efficient at Highland, its the food that you have to watch out for.
Its also pretty pricey for what you get--which would be fine IF its good.
I experienced another lousy meal there recently and emailed the manager with a detailed description of what went wrong.
She didn't even bother to respond--which tells me she thinks they are busy enough that she doesn't have to care.
Eventually that attitude will undo the restaurant--and certainly such sloppy food will do so.
Unique meals at an affordable price..
We love this place!
Every other week my neighbor and I walk down for tea and breakfast. We have always had fantastic service, and the food is great.
For evenings with the family it's so nice to have a local place that is walking distance. They do make things just a bit different, which means that everything doesn't taste mass produced. Individual creations are the rule not the exception. Plus they do have things that a vegetarian can enjoy.
You gotta try the Sweet Potatoe Fries!. This place is so great, the staff is always chipper and they have half price bottles of wine on Tuesday. Me an the boy have yet to have a bad meal there. The breakfasts are great, the Elvis Burger rocks my world and the Sweet Potato fries are my most favorite ever. Check this place out, look for me an the boy drinking wine on Tuesdays ; )
Glittering digs make this diner look just about as good as the food tastes..
Bright green walls, sparkly seats and cherry red tabletops wake you up before you even get to the coffee, while track lighting makes the grease on your diet-killer food glisten. Post-hipsters, 30-somethings crowd the place, digging into heaping plates of food or playing cribbage over tea. The menu is a classic Twin Cities mix of comfort food done with a creative twist, like Andrew's killer banana waffle--hot, melted bananas dripping over a big waffle.
Average. We got the peirogies as an appetizer and they were great. For lunch I got the black bean flaffel sandwhich and my boyfriend got Pete's burger. I suggest not to get either of these. The bread of both of the sandwhiches were soggy throughout, and the fries are not really fries more like warm potato wedges. The black bean flaffel was nothing like real fallafel, under seasoned, and gross-looking. The sandwhich was horrible and so was his burger. I suggest if you go to get breakfast, and that is all.
Neat place, great food. Awesome food. Not like any diner I've ever been too. Many good vigetarian options. Highly recommend the Banana Pancakes, the sweet potato fries, the Green bean appitizer, and the black bean falafel (sp?). Good beer taps too, fir a diner. Great with kids.
Not what it used to be. They updated the place a couple years ago, not sure if they had new owners or what, but it's never been the same since. Pretty good food, interestingly unassuming and old trendy at the same time. Try the Tom and Bennie for brunch.
Yeah OK..... The Highland Grill is good. Good food, good menu selection. But that is about it. It is NOT great, that is for sure. And their prices are downright bad. Too expensive for food not worth it. Go if you will, but be prepared to pay way too much!
