I popped in to visit my mother during a biz trip east and she decided we should dine at Ashten's. Ashten's sits on a lovely little street in Southern Pines, and at night the place is all lit up and welcoming. The service is attentive but not obnoxious, the food was delicious. The Salmon dish is as good if not... More

My family and I visited Ashten's for the first time this past week. We were celebrating a birthday and wanted a restaurant with a bit of elegance and more importantly great food. A neighbor had raved about Ashten's so we made a reservation and gave it a try. We started with some appetizers including their pumpkin soup, avocado heart poppers... More

I recently went to Ashtens with a group of ladies to enjoy drinks and "light bites." We sat in the pub area which is cozy and dimmly lit. Our server and all the other food runners did a good job keeping track of our drink orders, bringing food out, filling water and clearing plates on our busy table. I love... More

Have had some good but not great meals here before but tonight was not very good. Ordered the pork chop medium rare and it came out cool, hardly warm. Very tough to cut and chewy. Not a good dining experience. Have had better.

A very quirky menu in a very unexpected place. The roasted pimento cheese, apparently a local staple, was different and tasty. The steak poivre was an excellent cut and grilled perfectly. Accompanying garlic mashed was excellent. Nice atmosphere and pleasant service aiming to please.

Had dinner this evening and it was awesome from start to finish, I had the rib eye and my boyfriend had the burger and they were both delicious. I will highly recommend this place. Great customer service and decorated beautifully!

This restaurant is actually in Southern Pines next door to Pinehurst. Its unique in that they have a formal restaurant one one side and cozy bar dining on the other side. All the food is excellent Potentially the best burger in the area plus their cheeses and vegetables are all local as are their meats. Very good atmosphere, especially in... More
