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.

Very accommodating to our large party. I had the Bolognese with truffle oil that hit the spot. Bread was hot and fresh, great selection of beers. I'm sure all the non-carbs were great too.

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.
