A must-do southern pines establishment

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... read more

This was my first time going to this establishment, and I loved the couch setting, (very relaxed and cozy), however the weight staff was not up to par. I did not fee like they were very busy and everything just took forever. We were asked if we wanted dessert and our check before we were even served our entrée. Which... More

We ordered peanut hummus and honesty thought it was awful. Then we had a veggie burger and it was just ok! The service was good but would not recommend the restaurant.

This place brought fine dining to Southern Pines--and I grew up there so I know. The meals are well prepared with something for everyone but not so many things that nothing gets done right. I prefer to sit in the bar area, but all seats are good. Aim for the specials when you can, just ask what it is and... More

Ate in the pub this time and loved the comfy, informal setting, the food was over the top good. Only wish we had had room for dessert. Next time!

Varied menu that covers all sorts of tastes and pocket books. The specials are alway great! Love the sauerkraut egg-rolls! Highly recommend. Sit in the bar area! Best seats in the house are in the sofa area!!

We ate at Ashten's when we were in town last year and found it good but this time it was excellent. We ate in the dining room but the Pub where we sat last time was better. Even so the atmosphere, service and food were excellent. My husband had a steak and I had the salmon special. We had some... More

A disappointing second visit, after a similar experience a year earlier. Indifferent service, fair food - no idea what elicits the raves. If they don't know you, they don't seem to care.

My wife and I tried Ashten's on a Thursday evening and had a very enjoyable time. We were seated in the Pub area, which was fairly crowded. We found the evening very enjoyable. The menu was interesting, the food was very good and the service was attentive without being intrusive. Overall a wonderful experience.

I was recommended this place by numerous people we met while playing golf and it is an easy find and short journey from Pine Needles. The bar area is quite dark but very atmospheric and tastefully furnished. If I wasn't in my golf clothes I would have loved to have inhabited the dark clothed dining tables. The staff are friendly...
