Good Restaurant - Good Experience

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... read 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

Wolcott's is a small, intimate restaurant that lends itself to conversation. Great wine, small knowledgeable staff, excellent kitchen. They offer quality, thoughtful menu choices that make for a delicious dining experience. We enjoyed both salmon and beef. Excellent cheeses in the antipasto tray. Our dessert was a pumpkin cheesecake with a gingersnap crust. Wonderful!

We visited Wolcott's for dinner on a Thursday night, This is a small dining area but we did not feel cramped nor was noise an issue. The menu was amazing with some outstanding appetizers. We tried the fried oysters and the lobster artichoke toast. The lobster bisque was outstanding as well. The chef offers a small plate version of the... More

I called on a Wednesday to ask about Chili. I was told by Josh(excellent chef) that he would slowcook some and it would be ready on Thursday. I had that and I ordered some fried oysters. As Guy Fieri would say, "Shut the front door". My goodness, the lightness and the perfect bread and seasoning of the oysters was beyond... More

We have been here about 3 times and it is a lovely setting, attentive staff and very good, sometimes great cuisine. Nice to find a place where you can be casual for lunch but more formal for dinner when you want a special night out.
