The food is very good and your servers are great, however your hostess / cashier at lunch (has dark hair in her 40s) is very rude and consistently rude. I go in for lunch a couple times a week and my wife goes in also and she always rude and moody. We love to come there but hate seeing this... More

Had breakfast here last week-end. They offer a breakfast buffet, but we opted for ordering off the menu. Omelets were delicious, the coffee was hot and the staff was very friendly! Reasonable, good portions and good local NC mountain home cooked food.

Happened to be in Western North Carolina where I had not been in 30 years. During the summer for about 10 years during my younger days, I spent about 3 months at my dad's old home. We would have green beans like those I was served at The Pines. Vegetarians should note they were seasoned with "fat back" and as... More

Highly disappointed. Hostess is horribly obnoxious. Couldn't get adequate service because the server was busy texting. Food was cold and greasy. Restaurant appeared rather unclean.

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. We love salmon patties so both decided to try them and they were hands down the most delicious, freshest, made from scratch salmon patties we’ve had yet, even better than mine and I thought mine were...
