You can get your food to-go or eat in, and if you eat in, they have an outdoor seating area for days when the weather is nice.



Chapman’s Food & Spirits in Downtown Southern Pines is open for lunch and dinner, and they’ve got a great menu with a good variety of choices for kids and adults. The atmosphere is fun, the food is flavorful, they have outdoor seating, and they’re generous with their pours (which is good for parents), making it a family favorite.
