Wolcott's is tucked into an unassuming building, but what a surprise when you go inside! The small dining room is elegantly appointed. In nice weather, there's also plein air dining on the side porch, which my sisters and I chose. It's pretty basic there, no complaints, but nicer when they turned down the lights. They have a good selection of... More

You can NEVER go wrong at Wolcott's. Visited this evening with a group of six and all were pleased with their dinners which included seafood paella, the hangar steak, berkshire pork chop, and bacon wrapped veal medallions. Service is first class, attentive, and polite. Outstanding experience all around - as always.

Downtown Southern Pines, sweet house with an inviting screened porch for dining. We sat outside for lunch and enjoyed every bit of it. We ordered wine, talked and had a good time. Atmosphere was relaxed, yet classy. I had the BLT with avocado, the bacon was thick and juicy, I substituted the Mayo and got the basil Mayo..... yum!

Haven't been to Wolcotts in a while and wasn't disappointed. They have new screened in porch so we sat out there. Nice but could use better lighting and decorating. Great potential though. Meal and service was real good. Will certainly come back again soon.

This is a beautiful vintage home transformed into an intimate setting for a fine restaurant. The service is excellent, food is very good and the wine list is excellent. The menu changes often and there are specials.

We made a reservation for Friday night. We sat outside on the patio. Nice to have our own space. Daniel was our awesome waiter. Lobster bisque nice start. Paella was so good - lobster, mussels and more. I had a salmon special with sweet potato and russet potato hash. No room for dessert. Can't wait to come back.

What a smart treat. A small building with a patio and dining room. The food is exquisite, from a professional genius chef. Drinks are made to order by your server. The staff works well together and even with a large party in the patio room, we didn't have to wait for great service. Menu is always changing. We didn't have... More

I visited Wolcott's for lunch as the guest of a friend who dines there often. She told me what a great place it was and I was prepared for a treat. The establishment itself is rather small, with very standard metropolitan-ish decor--save for the large framed Chef's Jackets on one wall, each one inscribed to the chef/owner (whose name I... More

From their lobster rolls to their salmon to their wines, this restaurant is fabulous. I love their sandwiches at lunch and their "just a taste" smaller dinner portions. My husband says they have the best fried oysters in town. And we really like their wine list. Scott Wolcott is doing it right.
