I am happy that Rhett Morris, original from the Winston-Salem area, decided to stay in North Carolina and continue his passion in Southern Pines. We recently had the joy of dining and Rhett’s Restaurant and love the food! Walking into the quaint dining area the green walls enhance the local art work on display. Soft music from above and various conversations from other tables make Rhetts a comfortable place to enjoy a meal.
Prior to making online reservations, that I thought was very convenient, I browsed the online menu and chose what I wanted to taste during my visit. I never order soup, but for some reason the R2 – Roasted Red Pepper Soup caught my attention. The description of a truly delightful blend of roasted red peppers and smoked Gouda cheese is very accurate. I can imagine this as a sauce in Fettucine. It was delicious and set me up for the main course consisting of a NC Ribeye with Roasted Garlic Risotto Truffle Mashed Potatoes. It will be difficult for me to try something different during my next visit because everything was too good not to want again. Fortunately I had a big appetite before arriving and was able to try the Chocolate Mousse Heath Bar Parfait. WOW!!! It was very delicious!!! If it wasn’t for a full stomach I would have had to try another.
Rhett adds an additional personal touch by visiting his quests to ensure that they are enjoying their meal.
