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.

Menu was not the same as on line. floors were very slippery & dangerous. Service was slow and food was not very good. for what i spent I expected more, no wonder it was empty at lunchtime.

I have mixed reviews for this restaurant..

Good points:
Great ambience and friendly staff
Manager also checked on us couple of times
Waffle and chicken, tuna poke, impossible burger was delicious and yum
Bread pudding was also good..

Not good:
Hummus trio - did not have salt at all for any of the 3 hummus that was served
Steak - requested for medium rare but it was served rare. It was salty too.
Felt it was too overpriced .

This was one of the top 5 meals I’ve had in Charlotte in the 22 years I’ve been here. Menu is creative, every bite that came out was better than the last. There were 5 of us at dinner and we were all equally blown away, the service was outstanding (shout out to Chris!) and the hostesses were so accommodating when I called to amend the reservation. New fave for sure!

Link & Pin serves well-prepared, high-quality food. We enjoyed it before the plague & were very happy to find it in good form recently. We ordered the ceviche, which was clean & refreshing, and followed it with a fried whole fish, which was perfectly done: tender, crisp & flavorful. The veggies that came with it were exactly right. Our daughter went a few days later & had a similar experience. Check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

The actual menu prices were higher than open table $50 and up for steaks was very expensive. Also my scallops entree had only 3 scallops.

Only have good things to say about my first outing here. I was on a first date for Brunch. The Deviled Eggs were amazing. The avocado toast was good (though is not avacado toast as much as bread with avacado and Lots of sprouts on it) and the chicken and waffles were delicious. The ambience is great. They called it gastro pub 🤷🏻‍♂️ works for me. We ended up there nearly four hours (without realizing it) and our waitress was great the whole time. We got the bread pudding as a dessert and it was delectable! Highly recommend.

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.
