On a golfing trip with friends - four guys just wanting a meal were happily surprised by the delightful menu of local foods, and an innovative choice of meals. The Red Fish was wonderful and the bread pudding a 9 of 10! The waitstaff was attentive and prompt. The wine list was good. Overall a surprisingly excellent evening.

Three words - shrimp and grits. Incredible. We introduced our visiting German relatives to this southern specialty and they are now converts to the joys of Southern comfort food.

My husband and I are both allergic to mold and we were aware of it as soon as we entered. Since we were with friends we did not leave. In cooler weather the outdoor dining looked like a pleasant choice. They are well known for their lobster bisque but I have a shellfish allergy so unfortunately I could not order... More

We had the chicken salad sandwiches, amazing! The outside seating is in a beautiful courtyard. It's a little unkept during the day. Not much decoration anyways, but the food is great!

A nice place to sit on the patio and enjoy great food. Love when they also have outdoor musician playing to accompany your great meal. Fan of the menu and everything I've tried, including great summer cocktails.

We found Rhett's because we were looking for a place that didn't have such long waits/crowds. We ate outside in a shaded arbor, near a fountain, and it was just a perfect place to have lunch on a hot day. Our server was very quick to bring our iced tea, which was nice, but the meal itself took a pretty... More

We took my niece to lunch while visiting her for the day, and we were fortunate to have had a recommendation to Rhett's - what a great little place. The food was very good, and reasonably priced. The beet salad with goat cheese from the local Paradox Farm and Creamery was particularly good, as was the gazpacho. Others were happy... More

Rhett's is an unassuming little place in downtown Southern Pines. The menu selections are chef prepared and delicious! Rhett strolls among the diners and checks on each table so he takes a lot of pride in his little place. The trout was so flavorful and pan fried with cornmeal. If you are looking for a nice place to dine in... More

Ordered beet salad and soft shell crab sandwich. Both were fresh and attractively presented. Outdoor seating gives pleasant view of downtown.

Was here last week and visiting with 3 friends. We were looking for a nice place to eat dinner. Were staying in Pinehurst and looked on Google real quick. This is pretty close to Pinehurst. So, we went and were pretty sorely disappointed. The ambiance and overall inside of the restaurant was pretty terrible. We sat inside right near the... More
