Larkin's On The Lake provided a great experience for our group of 60+ for a mid-week dinner. The delicious food was only surpassed by the service. The manager and her team of servers did an outstanding job. I truly enjoyed the prime rib, and the pumpkin cheesecake was more than memorable. I plan to go back with my wife at... More

Food is excellent and if weather is good outdoor dining has a great view. Only drawback is that the parking is somewhat limited

We are fans! We have been to Larkin's at least 10 times.Personally, I prefer to go when we can eat outside; not that the inside isn't charming enough or funky, it is BUT eating on the lake with the view from that deck is where it's at! They have great food in addition to the view... I recommend the French... More

When greeted, we were offered to eat downstairs where we could be near the lake or in the upper area. We chose the lake view as the weather permitted this. The servers were wonderful. We enjoyed our evening meal and the view of the lake. It was a fun atmosphere and great food.

We had a quick dinner and the food was quite good. The She Crab soup is one of their specialties and it is terrific. The view is great as well (overlooks the lake). Just after we arrived a tour bus dropped a very large crowd of seniors--maybe 80 people, but we did get served and our waitress kept her cool... More

I would recommend reservations. We eat early so we still had a lovely view of Lake Lure, but it got very busy after we arrived. The menu has many steak and seafood choices. The prices are in the $20 - $30 area. They also have a less expensive menu on the back with sandwiches and shrimp and fish baskets, so... More
