Dining & Events
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.

    Decided to eat hear after a 20 year hiatus b/c was the only place in town w available reservation (red flag #1). The place was nearly empty when we arrived for our 6:30 reservation (red flag #2). I ordered the crab stuffed mushrooms and my husband ordered the shrimp cocktail for apps. My mushrooms were soggy and floating in ?water. My husband said the shrimp tasted as if would be bad the next day. My wine was corked. For entrees I ordered the stuffed sole, my husband the 10oz prime rib. My sole was undercooked and stuffed with the same shell filled crab mixture as the mushroom app. My husband’s prime rib was grossly underdone even for medium rare. Both meals came with the “vegetable of the day” which was green beans that had been boiled w noticeable seasoning. The mashed potato side tasted as it came out of a box. All in all we both agreed it was probably the worst meal we’ve had in decades which is such a shame given it’s prime location in the Village of Pinehurst.

    The service was not good, she was not able to tell us about the salad wedge, that is what came on it. it was hard to get a refill of tea. and the mash potatoes were cold. Not a happy camper. It was our 23 wedding anniversary and I picked the place to eat, so I felt bad about how the night went.

    I took my out-of-town family to the Pinecrest Inn for dinner last night. It had always been one of my favorite restaurants in the Sandhills, but it was the first time I have been there since Covid, so I did not know what to expect. The Pinecrest came through with flying colors. The food was great, the service was perfect, and the ambiance was lovely. After dinner we went into the lounge and enjoyed the music. All in all, it was a fun evening.

    This was our first time in years visiting the Pine Crest In for dinner. Service was fantastic, food was good but not overwhelming as the stuffed sole had way too much sauce on it. We plan to go back for another try as the experience overall was good.

    My golf group loves to go to the Pine Crest Inn. The Bar is the best golf bar in the area. Our food in the main dining room was ok and, while we liked our waitress, the kitchen seemed very slow for the amount of guests that were dining.

    Our food was excellent, but it seems some of the traditions of the Pinecrest Inn (like the relish tray) have gone away. Also, while our server was good and obviously working very hard, the dining room was short-staffed, like so many places these days. Sarah was running hard and fast and very personable, but just couldn't handle all the tables on a timely basis.

    Restaurant refused to seat our party of 8 who arrived right on time for our OpenTable reservation. Told by manager that there was a private party and that they did not have any room. Manager dismissed confirmed OpenTable reservation and said that that was a problem with OpenTable allowing me to book a reservation when they apparently blocked the night. Manager told us we go to the bar which was first come first served. When I advised that he should call OpenTable to be sure that when their restaurant is blocked for a special event that it actually gets blocked, he told me to call. What?!?

    Enjoyed dinner last night here. Delicious corn flounder chowder followed by a blue cheese wedge salad. A bit too much dressing on the salad. Others enjoyed the cheese steak sandwich, burger and pork chop. Excellent server who was attentive and pleasant. Atmosphere is old south but cozy and comfortable. Will be back again.

    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!
