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

The food is very good and presented nicely. The prices are a bit high for what you get though. The special of night was scallops, received 3 large scallops for 29.00 and that does not include salad or soup, served over mashed potatoes. The service was good and the restaurant is attractive. Probably would not return as it didn't seem... More

Always reliable, a Pinehurst tradition. Nothing fancy or pretentious. Just friendly service and excellent food at reasonable prices. Rack of lamb is superb. And there are always some interesting and affordable wines.

Nina's is tucked away in a small shopping center in Olmstead part of Pinehurst. It gets busy and noisy but is always reliable in both the quality of food and service.

Mediocre food and typical Moore county service. I will just continue to hire personal chefs to cook for my guests. I was embarrassed to be seen here. Terribly outdated decor, musty moth ball smelling patrons and patchy food and service. Did I mention how bad the lamb was cooked? It's odd how on TA that the owner responds to people... More

I made a last minute lunch reservation for 8 people at Nina's and they gladly accommodated us. We had a nice large table and an amazing lunch. The lunch staff was friendly and the salads, soups and lunch all came out in a timely manner - we neither felt like we were waiting nor were we rushed. Their seafood bisque... More
