My husband and I stopped for lunch at Larkins. You would have thought they were doing a "great service" (NOT) to find a table for us, not to mention, the lack of concern from the waitress! The food was absolutely tasteless! I have never left...More

The food here was delicious. Came with a group. I order fish and chips and it was delicious. Others at my table ordered ribs, and prime rib, nice and tender. Waiter was excellent!

The food was good, but entrees are a bit pricey. Be prepared to spend $25 and up per person for an entree. Service is OK. Wish I could have afforded something more than a sandwich but what I had was good.

Extensive menu with a lot of good choices. Prime rib is for hungry people as it is large. Soups and salads are all good. Very pleased with our dining experience and they have some great desserts too.

My husband and I stopped for lunch on the way out of town. They were pretty busy, but we were able to get a table on the deck overlooking Lake Lure. Prices were reasonable, good food/service, and the view was beautiful. Will definitely come back...More
