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.

Wonderful breakfast buffet

Perfect for a pre round breakfast! Plenty of food and great service. Fast with plenty of time to get to driving range.

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

The service was terrific from start to finish every night we as a group dined at this fine facility. We ended up meeting the manager-whom introduced himself after a 3 hour visit from our group, and he must be the "train the trainer" as his professionalism exuded by his demeanor. His servers were all very professional and yet fun with... More

We had breakfast and dinner in the Carolina dining room. The food and service at both meals was very good. I would definitely go back to this restaurant the next time I visit Pinehurst.

The service was very slow and the dining room was cold. The food was also marginal. My husband and I both had steaks. Not worth the price on the menu.

If you want fine dining while staying at the Carolina Hotel, then this is the place. You will not be disappointed. Wait staff is top notch. Food is excellent. Price is commensurate, so bring your wallet!

We had breakfast in the Carolina Dining Room for three mornings and it was delicious. The buffet has everything one could want and there is also an omelette station. Joann was our server for two of those mornings and she made sure we had everything we needed. We also had dinner there one evening and it was fabulous. That night... More

I had both dinner and breakfast in the Dining Room, and both were excellent. Breakfast, however is not only great, nut quite the production. Service is good and the staff is attentive.
