The Donald Ross Grill is newly renovated and sits overlooking the 18th green for Pinehurst No 2. Definitely the place to relax after your round or just have lunch!

The food is great but the cost stood out to me. I was expecting $30 cheeseburgers but everything was a reasonable cost considering the location and relative cost of everything else at Pinehurst #2. I had the all you can eat soup, salad, and sandwich buffet for $13. It was perfect for after the 7 mile walk around the course.

Take the tram from the main hotel up to the Pinehurst #2 course and have lunch here. Mid-priced but food was awesome. I had the chicken caesar salad and I think there was an entire chicken breast in there! Service was wonderful, they just could not have been nicer. Then walk outside and see the Paine Stewart Statue As a... More

It's located on the famous #2 pinehurst golf course. The dining area is is elegant abut the prices are reasonable. The service is excellent and you can dine and converse in comfort. Excelent place for a business lunch, group get together or to bring a friend or date. Great food, quiet surroundings, and time to talk.

What was good was that as soon as we finish our round at 1PM...we went right into the 91st lounge. And after we ordered our beers...instead of ordering and waiting for something off the menu...we went for the buffet. Now the food was average. But it was quick and easy and we had a decent selection. Not your fare if... More

In addition to golf course designer and head professional, Donald Ross also served as Grill Manager during part of his tenure at Pinehurst. We've kept his name for this favorite lunch eatery for golfers. Located at the Resort Clubhouse, the Donald Ross Grill serves an array of salads and sandwiches, homemade soups and hot entrees, and a full buffet during our busiest seasons. Enjoy outdoor or indoor dining with views of the putting green and golf courses.
