Do not ever miss a chance to experience the world famous Carolina Dining Room breakfast buffet. No matter what you like, they have it, or will make it. Everything is fresh and delicious. This buffet alone is worth a trip to Pinehurst!!

Lots of choices on the breakfast buffet (variety of meats, fruit, pastries, grits, pancake, waffle, etc.) plus a nice omelet station where you can choose the ingredients in the omelet, and also egg white omelet is an option which was very nice. My son is allergic to dairy and the already made french toast had buttermilk in them so our... More

A couples retreat. Spent the weekend at the spa and relaxing in the village of Pinehurst. The spa staff was attentive and the dinner and breakfast buffet in the Carolina dining room was delicious. Breakfast was a little busy but the staff did their best to reduce your wait time.

One of the best golf destinations anywhere. The courses are spectacular and their restaurants are excellent. We had breakfast there twice and it had a huge selection of items. The service was spot on and very attentive. Highly recommended for both breakfast and dinner.

The Carolina Dining Room serves a huge breakfast buffet that fed hundreds of hungry golfers, mostly men, quite well. Lots of freshly prepared eggs and meats and potatoes and pastries as well as fruit and juice filled the bill to get lots of people in and out for their golf rounds. We also had dinner there a couple of evenings.... More

This may be the one meal many at this hotel guests look forward to. Pianist accompanied by a good breakfast buffet. It took several minutes to find someone to seat me. Once I was seated, I sat so long waiting for coffee that I finally got up to get my food- no pianist during all of this time. Got my... More

Came with my son Rick and Katie from Pinehurst while visiting them. Beautiful Inn with history and charm. Elegant dining room, wonderful service by Jessica, delicious buffet breakfast on a gorgeous Carolina Fall day. Eggs, omelets to order, flaky biscuits, chicken apple sausage, Nova lox, and fresh fruit. Rick led us on a walking tour after to get a feeling... More

Step back in time in Pinehurst's most expansive dining room, offering breakfast and dinner daily. Executive Chef Thierry Debailleul's amazing menu features hand-selected aged beef and signature dry seasoning rub for our steaks and chops. Menus change seasonally, invoking the fresh flavors of the area and our local farmers' picks.
The legendary breakfast buffet is known as the best in golf, and with good reason. Piano music sets the tone as you feast on made-to-order omelets, fresh fruit and Southern favorites.
