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.

    Overall this place was great. The ambiance was perfect for date night. It wasn't too busy, just right and the food and drinks were great. The only minor issue was that their salads were a bit limited as they came premixed it seems as it would have been nice to get a clean green/house salad that you could top up with a meat if preferred. Our server Shai(sp) was awesome. Great energy and knew her stuff. Made great suggestions as well. Definitely a great place.

    The food just wasn’t very good…. Undercooked steaks… undercooked fries. Very disappointing. Our server, Daquan ( not sure how to spell his name) was fabulous… consistently great service from him. We didn’t tell him about the rareness of the food even though he asked, because we just wanted to have a nice night with our son who was visiting from Atlanta.

    We were excited about Link and Pin. We had a reservation at 8:15 but did not get our food until 9:45. Although the food was delicious, it was a long wait for food. We thoroughly enjoyed the taste of the steak!

    Service was terrible. Server was gone most of the time and we waited an hour for food. Had to ask for a Diet Coke three times and finally got up and asked hostess. Fish (3 separate ordered) was dry and over cooked. No one felt their food was great. But passable. When we finally did get our food then the sever rushed us through and gathered plates quickly then disappeared again. I got up and asked hostess to pay bill. Overall, go somewhere else for sure! Ambience was nice and cocktails were decent.

    I’ve been to the location in the Arboretum before and loved it so when my friend wanted to get together for dinner and drinks I suggested we check out the South End location. The ambiance was lovely, the service was great, the food was delicious and the drinks were strong! This is quickly becoming one of my go to places for memorable dining experiences. (Please try to duck pastrami on the charcuterie board. It’s amazing!)

    We were excited to try Link and Pin since we love Cellar at Duckworth. They are completely different and Link and Pin not even close to being in the same league as Cellar. Everything was truly mediocre at Link and Pin. I do not recommend it and we will not return.

    We were there for a dinner date, had reservations and were seated in the outdoor seating section that was made of glass. The ambiance was nice, but it was soooo loud we couldn’t even hear our server. After inquiring if we could move to a table inside, the experience was completely different and we will be back. If you’re on a date or prefer an intimate setting, request indoor dining, but if you have a large group of friends and are ready to party, definitely sit outside. Food was 10/10 and staff was so great and accommodating. The only request would be to provide an ice bucket when someone orders champagne for the table.

    Food and service were amazing for this special experience weekday brunch after the holidays. The only issue we had was our first mimosa was flat (they use tap prosecco and weirdly it tends to come out flat a lot of places) but we remedied by just buying a bottle (actually more cost effective for us anyway!). It was a great brunch! Shelby was a friendly and helpful server, quick and always there when we needed her! Food and drinks came out quickly, and the food was delicious!

    Our waitress took about 25 minutes to bring our bottle for our mimosas. When it came we had to ask for an ice bucket. She brought us warm Prosecco. Our food was not hot. It was was, but food. My steak was saltier than my tastebuds could handle but cooked well. We spent 6 hours there laughing and catching up, not loud or foul language. They say a couple near us who sent a waitress to ask us to keep it at a whisper. There was 20 people in the establishment at this time. We hadn’t seen each other in months. But we are the type of women to enjoy ourselves no matter the circumstances.

    I had a reservation for 1, arrived a little earlier at 12:50 ish … my friend and I didn’t get our food until almost 2 pm. It took forever for her sons fries to come out and we asked for it to be an app to keep him occupied and it came out almost around the time the food came out. We watched as others around us got their food before us and quite frankly it upset us. I work in the food industry and with the meals we had there’s no way it should take 45+ mins to cook it. The server apologized and he was nice but I think more should have done as well as a manager coming to speak to us. Not once did we see a manager present.

    Maybe they had a rough evening, but this was one of the most uncomfortable, unpleasant experiences I’ve had in a long time at a restaurant. Took a long time for any server to speak to us after being seated, a very long time to even get a glass of wine, order was incorrect s a few times with random things being given instead of what was ordered, and the food wasn’t very good. Most likely will not give it another chance.
