It should have been a clue, when all of the great reviews mentioned the Sunday brunch. We were there from 6:00 to 7:00 on a Friday night. We were the ONLY people there. The menu shown by open table barely matched what we were handed at the table. (Where was that Maryland crab cake and North Carolina trout? Yes there was a crab cake, but neither was it named or prepared as Maryland style. And there was no trout of any kind on the menu or available as special request) many other things were also missing. Overall, the quality of the food was high, but overpriced given the overall dining experience.
The food was amazing! But the service was personal and very attentive. The best service we have had in along time!
Great place for Sunday brunch. A huge buffet with choices for everyone. I particularly love the seafood section of the brunch bar - fresh shrimp, oysters, and salmon are wonderful. The omelette bar is also wonderful for made to order eggs. Don't forget the desserts!
Blair the manager, is such a little cutie! Sunday brunch was amazing!
A thoroughly enjoyable experience. The service was excellent without being intrusive and the grand-piano (player) piano was conducive to conversation and enjoyment. The meal was excellent with the only shortfall being cool eggs benedict. We recommend anyone with a special occasion to celebrate to make a reservation and enjoy.
We were not aware or informed that there were two large groups, one in the "private room" and one that took over the entire rest of the restaurant. We were unable to have a conversation because of the noise, people running back and forth, people milling around our table. It was very unenjoyable, and the restaurant should have notified us when confirming the reservation so we could have made alternative plans.
Very nice experience. Fresh shrimp & great cocktails sauce, excellent rack of lamb & salmon entree. Great service & nice view. Noise level perfect for easy conversations. All in all a superior dining experience.
We had a few hick-ups with the service but everyone was friendly and did what they could do to make us happy. The food was FANTASTIC! We had a great Valentines day!
Great food, service and ambiance.
Very nice setting very picturesque and food was great it was a lot of selection
Excellent value for Sunday brunch. Crab legs, shrimp, raw oysters!
We ending up eating in the bar which left us slightly disappointed & the menu was different than online but we were pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed the meal
Booked this late on a Friday night and was impressed. They had just sat a group of twenty but really took great care of us. Best rolls I have ever eat. Amazing. Everything was good. Servers Tyre and Jim were great. Like stepping back into the early 20th century. Did I mention the rolls. Amazing.
We had a reservation in the main dining room, but they were kind enough to call and let us know there was a group of 150 dining that night. Not very romantic for your 25th wedding anniversary!! We ended up eating in the bar, same menu. The staff is outstanding, friendly, helpful. The food was average, not bad, but just nothing outstanding. Very home cooked meal feel. (I had chicken parmesan and my husband had catfish)
Just a very nice place to have brunch with my wife.
Outstanding brunch experience. I could go on and on about the variety of food (crab legs, lamb chops, carved beef etc) but let's simply say the variety, quality and quantity of food was OUTSTANDING. To top it off the attentiveness of the service staff was as good as we ave ever experienced. On Sunday go after 12:00 so you can enjoy the bottomless champagne, mimosa's and Bloody Mary's.
If available get a table on the air conditioned veranda and you get a great view of the 18th hole and green.
All this for the almost hard to believe $27/pp! If you are in the Pinehurst area this Sunday Brunch is a "must stop."
We took two of our friends out for Sunday Brunch after Church. Arrived and were greeted well and taken to our seats promptly; nice table location. Piano music was continuous during the meal. We were immediately offered either a Bloody Mary or Mimosa. Wonderful selection of breakfast items, plus oysters on half shell, shrimp, and crab legs. Then, there was beef carving station with a great cut of meat as well as a very good selection of salad and vegetables. Of course, there were ample deserts. Will be back again soon.
The Sunday brunch buffet at Mid-Pines is second to none. The food is outstanding, the service is incredible, the historic hotel is full of charm and atmosphere, and the total experience delightful.
Last year my wife and I had a great Valentines dinner and we're looking forward to a repeat. But how things had changed in 2016 and not for the better! The food was good, but not great. Portion size was way down, no complimentary champagne, and a service charge added to the bill. We will NOT be back.
From parking to leaving we felt very special welcome and wonderful brunch you know everyone there put there guest first and really care how food looks and tastes
