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.

I rated Link & Pin with the perspective of a family going out to eat with 3 teenagers. The menu has something that works well for teens (chicken & waffles, burgers, etc.) and parents (filet, lobster roll, pasta dishes, nice appetizers) etc. The waitress was incredible. We've been to the Charlotte and Huntersville location and I think Huntersville is better although sitting outside in Charlotte is nice as well. Our food was cooked exactly to order. When we were in Charlotte our food was overdone. May have been a one time issue but if I had to choose the overall food experience was better in Huntersville. Overall my family would come here again.

This restaurant is average at best. The bread on the cheese board was over cooked. They were only able to cook two desserts at one time and this is an issue if everyone at the table orders the same item. Service was good but the space is very loud.

This Huntersville addition to the initial Link and Pin was a big disappointment. From the cocktails ( which we sent back) to the food to the ambience, this location is sorely lacking. Raise it to the ground and start over! We both had stomachaches...

Went for Saturday brunch, my husband got the burger- wow. I stole a bite, it was juicy and the meat tasted so good, and the bacon was to die for!
I had the Juevos Rancheros, also very good! And I know this sounds weird, but you have to try the homemade poptart. Pastry, nutella, banana, and bacon, then grilled. Yes. Bacon! It was delicious! The wait staff and manager were all friendly and very helpful. Will definitely go back!

Not impressed with the customer service when ordering. I ordered a burger with no bun and no fries due to my diet. I asked for a substitute and was told it would be a $6 upcharge for a side. I felt I was nickled and dimed instead of understanding why I asked for a substitute. Was it really that much of a cost difference? The waitress even left the table to confirm with the manager. My meal was brought with a bun, on a metal tray on paper. I pushed the bun aside, I was cutting my meal on paper which was tearing and not sure if I ate any of it. Why would my meal not be on a plate? I am in a restaurant that required reservations, cloth napkins and table cloths. Expensive prices for a good meal, and I get my meal on paper on a warped metal tray. I could have paid half the price and went to chilis and had the same meal. My wife did enjoy her meal, but the funny thing is she ordered desert and coffee. She got a plate with her coffee, a separate plate with just a spoon and napkin, and a plate under the bowl for her desert. I know you have enough plates. Presentation is everything when it comes to fine dining.

Restaurant is beautiful and waiter was excellent. They do need to work on the food for the money you are paying. I got the shrimp and grits which had too much hot sauce in it, otherwise is was pretty good. Two others in my party had the chicken and waffles which was nothing to write home about. It came with watermelon and it obviously tasted out of season and wasn’t ripe. The food was average but there was an intense argument going on the the kitchen and that really got our attention (and the whole dining area). Later the police showed up and we decided to exit. Your first impression should be your best impression so we were not impressed to say the least!

Overall, we had a lovely evening. Our server, Grace, was attentive and very knowledgeable about the menu and made wonderful suggestions. We will definitely be back, but hope that they turn the music down the next time. It was way too loud for a date night and we had to keep repeating ourselves to be heard. The decor was nice but a bit too reminiscent of the previous restaurant. The food was good-we had the mini tuna tacos and the halibut. We’d like to try the brunch next time.

The food was excellent and our waitress was very helpful and attentive. It was our first time at Link & Pin, so she answered our many questions about the food and drinks, even making recommendations. My husband’s filet was seasoned and cooked to perfection. My scallops were yummy, but only 3 on the plate, so not a generous serving. We’ll definitely come back.

Absolutely fantastic service and food! I've visited several times since they opened, and have never been disappointed with anything. For brunch - try the bloody mary, and the house burger. For dinner - try the Ahi tuna poke bowl, crispy oysters, Pittsburgh style steak with parmesan truffle fries and the nutella budino.

All three of us had the lobster roll, it was good with a lot of meat but it was not warm. I had eaten a lobster roll at the Link & Pin Charlotte location which was warm lobster meat with warm butter...the bread seamed different as well. One of my guests had a lobster roll the day before at RH Restaurant and said it was also warm but had less meat.

I wanted to LOVE it but was sadly underwhelmed.

Expensive for the quality.

140 for 3 glasses of wine, two starters and two shareables. There are better restaurants to spend that kind of money on.

Hopefully its just growing pains.

Had a pretty good meal at Link and Pin. We were there for a birthday dinner and the steak was EXCELLENT. However, the ambience was not that great. We were seated on the right side of the building and the seats were very uncomfortable, lumpy with springs coming thru the seats and it just wasn't that nice. The service was mediocre. For the money I think it was a bit over priced. Our meal was over $200 for 3 people. With not great service, uncomfortable seating, not sure if we'll be back. You can get great steaks just about anywhere.

Enjoy the food. Booths are somewhat uncomfortable...a bit lumpy.
Servers are very nice, some still learning.
Was served flat Prosecco 3 times—different days. Happily got me a new glass. Should recognize flat bubbly.
Otherwise, we are glad we gave it a second chance and have met friends there on 3 occasions now. We’ll be back!👍
