Based on previous more positive experiences over the past months/years, we will likely give them another chance at some point, but probably not for a while. Service was OK in general, but the night began with a recently implemented no-corking policy that resulted in an...More

They have an extensive menu. We have been here several times and never had a bad meal. The atmosphere is spot on and as charming as it gets. For warm weather, there is an enchanting outdoor space.

High Point is just the best. From the salad with blackberry dressing, the appetizer of bacon, to the seafood platter, it was all FANTASTIC. And don't skip the dessert, I recommend the bananas foster and the grilled pound cake. The atmosphere is also wonderful. Service...More

We were given a gift card for this wonderful place by our son and daughter in law. The food is scrumptious and very expensive, but for a special occasion,it is amazing. Very historic as well.

There didn't seem to be an official dress code. We were dressed fairly formal, others were business casual.

Hi there. I'm not certain. But it is a very reputable place. If you call, I'm sure that would clear it up.

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.
