    We were unhappy that they were out of a lot of the “daily specials”. Including certain drinks. They said the beverage orders run out Sunday nights so not a good time to go. Lightning was so low we couldn’t read the menu and sat right in front of the kitchen and had to listen to dishwasher cling dishes the whole meal. Food was ok chicken was great shrimp wasn’t really blackened and risotto was bland. Presentation was nice. Waitress was nice and polite. But definitely not worth the $300 bill.

    They have the best chef in town. The fried chicken dish in a mushroom sauce was fabulous. My shrimp and grits were so good, it really didn’t need the shrimp. Best I have ever had.

    Once again, PinPoint doesn’t disappoint. The t-bone was one of the best steaks we’ve ever had. The lobster risotto was divine. The service was excellent and the pimento cheese is nothing short of a southern treat. We will continue to return as it’s proven to be a spot that is hard to beat in ILM.

    Ordered a Lion mane steak “ Thought it was meat because it was labeled steak It was vegetarian and I was very disappointed- Needs to be labeled better or described better- As a vegetarian meal- It was not at all what I expected- Mediocre at best and way too salty- Service and drinks were good but food was a disappointment

    We were a party of 3 celebrating a birthday. Our table was reserved by a window. The waiter was very professional and came over with 3 champagne flutes with pink sparkling wine. He made very good recommendations for our dinners,as it was our first time eating there. The food was fabulous. I would recommend it to anyone, especially if they're celebrating a special event.

    This was my 4th time dining here and every single time- service is great and the food is always on POINT! Mondays is half price oysters and half price wine- you can’t find a better deal anywhere. My husband and daughter got the steak and they loved it. I opted for the oysters and they were delicious.

    Food was good not great, the waiter was very friendly but inconsistent with follow up that resulted in long periods of waiting. Felt like the tables would be larger to use the available space better. Overall I did have a good experience and would recommend it but there were the above areas that could be improved on.

    Still a wonderful experience. Called and left a message same day requesting a change from party of 3 to party of 5. PinPoint called back that same afternoon and accommodated the change in party size. Service is always pleasant. Great local oysters, the hamachi crudo was delicious, as was the pork belly. Fried chicken in corn flour (gluten free as a result!) gave my wife and daughter their first real fried chicken in quite some time. The shrimp and grits were creamy and perfectly cooked. The berkshire pork chop was a nice alternative. Great selection of wine and when they didn't have a second bottle of the Chardonnay were prepared with an alternative selection that was excellent.

    Have been to PinPoint a hand full of times and truly have been blown away each and every time I’ve returned. The service, the atmosphere and the food are incredible. The bartender provided amazing cocktails for the “roll the dice” option and were amazed how delicious they were. The food is always incredible, the flavors are unique and blend magically together. Highly, highly recommend PinPoint for any occasion.

    Pinpoint offered one of the best meals I have ever had dining out, and I am an award-winning, vegetarian cookbook, author! As vegan gf diners, we rarely find a restaurant that is both satisfying and delicious. Instead, we often walk out hungry and disappointed. I love that we could find delicious vegan protein in black-eyed peas and fresh pea hummus, which was exquisite. All the roasted vegetables were delicately seasoned and very flavorful. and the side portions were so generous that we could hardly finish each dish. We are going back for more tonight since it is so hard for us to find such extraordinary vegan gf offerings! Our waiter was also excellent helping us understand the options that would work best for us.

    Had dinner on half price Monday - half price oysters and wine. The oysters were delicious and the Brunello needed a bit more time to breathe but overall just fine. The duck was very good. The fish dish was overly salted. Generally, we noticed PinPoint can over salt entrees esp. the fish dishes. Will remember for next time and just ask them to adjust.
