Very crowded and fun. You need to go early to get a table, but after getting a drink we were seated fairly soon at 630. Interesting and eclectic menu. The food was good and some items were very good. Good comfort food.

Highland Kitchen does *not* take reservations AND they will only seat you when *every* member of your party is present. GOOD LUCK!

They have Sunday Brunch 11-2:30. The menu is at their website. I have had the brunch many times and it is extraordinary. It's well known and very busy so get there early if you can.
