I love the old school vibe and clubby atmosphere of Highland Tap and it's even better in the years since they went smoke free. Their dining room is great when you're looking for a quiet meal. Burgers and steaks are excellent and their salad with warm bacon dressing is to die for. And then they've got the bar area which is a little bit 70s dive bar but always offers great service, plenty of TVs and helpful staff to keep you happy for hours on end.

Enter into a dark cave with the smell of old beer and cigarettes .....that was the ambience of this restaurant which charged very high prices for thin fatty steaks, uninteresting ,run of the mill bread, and knife cut salad.
I am shocked that people think this restaurant is good. Maybe in years gone by but the food was subpar for the high prices. The wine was served in glasses designed to survive the dishwasher . In a restaurant whose entrees are in the $25-$35 range, this is sad
I would NEVER recommend this restaurant.

Of the many bars that line North Highland Ave, Highland Tap seems to be the most unintentionally retro - harkening back images of 80s-era Atlanta denizens stepping down the stairs into a Cheers-like square wooden bar, or posting up in one of the booths lining the masoned walls. In the dining room, serious no-nonsense steaks have been pleasing three-martini businessmen for years - no doubt priming the belly for a night of hard booze to follow. The clientele here ranges from regulars to suburban visitors, slightly more mature than, say, Neighbors or Hand in Hand, but still very much on the prowl. The heavy-handed pours go well into the good night, and the friendly bartenders behind the sunken bar do a swell job of getting to you in a hurry.

We've been here before, and didn't really care for a bunch of appetizers we'd ordered the first time (risotto baIIs is the only one I can remember). The burger was good I think though.
Last weekend, our second trip, we ordered mussels as an app, and they were delicious. How can little succulent morsels of seafood floating in a garlic cream sauce with buttery garlic bread to sop it all up not be good? I'm sure it's possible, but not here.
Next we had a steak salad and the prime rib (queen cut). I was expecting a little tiny cut, but this thing was huge. And awesome. And it was the perfect done-ness (med rare).
The salad wasn't anything special, but wasn't bad either. The steak on it was a little tough, but cooked perfectly.
I ordered a cosmo, which was $12. They bring it out in two parts: the martini glass filled with cosmoliciousness, and a brandy sniffer type glass filled with ice and another small bottle filled with more martini (so you can refill later). I think all together it prolly equals 1.5 martinis since the glass is really small.
Anyways, the prime rib was the star of the show, and we'll be back just for it (and beer next time perhaps?)
