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.

Everything was perfect until we got ready to leave. Yes they validate parking but if you’re not in and out within two hours then you are up the creek without a paddle I guess that is a way to keep tables available but for a weekend evening dinner 2 hours is cutting it really close!

I’m a foodie and always looking for a great place to eat. Since my Best friend was coming in from South Carolina I chose the restaurant based on the menu and foods she enjoys. I have never been to Link and pPn but the menu looked so inviting I decided to give it a chance. Let me tell you…Link and Pin did not disappoint! Everything we ordered was so delicious and tasty! The Host and Chef were so accommodating! We had excellent service and the atmosphere was just splendid!
We ordered the Crunchy Oysters, salmon w/ avocado mashed potatoes, garlic truffle fries, sautéed mushrooms, and the arugula salad w/ berries . When I tell you Everything was Superb… know that it was!
We will definitely return! Oh and the drinks! Try the Moscow Mule and the Manhattan (w/ Makers Mark). You will definitely be pleased!

We dine out roughly twice a week. Link and Pin is becoming my favorite spot. Their kitchen is so consistent. I got several appetizers and my husband got the whole fish. It was scrumptious.The ceviche was so clean and fresh. The ahi tuna tacos gave me a food gasm, and those brussel sprouts were sheer perfection. I only wish my server had informed me that parking deck validation is void 2 hours from the time stamp. Oh well. We'll know for next time. I'll take this place over Steak48, 131 Main, Capital Grille or any of those super high end dining establishments.

I went two weekends in a row it was so good and the waiters were very knowledgeable about the menu!

They would have received five stars, but the hostesses need a little more training. Both times I made reservations and both times after telling them my name and reservation time, I stood waiting until I asked how long will it be before I was seated.

The food was great. The service was great, the environment was great. It was mostly clean, the only thing I can say bad about it was that at my booth, the window ledge was kinda cruddy. There were some food particles and dust that hadn't been cleaned in a while. This was minor and didn't really take away from the overall experience. Id give them an overall A-

We were craving a nice brunch and some mimosas. Link and Pin delivered! Mom and my husband had the chicken and waffles, and I had the avocado toast and some grits on the side. Everything was delicious and the staff is great!

Parking can be interesting, don’t forget your ticket in the car. LOL!! Brunch is a bit pricey, but good for a special treat!

The atmosphere were a bit busy although it wasn’t crowded. The food was good. Filet was a bit over cooked but tasty. Didn’t understand being carded at age 59/66. Kinda overkill. Will go back again to see if we can achieve a different pace and experience.

Food, drinks and the service were excellent. Great food selection, tasteful and light. Chicken & waffles and shrimp & grits were great! The drinks are excellent! Restrooms are clean. The wait staff had charming personalities, eager to assist you and very knowledgeable of the food and drink menu. Also, the restaurant validated parking for two hours.

The place was nice but the brunch menu was subpar. The food was average at best. We tried ordering their homemade poptarts which seemed like a unique option, but then was told they don't have the ingredients because it's being removed from the menu. I hope they are revamping the menu entirely and if they do, I'll give them another chance.

First time here. Excellent and variety of offerings to dine “Tapas” style or more traditional “3- or 4-,course” meal nicely prepared and reasonably priced. We did a Tapas meal with dessert and bottle of wine - Ceviche, Marinated Chicken Skewers, Arugula salad with shrimp, Charred Brussel Sprouts and Tagliatelle with mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes. Dessert was a Budin - chocolate mousse with raspberry preserve and fresh made whipped cream.

All items were delicious and service with Christian was excellent.

Will return and try their Seafood entrees or what are the house favorite Steak options.

I absolutely enjoyed spending my Mother’s Day at Link & Pin. The atmosphere was great, the food was amazing, and hospitality was top-notch. I would totally recommend this place. I must add, the drinks from the bar were pretty stiff and tasty, no skimping on the alcohol.

Mother’s Day dinner for this year. The food is outstanding and the cocktail menu is fantastic. Restaurant was full but still fairly quiet which was really nice. Service was attentive, very good. Link & Pin is definitely a bright spot to the explosion of restaurants on the scene now in SouthEnd. We will definitely be back.
