I'm surprised at some of the negative reviews and can only go by my experience. Granted, I didn't have food but my friend had the egg appetizer & the fries and chicken strips. He ate all of it. Love the ambiance and the coziness of the restaurant and bar. We sat at the bar, which is my preference being a bartender myself. Lucy,the bartender is probably one of the most personable and attentive bartenders I've met. She made all patrons feel welcome with a quick greeting and after learning I was visiting from Hawaii, even introduced me to some of the regular bar patrons. Her endearing southern accent is genuine as she's a NC native. Call it southern hospitality or I'm inclined to call it the Aloha Spirit, pretty much the same. A great way for me to spend my last night in Pinehurst.
