The Holly is a great place to go for lunch! It is "south" and it is "tradition". It was one of the first places that the locals suggested that we visit. This restaurant is one of those independent restaurants that are a lot of fun. It is a bit expensive. Don't go if you are in a hurry (true with large or small parties). Do order the homemade (no calories, ha) potato chips! I have only eaten in the tavern part (small area).If you are ever in town when the azaleas or camellias are blooming, you are in for a pleasant stroll to The Holly! Enjoy the meal, then walk around the lovely little town! I have a home in Pinehurst, and have eaten here numerous times. Keep this place in mind if you are planning to go to The Open next summer (or any other time). I know very little about the attached inn....
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Holly is one of the hotels of Pinehurst Resort, located in the center of the charming Village of Pinehurst. Built in 1895, The Holly was Pinehurst's first hotel. Every detail has been attended to inside and on the spacious grounds. Decorating the walls and floors are a series of natural botanical prints and images reminiscent of times gone by. You'll see the fine touches in every nook from the jewel-toned Tiffany lamps to the reading selection in the library to the comfort of a rocking chair in your guest room. It's no wonder the Holly is a Four-Diamond hotel. The 1895 Grille is the Four-Diamond restaurant inside the Holly. There's also the charming Tavern which offers indoor seating and outdoor dining seasonally. Free resort shuttles will transport you across the resort so there is easy access to golf, spa and all amenities. ... more less
