Words cannot truly express how great the Carolina Dinning Room is!

The breakfast is simply the best you will ever have the good fortune to be able to enjoy! The buffet is out of this world! Thomas makes the worlds best omelets hands down! Angela is fantastic and she always greeted me with a smile and called me by name!

Had breakfast as part of a packaged deal, so not sure the price, but it was good quality. Egg station and plenty of bacon, sausage, pancakes, biscuits, fruit, etc. Went around 8AM on a Friday and Saturday morning, no wait. We stayed at the Carolina hotel, so it as a very convenient and quick breakfast before going out to golf.

This breakfast buffet reminded me of a recent cruise ship I was on only with fresh biscuit and pecan casserole. There was a huge selection of breads, meats (including smoke lox with appropriate accompaniments), freshly made french toast and omelets made to order. My only problem was choosing what to eat, so I ate too much. This was included in... More

Had our breakfast here every morning and I have to say that is the best buffet I've ever had.. Dinners are also excellent, Filet was perfect and sides more than enough. Be sure and try the key lime pie... the best I've ever had and I'm from S. FL and lived in key west...

I heard a lot about the breakfast buffet. Maybe because I heard so much I just expected more. Don't get me wrong it was good, just not great. At $32 per person for breakfast it should be great.

We dined in the Carolina Dining Room each day of our stay and were consistently impressed by the level of service and quality of food. The breakfast buffet had a bit of everything you may need to start your day at the spa or on the links.

Had a very good breakfast before a round of golf on No. 2. The service was outstanding as the staff was right there whenever we needed anything. The selection of food was very good and pretty good to the taste. Enjoyed our breakfast and it was a good start to the day.

We're local Pinehurst residents and visit the Carolina at least once a year. We had an excellent dinner this evening, as usual. My wife ordered the steak Diane and I asked our waiter (Cleveland) what he would recommend between the scallops, scottish salmon, and lamb chops. He jotted something down on the note pad he was holding and then turned... More

Ranging from brusque and efficient at the beginning to overly familiar and relaxed at the end service was disappointing. When the server asked a 90 year old matron what "mamma" was having for dinner, it was a bit too much. Tip included in the bill of fare. If not the waiter would have been tipped substantially less. Kitchen was slow... More

The breakfast buffet is great....known as the best breakfast in golf. I loved the food but the service was a bit spotty. At a breakfast buffet, my expectations aren't that high. Fill my OJ and coffee and take my dirty plates. I had to flag down the staff to do these small tasks. But the food and selections were wonderful.
