Excellence beyond compare

What an incredible gem hidden in downtown Pinehurst. From the classy bar serving the perfect Manhattan, to the beyond belief food and service.

Since we moved to SoPi we have heard great things about Ashten's. After tonight's dinner, I'm not sure what the fuss is about. The menu choices were ok. A menu needs more than local ingredients to make it great. The artichoke and cheese appetizer was too rich (didn't know that was possible). Reuben egg roll was GREAT. Fish and chips... More

Went for an extended family dinner with high expectations. Nice space and service, but the food was tired and dull. May have been too busy a night with lots of large groups, but was hoping for more.

We went for Mother's Day/Father's Birthday! Everything was absolutely amazing and my family truly enjoyed it. I ordered a Steak that was a special and they only had 5, sooooo glad I ordered it. Everyone truly enjoyed the food. The small setting made it worth everything. It took a little longer to get food but I understand. Bread with molasses... More

We go here whenever we are in Pinehurst--usually 2-3 times a year. They always remember us and are very welcoming. Ashten's is wonderful because it has a dual personality--on the one side you are in a very upscale, fancy restaurant with white tablecloths, elegant lighting and extremely attentive wait staff. On the other side, there is a wonderful, long wooden... More

When the staff is pleasant and polished, the menu varied and imaginative with locally sourced ingredients, and much attention has been given to the overall ambiance and delivery of a fine dining experience, you have the recipe for a successful restaurant.

Neat restaurant in heart of Southern Pines. A nice, varied menu, serving local beef and produce. You had splurge on a higher priced full entree or they have a very nice bar type menu -- burgers, etc. Very nice atmosphere and the wine pours are very generous.

I was hosting a group of golfers in Southern Pines and Ashten's was recommended to me by a friend. We absolutely loved our evening. The service was top notch, all our dishes were excellent, the atmosphere was just what we wanted. I was very impressed with the fair pricing on the wine list. I really have nothing at all to...

Celebrated a major anniversary here at Ashten's. Knew the table we wanted from peaking in window of main dining room when they were closed. Table was set for four, but they gladly accommodated our request. This establishment has different rooms to please your personal dining experience. One room formal, another a sitting room atmosphere, another a bar & larger partiy... More

Ashtens is one of the top two restaurants in Moore county. Great menu, fresh food, wonderful service. Make sure to sit in the pub seating at some point, and the restaurant for another visit as well. Each has a different feel but you can always order off either menu. We prefer the pub for a casual feeling but special cozy... More
