Had a delicious Tomahawk Rib Eye (shared with my husband) and one of the best salads I have ever had at a restaurant (Arugula, goat cheese etc). The service could not be better. We were disappointed with the selection of wine/price and size of the tiny martinis but we thought the same thing our first visit and we still will return.

Met up with a friend to catch up and celebrate some big events that have happened in both our lives. We had a 5:30 reservation which was perfect! Our server, Jill, had the perfect balance of checking on us yet giving us space. The food was delicious and I highly recommend the homemade pop tarts!! There was zero pressure for us to leave so they could give the table to others...we were there 3 hours. Go check this place out! It’s fantastic!

Service & food was excellent. A little pricey to not include complimentary bread or side dish. Our seating was not that great. If we sat across from each other, one of us would be looking at a blank wall. Since the restaurant was not crowded an effort could have been made to give us a better table. Maybe we should have asked for a different table. Also, the cushion seat was sunken. At least our entrees were very good & our waitress was excellent.

Decent date night. Food was okay, had the ceviche which was nice, filet mignon and the lobster roll. Our server Grace was incredible and made the meal. Atmosphere was good, but the noise bounces off the walls a bit and can get loud. The decor and wall artwork was fantastic. Would recommend a night there to make your own conclusion!

This was my first time dining at Link and Pin since it changed from Micky and Mooch. The place was cleaned up quite a bit and has a brighter more modern appeal. I had a south end whiskey cocktail which was excellent. The size of the fried oysters small plate were rather large for my taste. But the light fried breading on them was tasty. A tarter like sauce would have been welcomed. The Brussel sprouts were excellent. I order the Halibut. The cut and cook was excellent. However the portion size was small and it was served over a very heafty serving of rice with a spicy tomato based sauce. I loved the rice and sauce- but more Halibut would have been even better. My girlfriend ordered the scallops. They were among the best scallops I have had in this area. They have no fishiness to them that are even commonly served in Charlottes higher priced fine dining restaurants. They were moderately large in size, cooked perfectly. They were served with a light honey based sauce. The fennel it came with was out of place and not tasty. Service was professional. The Manager stopped by to confirm everything was excellent. The wine list had bottles ranging from everyday drinking to special occasion. Gone are the bad noisy bands that would play to drunk dancing old people Friday and Saturday nights when it was micky and mooch. Phew. I wished the ceiling was softened up with something other than tin tiles to soften things up further. I’m looking forward to going back for a meal of well executed solid restaurant favorites with a modern twist in a nice setting with great cocktails and wine.

We loved the atmosphere, very cool vibe, and the menu has a slightly different spin on many favorite apps and main items, that were fantastic. We can't wait to go back.

A fun date night for the wife and I. Had reservations for later in the evening but arrived early. Sat outside and were setup with heaters nearby. Cocktails were phenomenal and the entrees (lobster roll & pasta) were fantastic. Dessert paired well with the wine! Best part was the staff: waitress Carina was energetic, engaged, and provided great suggestions. We will return!

This is our second visit to the Huntersville location of Link however, this visit more than made up for the previous shortcomings. We had a fantastic experience, wonderful food, and fantastic service. We look forward to our next visit (and many more after that).

I had the Ceviche and the Burger, both were fantastic! The ceviche was a little spendy, the burger value was right on point. I did upgrade to the truffle fries which were delicious, but a $1 upcharge would be much more in line than the $3 for a little oil and garlic. My wife got the scallops. While she said they were ok, they weren't really flavorful. $25 for a scallops entre isn't really out of the norm, just expected more flavor. Overall, we'll be back.

Have to take back some of earlier review. Scallops were 24 which is reasonable as was the lobster roll (at 29). Still not cheap eats. Truffle garlic fries still not quite what M&M fries were from the truffle standpoint.

Very nice spot in Huntersville. Has a charming interior and friendly staff that are not intrusive. Beef entrees are a bit pricy but the rest of the menu is reasonable. Several tasty appetizers and nice wine list. Would enjoy going back.

The noise level is problematic. It’s impossible to enjoy when the wait staff has to shout so you can hear them. Table talk is difficult with all the surrounding noise. It was a problem when it was Mickey and Mooch....I was hopeful new ownership would address it. Unfortunately, not.
The food was okay. $29 Lobster roll was simply a bun with 1 lobster claw and 1 large chunk of meat. Traditional lobster roll has chunks of lobster meat mixed with Mayo, lemon juice and celery on a toasted roll. Fries were undercooked and soggy. My date had chicken and waffles. Again, just okay. Waffles were cold as was the bourbon syrup. Not a place I can recommend or will return given the noise level and food quality.
