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.

The meal was fine most likely will not be back. Everything we had was overly greasy. The server was a bit over talkative to the point we couldn’t carry on a full conversation among our friends. If you go do not sit in the “outdoor” area when the doors are closed as the sound from other tables just echos. The table near us was one of the loudest most obnoxious tables I have ever heard in my life. The girls shill voice had nowhere to go. The only thing I could not hear was her name, but I now know this girls work schedule and living arrangements. Also, the Epoisses de Bourgogne was not a great cheese. I am normally good with funky cheese but that was not good at all.

New spot for us and glad I found it. Zac was a great server was informative, knowledgeable, timely without a right balance of service. He let us enjoy our meal in phases but always checked in when we needed something. A very good dining experience of which we will surely come back for. BYW the vodka martinis and the food were perfect. Glad we found Link and Pin, well done.

Link and pin has a great ambience! The service was good but felt a little rushed- other than that everything that came out was really good!! We got the burger, fried cauliflower and chicken tenders and were pleased. The drinks were good too. Overall would recommend for a nicer outing in Southend!

The food was excellent as was our service. The only complaint is that we got slapped with a huge parking ticket for parking int the empty deck beside the restaurant. I wish someone had warned us.

The service was amazing. Daiquan was quick on his feet, polite, and had the best menu recommendations. The ambiance was nice and calming, the music was at a nice sound level. The lobster roll's presentation was just beautiful and the taste, very lovely. Very nice dinning experience.

Have been multiple times and this was the worst experience. Made a reservation and was sat at a high top near the bar. Not what I would consider reservation seating. Steak was incorrect 2 times and by the time I received my steak my sides I ordered were cold and my significant other was done with meal. Used to love going to this restaurant for their steak but will now find someplace else to go.

We had a fantastic evening sitting on the patio and enjoyed the company of other patio guests, one whom happened to be celebrating his 21st!

The food was outstanding!

Our servers (Alyssa & Sarah?) we’re phenomenal and helped us to surprise Birthday Boy with a slice of cake.

The food was so mediocre. We order a ton of items and nothing stood out, none of them were amazing. It was disappointing. We ordered a charcuterie board with 7 selections, they only gave us 6 and we had to point it out to them. Just very mediocre food all around. I would not recommend.

2 strips of bacon for an individual order is 1 too little. There are no gluten free options. This is a shame, as they would provide addit. profit oppty w/very little effort. I trained FS personel for years. Also ran my own catering business. I would suggest some other upgrades,
Salad was nice. No one else complained about their food.
Very noisy with the door open.

I have frequented Link and Pin for brunch often but this was the first time for dinner. Unfortunately, I was underwhelmed. I ordered the cauliflower appetizer and it was a bowl full of rice and maybe 4-5 cauliflower florets max. I ordered the lobster roll which was essentially lobster meat stuffed into a bun with a little mayo spread on the bottom. ....not your typical lobster roll. Overpriced steak entrees that come with nothing but a small side salad and no options for people who don't eat red meat or seafood. Silver lining, the fries were tasty.

i came in for dinner for my boyfriends birthday and sat inside. we had a reservation through open table and were promptly sat. the host was very nice.
he had ordered the flounder, and i had ordered the chicken and waffles. the chicken and waffles were good, but the flounder not so much. every bite had pieces of bone in the fish, and was not enjoyable. ive worked at a fine dining seafood restaurant so i understand what is reasonable to expect as far as bones in fish. i mentioned this to the waiter and he simply said that’s how it is and left the table.
on top of being displeased with an entree, the host mentioned bread pudding and nutella something as birthday desserts. i asked the server for the bread pudding birthday dessert and was charged for it. when i mentioned this to the server he said the nutella one was the only birthday dessert. this may have been a simple miscommunication but it was another uncomfortable situation. he ultimately took it off the bill.
rather than leaving a review, i sent this in to management but heard nothing back, so i suggest going to any of the other awesome restaurants charlotte has to offer.

My problem with the restaurant was the lack of sunshades on the large windows. The sun was in my eyes for most of my time in the restaurant. Most upsetting was when I found out it was a known problem by management but no one seemed to care.
