I’ve had breakfast at The Carolina Dining Room numerous times now, and not once have I been disappointed. The food is fresh, and delicious. The presentation and variety is wonderful. You won’t be sorry if you decide to dine at The Carolina!

We love the Carolina Dining Room, but we only enjoyed it for breakfast on this trip. It’s beautiful and when you enter, it seems like you’re stepping back into another century. Beautifully furnished, exceptional service, and a piano player! The breakfast buffet is huge (lots...More

The food was good. The only issue I had was with the 20% gratuity charge. I know the servers do not get the 20%, they only get a fraction of the charge and the remainder goes for adminstration fees.

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.
