Beautiful home with ties to Al Capone made the setting interesting. Charming rooms complete with fireplaces. Staff was excellent. My husband had a wonderful steak; I had a very special salad topped with grilled peaches. We will definitely be going back.

Very cozy atmosphere in a beautiful home on the national register of historic places.. Food was exceptional . My favorite part was the summer salad with grilled peaches, wow!!! Rolls were outstanding. My husband said his rib eye was the best he had ever had.

I'm sorry to hear about how you were treated on Sunday, Chuck. I'm not sure about our booked reservations for that day, but we would never condone our employees to treat our customers rudely, reservation or not. I will find out who you spoke with and handle it so it doesn't happen again. I hope that you would give us... More

Such exquisite succulence! The food is indeed a tad pricey, but it is totally worth every last coin in your pocket. I visited this restaurant on a first date with a gentleman who was classy enough to choose this place. Every single bite melted on my tongue, cooked to perfection with savory flavors.

Description
Built inside a 1929 mansion that presumably once was financed by Al Capone, the restaurant serves a menu of traditional gourmet dishes including Brie en Croute, Blackened Salmon Oscar and Black Thai Duck. The mansion that houses the restaurant was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997 and still features the original escape hatches and underground tunnels that were used by Capone to transfer liquor during the Prohibition Era. In 2001, High Point received the "Best Gourmet Meal in Tennessee" award from "Tennessee" magazine.
