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.

What a serene and exquisite setting for a pre-holiday celebration in the Carolina Dining Room at the Pinehurst Resort. Personally escorted to our table, we were immediately welcomed by a most charming and well informed maître d'hôtel. Dinner menu selections were varied and what one would expect from an excellent dining room. Wine pairings were plentiful, appetizers were delicious and... More

Enjoyed a very tasty meal, but had to ask twice to get the pianist to lighten his touch enough that we could converse. Staff were otherwise attentive and the room was lovely with the Christmas decorations. The business lunch the next day was nicely presented, served quickly and staff were great. They managed a decent sized group very efficiently.

This year, the bride rated Pinehurst's American Thanksgiving dinner buffet "to die for". She loved the many versions of turkey and prime rib on offer. Personally I did not get beyond the multiple varieties of oyster on the half shell and the sweet jumbo shrimp. The dessert selection was spectacular, especially the spiced pumpkin cheese cake and the pecan pie.... More

I loved the atmosphere and the food was very good. The wait staff is very attentive and friendly. I would have liked to have other options for beverages besides tea.

I am old enough now to view 'dining' as an 'experience' not just a meal, and the dinner 7 of us had at the Carolina Dining Room at the beautiful Pinehurst Resort was one of the truly best memorable dining experiences I have had in a long time. The table was starched white and ironed linen, as were the napkins,... More

Overly friendly wait staff, servers buzzing around, cold rolls dropped off at your table, I just didn't see a four star restaurant here. It took several tries to flag down someone to refill our water glasses. It did not have the cozy romantic feel we were looking for. It felt more like an ant farm in motion. They advertised a...

Our stay at the Manor Inn (one of three hotels) included breakfast at the Carolina Hotel in their main dining room each morning. The shuttle or short drive was easy. The full breakfast buffet was perfect. The wait staff was very attentive, polite and sincere providing true Southern hospitality.
