Excellent. Food seems to be sourced locally and the owner/chef was there and spoke with people at every table.

My first time at Rhett's (after
My first time at Rhett's (after having sampled their appetizers at a private function the evening )but won't be my last. Upscale Southern cuisine with very interesting menu. I had the Hoe Cakes and swordfish special which were both excellent. I can also attest to the scallop appetizer and really had a hard time deciding on an entree. The wine list isn't large but had something for every taste and budget. They had live music in the courtyard which was very nice and soft enough not to be intrusive. Great experience overall.

A Great Find
Rhett's is an outstanding restaurant in Southern Pines. The food is always amazing and the wine is very reasonably priced. I highly recommend it.

Great Southern Gourmet
Wonderful outdoor dining in their courtyard. Rhett stopped by the table personally multiple times to check on our group of 8. He truly takes the guest experience personally and it shows in the food and service. Try the southern chicken cordon blue or Rhett's take on shrimp and grits. The sides are also awesome. Locally sourced and fresh. We'll be back!

If you want local Carolina fare, Rhett's is the place to go. All three meals at our table were outstanding, but my shrimp and grits specialty was just out of this world. What a gem of a meal! Funky and fun little wine list. And Rhett himself stops by to chat about his food. Just a wonderful time and highly recommended.

One of the very best in the area.
Absolutely loved it, we have lived in the area for 4 yrs and it was our 1st visit. That was a huge mistake. The food is wonderful and how they focus on local NC produce and beers was very well received. The menu is not overwhelming and portions are ample. Chef Rhett goes out of his way to stop by and engage with all the tables. Can't say enough.....if you are in the area, make reservations and enjoy. Next time we will make sure to reserve outdoor seating to enjoy the local music in the pavilion.

A perfect evening
We sat outside in a weather perfect evening surrounded by great music (Tim Wilson). The food was wonderful, fresh and healthy . The service impeccable. A great way to celebrate a birthday ! Thank you Rhett....always enjoy your restaurant.

Rhett's is a perfect choice
We recently had Rhett's cater for a party. The neighbors loved the food. A few hadn't been to the restaurant. We took 2 other couples out with us. The weather was perfect, we sat outside. Enjoyed live music. Rhett came over a few times to check in on us. And the food is wonderful. The menu is with local grown products. I list the "tastes" menu so you can try a few more items, like small plates. And although it is summer, still enjoy the lobster bisque. Bon Appetit!

lunch here is a joy
meeting friends here is always a joy, be they starving or eating light there is something for everyone! Always fresh and yummy. The staff is friendly and helpful. I am a regular and feel loved and often spoiled by Rhett's....can't say enough good things about this great homey yet edgy place!

Great date night spot
My husband and I were in search of a great adult night out restaurant. This place fit the bill exactly! The service was great, the food was amazing and affordable, and the outdoor seating was nice. The band added nice background music without being overpowering. Highly recommend the shrimp ball appetizer and rack of lamb entree. I could have easily eaten my weight in the risotto, delicious! Overall great experience and we will be returning.

Although the menu is a bit
Although the menu is a bit limited, there is enough variety to choose a full 4 course dinner or a lighter meal. Our food was excellent and I would especially recommend the lobster bisque and the crab salad which were both exceptional. We will definitely return to this restaurant when we are in the area. We probably would not have found this spot, if it weren't for Open Table.

So thrilled to spend my birthday dinner at Rhett's... our Special occasion place for dinner. Thanks to Vince for the lovely birthday "Group sing-a-long". We enjoyed hearing Vince play awesome music as we dined. Thanks to Rhett's for a lovely evening.

Yummy as usual
Rhett's has become a favorite spot for our Girls Night Out.

Southern with a twist
Not a large menu, but something for everyone; local and fresh. Great crabcakes and great trout! When grilled chicken was mistakenly left off one of our salads, they added it at no charge. Reasonably priced wine. Oh! Marinated fresh green beans were delicious. Very interesting and different sides to choose from.

Ambiance friendly and open. Servers not overbearing, just right. We were not rushed. I have paid a lot more...for a lot less. Prices were in range with food. Decent proportions served in a reasonable time frame. Patio dining was charming. Look forward to a return. My first visit here.

Excellent fresh food and ambiance
The food was terrific and the outdoor setting with a 3 piece jazz band reminicent of New Orleans.

We really enjoy going to Rhett's! We've been there several times for lunch and the staff is always very friendly, helpful and competent. The food is fresh, interesting and tasty. This is a place that is worth going out of your way for... it's about 25 miles away from home for us. Overall a very pleasurable dining experience.

Great Southern Food
I am from Pennsylvania and golf at Pinehurst every year. I found Rhett's online four years ago and have gone there ever since. I enjoy Southern food and Rhett's does a great job in presenting classic Southern food with a modern flair. One of my fellow golfers is a "meat and potatoes" guy and he does not like Rhett's at all, so I guess it isn't for everyone. The wine list is notable for its incredibly reasonable prices for very drinkable wines.

Change of pace in Southern Pines
We visit Southern Pines occasionally and wanted some place for lunch that was relaxing and enjoyable. This was very good. If we lived in the area would like to try outside in nice weather.
