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
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.
We were so pleasantly surprised with very friendly staff, willing to go out if their way, made a special off the menu ginger martini because we smelled the ginger simple syrup they were making! The pork cheek ravioli is amazing, tuna tartar excellent, the salmon was to die for. It's a gem!
WOW what a gem of a restaurant! In town for a business event, we wanted to find a good local restaurant at which to dine. There was not ONE thing we ordered from that wasn't FANTASTIC (including the craft-cocktails). Billed as a farm-to-table restaurant, it certainly fulfilled this expectation. I swear they picked the lettuce from the salad right before it was served! And WHAT great service. Despite the fact they were not busy (and we were the last table in the restaurant), they were kind and accomodating and did NOT make us feel rushed at all. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting from out of town, and will DEFINITELY make a point to dine here again when I return!
Another great meal. Not only did we have excellent service, but also wonderful ,creative, and varied menu items. Four who I have dined with there the last 4 years all got different entrees and bragged about who had made the best selection. Nearby to Pinehurst resort where there are many fine eating establishments but we will always return here for a special night.
The food was very good, and the location very convenient to where I live. I took my mother there for Mothers Day, and it was a nice treat. I didn't realize, however, it was a price fix 4 course meal that day. Ended up being a bit pricier than I anticipated because of that.
While the meal was very good, I went looking forward to the duck that is on the nightly menu - it's a favorite of mine that I rarely get.
But again, it was a very nice restaurant with very good food.
We went to Elliott's for our anniversary & were treated to a glass of champagne to celebrate. We had the elk, the pork chop & the chopped salad, which were all prepared beautifully. Service was excellent. We very much enjoyed our experience & will definitely return on any future trips to Pinehurst.
What a great find! You need to like great food and wine to go there. The staff was very polite , attentive and helpful but not too formal so you felt relaxed. We were the last night of a golf trip and never consider the buffets or chains - at least as long as I am in charge of reservations. We like to go local establishments with a good wine list as a must. This fit the requirements. There was Elk as a first time dish for a couple of guys. A special was Halibut and it was special. The wine bar is really unique and have only seen it in larger cities where the dispensing is well controlled so that wine is not decanted too long. Being able to get a "tasting" pour only encouraged the trial of wines previously undiscovered. There was no rush. It is casual dining, but the guy with his hat on looked out of place. I could see this as an impressive stop for a date, telling your wife she is special, or impressing a client.
Elliott's never disappoints! Their wine list is extensive and has offerings from modest to indulgent budgets. The chef uses seasonal ingredients, many of which come from the garden behind the restaurant. The menu choices range from the traditional to the creative. The plank salmon and rabbit pot pie are signature dishes to try.
Our waiter was good. Service was slow. The chef came out to ask how the food was and that was a very nice touch. Two of my companions had been there for lunch before and had the salmon. We were told that it was unavailable, along with our request for the dinner calamari appetizer. This was disappointing, but we were fine with it. My complaint is regarding the online reservation system. When I reserved, we requested a 1:30 reservation for 5. There seemed to be nothing available. So we made it for 4 at 12.30..much earlier than we actually wanted because we are a 45 minute drive from the restaurant. We were all shocked to find that the restaurant was practically empty when we arrived with one group of 5 older women having lunch. The companions who had recommended this restaurant were apologetic as they had two previous dining experiences that were very positive. My suggestion is if you are going to do online reservations, please try to be accurate regarding availability. We were given the impression that the restaurant was fully booked because we were unable to get the reservation we requested.
THE WAIT STAFF MANAGED OUR LARGE PARTY OF NINE VERY WELL. SOME HAD TO EAT AND RUN AND OTHERS COULD LINGER OVER DINNER. THE TIME PREPARATION FOR CERTAIN ENTREES WAS EXPLAINED. I WILL WAIT FOR THE RABBIT WHEN I HAVE UNLIMITED TIME. MmANY OF US HAD THE TRADITIONAL SALMON SPECIALTY; IT WAS DELICIOUS
Another most discriminating gourmet meal from what has now become our favorite restaurant. The mache rosette blend salad was exceptionally tasty followed by an interestingly prepared (and presented) surf/turf entree accompanied with green beans and baby carrots. Afterward we were treated to an extensive buffet of pastry delights. Overall, this was a wonderful investment of our time and money. We'll be back soon!
I took a friend and my 93 year-old dad there for Easter brunch/lunch. They had a prix fixe menu. Dining began with a charcuterie board, then several choices for appetizers and entrees. A dessert table, complete with chefs making crepes and bananas foster, was the final course. Between the three of us, we had three of the appetizers and entrees. They were all expertly prepared and artistically presented. My dad ate every drop of his lobster bisque, steak, and two bananas foster. The service, as usual, was excellent. This was our third Easter in a row, and we are never disappointed. They are always patient and kind to my dad.
The salmon on the cedar plank for excellent! My son and hubby had steaks and they ate every bite. The mac n cheese was creamy and cheesy but it had truffles . Yeck. Just keep it classic and stay with the basics on this one. The tiny teeny baby itsy bitsy biscuits were so strange. We each received just one. Nothing else just one and they were size of a quarter. Just an odd presentation but they were tasty! We liked the vibe and decor . Certainly going back to try some other items on the menu ! 👍🏼
Can't say enough good things. Only been twice in last year since moving back here. The wait staff is the best of the best. Always so friendly and helpful. Food is beyond wonderful!! Wine is great. Would so like to make this our Friday date night place but just a little pricey for that. But can't wait to go again. Even our 20 year old picky son loves it.
