My wife, one-year old, and I went there for lunch while touring Pinehurst. I'd heard wonderful things about this place and decided to give it a try. It was a crowded little place, pretty loud, but the staff welcomed you into the restaurant and made an extra effort to accommodate us with the baby. We did have a wait to be seated, but once seated, the staff and the service really worked hard to make it a very pleasant experience. My wife got the baked potato soup and it was terrific. Our main courses were a grilled cheese for her, and a bacon cheese burger for me. The grilled cheese was good, yes I had a bite of her soup and sandwich, and my burger was tasty. I'm not going to say it was the best or even one of the best I've had but it was good. The sweet tea was not very sweet however if you look at the history of this place (that being Pinehurst itself) it was modeled after a New England village. It was designed by the same gentlemen who designed Central Park and was supposed to be a winter get-away for northerners. And, as we noticed while walking through the village, the majority of license plates are from the northeast US and Canada. So, with all those points, you shouldn't expect a real "southern" environment. On a good note, I got a piece of pecan pie to go and it was fantastic. I would definitely go again if in the area but probably wouldn't make a special trip to the restaurant. The food was good and the service was really awesome.
