A couples retreat. Spent the weekend at the spa and relaxing in the village of Pinehurst. The spa staff was attentive and the dinner and breakfast buffet in the Carolina dining room was delicious. Breakfast was a little busy but the staff did their best to reduce your wait time.

One of the best golf destinations anywhere. The courses are spectacular and their restaurants are excellent. We had breakfast there twice and it had a huge selection of items. The service was spot on and very attentive. Highly recommended for both breakfast and dinner.

The Carolina Dining Room serves a huge breakfast buffet that fed hundreds of hungry golfers, mostly men, quite well. Lots of freshly prepared eggs and meats and potatoes and pastries as well as fruit and juice filled the bill to get lots of people in and out for their golf rounds. We also had dinner there a couple of evenings.... More

This may be the one meal many at this hotel guests look forward to. Pianist accompanied by a good breakfast buffet. It took several minutes to find someone to seat me. Once I was seated, I sat so long waiting for coffee that I finally got up to get my food- no pianist during all of this time. Got my... More

The food is off the hook good. Portions were beyond generous - and the staff attentive to the point of making you feel like you were the only ones dining in the restaurant. The steak we had the first night was some of the best flavored steak I've had anywhere - ever. Portions were generous - and there wasn't a... More

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.
