Very accommodating chef. Good selection of vegetarian and gluten free dishes. Very good service. Great food!
Fresh, delicious, fun
We had a fabulous dinner at Rhetts and will be back soon! Service was great, menus (there are many) are interesting and seasonal, outside dining was fun with live music, and the food was superb. I had shrimp and grits, my husband had steak, and we each had fabulous salads, good wine, and fresh homemade cookies for dessert. We met and chatted with Rhett, a personable and talented chef, who runs the restaurant and also does catering. Highly recommend!
5 of us came down from Fort Bragg for a birthday lunch and we loved Rhetts! The birthday girl said she had the best shrimp and grits ever! Thanks for helping us make her smile!!
Fantastic service, unbelievable local food!
We had great service, and the chef checked on us several times throughout our meal. All staff members were super friendly and the food was absolutely delicious. We chose to eat outside by the water fountain but the fans kept us cool, even though it is June in North Carolina!!! We recommend the house made cake- different flavor everyday but we've never been disappointed!! My favorite is their strawberry cake with basil-lemon icing. YUM!!!!
Do Not Miss This One!
After a few disappointing meals at places that were recommended, we just happened to pick this one by chance. What a pleasant surprise when we were served the best meal we had the entire trip! This is a must do if you are in the Pinehurst area!

We had a great time at Rhett's. They seemed to be having a staffing issue so service was a bit slow but they were utilizing everybody to try to keep the customers happy. We really didn't mind the slow service as we were outside and enjoying the great weather and ambiance ! Looking forward to going there again!

Fried green tomatoes and pork dish were outstanding. The pea salad served with the mahi mahi was bland though the mahi itself was delicious. Restaurant is very cute and outside seating was perfect. They had live music that was just right, just loud enough so conversation was still possible.
My fiance and I were looking for somewhere to meet with our minister to discuss our upcoming wedding. This place was something we stumbled upon as neither us or the minister are from this area. We got there for an early meal (5 PM) and we were promptly seated. The restaurant is in a unique location within Southern Pines, and it made for a unique venue for the meal and meeting. The food was very well prepared, and the menu consisted of great locally connected food items. Our waitress was new, and it showed, but it did not take away from the evening. Food was fairly priced for what we got and the presentation. Overall we enjoyed it, and would come back.

You can not beat Rhett's roasted red pepper soup and rosemary pork rinds. Always very impressed with the food and our dining experience. This is always our favorite spot when we are in town!!
Wine Dinner was Amazing!
We had a fabulous time at Rhett's wine dinner. The wine was fantastic, the food was savory and cooked to perfection, and the atmosphere was very romantic for Valentine's day. They had a rose at every table, and our names on the menu which was so sweet. The ribs were incredible, I am so glad I got those, and the cheese plate was our favorite! We love this restaurant, it has such quality local grown food, and Rhett, the owner himself explained every dish to us. We will definitely be back!

This restaurant never disappoints. I brought friends tonight who had not yet experienced the restaurant before and they all loved it. From our charming and knowledgeable waiter to the amazing food, this restaurant is one you don't want to miss. The garlic and rosemary pork rinds call your name with a snap, crackle and pop. They are SO good, you will not stop talking about them. Make sure you share because the bowl is huge!! This is our FAVORITE spot when we are in town... Can't wait for our next visit!!
Great little place
Went there for lunch with my wife amd 10 month old. We were greeted by Rhett himself. Very cute place and food was great. Would definitely eat there again.

Great food. Hiwever, hamburger buns were a little hard. Maybe they were toasted?
Glad we tried this place!
The food was amazing! We noticed that a lot of the ingredients were locally grown and everything tasted so fresh! Our waitress was eager to help us find the perfect dish for each of us and was very informative. We will definitely be going back! Delectable food!

We LOVE Rhett's and are always amazed at the menu selection and preparation. Service and attention to detail are top notch. Chef/owner often greets customers and makes guests feel very welcome. Although I always try to order something new each time, I always have to start with the garlic and rosemary pork rinds! Pure heaven!! This is a MUST stop whenever we are in town

Sat outside and enjoyed our dinner. Our waitress was super friendly and made our last minute relaxing evening just perfect. Thank you.
Rhett never disappoints. Fine service. Great ambience. And the meal is consistently excellent. Lunch and dinner. Really enjoy the outside dining.

