“Still Great but we must be honest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

We came back to Southern Pines while traveling and decided to go back to Beefeaters after a great dinner in January. The hostess seated us and said that the ownership had changed so we were worried but still were ready for a great meal. The salad bar was still the same, wonderful with items not usually found on a salad bar, smoked oysters, smoked whitefish as a few examples. Salad dressings could have been home-made but were still good. The prime rib was excellent, rare as ordered and juicy; and spiced just right. The crispy duck was tasty BUT a bit over done and on the dry side. This was one of their signature dishes and perhaps the cook could have made it crispy and juicy. Overall, the experience was great, our waitress was the same one we had in January and most excellent. Sorry we did not get her name, she deserves credit! We will be back when we get back to this area. The menu had so many other items, we will have to try other entrees next time.

“Very good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

My second time here, and the food and service were fine (as before). The prime rib is excellent, and portions very large. Salad bar ok, but not worth the press it gets from other reviews. Service was great. Middle of the week dining can be had anytime, without waiting. Weekends, however, will require a wait. Largely inhabited by old folks and golfers - usually the same! I'm an old golfer, so I can say that. Good food at a good price. Enough said!

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Yes, it is in an older building but I think that just adds to the atmosphere. I found the dining area to be well lit. The bar area was dark, but most bars are dim with TV's on the wall. The entrees are generous and the salad bar is well stocked with veggies, fruits, sardines, and smoked oysters. This seems to be a favorite of the locals and the place was full when I dined there.

“Hit or Miss”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

this is one of those places that gets rave reviews from the locals. I have found it to be a bit hit or miss, when its good its really good when its bad its just alright. A couple items that seem to always be good are the prime rib and the salad bar. Stick with those choices and you wont go wrong.

“Worthwhile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

This place was worthwhile to visit, as it was enjoyable food with a darkly-lit atmosphere. I prefer to have more light.
