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

We're from Washington DC but we've spent many evenings exploring dining in the Southern Pines and Pinehurst area. Among the handful of pretty darn good restaurants, Eliot's on Linden stands out as the best. I had a seafood special both times we went this week (one based on triggerfish and the other based on halibut); and my wife had their signature salmon on a plank with a Jack Daniels based glaze. Both were 10's - the quality of the fish was impressive; they were not just getting by on the creative preparations. One night we were joined by hungry Army officers who also enjoyed their offerings including duck and steak. Cheese and charcuterie offerings featured local dairy and butcher products and were great. Eliot's menu highlights the area farms that are their suppliers.

My wife and I, being Pinehurst residents, have been to Elliot's before and were anxious to take our out of town guests to it. We had early reservations, which was very easy on-line. The food was excellent, the service, Carol, was delightful and very helpful with the menu. She made everything sound so good and patiently repeated the somewhat complex specials. It was a little noisy because a couple got engaged. We never saw the propective groom, but the bride to be came running into the main dining room from the bar to announce their engagement. She was a little more than tipsy, but it was still fun to watch them. The food was fresh, which is the best part of Eliiots. The wine was very good with the meal, but we found the same one at another Pinehurst Restaurant 2 nights later for $11 less. So, the corking fee is a little steep. But, overall, our friends can't wait to come back. They thought the decor was very extremely nice also.

My wife is a vegetarian. She did not see anything that appealed on the menu, and we considered leaving. However, the waitress persuaded her that the chef would come up with something she would like. My wife loved the vegetarian pasta that the chef prepared. I had the duck and thought it was superb. The waitress was friendly and helpful in the extreme. I had a very minor complaint that there was a bit too much of a wait after the salad and before the entree arrived. Overall, however, this was an excellent dining experience.

The fish special I ordered was extremely salty. I moved to Pinehurst 9 years ago and the food was SPECTACULAR in the past, but the past two times it has been diner quality. I spent $70 on extremely salty fish, to the point my mouth was numb.
I was out with a friend and didn't want to ruin the night, so I didn't complain.

Elliott's is my go to restaurant to unwind, relax, and enjoy some great food and spirits when I travel through the area. I always bring co-workers with me and none of them have been disappointed. Excellent food, service, and ambiance as always.

We went here for my mom's 60th birthday and were blown away by the atmosphere, wine/ cocktails and food. My only complaint would be the noise level (our waitress had a hard time hearing us, but she was VERY nice), and that it took quite a while to get our food. They were also out of the bottle of wine we wanted, so gave us something comparable but ended up being more expensive. Either way, we really had a special evening and will be returning.

The restaurant was in a good location and we were given a recommendation by a friend. There was only one server working and she was clearly working hard but unfortunately we didn't receive a lot of attention. I had the caprese salad pizza and it was more of a flatbread. I didn't like it very much. I would be willing to try the restaurant again but this visit did not wow is by any mean.

The food was fantastic. The waitress appeared to know little about the menu (had to read them from notes). At another table, another waitress know them from memory and told other customers of a special that our server didn't tell us was available. They were out of a signature lamb dish and had limited (1-3) plates available with other menu items. They were out of their well vodka and thus limited drinks unless you wanted to pay a $3 up charge.
The food we ordered always great. Service was pathetic, at best.

We had a fantastic dinner, just as we were beginning to lose faith in the touted restaurants! Sarah was our server and she was wonderful. I could have tried so much from the menu but alas I only have 1 stomach to fill. Thank you EOL and Sarah!!

We celebrated our 34 th wedding anniversary. The restaurant congratulated us, sat us by the window and the wait person took our picture and raeally made the evening social. The elk chops and rack of la,b were wonderful. We ordered a very nice bottle of wine which was superb. We will go back to this wonderful gem.

We had a reservation. They set us in the bar despite having an empty dining room. We asked to be moved but were turned down.
Waiter forgot bread service and told us the specials after we had already ordered.
Duck was tough, un-sliced and lukewarm.
Restaurant doesn't come close to delivering for the price you pay.
Try others in Moore County.

My wife and I went to celebrate our 9 year anniversary and was immediately blow away by the service upon arrival. The hostess managed to arrange the best table in the house within an hour notice. By far the best dinning experience we've ever had.

Ambiance and decor was fantastic. Menu was unique. Specials on board were a little hard to read from our seat. Filet melted in your mouth. Pork tacos were crazy spicy but good. Dessert (Apple/blueberry crumble with ice cream) tasted very good but was barely warm. Would've been better heated up more. Would definitely go back. Reservations recommended.

Commendations for "excellent" service from entering Elliot's, dinner and departing. Food ordered was exceptional and each course arrived with perfect timing. My visiting guest and I never felted rushed and were able to spend our time catching up. Once again, Elliot's never disappoints.

Elliott's on Linden has become a fast favorite. I love the decor and ambience. The food is original, absolutely delicious and locally sourced. What more could you want? The wine selection is excellent. On the 5-6 times I've eaten at Elliott's the food was superb and the staff very friendly. I recommend the Shrimp & Grits as an appetizer to share (enough for 3-4 people) or as an entrée. The scallops appetizer is divine, as well. For the main course, you can't go rong with the lamb, elk, or the daily seafood specials. If on a low-sodium diet, be sure to mention that. Sometimes the sides are a bit salty for my tastes (fingerling potatoes & veggies). It's expensive, but worth it for a nice evening out or special occasion.

2 entrees and 1 glass of wine tax and tip $100.
If I am spending $100 there are other restaurants I would opt for.
The wine by the glass was 5/10. The waiter never asked me which I wanted. Just assumed the $10. Soft shell crabs could have been crispier. The duck was tough and too much sauce drowned the plale.
Girls night out
there were five of us for our "girls night out", we had excellent service, delicious food, ordered across the menu, a couple of us had a starter course with salad, our server had a special dessert made as requested, there was no problem getting individual checks and overall the evening and dinner were terrific. We will definitely do that again.
Clearly The Best Food
This is definitely our go-to spot for special occasions. The food is always outstanding. The servers are well informed, and courteous, although not the quality of service you might expect for the prices. Classic dishes like Roast Chicken, and Shrimp and Grits are extraordinary, Chicken and Waffles like you've never tasted before!
Easily the best in Moore County.
The food was ok. Pork chop was decent but the star of the plate was the plantain. My fiancé had salmon - undercooked and overall not very good. The manager comp'ed us the salmon and a dessert, so I appreciated the attempt to make things right.
Best item of the night was the cheesecake.

I had out of town guests and made a reservation at Elliott's. Two people had the two fish specials, one couldn't eat his it was so bad, and the other ate most of his, but said it was dry and overlooked. The third person had pork, which was overlooked and tough. We have been to Elliott's before, and the food is never consistent. I would not recommend this restaurant, as you never know if the food is prepared well or not. Very embarrassing. I would not return to this restaurant.
