Huge servings, big prices, big group
We had a group of 14 from a business meeting. They accommodated our reservation needs. Gave us an extra server to handle us and they were very timely. I had the blackened fish taco nachos that were very good. I talked myself into the special for the night, Beef Stroganoff. I was quite disappointed in the stroganoff. It was overpowere ... read more

A Favorite for Casual Dinner
I tried my first fish tacos at Chapman's and fell in love!!! Haven't had any anywhere else that were as good! Their other dishes are delicious as well, and portions are large! Would highly recommend!

Food is excellent but takes very long to reach the table. Outdoor seating and bar seating is available as well as regular tables. Nice furnishings and friendly staff. One table is a gorgeous long slab of tree trunk. The bathrooms are interesting.

There were eight of us dining for our sons 37th birthday including work colleagues. I can thoroughly recommend their ribs, which I normally avoid, as they were superb. The service and ambiance was brilliant and very busy. Drinks were more reasonably priced than anywhere else in the town.

So, in reading other reviews I must say I'm shocked as our experience was spectacular. We went for lunch, were sat fairly quickly, and our food was out in a matter of minutes.

I enjoy the food here, but it's perhaps better for dinner than lunch, as the service is unbearably slow. Today we didn't get our food within the hour, and it's not the first time. The waitstaff seems a bit discombobulated, and the bus boys are clumsily dropping things.

We visited on a Friday and had a late lunch with friends. Sat in the bar which was very comfortable. They were not busy but the service was great and the food super yummy.

I had not planned on going to this restaurant but when driving thru Southern Pines I noticed some people sitting outside with some drinks so I parked to take a look.