We were greeted by a friendly staff person, we were seated promptly at our reservation time. The waitress was knowledgeable about the items on the menu & cheerfully answered our questions. The food was very delicious and the fruit that was a side, was fresh and quite delicious as well. I will go to Rhett's again.
One of our favorites
Notable chef prepares fresh ingredients for a special night out
Birthday lunch for our 86 years young Mother was a success. Unfortunately it was too hot for her to eat by the fountain outside. The pulled pork sandwich, fried green tomato sandwich, gouda mac and cheese, and the sweet potato fries were all hits!
A lovely evening
My husband and I really enjoyed our meal this past Saturday evening. The server was also excellent! We appreciated Rhett coming to our table to see how everything was! We will definitely be back! The music of Tom Bernett added to our lovely evening out
Better than we had heard...(We heard it was great)
12 on a 10-scale. Food, decent wine list and well priced. Awesome venue and service. Rhett was right there among his team and that left us with a great impression. Will go back again and again.
Nice casual courtyard dinning, excellent food dishes, polite and helpful services. Would highly recommend this to anyone.
Outside dining a plus!!
All seven of us appreciated the use of pictures via a handheld tablet. Unique and great to see exactly what we ordered. One of the favorites at our table was the lobster bisque. So flavorful. All of our dishes were a little on the cool side and some felt they lacked some spice. I had the delicious soft shelled crab appetizer. It was a little on the cool side. A perfect portion after gathering for drinks before dinner at a friend's home. The setting was delightful. Loved the music played by Tom. Made us all want to dance. Question is could you handle 14 at one time? Our group meets on each Friday evening and it is hard to find a restaurant that can handle that many at once. We are tired of the chains and was wonderful to dine at a locally owned established. All in all we will be back to try some more of Rhett's dishes.

Great meal, as always. Great live music on outdoor patio. Very dog friendly!!
Friday night dinner
Delicious food, with some healthy choices. Pleasant, efficient staff. I've been to Rhett's several times and always had a great experience. Looking forward to the next time!
Rhetts, always a pleasant dining experience.
Rhetts has an interesting, diverse menu comprised of a few carefully selected appetizers, soups, salads, entrees. -- which is refreshing. The specials, also carefully selected, are presented by wait staff from an ipad, allowing guests to see the items -- a nice touch. Courses arrived artfully arranged on each plate. The entrees were tasty, the house salads, all with homemade dressings, were particularly good. Serving size is just right.

This place was amazing! Rhett himself came out to make sure everything was prepared perfectly! Craft beers from all over North Carolina, and excellent bourbon list. The menu is small but well diverse and of the highest quality! You must make this a date night place with that special someone! Prices were fair and will definitely visit again! Can't wait for the warmer weather so I can take advantage of the courtyard seating. Wine tastings are every Thursday starting in April! I would go back tomorrow but they are closed on Sundays, lol.

Nice restaurant and the food was reasonably good but not sophisticated enough for a foodie.
Rhetts was Fantastic!!
It is hard to phrase in few words the delight I found dining at Rhett's. I took my wife there for Valentine Day. I found as we approached the entrance of Rhett's an inviting atmosphere. The wine dinner was a five course meal with different wines for each entree. We had our reservation at 7:00 p.m. I found when we were seated at a romantic table with a rose left at the table for my wife, nice touch Rhett! made points with my wife! Rhett came personally out during each course of the meal and explain his process with what he prepared from his all local farm to table selection. All of the wines selected complimented each course to a tee! What a delight in finding Rhett's, I would recommend this as the the top place to go when in Southern Pines NC.
First visit to Rhett's
I recently moved to Pinehurst from New England. Saturday evening was my first visit to Rhett's . I had a friend visiting from New Hampshire as my guest. We decided to try small plates and to order " local flavor". Our meal was outstanding and the wait staff attentive. You know a meal is delightful when you are still discussing it the next day! I look forward to dining at Rhett's when the patio is open and will most certainly share my experience with others. As a "newcomer" it is great to find a great local restaurant.
Excellent experience at Rhett's...a real treat!
We enjoyed New Years Eve at Rhett's and we were happy with our decision! Having been there a couple of times over the years we knew we would be treated well and experience some great food! Highly recommend a visit to Rhett's whenever your travels bring you to the Pinehurst/Southern Pines area.
Great food and service at reasonable prices and the chef comes out to get your thoughts on both.
Good food, great service, all around a nice lunchtime experience
Really enjoyed a night out at this great place! Awesome atmosphere, service, food and fun!
First Time Rhett's
First I have to say, the ambiance at Rhett's was wonderful. We had a nice spot outside in the courtyard area and there was a guitarist playing quietly throughout the evening. I couldn't have asked for better ambiance. The food wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. I think part of the issue was that the food was warm at best and quickly cooled since it did not come out hot. We had the vegetarian lasagna and the chicken cordon bleu. Both of which were ok, but not quite what I had expected. I will say the ingredients seemed very fresh, it just seemed to lack a little something. I would certainly go back and give it another shot. As mentioned, the ambiance (and my company) made up for any other shortcomings. :)
