Lobster Roll for Lunch

The lobster roll was A+. Plump bits of lobster, not too much binder or roll. Reasonably priced at $15. The chairs are very comfortable. Bathroom was clean. Service was prompt and polite. I didn't sit on the patio but it looked nice because it was clean and covered. The only negative was the... read more

Amazing lobster roll with fresh green salad. Nice atmosphere with smily staff on a Saturday midday. Excellent light lunch on a hot day!

Date night event and we truly enjoyed it. The lobster bisque and butter was amazing. The salmon over risotto was good but I was stuffed.

We were a bit worried because it took a long time before we were able to even order drinks. However once we ordered everything was superb. The $40 bottle of Earhquake Zin, the delicious beet salads, the lobster bisque, and yellow tail snapper couldn't have been better. Brittney was an engaging server. We would definitely return. However we sat at... More

Very nice small restaurant in Southern Pines. Especially liked the small menu; limited selections, but the key is they execute fewer dishes very well without trying to be all things to all people. Both the salmon served on lobster/spinach risotto and the lobster special they offered the night we dined there were excellent. Wine list was also limited in selections,... More

We went to Wolcott's with friends who have a place in Pinehurst. It is a small place but very big-hearted. The food was excellent. I especially liked being able to order "half plates" and do some sharing but frankly, half plates were plenty for a full meal. I had salmon and it was excellent. The French Onion soup was a... More

Great birthday dinner. Our server was attentive but not obtrusive and very helpful with suggestions. Excellent fish and beef dishes. Very small dining area but it lended to an intimate, quiet night.

Went to diner there last week with spouse and son & daughter-in-law. Charming, but small dining room. Lots of interesting choices on menu made it difficult for all of us to make our selection. They also serve some of the items in half portions so you can either eat less or mix-and-match with something else if you can't decide what... More
