Really nice outside seating area. We were promptly seated and our order taken. They serve local beer and well made mixed drinks. The food was fresh, hot and very tasty. We will definitely return.

My wife and I had our "annual" lunch at the Wild Thyme Gourmet on a weekday and made a noon reservation. Surprisingly, the restaurant was not very busy but all tables on the patio were full. Just a FYI, dogs (non-service) are allowed at the tables. I saw one server petting a dog and hope he washed his hands after... More

We very much enjoyed Wild Thyme. The food was really good, the service very appropriate (knowledgeable and left us alone otherwise). Great location. Interesting setting (inside, at least)...simple and relatively small. We would absolutely go back.

Upscale restaurant and menu. Within walking distance of several inns downtown. The menu had several options and even though we didn't have reservations, we were seated promptly. The food and service were excellent.

We've eaten here several times and it is always a great experience. This time we took our dog, who is diabetic and on a special diet. Dogs are allowed on the outdoor patio. The chef grilled her a chicken breast--just for her. Of course, they charged for a child's chicken plate, which was just fine by me. I appreciated that... More

After our waitress first greeted us my husband asked if they had a gluten free menu or options and she basically told us no and acted like we were inconveniencing them to have to alter anything. Throughout the questioning and ordering process she continued to make us feel like she was frustrated. We finally came up with something that would... More

Stopped in for dinner and ending up eating at the bar which was a great experience! The bartender was very friendly and informative. The food was outstanding and we look forward to going back.

We were in Highlands on a very chilly spring day and stopped into the Wild Thyme Gourmet for lunch. I recommend the crab cakes - you can have it as a salad or a baguette (my choice). The presentation and service was wonderful. We wouldn't hesitate to eat there again.

This was a nice restaurant with enjoyable outdoor seating. The food was wonderful. I recommend the shrimp and scallops on puff pastry.

This was recommended by our hotel for dinner and we weren't disappointed. From outside we were a little dubious as looks like a sports bar but once inside opens up to a spacious and stylish restaurant. It was busy and had a very pleasant buzz about it. Our server was Kelly who I have to say made the evening. She... More
