Pine Crest Inn Restaurant
From our famous Sunday breakfast buffet, to our pub and dinner menus, and the special events we host, Pine Crest Inn provides delicious food in a unique atmosphere. Mr. B's Pub consistently ranks as one of golf's best 19th holes. It's a perfect blend between locals and hotel guests. Located just off the lobby, this watering hole is a local favorite and a must-see for all who visit the Sandhills region of North Carolina. The memorabilia alone in the bar and lobby are worth a stop-in! And of course, the fireplace chipping board is something everyone should experience - a Pine Crest Inn tradition.

Great landmark restaurant in Pinehurst
We ate here for the first time 2 weeks and liked it so much we brought a friend with us and dined again
Very loud, mediocre food. History of the place was cool.
Great food. Lacked a little atmosphere and server seemed in a hurry for us to be served,eat, and leave.
We are a mom and daughters making our first visit to the Pinecrest dining room as one daughter recently bought a vacation home in Pinehurst.
Comfortable porch and patio. Traditionally cozy dining room with carpet, fireplace, and white napery. Menu offerings are traditional meats, poultry, and fish. Nice wine list. Excellent service from Ciera. Atmosphere oozed conviviality. A mix of golfers, tourists, locals, and horse people.
One of us ordered the 6oz beef filet which she said was excellent. Unfortunately, two of us ordered the Chilean Sea Bass special which was...not.
But everyone had room for the delicious creme brulee, so there was that.
We will definitely be back!
Our food was not that great. The fish was extremely fishy tasting and no one at our table ate it. Cute place for drinks maybe.
Food was excellent. Heather was terrific
Food was excellent. We had an underage server, who could not deliver alcoholic beverages,so there was a considerable delay in delivery of beverages…to the point of reminding each time that we had not gotten the beverages. We weren’t offer what the soup du jour or dessert offerings were.
Could have used more training we feel.
Rather old Fashioned, but well prepared, well presented “country club” food. Really a pleasant and low key evening! Will visit again!
Breakfast was very good and service was great. Part of our party was held up due to a parade in the Village. The waitress got our order into the kitchen before it closed at 10:30am. All of the food came out warm. The waitress was so helpful in taking care of our party of 10. Planning on going back next time in Pinehurst.
The atmosphere is quaint and lovely. The waitress was a staff sgt in the army and so awesome.
Pinecrest offers solid food in a down home old school Southern atomosphere. Definitely not fine dining but a decent choice. Famous for their pork chop which is delicious. Also had the stuffed trout. It was decent.
Great place and great food. Relax in the chairs on the porch or listen to music inside.
Good American menu! Great service!
Food was delicious and very reasonable prices. Would recommend.
Been here tons of times never had the experience we had before. Set reservations at 7 pm, called to notify will be 15 min late. Once we got to the restaurant the hostess was extremely rude! Telling me my party needs to sit down and order because they were going to close the kitchen. Then as we all sat down, she then tells me now that we are seated since we were 15 min late, we are going to have to wait to put the order in. Terrible hostess, just plain rude and hospitality is something she shouldn’t be doing at a fine dining restaurant like that! Our server was amazing very patient and polite, no issues with food or server.
Brunch at the Pine Crest Inn never disappoints - my favorite place to bring out-of-town guests because I know the food, service, and ambiance will be of the highest quality but at a reasonable price.
Had the 22oz pork chop and it was delicious. Service was spot on. Great venue.
Short staffed. Food portion for price pretty small.
Loved the crab stuffed mushrooms & the pork chop was to die for!!!
We enjoyed a lovely Sunday brunch and were very impressed with the COVID protocols in place for the brunch. Delicious food and attentive service!
I booked on open table for breakfast at 10:00am. We arrived at the restaurant a little early Luckily we did because they close for breakfast at 10:00. They do not take reservations on Saturday. Open Table or the restaurant doesn’t know what the other is doing. Food and service was excellent.
Service was a bit slow and impersonal but not to the point of annoyance nor did it detract from the meal. Charming old building
Great corned beef and cabbage meal for St. Patrick's Day. Delicious sundae and Irish coffee for dessert. Heather did a great job taking care of us.
Incredibly charming place with a rich history. Cant wait to go back!
We had a 6:30 reservation on a Saturday evening. For most of the time we were dining, we were the only customers. I’m sure this was influenced by the current Coronavirus panic, but suspect it was also because word has gotten around about a drop off in the dining experience here. There were 4 of us. Two of us got steaks. It appears they were cooked with the sous vide method - which results in a very bland taste. Mine was also slightly undercooked. A companion got the traditional pork chop and thought it was good. They have eliminated the traditional “relish tray” which was greatly missed by our party. Service was excellent — but then again our server only had one table to take care of.
We have dined here many times, but was disappointed all around this time. Instead of excellent ratings in all areas, could only rate this average experience.
From the moment you walk through the door you feel the warmth and charm of days in history. As you are seated at an elegantly set table you feel special yet very comfortable. From omelets made with your favorite ingredients to the fluffy waffles and tasty muffins, I highly recommend this Sunday morning buffet for everyone to enjoy.
The Pine Crest Inn never disappoints . After 30 years my wife and I still love and enjoy.
Valentine dinner— the food was absolutely amazing! I’ve heard about their wonderful brunches— our first time trying dinner. We’ll definitely be back.
Wait staff were very attentive and accommodating. We would definitely go back.
First time here. Enjoyed the food and drinks. Decent prices. The bar area is lovely. Service was great. Bonnie was our server, she was very friendly and pleasant. Try the short ribs, so good.
Pinecrest Inn is a very quaint place to visit with loads of golf history and once owned by Donald Ross. The dining room has been refurbished and is bright, white and clean. The prime rib was good and roasted to our liking. Service was excellent -- we were waited on immediately and greeted with a very nice waitress.
We were very disappointed. We had high expectations from the online reviews, where this was supposed to be a great 'locals' restaurant. The restaurant itself had great curb appeal, and the bar was fun to sit at before being seated at our table. But the hostess was rude to my husband when we arrived, our waiter was unprofessional and rushed us to place our order, my filet was so undercooked it arrived purple, and the mashed potatoes that were served with it tasted like they were 'instant'. We would definitely not return.
Wonderful Holiday setting in a Historic Southern Inn. Would have given the experience a 5 Star rating however, because of their popularity the crowd overwhelmed the staff by days end and the perfect ambiance faded with the rush to keep up. Note to self - enjoy the Pine Crest Inn early on Holidays when the atmosphere is compatible with the old Inn and the pace is Southernmost.
What an incredible experience we had... the service was great, and the food was top notch! Well done, Pinecrest Inn, we will be back and we are bringing our friends!!
Great staple restaurant, don’t expect inventive or cutting edge. I’d bet menu hasn’t changed in 15years. Service very good and food comes out prompt and correct.
Very disappointed that you took away relish tray before dinner. Some of our meals were good but 2 were not. Short ribs over cooked and tough
Great nostalgic place. Golf history and the food was excellent.
Enjoy chipping into the fireplace while imbibing a drink
