Perfect spot for a cozy atmosphere with top notch service and extremely well prepared meals. I had the Seafood Alfredo and my husband had the Filet Mignon and Shrimp. With both had Ceasar Salads and shared the Banana Fosters. Everything we had was excellent. My husband rated his steak amoung the top five he's ever had and we visit a... More

The food was phenomenal. Lobster bisque was delicious. High Point Oscar was great! Service was great and friendly. Love the environment and location. Some nice, quiet places to stay close by! Neat historic site!

Very unique history, and a beautiful atmosphere. A little more on the pricey side, but well worth it. The Watermelon Gazpacho was my favorite.

Took my wife here for a Valentine's Day date night and she loved it. It was my first visit and her third. She had garlic butter steak and I had the blackberry duck. It was all delicious. The grilled pound cake is AMAZING!

My wife and I spent a weekend in Sewanee and really enjoyed many things about the area. But our highlight was definitely dinner at High Point in Monteagle. It just has a great vibe when you walk in. We could see the stone fireplace and we were greeted quickly and warmly. We were seated upstairs and at first we thought... More

My wife and I ate at High Point last night. The food, coffee, latte, desert, everything was fantastic. I have never had an experience where I can honestly say I couldn't find a problem or complain. It was perfect.

We dined at High Point for the first time on a very cold evening. We were quickly seated beside the firelace in a small cozy room. There were several gluten free selections on their menu; I chose the scallops. They were cooked to perfection. I also chose the cheese grits which came out cold. The server quickly brought me a...

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.
