About Elliott's on Linden
When philosophy and action proceed hand-in-hand, something extraordinary happens: a guiding principle is formed.
For Chef/Owner Mark Elliott, that principle is to serve the best and freshest locally produced agrarian products to his guests. It's a principle that was formed in Mark's childhood, and as a young apprentice chef in Southeastern England. Mark would further develop a deep connection to the green grocer, the baker, the fish monger, the butcher, the cheesemaker. Daily sourcing for the kitchens provisions was a way of life.
From this restaurant's first days, Chef Elliott has forged relationships with regional farmers to obtain their produce, livestock and artisan products when they are at the peak of freshness.
Today, Chef Elliott continues to serve guests cuisine crafted from the fresh ingredients that the area's farmers have to offer. It's a principle we live with every plate we serve.

Elliott's on Linden Ratings and Reviews
Farm to table! Fresh everything! Had scallops and halibut tacos for starters! Both were terrific! Then had specialty burger and a glazed salmon cooked on wood plank! Ordered too much for two but they were tremendous! And desserts looks amazing but had no room! Must try this place!
We heard the food at Elliott's was good but didn't realize how good. Wow! Some of the best food I've had recently and creative without being pretentious. Love this place. I had the salmon special and my husband had the duck. We shared a scallop appetizer. Portions are reasonable and the wine list is notable. Linda, our server, knew her wines and made excellent wines by the glass recommendations.
I've been to Elliott's on Linden half a dozen times, perhaps more. It's has always been a solid A- and sometimes more eclectic that others. My last visit, however, was most certainly an A+. Appetizer, salad and entry (in my case Elk) were outstanding. Service was very good, and the server recommend an excellent glass of red wine to accompany my Elk. Elliott's is the most pricey dining venue in the Sandhills area but arguably worth it.
Creative menu; great service; careful preparation; perfect cup of coffee at the end of the meal. Linda was our server, and she was perfect in every way - attentive, easy to work with on special requests. We share a delicious pickled trout salad with root vegetables. Also shared calamari perfectly battered and fried. One main was the signature salmon, the other was sauerbraten. Could not manage dessert, but Linda brewed extra-strong coffee, per our request. Elliott's never disappoints us.
Have been a loyal customer until tonight. Steak. was over cooked. Service was unacceptable. We were brought our salad at the same time as our entree, and we were served the wrong dessert. The meal took almost 3 hours! Ridiculous. For such a high end meal as Elliot's, I expected better.
As locals who travel worldwide, Elliots was previously one of our favorites! The staff was well trained and attentive, the bartender was knowledgeable and the food was out of this world. That has changed as of present. Our server was very inattentive, almost inconvenienced that we had chosen to patronize Elliots that evening. The appetizer took 30 minutes to arrive (as well as our beverages). The food was served cold and we were always sitting, looking at our watches in hopes that one of the many, many staff that passed our table would kindly offer to simply refill a beverage, bring us flatware or serve food in a reasonable amount of time. We are open to returning to Elliots again, but the management needs to step in a re-evaluate the service and quality of the product.
The food was good, but the service was not. We were seated around 7pm and didn't receive our food until around 8:15-8:30. The restaurant didn't seem very busy, but it must have been too much for the kitchen to handle. We had to order espresso before our meal came just to stay motivated to eat!
Went with large family. Service was gracious and very informative. Food & wine selections were unique. Local cheeses and veggies were fresh & delicious. Grandparents loved chicken/waffle. Pork schnitzel was especially popular at our table. NY Strip was also a really nice cut and prepared to perfection. Highly recommend!
Obviously it was a bad night. Service attention was very slow and the meal was lacking the usual quality. Also, hard to get excited when the wait staff is unable to list the ingredients of a cheese plate as well as the specials unless you press the issue. Anniversary dinner where my wife said we should have gone somewhere else. Too bad. Most likely won't be back.
Anniversary dinner is a specialty for this location. Quiet table in a secluded corner. Champagne toast to start the meal. Wait staff was very friendly and made multiple suggestions for the meal. The GM is also a sommelier and spent time explaining the appropriate wine for our meals and went into a history of the wine and the area in which it was produced. Overall a very enjoyable meal as well and experience.
This restaurant is just outside of the town of Pinehurst, NC. The food is very fresh, farm to table, and exceptionally well prepared and creative. The service was well-done and friendly. It's perfect for those visiting Pinehurst on a golfing excursion who'd like exceptional cuisine in a casual setting. Really nice for the non-golfers and for families. Very pleasant.
Elliott's has a solid reputation, but the service was slow and the food, while above average, was not worth what we paid for it...we had 2 glasses of French wine each(we like California wines, but there were not solid choices, and a BIG pour is six ounces for $8.00), my wife had an appetizer and a salad. I had an entree and a salad. Our bill was $120.00. We can have a great dinner with good wine at a place like Chapman's or Char-bar for $70.00. Elliott's is over rated and expensive. The white napkin or black napkin option is pretentious....
Exceeded my expectations. The food was out of this world. We shared the pork cheek ravioli (my only complain is I needed a spoon to enjoy ALL the delicious cheese "fondue") and the fried calamari to start. The calamari was incredibly fresh and not greasy. The biscuits that they serve were delightful - just wanted them warm. For dinner, I ordered the salmon - a dish they've been serving for 17 years and it did not disappoint. The salmon was cooked to perfection. My husband ordered the ribeye - the special - and it was also cooked to perfection. For dessert, I was blown away by the blueberry goat cheese cheesecake. The perfect ending. The wine list was impressive and far from what I expected. A must-visit if you're in Pinehurst or Southern Pines.
This was our first trip to Elliott's but it definitely won't be our last. We wanted to break up our trip to the beach with a dinner in Pinehurst. We were traveling on Monday so there weren't many promising options. Fabulous serendipity finding this fabulous treasure. We were immediately impressed with their herb gardens ~ you got the feeling that everything came straight from the garden. My husband got the salmon ~ they delivered it to the table on a hot stone ~ very impressive! I got the halibut ~ it was very fresh and tasty but the presentation lacked luster. I was envious of my husbands sexy salmon. We ordered a side of truffle Mac and cheese ~ wow! ~ it was the best we've ever tasted. I tried to buy a quart to take to my friend back home who also has a fedish for this dish but ~ I was disappointed to hear that this was not an option. We look forward to our next visit.
We've gone to Elliott's several times now, well worth the 40 minute drive from Sanford. Always excellent farm to table food, great service. I had elk which was fantastic, my mother in law had the salmon special, my husband had a NY strip that was so tender it basically melted in your mouth, and my father in law had the filet which was excellent even though he ordered it well done. I highly recommend Elliott's to everyone especially for special occasions.
