Celebrating special occasions in the greater Fayetteville area does not mean limiting yourself to dinner out at the local steakhouse. This is a celebration destination, with a diverse range of upscale restaurants, modern pubs, and charming bakeries. To help you plan that next special occasion, we have a few out-of-the-box suggestions for how to celebrate the good times in Cumberland County:
Take Her Out to Brunch @ Hilltop House
Rated in the “Top 100 Best Restaurants for Brunch in America” by OpenTable, Hilltop’s Sunday brunch is quite simply impressive. The only challenge with dining here would be in trying to sample everything on the buffet spread. From the humblest of Southern fare, such as biscuits and gravy, to rich indulgences, like snow crab legs and prime rib, they offer it all. Do yourself a favor and book your reservation in advance, especially for holidays, as the list fills up quickly.

Top It Off with a Treat @ Frostings Cakeshop
Nothing says a celebration like a perfectly frosted cupcake, and this new bakery, located in Hope Mills’ Millstone Towne Centre, offers a rotating selection of over 100 flavors of the little treats. They also make personalized cakes (order in advance) and sell a wide range of cakes, cookies, coffee, and more onsite. Stop in on Sundays or Tuesdays to take advantage of their cupcake discounts.
One More Suggestion: Burney’s Sweets & More
Gather for Drinks @ ScrubOaks Contemporary American Pub
This Fayetteville favorite prides itself on providing its patrons with not only a sophisticated dining experience, but also a comfortable sports bar. The local crowd flocks to this place for all the major sports games (think March Madness) and holidays (St. Patrick’s Day is a biggie). Their special events have included Wine Walks, a Bourbon & Bacon Celebration, live music, and more. If you are planning a big celebration of your own, consider renting out one of their two private party rooms for the occasion.
One More Suggestion: Latitude 35 Bar & Grill
Cumberland County’s extensive dining options may be found on the Fayetteville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau’s (FACVB) list of Restaurants, as well as on Trip Advisor. If you are planning a trip to this area, the FACVB also provides an up-to-date Calendar of Events, highlighting the many great things to do here year-round.
