South End was home to Charlotte’s first railroad line, connecting us to Columbia and Charleston, SC in the mid-1800’s. “Link & Pin” is an old railroad term. A “Link” was installed on one railcar then, as the two railcars were joined, a “Pin” was manually inserted into the other railcar’s link, holding the two railcars together. Since we are in Historic South End and on a light rail stop, we felt the name Link & Pin was a good fit.

    Absolutely the worst service ever. Took 45 mins to get drinks. Salads came out before drinks. Ordered a bottle of wine and it came out after steaks. Wine glasses dirty. Will never go again. It was not busy and our server never came by. We had to get another waitress to get us silverware. NEVER AGAIN.

    We were a group of 8. The service was slow. The main dishes came out about 2 or 3 at a time. The steak was cooked perfectly. The dining room was 3/4 empty. It was unclear why service was so disappointing.

    Not nearly as wonderful as our first visit, though still quite good. The steak was too salty to eat. The charcuterie tray was excellent as usual. Donuts were a treat we don't usually indulge.

    Unfortunately the experience was not great. The server appeared to be new an uncomfortable. It took 30 minutes to get drinks and around an hour for apps to hit the table. The server didn't know how to open the $120 bottle of wine, brought the wrong apps, and the entrées appeared like they were under the heat lamp for 15+ minutes. The steak came out extra well when ordered medium.

    This was our 2nd time coming to Link & Pin the food was great again. I may have to come back again just for the Lobster Bisque. The service was wonderful and the drinks were strong enough to taste the liquor without being to strong. This turned out to be a Wonderful Valentines Day Dinner. Thank You Link & Pin

    It was me and my girlfriend’s 1 year anniversary & everything was great! Our waiter Kyle was phenomenal & took care of us the entire night. He even made us laugh a couple times, definitely give him a RAISE & we want to request him whenever we return! The food was very delicious, hot & well presented. Thank you guys! It made our night! First experience with Link & Pot but not the last. 5 STARS

    Food was good, service not so much. Went out to eat for birthday occasion, table was pretty wobbly and asked two times with two different servers if we can get something to put underneath the table, felt very ignored afterwards and no one followed up. We asked for the check a bit later, no birthday celebration like most restaurants do which is fine, at the point the table was driving us crazy anyways.

    As usual, I had a wonderful meal! The great service and delicious food has been very consistent. This time I tried the Lobster on Brioche Roll with Truffle Fries…absolutely scrumptious! I started out with the Fried Oysters (a favorite of mine) and for my cocktail the Red Wine Sangria. I was pleased with Everything I had, and will return to Link and Pin to dine again!

    We had a great experience. Our server was polite, knowledgeable, and friendly. He recommended the steaks and stood on that recommendation even when my husband and I thought we wanted to try something else. I am so glad we went with the steaks, they were perfect! Our servers drink recommendation for me was also spot on.

    First off, a nicer restaurant needs to have hostesses who are at the same level as the restaurant, not young people with little experience to save a few bucks. We had a reservation for a certain table type and they tried to seat us on the patio instead, no big deal, but for this price level that shouldn’t happen. Food was great, drinks were good, service was a little off but not bad. Very unique inside…

    Food took forever to be delivered and part of the order was wrong. Kind server but just very, very slow service. Also, when the food was delivered it came out in waves, almost like they realized they forgot an item and scrambled to produce last minute

    Our brunch experiences was very disappointing at this establishment! Our booking was at 11am and although it was not full yet the service was very slow. My cocktail arrived much later than our food with the server telling me three times it is coming. We asked for extra creamer with our coffee but it only arrived after we were done eating and the coffee was already cold. Although we like spice, the avocado toast was so spicy it burned my throat going down. We could not eat it & the bruschetta was not toasted either. The shrimp and grits and candied bacon was good and we loved the ambience but unfortunately not enough to bring us back again. This was our second underwhelming try at Link and Pin. I am not sure if they were understaffed because of it being the day after New Year eve?

    Our server was so patient with my party. We had flat tires and traffic that was holding us up. She got us a few drinks loosen the air and pursued with a wonderful experience. This was some of the best service I’ve had since the pandemic has come. I would recommend this place to anyone. Especially with servers like her.

    We had a great time. Tatiana was an excellent server and resource for drinks and food. The food and drinks were of excellent quality. Prices aren't cheap but nothing is these days. We highly recommend Link & Pin for a date night or casual drinks at the bar. It's a very comfortable atmosphere. We will be back.
