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
My wife and I had a most enjoyable birthday celebration in this lovely setting in Pinehurst. The service was almost immediate and particularly personal. The food was perfect, and the evening a great success. This is a special place in a beautiful setting staffed by professionals. What a joy!
The waitress was very flighty and confused. We ordered a bottle of wine and they were out of it. Started to order salad with the white asparagus, they just ran out of it, and it wasn't even 7:30. We waited over an hour for our entrée after we finished our salad. I ordered the Salmon cooked on a plank. Took two bites only to fine it RAW! My husbands rice was very sticky. They did not charge me for my meal was what is appropriate. It was a very disappointing evening and we will not go back. Will not recommend it either.
My wife loved the Silver Fizz and my martini was prepared by a Master.
The Starter was an adventure in tastes, mussels, curry brittle and something else whose name I don't remember, but it was scrumptious. Everyone else had striped bass and I had the rack and I heard no complaints, in fact there was little conversation.
I live next door (Pinewild) and have been dining there for 12 years and have never had a bad meal.
Our first visit here (2/18/17) was exceptional! Robert was our server and he made our dining experience such a pleasure! He was very knowledgeable about the menu, gave us plenty of time to make our decisions, and checked on us throughout our meal to make sure we were completely satisfied. The food was outstanding! We can't wait to come back. Many thanks Robert for making our visit so enjoyable!
We made our "reservation for two" nearly a month in advance yet were seated next next to the bar area. It was incredibly loud and all the tables were in the "traffic area" of the staff. We asked to move and they reluctantly agreed after some discussion. Then we were moved to another area, but next to the kitchen and right next to a large group. It was an early reservation and there were several other tables for two open across the room. Entire experience was just terrible. Before any drinks or food was served we informed our waiter that we had to leave. He was very kind and gracious.
Everything was great until the chef kept screaming from the kitchen "Service!" That's all we kept hearing the entire evening. Very disappointing considering the money we spent there. If I want to hear the chef yelling at the servers, I'll go to a diner and pay A LOT LESS.
It was an hour before we got our entree and another 50 minutes went by before we got our dessert after ordering it. We were told that it had been given to someone else, sorry for the wait. We were disappointed in the time it took to receive our food, and also the lack of professionalism with which our dessert order was handled. Offering to take it off the bill at minimum would have been sufficient. We look forward to dining at Elliot's with our family on Christmas Eve and on a date for our anniversary but we may consider eating somewhere else after this experience.
We've been to Elliot's a few times and have always been happy with the food but not this time. The pork bellies were so salty, it was like dining on a deer salt lick. Horrible. The server was kind enough to let the chef know and take it off our bill. The choices for dinner the night we were there were not our favorites. It would have been great to have the restaurant website up to date so we could view the menu beforehand. We did that and were excited for some of the items listed only to find they were not available on that evening. According to staff, they don't update the website regularly (what a shame). Next time, we plan to call ahead to find out what is on the menu so we can make a decision to dine or not. We'll go back but maybe for lunch next time.
The waitstaff was so helpful! I'm new to the area and they set me up with different events happening at the restaurant and local hangouts. The food was absolutely amazing I strongly recommend the Cobb Salad split between two people for an appetizer and the salmon special.
My first time at Eliots. Made a reservation 6 weeks out for 6 people. When the 4 elderly members of my party arrived, they were seated in the bar, even when told they had a reservation. Elderly people cannot hear in a bar atmosphere. When asked about a certain beer in the menu, our waitress explained her medical condition that prevented her from drinking beer. Service was slow and not attentive. At the end of our dinner, I noticed several menu specials posted the bar. The waitress never mentioned these specials. Would not return here.
The menu was interesting. The service was outstanding. The calamari was extremely tender and the scallop appetizer was very flavorful. We had the opportunity to sample wine before ordering a glass. The filet Mignon melts in your mouth and our friends gave the cedar planked salmon rave reviews. The kitchen did a great job of getting our food out quickly despite the full restaurant on New Year's Eve.
Our meal was very disappointing. The bok choy salad was delicious, but everything else was mediocre, at best. The chopped salad was lettuce and little else. The tuna tartar tasted like soy sauce had been poured over it straight. Even the creme brule was uninspired. When I go to a restaurant and spend over $100 for 2 people, I expect special food. I will not be returning to Elliot's.
We have continued returning to Elliot's as it has quickly become our favorite place in the Southern Pines area. Being from Chicago I'm used to a certain quality of restaurant and EoL goes above and beyond that expectation. Wonderful food, seasonal and fresh, and a caring wait staff. We will keep coming back!
The whom this may concern,
The waitress was transient, but gave decent service. The food took a very long time to prepare. There were extremely noisy guests sitting right beside us, although we requested to be sat away from busy, noisy, high-traffic areas. Despite our requests, we were sat by an entrance beside the nosiest party in the history of man. This party was then joined by a random, belligerent drunk, walking back from the restroom. Management didn't seem to care, and this continued on for the entirety of our stay.
The waitress was very apologetic about what was happening. She offered a free birthday dessert, but had to convince the cooks to let us take it to-go. I assume this was to make up for the terrible evening. I declined the dessert at first, but my fiancé and I decided that we would accept the offer if we could take it home in a to-go box. Upon receiving the dessert, we were asked to return the dish that the dessert was served in, if we ever came back. This demand was passed down by the management staff, as the waitress was clearly uncomfortable making such a request. What makes the request so ridiculous is the fact that the visit was so terrible. Everything about the evening was horrible from the time we walked into the restaurant until we left, with the exception of the food.
This was to be a very special dinner/evening, to celebrate my fiancé's birthday. I paid you for a service that I did not receive. I brought her from an hour away to visit this establishment, in hopes that you would be able to deliver on your advertising. Instead, I found Elliot's to deliver the worst experience I have ever experienced in dining.
We arrived and were seated by a great hostess who gave us a rundown on the menu and specials and were told our waitress would be with us shortly. 30 minutes later we put in our drink and dinner order. We shared a terrific chopped salad and then waited one hour for our dinner to arrive. Literally every diner was gone from the restaurant by then except us. And we still waited. Finally, we got our dinner that had clearly been sitting under the heat lamps for a LONG time. One entrée was inedible - halibut that was very salty and completely dried out, with tempura green beans that were unrecognizable. Salmon was overcooked and only edible because there was a sauce with it. Our waitress was very apologetic and 20 minutes later brought out another halibut entrée that was cooked and then served immediately...quite a difference. We were really disappointed because I had read some very good reviews.
My husband ordered the elk dish and it was undercooked. We had to send it back to be cooked a bit more. The dish itself was covered in sauce which made it difficult to actually taste the beauty of the elk. He ordered the Mac and cheese as a side and it was overlooked and dry.
Everyone else in our group had the chicken and waffles. All of our dishes were cold and poorly executed. The idea of chicken and waffles sounds delicious but it fell short of our expectations.
I made a reservation with a request for a wheelchair accessible table. Although Elliot's does not have an ADA accessible ramp at either entrances, we were able to access my dad's wheelchair over one of the doors with the smallest threshold. The staff were absolutely so polite and helpful, offering to assist, and gave us a feeling they really wanted to make the evening for my dad enjoyable and comfortable. The hostess, our waiter, and at least two other staff members just passing by all made an effort to show some kindness. Thank you very much, Elliot's.
My husband and I had a delicious dinner here while visiting Pinehurst. We were delighted to get out after being housebound all day in Hurricane Matthew. Our meal was delicious and well prepared from start to finish. Our table was in sort of a bottleneck for customers and servers, otherwise the experience was a good one.
