Influenced by our beautiful surroundings and rich agricultural history, we provide our community with a guest-driven, chef-inspired dining experience, steeped in southern hospitality.


The Pinery was established and built to function as a touchstone of hospitality in our thriving community. Our goal each day is to ensure guests feel welcomed and well-fed; employees feel valued and inspired, and our city feels enriched and connected- to each other and to the past.

Meet Our Founder

Carol Sizer Holladay

After 26 years in hospitality, Carol Sizer Holladay recently fulfilled her lifelong dream of owning and running her own restaurant when she opened The Pinery on Lake Ivanhoe in Orlando, Florida.

Creating unforgettable guest experiences, delivering menus that are adventurous while still being approachable, and building a respected and rewarded team, encompass the fundamental tenants of her approach to the industry.

With wide-ranging restaurant experience across the south – from Boone, NC to Charleston, SC to New Orleans, LA – she is thrilled to be back in her native city of Orlando as she embarks on her new venture.
