My husband and I came to check out Pinehurst, look at the golf courses, check out the Pinehurst Resort and have lunch. It was quite delightful. For under $40, tip included, we shared a turkey club on ciabatta bread...very tasty. They did not skimp on the turkey, and it was large enough to share, along with a fruit plate which... More

Outstanding... Very good selection and attentive service. My grandkids loved the various choices but their favorite had to be the bacon but who doesn't love bacon!

We still enjoy the breakfast buffet, though their smoked salmon was too salty this time. We still like the piano playing. As for dinner, I think the level of food went down a notch. They look good still but the taste went down a level. Can't have same menu everyday. Was glad not to eat there after a while. Holly... More

We ate here while staying at the Carolina Hotel for both breakfast and dinner. The breakfast buffett is absolutely amazing, the biscuits and gravy are a must. Not often do you get live piano music during breakfast. Dinner is equally good and we were all very pleased with our order. The service was incredible apart from one odd encounter with... More

Description
Step back in time in Pinehurst's most expansive dining room, offering breakfast and dinner daily. Executive Chef Thierry Debailleul's amazing menu features hand-selected aged beef and signature dry seasoning rub for our steaks and chops. Menus change seasonally, invoking the fresh flavors of the area and our local farmers' picks.
The legendary breakfast buffet is known as the best in golf, and with good reason. Piano music sets the tone as you feast on made-to-order omelets, fresh fruit and Southern favorites.
