People come for the falls. The outdoor table I had is just looking right at it. I went at 9:00 and there were a number of people eating at that hour and the kitchen was fantastic. So it was a trip of making 'firsts' happen....More

Enjoyed a lunch overlooking the water. We did not have a reservation but they were very accommodating. Friendly staff and good food. Fairly priced. Would definitely go again.

Went to Larkins before seeing the musical Bodyguard next door at the Peace Theatre. The appetizers and side portions of vegetables are huge and delicious.

Went for lunch and had a totally enjoyable time. Service was perfect, selections were varied and everyone had something different-- and everyone loved their choices. That's hard to do, but Larkin's came through perfectly.
