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.

Just wonderful fresh food. The outdoor patio is lovely in the warmer weather. Rhett's is a favorite here in Southern Pines.

I hosted a dinner for a party of 12 on a week day in January. Everyone in my party raved about their food selections. I had the trout with buttermilk mashed potatoes and brussell sprouts. The food was delicious. I also tried my husband's shrimp and grits and they were the best I've ever tasted. I ordered a key lime... More

Rhett's in Southern Pines had a very nice meal last Tuesday evening (we were there at 6:00). Beginning in the courtyard with live Christmas music, diners started with cider, veggie lasagna and spicy squash soup. There was also wine tasting in the courtyard. The water fountain was filled with fake snow...very festive! Inside were various tables with smoked salmon, trout,... More

Took Karen and her mom to Rhett's for Karen's birthday! This was our first time at his new location! We were greeted out front by our names and taken to a very comfortable table in a very charming setting. Rhett himself came to the table and wished Karen a happy birthday! We started with Champagne, then on to Calamari and... More

Maybe it was where we were seated, in a small room close to the door, but there was nothing to recommend this place. This was my initial impression: stark. Perhaps they have nicer dining rooms, but I had made a reservation and don't know. In nicer weather the courtyard would be pleasant. It was practically empty but the service was... More

Enjoyed a fabulous meal tonight! Collard green springs rolls, chicken friend steak, grits your way, smoked field peas and Redneck Romano risotto were all amazing, leaving the best for last...Flourless Chocolate Cake and Peanut Butter Crème Parfait with Cinnamon Streusel Crunch for dessert. Thanks Rhett!

We ate lunch at Rhett's on Saturday last weekend. I had the lobster bisque, along with the shrimp and grits. Both were quite nice, I really enjoyed the flavors. My daughter ordered the pasta dish, which was made with excellent homemade pasta! For dessert, homemade coffee ice cream. The iced tea was very refreshing. We dined al fresco, in the... More
