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.

Very friendly service, amazing cocktails, and delicious food! We had the scallops and the filet mignon and the Brussels sprouts. Everything was cooked perfectly. we sat in the bar area by choice and loved the vibe.

We took my mom here for dinner to celebrate her birthday. We were swayed by the great reviews, but our experience was just ok in all honesty. I ordered the branzino (bread pudding for dessert), my mom ordered the sea scallops (nutella budino for dessert) and my husband ordered the lobster roll (nutella budino for dessert). The branzino was good, but the bread pudding was dry. The sea scallops were more like an appetizer than a main dish, so I would recommend you order other things with it or you will be hungry like my poor mom after. The lobster and truffle fries were ok. The nutella budino was good.

I had asked for a candle in my mom's dessert on my opentable reservation, but it doesn't look like they read the notes since we didn't get a candle or anything.

For the prices, I expected more, but you win some you loose some.

If you plan on spending the money for a nice dinner date make sure you sit inside. Outside ambience is good for large groups but small parties won't hear

Our server, Derek, (hopefully, that's the correct spelling) was attentive & very customer focused. The food was bland, which was not expected. Our drinks were pretty good and the worth the time spent.

Food was just ok for the prices..
reccommendations for the chef:
- ceviche needed for flavour (salt/lime/coconut juice)
- I orded the steak medium and it came out black, now I realize it was an intentional char, but I would have appreciate the heads up
- The mushrooms were very bland (needed salt and butter)

overall the ambiance was splendid, but the food did not live up to the chic interiors.

I was blown away by the food, it was delicious. I highly recommend the tuna tacos for an appetizer and the bread pudding for dessert. The service was outstanding as well. This is a perfect to go date night spot.

This place was absolutely phenomenal. We had the Shrimp and Grits (the best we’ve ever had and we visit New Orleans often) and the Corn Flake Crusted French Toast. The atmosphere is pretty great as well. We went for lunch and it wasn’t overly noisy which we appreciate. Link and Pin is definitely a place to visit!

We loved Link & Pin! Beautiful restaurant that has a classic feel- like the lobby of a fancy hotel.
The bar is stunning. We sat in the front room and while it was spacious, it felt cozy for a dinner for two.
The service was excellent.
Do not miss the whole fish. We had the branzino and it was cooked perfectly. Crispy on the outside and succulent and perfect on the inside.
The halibut was also excellent- especially if you like tomatoes and rice. Added a scallop and it was great, too.
Overall, this was a perfect spot. Looking forward to coming back to try the Tomahawk steak.

Delicious!! Came because we had a gift card but would absolutely go again! Had the fried oysters for an appetizer and they were so yummy. I had the angel hair pasta and my husband had the chicken and waffles. Both very good. Cocktail wise I had the cucumber basil drink and thought it was great. My husband had the old fashioned and enjoyed it.

The decor and ambiance is very nice..it wasn’t horrible but I’m in no rush to go back at all. I got the chicken and waffles..but my syrup was ICE COLD!! . I asked to get it heated and they have no microwave. Hannah was nice but she was slow!!!!! No exaggeration. My friend ordered shrimp and grits.. shrimp was undercooked. I really wanted to leave feeling about the food as I did about the ambiance but unfortunately I can’t say that.

I ordered the corn flake coated French toast, I was NOT pleased. It was very dry and flavorless. My glass had lipstick on it and when the waitress was told she simply brought out another drink without any type of apology.
