Dined at Rhett's last Friday night. Clams. Delicious. Casual, yet sophisticated dining. Friendly staff. Home made desserts. Couldn't decide between key lime pie & Heath bar chocolate cake. Decided on to have both. I chose well.

“Hidden gem of Southern Pines”
Reviewed May 14, 2010

Happened upon Rhett's one night recently when a restaurant we had visited before was full and could not take a walk in. What a lucky night! Had a fantastic meal with four courses, great food, local vegetables and a bottle of wine for well under $100. Have been back several times since. Most nights the owner is there and, if not cooking, out talking to his guests. Rhett's makes all homemade salad dressings. I have started most meals there with a simple salad of really nice greens with homemade blue cheese dressing for only $2.95! Menu is mostly southern influenced and ranges from $12 - $18 for entrees. Every night also features a $10.95 "blue plate" special that is definitely gourmet version of blue plate. Had chili glazed, grilled shrimp with fresh bok choy and rice pilaf this week. Wine list is short, but always really nice choices at reasonable prices and they change it up every few weeks so you can try new things. They have their own pastry chef and all desserts are made there. I am not a dessert eater, but my husband is mad for cookies. He can't walk out without a toffee cookie - says they are among the best he has had.
