Had the opportunity to eat at Larkins twice during our visit to Bright's Creek in Mill Spring, NC. The food was good and reliable. The view was incredible. This is a great place to enjoy an afternoon with friends.

We had crab cakes and prime rib- both were very good. Desserts were also excellent. Friendly service. Tip- bread is included but you have to ask for it. A little odd that they don't offer.

Beautiful restaurant, great decor & superior service. I has a full rack of ribs which was too much to eat! They were to die for . Ha ha, cute waitresses too! Worth the trip to Lake Lure just for the meal.

The service and food were top shelf! Eating by the water offered a pleasant dining experience. We arrived lakeside as part of the lake lure dinner sunset cruise. Can't wait to go back.

We loved coming here for both lunch and dinner. The restaurant is very laid back with awesome views of the lake. You can also come here by boat. We loved their burgers, shrimp, and salmon. I highly recommend getting a bucket of Lake Water :)

Our famiy of four ate here while visiting Chimney Rock/Lake Lure and had a wonderful meal -- the prime rib is fantastic. We had a table by the big glass windows with a terrific view of the lake -- it was... More

My family spends a week at Lake Lure every year, and each year we look forward to eating at Larkins. INSIDE, this restaurant has a pub-like feel. The food is fine, but not notable in any way. What is wonderful and special is when you can sit outside on one of the two porches, and watch the sunset over Lake... More
