Not a good idea to put a party of 11 women in the bar area...everybody ends ups screaming to be heard. Couldn’t wait to get out.
Food was great.

This was our first time in Southern Pines and, of course, Ashten's. The food was diverse, fresh and the correct proportions. I hate it when the entre is so large you miss out on desserts. They had some very good sounding desserts. I had the Bubba Bowl, which was tasty and featured black rice. We will return.

My wife and I celebrated our 17th Anniversary with Ashten's tonight, and it was AWESOME!! Every member of the Ashten's staff we came in contact with wished us a Happy Anniversary, and made us feel welcome, and special. The food was supurb as usual, and there was plenty of it. If you want great food no matter what the occasion, Ashten's is the place to be.

Ashten’s was recommended by our hotel, The Jefferson Inn. The ambience was nice, the table they chose for us was perfect, the meal was Devine, and the creme brûlée, to die for!

Ashten's has a nice menu and attentive servers. The pub is a nice casual setting and the couches are a super fun alternative for a date night. I have been here twice and both times the food was very good.

My husband and I took his 89 year old mother (and his brother) there for dinner. It was excellent and we all loved the food!!!! We recently purchased a house in the Village of Pinehurst. We have been to Ashten's twice and I would say it is our favorite restaurant!

All restaurants make mistakes it's what happens afterwards that counts. In our case my wife's fillet was over cooked from medium rare plus to well done.
We told the server when we could find her and she took the plate back to the kitchen it was a good 20 minutes when the replacement steak came this time blood rare. We finally surrendered and asked for the check. The owner came over and all he said was that sometimes our little kitchen gets overwhelmed
He could have cared less.
A no go for me again

Ashten’s came highly recommended by a friend. My husband and I went with some friends for a date night. The service was wonderful the entire night. When we arrived, we were offered their private room that seats six, which was perfect for our group. The drinks, appetizers and dinner were all phenomenal. Our waitress was funny and extremely patient with us. We will definitely be back!

The food was great. I wanted the salmon, though it had not been delivered yet for the day... I thought it was going to be down hill from there. So I "settled" pork shank. It was fall off the bone, mouth watering, rich complex favors that you can't get enough of...

So the chocolate chip cookie dessert was warm gooey and delicious. I wish it had milk or icecream instead of small cup of heavy cream. I wanted the contrast to cut the richness after such a heavy meal.

Been there many times and it was really good, but this time it was not so great. There were 2 VERY loud tables of 4 (laughing constantly LOUDLY) AND the server turned on the TV! Those things have never happened before! Strike 1.
Strike 2: As an appetiser I had the Asparagus Soup special which tasted like Asparagus and nothing more. The little pastry with tiny Asparagus that came on top was decent - I'd have liked to have 4-5 of those instead!
Strike 3: As an entree I had the Seared Tuna. It was more like a soup with noodles, topped w/ tuna (Asian flavored) . It was strictly OK. Not special at all.

On the upside, husband had Hubby had the Fall Salad, which he loved - though it had a lot of greens and very few of the toppings (an Ashten's tendency). He liked my soup better than I so we switched 1/2-way through. He also had the fish & chips as his entree and was pleased, though not overwhelmed.

Overall, it was not a wonderful dinner but we are looking forward to the next time because it's more common to have a great time at Ashten's than the blah time we had tonight.

First time to Southern Pines. Found Ashtens on Open Table. It was a beautifully appointed restaurant cozy and elegant. We had wonderful service and some of the best food we have ever tasted. Yummy homemade biscuits with molasses, trout that tasted straight from the stream and delectable salmon. Also unforgettable the fresh salads. The wine was also top notch. Our only regret we had no room for dessert. 5 stars all the way!

Valentines dinner with my husband of 34 years. Have been to ashton’s Many times and always enjoy our evening. We were not disappointed. The only thing-we were seated in the basement. A room we didn’t even know existed. It appeared as an add on to accommodate the extra diners. Otherwise everything was great.

This was my first visit to Ashten's and I had high expectations. The food and service were very good. My only disappointment was out seating. The "main" dining room is lovely but the entry door and hostess station were next to our table. The hostess answers the phone there and greets guests. All that activity was a bit disruptive; however, once I adjusted to it and had one of their special cocktails, I was able to relax and enjoy the meal. The corn flake crusted crab cake was delicious and the salad on which it was served was fresh and flavorful. I will go back but I'm going to request a table in the bar. There's also a dining room and speakeasy in the basement.

We had an exceptional meal. What a treat to find this restaurant so close to where we live. Since this was our first time there and we were curious about the other dining spaces available, our waitress gave us a tour after our meal. This will definitely become one of our favorite dining places!

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.

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.

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.
