We NEVER eat in the same place twice when traveling. Well, we broke that rule and ate 2 of 3 dinners at Ashten's during our recent visit to Southern Pines. With an elegant up-scale fine dining room upstairs, and a cool, eclectic, fun pub downstairs, it felt like we were eating in 2 different places. Both the fine dining and pub menu are available on both floors and we tried both during our recent visits. Menu is inventive ( like sweet potato to stone appetizer) and every dish ( down to the burgers) exceeded our expectation. This is THE not to miss place in Southern Pines.

Most importantly...choose the Parlor. The atmosphere is great - dark, cozy, eclectic. Only the sofa was available, and it was perfect. The parlor has tables and a very cool bar -- small, with lots of character. Our dinner & service were both amazing. We loved our waiter, Collin. I recommend the edamame hummus and tuna appetizers. Presentation and taste were outstanding. Our dinner and wine were both delicious. We will definitely be back! If you're visiting Southern Pines, Pinehurst or just passing through, you don't want to miss Ashten's! Be sure to call for a reservation.

Had supper with two friends there and the food and service were excellent. One of my friends is a local boy and it seemed he knew everyone, or everyone knew him. I met way too many people to know their names, but the whole experience was just great. The wine was excellent as was the meal. The service was first class and the whole evening was what one wants in a dining experience. I would recommend them to anyone.

The food was breath taking & amazing! Despite the fact the service was very delayed it was worth the wait.

Impressive. We were a party of 8 after the final round of the US Open, very crowded and busy, yet our meals and service where prepared and served as if we were the only people in the place. Our choices of appetizers and entrees ranged over virtually the entire menu and everything was outstanding. Wine, cocktails and food service was prompt, congenial, and spot on. We have dined here many times in the past and had similar experiences but under these circumstances, this was truly impressive !
