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.

Food was amazing. I had chicken and waffles, hubby had the 3 egg omelette. The chicken tenders were seasoned and fried to perfection. We sat on the patio that can be opened in nice weather and closed when it's cold. Today is was open which helped somewhat to balance out the group 2 tables away that were VERY loud. Outside of me knowing everything going on in the dating lives of the women at that table, it was a great experience and I'd definitely go back.

Beautiful place with good cocktails. Just overpriced for the food you get. My entree salad might as well have been a side salad...

Link & Pin was fantastic! Such a great choice for brunch. The service from Clint was very good. He could have been a little faster clearing plates but he did make it a comfortable experience for me and my friend to eat and talk and enjoy ourselves without constant interruptions. The mimosa bar was AMAZING and the food was great. The only sore spot is that the truffle fries didn’t taste of enough truffle. The pop tarts were also perplexing... the flavor combination of Nutella banana and jalapeño bacon sounds like it MIGHT work and it ALMOST did but it didn’t. Otherwise the meal was great and I can’t wait to visit again!

This is the first time I have been to this location and I have to admit I was impressed! The food was great the drinks were amazing and everyone was super friendly. The one thing that stood out to me in a positive way was the way they are doing social distancing. They did a wonderful job of having the tables separated with a good amount of distance which took a lot of stress off me. They also provided wet wipes for use at the table which was helpful too.

Good food, does have a somewhat similar menu to Cellar at Duckworth's - same owner I believe, so makes sense. But does have differences as well. Good services, not inexpensive, but not ridiculous. I don't see L&P becoming a super frequent stop for us, but here and there, we'll be back.

From the service to the food, it’s a 5 star rating! It was 4 of us and our food was served hot and without complaint! We had the chicken n waffles with bourbon maple syrup and shrimp and grits; two must try’s! The fried oysters, brussel sprouts and candied jalapeño bacon are also must haves! Oh and the drinks, perfecto! Hannah was our waitress and was for sure our cherry on top! WE WILL RETURN!

We had dinner Saturday and the food was very dissapointing. The ambiance and service was wonderful so possibly this was an isolated situation. I started out ordering a glass of the French Sauvignon Blanc. The glass arrived with an odd Amber color and had the aroma of a liqueur such as Amaretto with water added. I returned it an ordered a different type of wine which was fine. My main course was the Lobster Roll. The Lobster was tasty but almost freezer cold. The bun was warm. There might be different styles of serving Lobster Rolls but this wasn't appealing. The french fries were limp and cold. They must have been sitting out for at least 30 minutes from the fryer. The Brussel Sprouts were soggy and salty - didn't match the prior reviews at all. My husband ordered the Angel Hair Paste and we shared the Brussel Sprouts. He thought the Angel Hair was OK. This is such a beautiful venue and the menu has great potential. I hope they figure out their issues in the kitchen.

We celebrated my husband’s 50th birthday with two other couples. We sat outside on the patio which was comfortable but not particularly impressive. We did enjoy the wide variety of food options and I especially appreciated the number of healthy options. I had a great salad with some rich start greens and added shrimp. That allowed room for the table to split three desserts. All of the desserts were phenomenal.

Great location, great ambiance, and great service. The apps were very flavorful. For mains, we got the Tagliatelle with salmon and the bibimbop with pork. The meats were over cooked and dry and just generally not very flavorful. Probably on us for ordering pasta and Korean at a place that specializes in steak and seafood. But would go back again because it’s a cool spot!
