The Signature Dining Experience at Highland Springs

Fresh, Flavorful Dining

If part of your ideal retirement includes enjoying fresh, delicious, chef-prepared meals in the company of good friends, then Highland Springs in Dallas is the place for you. The Signature Dining menus in our on-site restaurants feature an impressive selection of at least 25 items at a time. Whether you choose a familiar favorite, a regional specialty, or one of the weekly chef specials, everything is cooked to order and served to your specifications.

While every Highland Springs apartment home includes a modern kitchen, once you sample Signature Dining, you may find yourself spending less time over the stove.


A Social Atmosphere

Great dining isn’t just about the food; it’s about the company. We offer restaurant-style seating, so you always have the opportunity to meet new people and enjoy plenty of lively conversation.

Happy hour is the perfect opportunity to mix and mingle. Enjoy a cold beer, glass of wine, or classic cocktail as you chat with old friends and new neighbors alike. 

A Dedicated Team to Serve You

Highland Springs hires only the best and most passionate team members at every level—from our professionally trained executive chef and our multiple sous chefs to our skilled culinary and waitstaff and beyond. The entire team works in harmony to bring you an extraordinary experience every time you dine. Entrées are prepared at the moment of service with fresh ingredients and painstaking attention to detail and presentation.

The dining organization is overseen by a full-time dining director who serves as part of the community’s leadership team. Dining leaders work closely with the Highland Springs Resident Advisory Council to ensure that residents have a valued voice. 


The dining is fantastic. If one night you don’t feel like having a sit-down dinner, you can run into the café and bring your meal home.

A Variety of Dining Venues

Highland Springs features four distinctive dining experiences for your convenience and enjoyment.

Chisholm’s Restaurant

Enjoy first-class, fine dining with a casual ambience at Chisholm’s. Our knowledgeable staff will help you choose from a variety of enticing entrées, including fresh fish, prime cuts of meat, and delicious poultry.

Fireside Grille

This welcoming venue features our delicious made-to-order Signature Burger, hand-tossed pizza, fresh pasta, and homestyle market selections. From the abundant salad bar to the delicious ice cream shakes, Fireside Grille has something to satisfy everyone in your dining party.

Reunion Grille

If you’re in the mood for hearty food in a warm, intimate setting, Reunion Grille is the place. Choose from juicy bone-in steaks, thick chops, and loaded baked potatoes, as well as a variety of fish and poultry selections. Your server can suggest the perfect glass of wine to complement your entrée.

The Marketplace and Bistro

Start your morning with a fresh-baked muffin, breakfast sausage biscuit, made-to-order scrambled eggs and bacon, or a homemade breakfast burrito. The Marketplace and Bistro also offers fresh soups and salads for lunch, as well as “Chisholm’s for the Taking,” a rotating mix of grab-and-go entrées from Chisholm’s Restaurant. 


Meals on the Go

Too busy for a sit-down meal? No problem. Some restaurants offer carryout options, so you can grab a hot and delicious meal on the run. A variety of snacks are also available at the convenience store.


Flexible Dining Options to Match Your Lifestyle

Your Monthly Service Package includes a flexible dining plan you can use in any campus restaurant. Treat your family to a leisurely Sunday brunch at Chisholm’s or grab a quick bite at the casual Cotton Belt Café. Carryout options are also available if you’d prefer a quiet night in your apartment home.

Choose the plan that’s right for you:

  • Traditional Plan: Also called “Meal of the Day,” this option allows you to receive a meal credit equal to the number of days in the month to be used at any of the on-site restaurants. It’s perfect for those who don’t want to cook every meal.

  • 20-Meal Plan: If you frequently dine off campus or enjoy cooking in your apartment home, the 20 meal plan is a good value. It includes 20 meals per month in any Highland Springs restaurant for a reduced Monthly Service Package fee.

If your eating habits change, that’s OK. You have the option to switch your meal plan each quarter, offering even more flexibility.
