Great meal. Loved this place..
Absolutely fabulous!! The perfect place to celebrate Little Valentines Day! Amazing food, great drinks, and service that could not have been better or more fun!!
Food, wine, and service was exceptional. Ate in main dining room and although pub items were available, we had the salmon and tofu curry entrees. Both were outstanding. Perfect preparation, presentation, and outstanding flavor.
Had the same meal last two times and LOVED it (duck w/fried rice), although I was a little disappointed that the menu hadn't changed much since I was last there in early December. Our server was adequate, not great which has historically been my biggest issue with the restaurant. Last two times, Valerie took care of my table and was EXCELLENT. I didn't see her that evening so hopefully, she hasn't moved on.
Lastly, I think a major make-over is due. The main dining area is too formal, and if you sit on the casual side, you're on the couches (uncomfortable) or at a table with no privacy. Also, 4 seats at the bar is not enough.
Really loud drunk party next to us.
It is one of our favorites. The service is personable and top notch. We especially like the bar area for dinner. Try the rueben egg rolls !!
Ashten's always has fresh, local items with a twist. The atmosphere is welcoming and comfortable. Excellent service, Vickie is my favorite. Dress up or come in your breeches and boots. A wonderful asset to Downtown Southern Pines!
It was NYE, so I suppose they were extra busy, however our food, wreckfish, came out raw....unintentionally so. There were multiple tables I observed sending their food back as well....mostly because their main course was very under cooked. I was very surprised by this experience as Ashtens does have a good reputation.
It is in the South. I shouldn't have to elaborate. Even better it's in Southern Pines/Pinehurst NC, area. Everything is better there.
Visited Ashtons for New Year's Eve. For a packed evening I think they did pretty well. Loved their very reasonable corkage fee of $15.00 that let my wife and I enjoy a very fine bottle of wine from our collection.
