We knew from the reviews it would be a wonderful meal and we were not disappointed at all. I had the rainbow trout and my husband had the red fish. Both were excellent. My grandson enjoyed a filet from the children's menu! Talk about getting a great meal for price! Then we all enjoyed a great dessert as well. My... More

Having enjoyed the service and food previously for a dozen years. I chose High Point last Subsay evening to entertain an important NYC client. When we arrived we Saw a sparce parking lot and plenty of empty tables. Imagine my shock to be greeted by a rude, crass Hostess who immediately informed us that "we don't have no tables; we're...

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. I ordered the steak and shrimp, and... More

The food was outstanding and served in generous portions! We shared the lobster tail appetizer. Dinner selections came with salad and vegetable. The salads were huge! I had the glazed salmon.

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.
