We really like Larkins on the Lake. We've never eaten inside, only outside. The view is beautiful. The servers are friendly, and the food is wonderful...a little pricey, but worth every penny. My kids love it because their meals come on frisbees. My husband loves the steak, and I like the prime rib sandwich. The only downfall is parking...there isn't... More

We stayed in Boone NC over Christmas holiday up from Florida and decided to venture out to Chimney Rock and on the way back to Boone found Larkin's. Mainly picked it because it was on the lake and looked just beautiful. There are two main eating places, one is more fancier than the other. I liked that it had two... More

A wedding rehearsal dinner was held here the night before. Tough to find the entrance at night, so slow down.

We stopped here for lunch while driving around Lake Lure and are glad we did! The kids' menu had a nice selection that made everyone in our family happy. The menu is also marked with gluten free options, including buns for the burgers. My husband with celiac thoroughly enjoyed his burger, and they even brought him unbreaded fries without us... More

I ate in the main dining room over Thanksgiving weekend. There are two options- you can eat in the bar downstairs which is not that nice and has a strong beer smell, and the upstairs restaurant which is much nicer and overlooks the lake. When we first got there, the host kinda had a weird unenthusiastic look to her. The... More

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

In all of the resturants we have been to, this place is amoung the top. Service was perfect, and the food was six star. !!!! One person in our party had the prime rib and said it was the best EVER. Awonderful place and a wonderful time. We wish we lived closer.
