Overall Link & Pin is an enjoyable restaurant. My wife and I went for date night. 1. We made reservations beforehand and we were seated immediately. Service was excellent. 2. There is a large inside dining area but it felt a little bland or dry to me. It wasn't inviting. 3. They have a large outdoor seating area (where we were seated). It's bright with plenty of sunshades and windows that can be opened or closed depending on the weather. 4. If there is a large party, it can get really loud outdoors. 5. We enjoyed our food. We had the lobster roll and truffle fries, street corn, and also the chicken and waffles. Everything was what you would expect from a restaurant in this price range. We didn't really enjoy the street corn. It was seasoned well but just a bit overcooked. 6. It's worth a visit if you are looking for a new place to try. We will definitely return to try the steaks.
We had a great time as a party of 6. We came here for Sunday brunch and enjoyed ourselves. We walked in and immediately was taken to our table (we had previously secured a reservation online) outside on their covered patio. With Covid still lingering, we were happy to be on the patio. Although there was no heat on, the temperature outside did not call for it and we were extremely comfortable. I ordered the burger today. I kind of was in the mood for fries so that is why I chose it. The burger automatically comes medium unless you want it mid-well or well. I like my burgers medium so that is how it was served. I ordered the Rum Tum Tum. I am actually not really sure about the name. I did send it back because the ginger was just too overpowering. Instead I got a red sangria. Last time I went to Link and Pin, I ordered the chicken and waffles. Now that was great and I definitely left full. I would come back here again. You will find something good to eat on the menu and they do not skimp on the alcohol when making your drinks.
Very impressive restaurant in South End! I was expecting more casual fare, but this is a great facility for gatherings, parties or a nicer dinner date. Some entrees are quite pricey and others higher than normal but the decor and location set it apart. Very attentive staff, good service and excellent food!
Well go back. Clean and well designed interior. The service staff, while very pleasant and knowledgeable of the menu, has a few opportunities: check backs, remembering orders and refills as well as clearing dishes in a timely fashion. Fried flounder was acceptable, but not very tasty. Appetizers were excellent. Ribeye steak was good, cooked to right temperature and plated well. Just a little tough and lacking in seasoning. Lobster roll was excellent. Dessert, a slice of chocolate cake was good, but on the dry side. Waitress made a few mental errors, including not bringing a second glass of wine for one guest who ordered. Settling the check was handled quickly and discretely. Well located operation, and staffed with very personable employees.
Link and pin is one of mg favorite places to go to at southend. Their cocktails are the best! I visited a few times for dinner, love their pasta on the dinner menu. Its my first time to try their brunch, the avocado toast tasted pretty good. Shrimp and grits was a little salty. Their cold brew is good too!
