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

Dinner on a Wednesday evening in March, on an unusually warm and sunny day had us eating on the patio. We started with an appetizer of lamb pops, cooked to order and with a mint sauce--delicious. Because the salads sounded so good ( and they were) we split the steak entree and left room for dessert. Entries come with choice... More

What a disappointment! My wife's beet and goat cheese salad, described as layers of each, was a total misrepresentation -- it was a mound of chopped up, tasteless beets with a small dollop of goat cheese on top. I had some collard greens and a piece of pork belly, wrapped to form a spring roll. The worst item that we... More

I really like to find quaint places to eat and Rhett's is one of them. Whether you sit outside or inside, it is a lovely place. Though my husband and I have only eaten there for lunch, we thoroughly enjoy our meals every time we are there. The bread for their sandwiches is homemade, which might not be what some... More

A friend recommended Rhett's, telling us it's a local staple, and he was right! We will most certainly return! The atmosphere is bright and comfortable, like you're at a friend's home. We were warmly greeted and promptly seated. Our server introduced himself and explained he was knew and preemptively apologized for any mistakes he might make. He made none. The... More
