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.

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.
