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!!

Description
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.
