Really wanted to like this place but didn't... From the glowing reviews on Yelp to the ridiculous queue before this place even opens, I expected much more. We ordered the hush puppies as appetizers which were really average and overpriced. We got the dirty bird and the shrimps and grits for main course. The dirty bird was okay, but I've had better, and the shrimps and grits were just not good; the consistency and flavors just did not mix well together. This would be a two star rating but I give it an extra star for the live music during brunch.

BUFFALO BRUSSEL SPROUTS. The goat stew was also geat. Good environment, stellar service and another word used to describe great tins, such as exemplary.

Very good service, even on a crazy Friday night. The restaurant was SO loud, though, in part because of the music. Also wasn't quite as blown away by the food as I was hoping, given all the hype I've heard from friends. Overall worth going back to for some good food.

Absolutely amazing. Reminds me of the best parts of Seattle - quirky foods, reasonable prices, and ever-flowing beverages. You win, Highland Kitchen. I will wait in line for you.

Came here on a Tuesday night to get some food and drinks and was surprised they didn't take reservations. I had been here once before for brunch and the wait was long so I wasn't surprised that the place would be full. The host was friendly and gave us a wait time for 20-30 minutes for 3, but luckily it was much faster then that and we were seated in about 10-15 minutes. The menu has a few vegetarian options and we started with the mozzarella fritters which were really good. Super light and airy and didn't feel greesy or heavy at all. The dipping sauce was a bit sweet, but overall an excellent app. I got the grilled cheese for my meal and that was really good too. The perfect amount of bread and cheese and the portion sizes were really big in general. I really liked this place and would come back often.
