We live in Pinehurst and had never been to the Holly Inn Tavern Restaurant. Our neighbors took us there. It was AWFUL. The service was very SLOW. It took a long time to get our drinks. When we got them the waitress said I'll be back to take your order. It was about 10 min. before she came back. Then, she brought the wrong sandwich. When we ordered dessert, one was wrong. We ordered Key Lime pie and she came back with cheesecake. She went back to the kitchen and came back about 10 min. later and said they were out. If we wanted the cheesecake it would be on the house. We said no. Wanted to try the Key Lime pie. The waitress had to be asked by our neighbor to please clear the table before dessert. Which took forever. Our neighbor didn't get her coffee until she had finished her dessert. Then, they add a service charge of 15% for 4 people. I'm used to a flat tip for parties of 6 or more. Of course they're not in any hurry to serve you, the tip is already added to the bill.
Living in Pinehurst, I was very embarrassed and so was our neighbor who took us there.
