Voted the best place for dining in Highlands by Southern Living Magazine, Wolfgang's is the go-to place for locals and visitors looking for upscale eclectic food in a relaxed and rustic setting. Former Executive Chef of the Brennan Family of Commanders Palace, Chef Wolfgang Green and his wife Mindy provide welcoming hospitality and a seasonal menu complemented by an extensive, highly curated wine list. Guests gather in The Wine Bistro to socialize over light bites and premium libations amid mountain ambiance with a cozy fireplace. The historic home that is now Wolfgang’s also features a fireside dining room, private dining room, intimate wine cellar dining, a Main-Street patio, and alfresco seating in an enchanting garden area. Wolfgang’s guests feast on flavors from New Orleans and Germany, along with contemporary American dishes including prime steaks and fresh seafood. Some favorites include Escargots au Gratin; Cajun BBQ Shrimp over asiago grits and Andouille-scented collard greens; Veal Medallions “Wolfgang” on Cabernet sauce with sautéed crawfish and béarnaise; Fresh North Carolina Mountain Trout Oscar with shellfish mélange and béarnaise; and Filet Mignon grilled to perfection and served with Cabernet sauce. Wolfgang’s also welcomes groups and private parties—including wedding events—and they host several wine dinners throughout the year.
