I love the location of Larkins. It overlooks the Reedy River. I have been there a couple of time the past few months. It is steps away from the Peace Center where there are many performances throughout the year. I am not a steak eater, but they have plenty of options on their menu. I usually sit at the bar... More

We were driving in to Greenville and on nearly every website, Larkins received very high marks, so we decided to give it a try. After eating there yesterday, we cannot agree. First, it took nearly 45 minutes for us to receive our lunch. The waiter was somewhat apologetic for the crazy time in the kitchen, but lunch is lunch even... More

We have been to Larkin's twice - once a year ago for our wedding dinner (for 10) and again last week for our 1st anniversary. Both times we had a superb dinner experience. Larkin's get's it all right...classy but relaxed and still fun, good energy, great staff, and necessarily excellent food and wine. Our oysters, table-side Caesar salad, steaks, and... More

Every time we go to Grenville we make sure that we eat at this restaurant. The she crab soup is the best we have ever eaten and the service is excellent. They take great pride in their food and service. We did run into a problem, I ordered fish which was excellent and my wife a steak, medium well. The... More

Each and every choice -7 all together- was perfect! Not one thing wrong, which is rare! One of the best steaks and done exactly as we asked (the rare was rare, without blood covering the plate, which means, to me, that they age their meat appropriately). The service exactly as it should, very informed, very proper and attentive but not... More

In town for a concert we decided to stop at Larkin's for lunch and ended up having Eggs Benedict Filets. We had great service by Kevin and ended with yummy creme Brûlée which was yummy!

This place is really lovely and the staff is great! However I have been there 3 times and ordered the Tuna and it has been sub par (actually had to send back twice). For the price and caliber of the restaurant it shouldn't be that way. However it's a nice spot (hence why I have been back), so maybe it... More

We chose this location to celebrate after my future son-in-law proposed to my daughter down near the falls. A horse-drawn carriage ride dropped them off at the top of the stairs on Main Street, fitful for my princess's arrival. Dinner never disappoints at Larkins. The menu features choices to please the most discriminating palate, and the wine list is ample... More

What a great restaurant! When we were visiting family in the area we went here for dinner. From early cocktails at the bar through dinner on the patio we had an enjoyable dining experience. The food and service were exceptional, our waiter was right there whenever something was wanted. Would love to go here again.

First time here, and very pleased. Stopped in for lunch, and had a great soup and sandwich special. My wife chose she crab soup, friends had great salad plates. Very lovely location on the river, very good service. Quiet and relaxing for late lunch.
