We are 20-year regulars so we have “perspective”. We were delighted to be attended to by Linda, who is an Elliott’s original and beloved. She is a consummate pro. On to the food. Grilled local peach starter. Wow. The mixed seafood pasta in a creamy sauce. A burger to die for topped with bacon and more. On a beautiful bun. Seasoned fries.

Had a fabulous dinner here while on a day trip to Pinehurst. The highlights were the mac and cheese and the cheddar/chive biscuits, but we loved all of it -- the filet, the halibut, the tuna starter, a delicious Manhattan, and the sticky toffee dessert. The servers are well trained and know a lot about the menu. We ate outside and enjoyed a beautiful summer night in North Carolina. This is the kind of restaurant that you can tell truly cares about making fabulous food and takes pride in its food, staff, and facilities. There are nice touches like upscale hand wash and lotion in the bathroom -- things that restaurants don't have to do, but it's so nice when they do. The bar part of the restaurant, the Roost, looks like a great place to grab a drink or two and some light bites.

I will definitely return when I'm in the area.

This is a special place for my wife and I. We regularly do anniversaries there. First time having the seafood carbonara. It was not over powered by the volume of the seafood but the variety was perfect. The sauce was unbelievably creamy and so rich. Definitely will have it again. In. COVID world, they do a great job distancing even taking your temperature with a touch free kiosk at the door. They did a great job with pre-cautions without ruining the ambiance.

We enjoyed our Salmon dinner as usual, but our guest who ordered the steak with the chimichuri was not pleased. It was so spicy that he couldn’t eat it.
The manager comped his bill 20% so that helped. The waitress mixed up the drinks on the tickets but we didn’t want to cause any more trouble.

Hi, I am so sorry to hear of your dissatisfaction with your guests' steak and with the confusion with your check. I am glad that you enjoyed our signature Salmon dish though.

Elliott’s on Linden was fantastic!

To start, their COVID-19 precautions were good. Our temperatures were taken upon entry and the spacing of tables was significant. We were seated in a room by ourselves, other tables in the room just unoccupied.

The staff was so friendly and made us feel very well taken care of. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and specials. We met the chef as well who also was extremely hospitable. The food was delicious, I cannot day enough! I would highly recommend Elliott’s on Linden.

Was seated in the busiest, noisiest area! We were the first table of the night and were refused a requested move to the quiet, windowed area! Only pleasant element of the evening was our waitress. Will not return and will not recommend to anyone else......

Responded on July 14, 2020

I am sorry that we were unable to accommodate your request to move you to another table, we always want our guests to be comfortable. However, on our busier nights, the tables in the windows are almost always requested when the reservation is made and most likely that is what happened Friday. I am glad you were well taken care of. We would love to have you back, if given the chance. If you would like you can call me directly - Cara Edwards, 910.215.0775 as we would like to make it up to you!

Smoked salmon appetizer was my favorite part of the food. Ha, waitress Rose asked me if I wanted to match the food with my wine (because I didn't have a great appetite) which I hadn't been asked in the US (only France). They happened to have some wine specials which I love in a restaurant! Picked a $20 bottle of Muscadet Serve et Maine from the Loire Valley and had the seafood pasta! Rose was training a new server which was interesting (to hear her side of the process). Overall, great experience. Thanks!

We have been to Elliots many times, however, we will most likely not be back. The food is excellent, however the service, the last several times we have been there has been less than good...and not worth the high price for an evening out. Our reservation was at 6, and although we were not in a hurry..it took us 3 hours to complete our meal. The restaurant was not overly busy...the staff was just exceptionaly slow. The waitress was very pleasant..but every time she came to the table she said" thank you so much for your patience"...admiting that she knew we were waiting too long for each course, and for her. Also, the bus boy was so awkward that he made us uncomfortable. Its a shame. This was our go-to local spot for date night. Not anymore.

Lower scores are precipitated by a "newbie" server, who, if we had not urged her would not have conveyed all of the specials. A bigger miss, is my wife's filet came out at the wrong temperature, and it took almost 15 minutes to receive a replacement, that was then overcooked. As you may imagine, the others in our party had almost completed their entrees, and the dinner took a turn for the worse.

I am terribly sorry for the experience that you had with us this past weekend. We always strive for our guests to receive impeccable service. And yes, we were unseasonably busy so that may be why the steak took too long as well. I would love to speak with you in further detail if you wouldn't mind.

Called to say it was a special occasion. Seated next to kitchen with glare of kitchen on our table -felt like cafeteria. Wait staff acted like she was serving at a high end restaurant and then promptly forgot about us

Thankfully another server and the bartender stepped in when they say how long we were waiting for attention. Ambiance in dining room looked better and although there were tables empty in there, we were placed in the worst table.

Food was very good and interesting. Wine was very good. Would have been much happier if we had both takeout.

Seriously lacking in ambiance. Least favorite dining experience in Pinehurst
