Step back in time in Pinehurst's most expansive dining room, offering breakfast and dinner daily. Executive Chef Thierry Debailleul's amazing menu features hand-selected aged beef and signature dry seasoning rub for our steaks and chops. Menus change seasonally, invoking the fresh flavors of the area and our local farmers' picks. The legendary breakfast buffet is known as the best in golf, and with good reason.

Excellent food and Service

We were at the Carolina on business and had 8 in our group. We received excellent service and the food was great. Brian Couey helped us with our wine choices and was very knowledgeable and friendly.

After great specialty cocktails on the porch, we moved inside to celebrate some more and had dinner in the dining room of The Carolina. First we shared an appetizer of pate, cheese, & meats followed by pan seared chicken and filet mignon. The food and service are outstanding. The wait staff is attentive and highly professional. They strive to please... More

Great food and great quality! Surprisingly different taste combinations that turned out unique and satisfying. Fourth of July weekend was busy and service was good but a little slow.

We always dine in the Carolina Dining Room when staying at the Resort. Food is excellent..especially the steaks. And the best dessert is the Brownie. Service has always been great. Will continue to dine here every opportunity we have. Live pianist plays during both breakfast and dinner. Nice touch.

They charge a $25 corkage but the wine list was actually very good and we didn't need to bring our own. Room is the same setup for the buffet breakfast (which is very good) as it is for an "elegant" dinner. Service was fantastic. Mirna you made our evening. Food was ok. Not much for a vegetarian but I did... More

Went for dinner. Seemed like the staff may have been overwhelmed with the crowd that night. They basically had one waitress serving the entire half of the dining room we were seated in--she did a fantastic job, but for what's theoretically a 4 or 5 star establishment--they were understaffed. Had about 8 steak options, as well as standard pork, chicken,... More
