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.

The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere and great service. I have found the food to be hit or miss. Lunch is a far better value with good choices. Dinner can be difficult for someone with food allergies and the last time I went, the pork was not fully cooked - very pink. I sent it back but it still was... More

I was recently in Southern Pines for the day and had looked at another website for recommendations for a good lunch spot and Wolcott's was on my list. We asked some locals their recommendations and because we got about 6 different ones, I decided we would go to Wolcotts. Fortunately they were still open for lunch and did not have... More

We went to Wolcott's specifically for the Lobster Roll, but the menu looked so good, it was tempting to steer away from our course. We decided that at least one of us should have the lobster roll, and all three of us decided we wanted our own. GOOD CHOICE. The waitress was wonderful and told us about 90% of what... More

We are always looking for new restaurants to try and when we saw the newspaper ad advertising great lobster rolls we just had to give it a try. They were not exaggerating. My lobster roll was absolutely delicious. We started with lobster bisque which was great with it's large chunks of lobster meat. Wife has the lobster pie which she... More

The restaurant we wanted to visit for our 24th anniversary was closed for the week of July 4, so we "settled" for Wolcott's - and will definitely be back. Not only was the service and presentation fantastic, but the food was wonderful and the experience superb. We'll be making many return visits...
