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.

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.
The food was very good, but the $200+ bill with tip was unreasonable. When my wife ordered her wine, she misunderstood that $10/$20 pricing was for a half glass vs. a full glass. She got what were termed two full glasses that looked like normal pours for $40. That may have been our mistake, but it seemed a little cagey to me. Since I don't drink wine, I didn't even notice until the bill came.
Since we just returned from a 12-day trip to the East Coast, we have eaten in several nice restaurants, but they were all less expensive per person and had food that was, at least, as good in every case.
Hope this helps someone.
A nice find in Pinehurst.
We had a steak, "pink" grouper special and their signature salmon. We think they got something wrong in the kitchen because the steak wasn't really hot and the salmon was 10 minutes later than the other food. But the manager apologized and comped the wine. Restaurant aficionados might complain but we were friends, having a good time, and weren't in a rush. We all enjoyed our food and would certainly go again when in Pinehurst. They think a lot of their wine list noting the prices but we found a very nice red blend for less than $30. The food is a little pricy but certainly not unreasonable with unique items for everyone's taste. Order a half salad with dinner.
Elliot's- Never a bad decision!
We dine at Elliot's several times a year. We go back because we've never had less than exceptional experiences there. The occasion this time was our ninth anniversary. When I made the reservations, I mentioned we were celebrating our anniversary. The team there made special entre plans and brought out complimentary champagne. We celebrated a special evening and enjoyed a fabulous meal, wonderful wine from their cellar, excellent deserts, and stellar service. I give them five stars!
Elliot's is a fantastic place. Great food, great service and a warm, inviting atmosphere. In my mind, it's the best restaurant in Pinehurst/Southern Pines despite some very strong competition. The food is very creative and the wine list has great variety.
Special dinner at Elliott's
We had a lovely Valentine's Day dinner at Elliott's in Pinehurst. Choices were great but we were pleased with the excellent lamb with veggie and tasty Sticky Toffee Pudding for dessert. We will be back to try some of the other items on Mark's menu and wine list. Thank you!
