I took my elderly parents to Wolcott's for lunch last week. Our tastes vary widely so finding a place that is a knockout for all three of us is a struggle. Wolcott's did just that. We each ordered meals that were outstanding. I can't say enough about the service as well. I believe Britney was our server's name; she listened... More

Visiting recently in Southern Pines, we reserved for Friday night at Wolcott's. It is not a large place, but we were very pleased with the offerings as well as the service. The baked oyster appetizer was wonderful (and I am not an oyster fan). The chilled fruit gazpacho soup was really, really good (again, a special offering). My husband had... More

Delicious food beautifully presented. The thing I like most is they offer smaller portions (which are less expensive) Sometime when I eat out I am too full after having a drink, appetizer, salad, entree and dessert. But this small portion is perfect.

We stopped in Southern Pines on our way to the coast. We are a couple with sometimes competing wants. I want fresh local food in a setting with character. He wants something good to eat without a wait or fuss. We got both. Granted it was a Tuesday in March, so maybe we got lucky. This restaurant doesn't have a... More

Scott and his staff are fabulous! They put so much effort in to every detail. Every meal I've had has been incredible. Small and very charming. Might want to make reservations.

The Chef at Wolcott's is by far one of Moore County's finest. The food is always fresh, delicious, and artistic. Their waitstaff is on-point. The atmosphere is quaint and romantic. They are unique in the way they present their menu. They have a tasting or tapas portion and then a regular size portion to choose. I've enjoyed and suggest the... More

A special night out in Pinehurst area. So many places to choose from, but after reviewing the options on Trip Advisor and looking at the associated menus, we settled on Wolcott's. Our hotel had a shuttle to take us there and back....hooray! Wolcott's is in an old house that has been transformed into a lovely dining space, small but cozy.... More

Have eaten at some of the best restaurants all over the world and lived in every major southern port city in US. We ate there 3/2/17 and had one of the best meals we have ever had. There is a great deal of thought behind every dish and every pairing and all, including the servers, take a great deal of... More

We have been to Wolcott's on two occasions and it is fantastic! Great food, great service in a small but wonderful restaurant. You will need reservations for sure. They usually have a special drink each evening and while we are both wine people we found the martini special on both occasions to be interesting and really good. This is not... More

Stopped in for lunch after a morning of pampering at a local spa. I have not had much luck lately ordering burgers. They ask how I want it cooked (medium rare) and nobody seems to be able to cook it correctly. But I figured I would try once more. It was fantastic!! Juicy and flavorful. I will definitely be back.
