The only issue was that it was overbooked. With reservations there was an hour wait. Super crazy crowded in the front area. I felt bad for the wait staff....clearly understaffed and they were running themselves ragged. Food was top notch. We ended up sitting in the stairwell. I only saw a few people who seemed extraordinarily upset about the long wait even with reservations.

We went for Valentines Day. Had reservation for 7:00. We arrived at 6:58 and were told no tables were available yet. We were eventually seated at 7:30 and then another 10 minutes before a waiter came to our table. Long story short - we got our of there around 9:30. Reservations were required, so it’s apparently the reservation process was mismanaged and they tried to squeeze too many people in at a given time and/or did not plan adequate time between settings. On the positive side - the hostess was nice and she was assisting in clearing and setting tables so those of us waiting (there were several) could be seated. Also, the food was great!

Christmas dinner was SPECTACULAR! I had the shrimp linguini, a Caesar salad to start, and a creme brûlée for dessert— all was impeccable! We paired the dish, and a lasagna with the Cavit Pinot Noir 2017. We all thought it paired nicely with all dishes. I will definitely be back— and to stay the night at the B&B, of course!

This would have been a solid 5 star in every category except for the fact that it was way too warm/hot in the room which made an otherwise 5 star experience uncomfortably warm. Great food, great wines. Excellent service. Will definitely try again.

We have loved this place in the past, but there must be some issues now. We had a reservation, only to find the lights out and the doors closed on a Saturday night at 6:30. The restaurant was not available on OpenTable a couple of months ago, and the website menu showed a shift to cheaper, ordinary fare you could get anywhere. We hoped that since we were once again able to make a reservation, and the menu on OpenTable suggested a return to the dishes we always enjoyed in the past, but........

It was very cold inside even though we were seated near a fireplace, the fireplace was not on. One other table was very loud discussing business during dinner, which we found to be a distraction.

We had gone to Whispering Pines several years in a row until we had a bad experience there about three years ago. We tried the restaurant this Valentine's Day and were pleased to see that the food and service were back to the levels we had expected. The food was quite good, the portion size was perfect, and the service left nothing to be desired. We are glad we gave them a second chance.

VERY DISAPPOINTED!
WAS 4-5 stars after four romantic dinners here last 5 years. 2.5 stars overall for the following:

1 - OVERBOOKED
2 - discourteous staff - customers always precede staff while walking to their table
3 - stuck in front of a fake fireplace (added table re: overbooked), lots of staff traffic
4 - we both almost needed booster seats due to WORN OUT CHAIRS; my wife sat on her coat
5 - waiter clumsily delivered our meal and slid my wife's plate 1/2 way over edge of the table & left
6 - waiter removed my sorbet before I was finished - without asking
7 - my petite filet was ordered medium rare and was delivered RARE - ate only around edges

2.5 stars max - OK is a long way from great. We were too disappointed to complain, and frankly we believe it wouldn't help anyway. Not sorry for this review and not going back.

They probably follow the path of Deep Fork Grill, where we had a very similar experience on Mother's Day a few years ago. Sad.

Service was poor we had to keep asking for our courses. At one point after our soup and salad we waited 20 min and our server ask if we were ready for dessert. I explained we had only had soup and salad and he looked confused. Two tables seated after us completed their meals and left before we received our third course. The duck my wife was served was inedible so we shared my fillet.

Because of the combination of quality food, service, and ambiance, my wife and I have made Whispering Pines Inn & Restaurant "our place" for romantic dinners on birthdays, anniversaries, and Valentines. We also make it a point to take fine-dining "first-timers" in the family to Whispering Pines. Without exception, these newbies absolutely love the experience and leave with the bar set very high for their future dining tastes!

Food was delicious however we had to wait way to long for our entre. I do believe they forgot about us. At one point in the wait our waiter asked if we had gotten our desert.

Charming, quiet restaurant outside the bustle of the city. From appetizer to dessert, food is superb. Extensive wine list, my wife enjoyed the special cocktail of the evening a tart apple mojito. The lamb chops are wonderful, with a perfect sauce to accompany them, and the steak diane was delicious. We highly recommend this place if you're looking for a quiet and leisurely dinner.

We decided to go celebrate our daughters completion of her final college exam with dinner and drinks. The staff member David was very personable and made us feel right at home. Dinner was great! Steaks, Duck and pork along with soups and dessert. Every detail was spot on. Great place to enjoy a very relaxing dinner with friends or family.
