Four of us came here for dinner on Saturday night. They were pretty busy, so the service was a bit slow, but our server was pleasant and helpful with menu selections. The salad bar looked fresh and had a lot of meat on it, but was a bit depleted by 5:30. Two of us had fish, which had been batter... More

Best thing we ordered were the ginormous sweet potato and the baked potato. Green beans, baked apples, as well as stuffed flounder were packaged, not made in restaurant. The staff was polite and attentive. Very clean restaurant.

My boyfriend and I stopped at The Pines this past Sunday afternoon while driving home to Charlotte from the Bristol Rhythm and Roots Festival.

Until I visited the Pines, I had never really had true country ham. The Pines does country ham and everything else so well. The bacon was fabulous & the biscuits are homemade and absolutely to die for. We also had great service. I can't wait to visit Sparta again and go eat at the Pines

Waitress was very informative. I don't understand what all the hype is about this place. The food isn't even that good. Salad bar was disgusting. Overpriced. Won't eat here again.

Didn't do the buffet but ordered a sandwich instead. Long wait....... Waitress said kitchen hates making sandwiches so she gave us free chocolate and coconut cream pie. Desserts were delicious. Had a side of fried orkra, which was awesome.
