This place is awesome and I highly recommend to groups on a trip to Pinehurst. This is my second time eating here to cap off a golf trip and it was just as good this time as the first. Great food, atmosphere and service!

Phenomenal restaurant with a friendly and helpful staff. They make dining an experience rather than just a place to sit and eat dinner.

We loved the atmosphere. We did dress up as it was a date but, noticed others not so dressed. So maybe the dress code isn’t a huge deal. 🤷🏽‍♀️We were promptly seated. Food was amazing. Loved the atmosphere and our waitress took great care of us.

Very Posh
This place is definitely very upscale for Southern Pines, but it's worth the price and the service and food are excellent. The only other places I've eaten like this have been in multiple star restaurants in big cities. Also the Pumpkin Martinis were like dessert...for drinks and I wish they weren't only a special!More ... read more

Great Food
My husband and I had a great dinner here last night. He had the rib eye and I had the veal special. Both entrees were cooked just right and absolutely delicious. I had the beet salad and he had the wedge. Both salads were well as the entree sides. Decaf coffee with apple cobbler ended a perfect evening. Staff were foll ... read more

Every thing that crossed my lips was delicious. Properly prepared. Service was impeccable except that our initial course (soups and salads) the men were served before the women. They corrected that through the rest of the meal.

We went as our last date night before we had our first child. So we were wanting a good place to go to and we were not disappointed! For appetizers we ordered lobster rangoons and crab cakes. The rangoons were delicious! And the crab cakes were really good! He ordered a ceasar and I ordered a house for salads. We enjoyed them both!   ... read more

Had a lovely evening with out of town guests. Our only complaint was that they were not social distancing the tables. All tables seemed to be in service and they were too close together . Seems you need to ask NOT to be seated next to another group, which one couple did do. Otherwise a perfect evening and we will go back!

So I am a steak expectations for a $40 dry aged steak were high. It should melt in my didn’t. It was an anniversary dinner, they rested us was “good” but not what I expected for a $140 ticket for two.

Continues to be one of my favorite places for special occasions. Food is excellent. All of the wait staff are friendly, courteous, and responsive. They come by the table at a reasonable rate to check on drinks, take up used plates etc. Bathrooms are clean. It’s a little pricey but not outrageous. It’s definitely worth it!

I have eaten at Southern Prime Steakhouse 4 times, but this time I was not impressed. The food was still good, however our service was like we were nonexistent.
