A local restaurant that uses local produce. Prepare to spend around $40 or more for a meal. The food is excellent and portions are good. If your elderly like me bring a small flashlight to read the menu as they keep it very dim even in daylight. The menu is limited in that you will find one or two dishes... More

Like a lot of restaurants in Southern Pines, Ashten's is a small, well appointed local favorite. Great blend of classic and southern cuisine. Another place you can dress to the nines or be causal and still feel comfortable. Service is good, food is original and delicious.

I was there with a group of 6 friends for a Sunday dinner. One of my friends picked this location. The service was slow yet friendly. I felt the food was overpriced for the selection and I am one to enjoy a fabulous meal for extra the price. The restaurant was very loud. Im not sure if it was just... More

Food was good but the main dining room was too warm to be comfortable. Staff was friendly & professional. Ask to be seated in a different room.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review Ashten's on Trip Advisor. I'm so sorry the dining room was hot. It really was! We had TWO air conditioners malfunction that night and we didn't realize it until folks were seated. It's all fixed now so I hope you will come back to see us soon. Our new Fall... More

This is located in a charming vintage house. Service is good. I had the pork chop with sauce which was average and slightly tough. Salad is extra.

Ashton's is where we go for a birthday or other celebration. It feelsbsmall and intimate, but there's more to it than the front dining area. Because hardly anyone gets dressed up in this golfing area, it is fairly casual, but not, probably, shorts. A small bar makes excellent cocktails, and the wine list is extensive. Almost all the food is... More

My family went there for the first time and right away noticed that the dining room was too dark for it to be comfortable and we would've liked more lights. For appetizers, I ordered a salad which was deserves praised for being fresh and seasonal. The salad was good overall but I found there to be too much dressing. My... More

My hubs and I live in Southern Pines and wanted to have a phone-free date night we could walk to. Ashten's is perfect. The atmosphere is cozy and the locally sourced food was delicious. I had a vegetarian curry dish with naan. It was pricey, but truly worth every penny for how good the food was. Can't wait to try... More
