I'm a local. One of my best meals ever at Rhett's. Been eating here for quite some time. Before they were in the current location. Always a great value for the food. Tonight was exceptional. Best preparation ever. Food was fantastic, service was great... They continue to improve with age.

Coming from Foodies; DELICIOUS! and great value. Coming from Miami where prices can tend to be a bit high, this restaurant was great. Our favorites; shrimp and grits, lamb chops, lobster bisque. Visited August 2014

Had a 7:30 reservation here last weekend. Got there at 7:00 hoping to have cocktails at the bar. The host said the bar was closed but we could sit outside. Since it was almost 90 degrees, we said we had a 7:30 reservation, was there a table inside available. We were told the inside table wouldn't be ready until 7:30.... More

We had a nice enjoyable experience here. Decided to sit outdoors in spite of 97 degree weather. Courtyard was pleasant with european feel. The service was prompt and friendly. Food was served quickly.

Had occasion to enjoy a lovely dinner on a recent First Friday in Southern Pines. Had about a 10 minute wait around 7:30 which wasn't bad. Lobster bisque is very good and had the chicken cordon bleu. It's fried in corn meal which is crispy on the outside and moist on the inside. The menu is somewhat limited though, maybe... More

My husband and I visited on 6/6. I had made reservations through OpenTable. Arrived about 10 minutes early but we were seated immediately. Both our dinners were excellent, my husband especially enjoyed the lobster bisque soup. Servers were attentive and efficient. Will definitely visit again when visiting the area!

An afternoon at Rhett's is a wonderful dining experience. Eating in the outdoor courtyard under the Caroling blue sky with friends and family make it very special. The food is outstanding. The recipes are original and are made from fresh ingredients from local farmer's markets. Save room for dessert. The taste of homemade cakes and cookies is irresistible!

Rhett's has improved its menu again and again. Its cozy menu and atmosphere in winter draws locals for lunch and dinner, and its outdoor seating in good weather is charming and comfortable. The small hamburger on the lunch menu is excellent, as is the portobello sandwich and the often served lobster bisque. Dinner entrees are hard to choose from, because... More

Food is original and great! Located just behind the main shopping area. Our meals there are always fresh. If the weather permits, the outside courtyard provides a nice atmosphere.
