Most importantly...choose the Parlor. The atmosphere is great - dark, cozy, eclectic. Only the sofa was available, and it was perfect. The parlor has tables and a very cool bar -- small, with lots of character. Our dinner & service were both amazing. We loved our waiter, Collin. I recommend the edamame hummus and tuna appetizers. Presentation and taste were... More

Had supper with two friends there and the food and service were excellent. One of my friends is a local boy and it seemed he knew everyone, or everyone knew him. I met way too many people to know their names, but the whole experience was just great. The wine was excellent as was the meal. The service was first... More

The food was breath taking & amazing! Despite the fact the service was very delayed it was worth the wait.

Impressive. We were a party of 8 after the final round of the US Open, very crowded and busy, yet our meals and service where prepared and served as if we were the only people in the place. Our choices of appetizers and entrees ranged over virtually the entire menu and everything was outstanding. Wine, cocktails and food service was... More

Dropped in with no reservation on a Sunday, no problem got at table in the "bar" downstairs. Not really a bar, nice dining service with small tables, quiet and comfortable. Very attentive and helpful staff, I had the chicken breast sandwich with portobello and other mushrooms which was to die for. My wife had the salmon and loved it, which... More

We had a party of 8 for dinner while in Pinehurst for the US open. This was my first visit to Southern Pines and I was the only non-local in our party. The restaurant lived up to its reputation and the food was excellent. The ambience is nice for a group our size but just as nice for a dinner... More

We met friends at Ashtens when visiting Pinehurst for the US Open. We requested a table in the Pub area as others on Trip Advisor have suggested. The place is a little pricey but food and service were excellent. I had the New York Strip, my wife the Lasagna and our 3 friends all had fish. Also, the strawberry shortcake... More

Took my wife here for the 10yr anniversary of my proposal to her and the food did not disappoint. The scallop app was perfectly prepared and tasted brilliant!!! I had the risotto with my fish entree and it was superbly cooked - risotto can be so easily ruined!! They were ready and prepared when we arrived and the waitress was... More

We had been here once before. Have our favorites in Southern Pines (Rhett's and Southern Prime Steakhouse), but feel we should branch out. Tried Ashten's again. Booked on opentable during the (practice rounds) of the mens US Open and was happy to be able to get a table. Romantic place. Has history behind the location. Nice place to take dinner.... More
