If I could give a place zero stars, I would. My mother lives in Southern Pines and has been to Wolcott's several times and liked it, so I figured we could go there one night to switch up our usual restaurant rotation. We arrived at 7:30 and were told our table had not yet turned, and if we'd mind having... More

We used to live in Pinehurst, so we thought we knew all the good, bad and indifferent places to eat. Wolcott's was new to us, even though they said they'd been open a number of years. Restaurant is attractive and welcoming. Aprons are on the wall showing the owner's background as a CIA graduate and work in Northern California including... More

Even with having a reservation we waited about 15-20 minutes to sit at a table. That was the only negative about this meal. The food was tasty and I loved that they have smaller plates in case you aren't overly hungry. Would definitely recommend!

This is a very small restaurant, maybe 10 tables. We read about it online and it sounded very interesting. The chef had worked at The French Laundry in Napa. We arrived, the staff was welcoming and professional. They gave us a very nice table. We asked for a cocktail they didn't know how to make, but after we gave them... More

So my partner and I have eaten here three or four times, and it's only been for lunch, and we've only sat outside, but we've had great experiences each time. First of all, it's one of the few places in downtown Southern Pines that has outdoor seating; it's a covered area with overhead fans, and a nice view of the... More

Wolcots may house the best chef in the Pinehurst area. He worked at the world famous French Laundry restaurant in Napa Valley!! Recently expanded and refurbished. Great menu with excellent cuisine. Not a huge variety of choice but everything is haute cuisine. Lobster Bisque to die for. Open for lunch most days and different menu for dinner

Just ate there this week for dinner. A little noisy and wait staff not very knowledgable about wines. THE FOOD WAS FANTASTIC!!! I had to ask for water and they don't serve bread with the meal.

Very good modern American food. A bit complicated but quite tasty. They offer half portions at very fair prices. Excellent value for light eaters.

We visited Walcott's for lunch today because of an article we read in the Pinestraw magazine. 3 of us ordered the lobster roll which was delicious. The other ordered the fried oysters. For dessert, we split the bread pudding with ice cream. It was also excellent. Our only problem was slow service which we didn't expect since we went about... More
