Pineridge Hollow

Do you every want to just get away from it all? Well, if that sounds like your ideal weekend, I’ve found the place for you. Pineridge Hollow is only 15 minutes out of the city up highway 59, but once you get there you feel much farther away. With a home decor shop, restaurant, petting zoo, and plant shop, PRH is the perfect getaway. It also seems that this is THE place to get married. And I can see why with its elegant, charming, and ambrosial atmosphere. There were 2 weddings on the same day when I was there; luckily they hadn’t showed up yet.

After I checked out the menu online and saw they had a club – it was on. I picked up a buddy and just drove. It’s always fun to go to a new restaurant, especially when you don’t know anything about it and it takes 40 mins to get there. We passed the golf course, then the sand dunes, and then pulled into the PRH parking lot.

We were seated right away, and everything felt right. Within a few minutes I had a club on the way and was ready to chow down. The Country Club is what they call it, and you can either get it with grilled chicken or cut up chicken strips. I went for the grilled chicken, but really contemplated getting both. One thing that stood out on the menu is that it has garlic aioli sauce on it – unfortunately, I couldn’t taste it. This club was fairly small in comparison to some that I have had, and the taste was a little underwhelming. I am not saying it’s BAD, but it wasn’t GOOD. Also, at 16 dollar’s it is overpriced, no doubt about it.

The real stars of the day were the “house-cut Kennebec fries.” I don’t know what Kennebec puts in his fries, but holy shat they are good!

Next time I go back it will be at night – because I would love to see it lit up and take in a meal on the screened-in patio. Although the clubhouse sandy doesn’t make the drive worth it, PRH as a whole makes it worth it. Great getaway, lovely atmosphere, and great fries – check it out.

Also, my pictures don’t do it justice. Check out their website: pineridgehollow.com
