Restaurant details
Dining options: Reservations
Description: Step back in time in Pinehurst's most expansive dining room, offering breakfast and dinner daily. Executive Chef Thierry Debailleul's amazing menu features hand-selected aged beef and signature dry seasoning rub for our steaks and chops. Menus change seasonally, invoking the fresh flavors of the area and our local farmers' picks. The legendary breakfast buffet is known as the best in golf, and with good reason. Piano music sets the tone as you feast on made-to-order omelets, fresh fruit and Southern favorites.

Great Service. Good food with good choices. Sometimes a bit slow but worth the wait. The music is nice and the Holiday buffets are unbelievable, amazing

The dinner menu selections were outstanding, as was the presentation and quality of the food. Very attentive service and wonderful piano music playing in the background.

“very nice dinner”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

We had dinner here. There were lots of interesting choices on the menu. 4 of us all had something different and everyone had good things to say. The presentation was very nice and the service was good but not overbearing. If you like ice cream, have the rock pile for desert!
It is a large dining room, if you like more quite dinning, then go to Magnolia Dinning Room (the other hotel at Pinehurst)

“Mother's day brunch that we tell everyone about”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

We have been to the Mother's day brunch two out of three years we have lived in the area. This is an EPIC buffet that you dream of. If you are looking for a brunch that will blow you away, this is it.

“Southern Charm & Lovely Father's Day Buffet”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

The food and dining room are lovely. Dining in the evening is classic Southern charm. Although "dress" is not dictated, it's so cute to see little boys with bow ties, and girls with their mary-janes and fancy dresses. Father's Day afternoon buffet had a "to die for" selection!
