    Where is The 1895 Grille located?

    The 1895 Grille, a contemporary Southern restaurant, is in the historic Holly Inn at Pinehurst Resort in the town of Pinehurst, North Carolina, an hour southwest of Raleigh. Surrounded by the pine forests and rolling hills that make up North Carolina’s Sandhills region, Pinehurst is an oasis for visitors, offering shopping, outdoor recreation, spas and fine dining. On New Year’s Eve 1895, The Holly Inn, now listed as a National Historic Landmark, opened its doors, becoming the first hotel in the area and establishing Pinehurst as a place to retreat. The dining room of The 1895 Grille is in The Holly’s original carriage entrance and the dining room, staff and menu reflects the humility and elegance of its origins.

    What is the dress code at The 1895 Grille?

    The dress code at 1895 Grille is business casual for both breakfast and dinner. The website requests dress slacks, collared shirts and dress shoes for men, and corresponding attire for women, and specifies no jeans or denim. Despite that request, many men show up for early reservations wearing a blazer, button down, dress shoes and a pair of crisp jeans, though as the night wears on, fewer pairs of jeans and more pairs of slacks can be seen at tables throughout the dining room. That said, a good number of diners treat an evening at 1895 as an evening out and dress the part. Flamboyant cocktail dresses stay in the closet, but the little black cocktail dress makes frequent appearances.
