Limited menu options. Bland marinara sauce. Online menus difficult to read, website difficult to use. Huge slider with ads for food not on the menu at the top before guest is presented with a menu of options they can order. Print too small on online menu, need to scroll and zoom to be able to use. Pasta was not cooked, noodles clumped together.

Came in on Monday to celebrate a late Valentine's Day, and sat at the bar. Place seemed decently busy for a Monday. Found out they had a filet & wine special for $25, and it was more than worth it! I started out with a Corpse Reviver No.2, my boyfriend had the Cigar City on draft and we shared a caesar salad. Everything was smooth, service was prompt, but not intrusive. Ambiance, food & drinks were fantastic. We may just become Monday regulars. Thank you!

Great spot for a evening meal. Prices are mid range and food excellent for the price. Slightly faster service would have been appreciated but an overall good experience.

Valentines Eve Dinner reservations and, as always, the food was amazing. Our server, Evolina, took excellent care of us and was very attentive. My shrimp and grits entree was seasoned to perfection and my husbands steak was precisely how he ordered it. The red velvet cheesecake dessert was the exact conclusion that the meal needed. It should be added to the regular menu!

It was our first time dining in. The comfort food menu was a very good value and the food was delicious. Our server was very personable and provided us with additional insight on some of the dishes. She was checked in with us often without hovering. We enjoyed our meal and plan to come back again.

My $13. martini was very weak and did not taste like the description. Meat loaf dinner was mediocre. I did go to hear The Hot Sauce Band and saw them here the week before. We enjoyed them so much the first week and opted to come back but were deeply disappointed at their performance. It was so loud, it sounded like a big noise. I will not see them again anytime soon and will not return soon to The Pines for promoting this loud performance.Nancy Genet

Best deal in town especially on Comfort Food night! Staff super helpful (Evangeline?) was wonderful. Drinks were plentiful as was the food. Meat loaf was good but string beans were delicious! Chicken Cutlet good but could have used a bit more sauce. Salad was fresh and crisp. Bread - could make a meal of the bread and butter! Keep up the great work and we will be back!

Food was great, the server was attentive. The interior is nice but a bit cold - literally and figuratively - in part because of our proximity to a patio door. But other than that, the experience was good and we look forward to going back.

Normally, the food is better. This evening, they were short on staff. The owners and hosts are always pleasant and welcoming. Our server (same one last four times we ate there) is wonderful. She is knowledgable but doesn't hesitate to ask others if she is unable provide an adequate (usually quite detailed) answer. The Pines does a wonderful job, especially during the restrictions due to COVI-19, providing promotions during week nights. Social distancing and restricted number of diners per party are observed.

We continue to return to The Pines - it is thee restaurant in RB, excellent food, just the right amount of vibe and friendly/competent staff. Highlights of the fall menu - the crem of crab soup, their steaks and rockfish. You can't go wrong! A great place to celebrate special occasions, just grab dinner or even snacks and a cocktail. You won't be disappointed.
