We arrived Saturday evening for dinner, in the outdoor courtyard. There was a band playing and they were terrific, also later in the evening a group of zombies showed up and performed Michael Jackson's thriller for halloween. The food here is amazing, the service was great and we had a wonderful evening. I highly recommend this place, I had the... More

First time visit to Rhett's. We are frequent diners in Southern Pines but had not dined at Rhett's yet. Beautiful afternoon and it was great to be able to sit outside in the patio area. Service was good and the attention we received was prompt and non-interrupting. My wife and I shared the apple salad which was pretty good. The... More

Went back here last week with my golf buddies. Had tried to go here two years ago, but was turned off by truly poor service. Decided to give it another try, but unfortunately our meal disappointed all six of us. Four people started with the special salad which wasn't so special, but was fresh, two of us had the lobster...

On a golfing trip with friends - four guys just wanting a meal were happily surprised by the delightful menu of local foods, and an innovative choice of meals. The Red Fish was wonderful and the bread pudding a 9 of 10! The waitstaff was attentive and prompt. The wine list was good. Overall a surprisingly excellent evening.

Three words - shrimp and grits. Incredible. We introduced our visiting German relatives to this southern specialty and they are now converts to the joys of Southern comfort food.

My husband and I are both allergic to mold and we were aware of it as soon as we entered. Since we were with friends we did not leave. In cooler weather the outdoor dining looked like a pleasant choice. They are well known for their lobster bisque but I have a shellfish allergy so unfortunately I could not order... More

We had the chicken salad sandwiches, amazing! The outside seating is in a beautiful courtyard. It's a little unkept during the day. Not much decoration anyways, but the food is great!

A nice place to sit on the patio and enjoy great food. Love when they also have outdoor musician playing to accompany your great meal. Fan of the menu and everything I've tried, including great summer cocktails.

We found Rhett's because we were looking for a place that didn't have such long waits/crowds. We ate outside in a shaded arbor, near a fountain, and it was just a perfect place to have lunch on a hot day. Our server was very quick to bring our iced tea, which was nice, but the meal itself took a pretty... More

We took my niece to lunch while visiting her for the day, and we were fortunate to have had a recommendation to Rhett's - what a great little place. The food was very good, and reasonably priced. The beet salad with goat cheese from the local Paradox Farm and Creamery was particularly good, as was the gazpacho. Others were happy... More
