“pretentious and did not live up to the billing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2011

We had a large group(12) who arrived in stages. The first 2 guys ordered beer and both got the wrong beers. It did not get much better after that.
It took 45 minutes to get our order placed. the first course(lobster ravioli) was lukewarm when it got to the table. They were out of several wines that we tried to order. Two guys ordered a grilled pork chop and both were terribly undercooked. One when it came back was inedible. They left it on the check, only removing it when we insisted.
Several of the entrees were excellant, though, but overall it was a dissappoitment. especially when the check was close to a $1000. Maybe they are ill equipped to handle large parties, but if so, should not take the reservation. It just seemed like they didn't really care that much.

“Ask your waiter for the specials; they won't disappoint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2011

My husband and I were visiting Pinehurst house hunting and were given a recommendation to Elliott's. We browsed through the menu and quickly realized that EOL focuses on local, in season foods. We then decided to order around specials so to fully capitalize on this philosophy. Our dinner was delicious, the wine suggested by the waiter was wonderful. We did buy a second home there and will be back this weekend to partake at Elliott's on Linden.

“Excellence in TOTALITY!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2010

I am a firm believer that most people do not write reviews unless they've had a bad experience. I must give this restaurant credit as it is due. I drive 50 minutes once a week to eat lunch at Elliott's and have yet to be disappointed. It has become a very personable experience where the waitress remembers my order and makes recommendations for items that are not on the menu. The food is delightfully delicious. I have yet to eat dinner at Elliott's but the lunch is amazing. Excellent food, friendly catering staff, nice country atmosphere. My only con would be that the dining area is a little small.

“Very nice first dinner in Pinehurst”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2010

Traveling with my husband, we arrived in Pinehurst and decided the EOL was fairly close to our condo. Made reservations on line and saw the menu ahead of time so I was comfortable with the dinner choices. There were just a few tables occupied when we arrived but I did note a table set for a large group.
We liked the atmosphere, the music, the menu and wine choices and our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. Appetizers (pear and Stilton salad and butternut squash ravioli) were excellent as were the entrees (steak and beef skewers). Service was initially very good. Partway through the meal the large group (12 women on a golfing trip) arrived. We knew they were on a golfing trip because the whole restaurant could hear their conversations. Thus endeth the quiet dinner and attentive service. Our waiter was occupied by that group. The restaurant started to seat diners in the a separate little room - this is where the loud group should have been placed.
Other than that, we really enjoyed the meal and would return if we're back in the area. It's not like many of the other restaurants in the area (chains, traditional menus) but exactly the type of place we enjoy.
