Heads Above the Rest in Southern Pines

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

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!!
