Nina's has always been our "go to" place for a special meal out and once again we had a delicious experience! The menu items are always perfectly cooked, elegantly presented, and the attention from wait staff is impeccable. Our table started with the fried oysters appetizer. The oysters were scantily breaded and mouthwateringly tender. I would also highly recommend the... More

Taking a driving tour through the South can sometimes leave you with limited food options. We stayed one night at the Carolina at the Pinehurst resort and ventured out to see where the locals eat. We encountered a group leaving Nina's on a rainy Wednesday night and were told Nina's was the place for us. The restaurant was about half... More

The menu is so good, you can;t wait to go back and try something else. But the last meal was so good you want it again. If nothing else, go for the fired green tomatoes.

We returned after a lengthy time away only to find that the service was disorganized, food was mediocre, and oddly paired. I asked about their shrimp and garlic and was told it was served with "a ravioli". Opted out of that. My wife ordered stuffed mushrooms, which were served (30 minutes later) over rigatoni??? Seemed very strange, but we should... More

First time dining at Nina's and I must say, we were left with a solid positive impression. The filet mignon was delicious paired with a great (recommended) Cabernet. Lots of variety on the menu with a special touch evident on each plate served. Reservations are important as all of the tables were filled and stayed filled.

I visit family in Pinehurst every year and we always go to Nina's. A small, cozy restaurant near our hotel (Homewood Suites-Olmstead), we could walk there. The menu is varied and the food is always wonderfully prepared. We love the wine glasses - which are all different! The staff is very accommodating and friendly. They make a superb soup -... More

We finally made it to Nina's...during the US Open. You could hear the staff speaking to and carrying on with the return guests. So if they are here again...it must be good. My husband had the orange roughy, their main reccomendation. I had the pork tenderloin on the special of the day with orange chutney and veggies. We ended with... More

Small and excellent acoustics for conversation. Food is very good and service attentive. Great neighborhood cafe.

If you always rely on first impressions to decide where to dine you probably will never enjoy a meal at Nina's. The restaurant is tucked in a corner of a strip mall. Ugg. Take your first taste of the lobster bisque and you will forget all about the lack of ambiance. I have friends that drive over 100 miles to... More

Food was excellent (two of our group had the orange roughy, one the pork schnitzel, and one the veal marsala) and we always start with the fried green tomatoes which our guests from the North really enjoyed. Our waitress Jennifer was a breath of fresh air. We've eaten here many times and the only thing I wish they's change is... More
