Larkin's on the River is an award-winning restaurant serving premium cut steaks, fresh seafood, and fine wines. Every menu item is created with the freshest ingredients and served with a creative flair. Larkin's on the River at the Peace Center for the performing arts, is situated in the heart of downtown Greenville, along the banks of the Reedy River, in the old Gower Coach Factory. This is the only building remaining of the original eleven dating back to Civil War. With beautiful preserved exposed brick walls and open ceilings, the history of the building serves as the perfect backdrop to the modern and hip atmosphere Larkin's on the River offers.

Food is excellent. Location is fantastic and service is great . be prepared to pay top dollar and the portions are obscene. I would suggest they lessen the quantity of the portions and reduce pricing accordingly. But you cannot argue that this is a top shelf steak place.

Larkin's is the place to go for fine dining. You can either dress up or dress down. You start out with a bread basket that is heavenly. For an appetizer we got the jumbo lump crab cake. It was delicious! We then ordered the Larkin's Three Course Signature Menu. House salad, 7 oz. filet mignon cooked to perfection (medium), with... More

Went here as a repeat customer. Service was good and quality of food was great. The atmosphere here is really what brought us back and we were not disappointed. A little pricey, but worth the $$.

With a prime location and really good food, Larkin's is able to charge premium prices and the place is packed. My order of a $12 salad was listed under the appetizers so it was quite small. For a full dinner expect to pay $75 per person. Too much in my opinion for anything but a special occasion.

First and clearly stated everyone in our party loved their steaks! Yes, these are some of the most expensive in Greenville however I am sure we will be back as the filets and ribeyes were tender, juicy and cooked to perfection (yes really). Our group of 5 enjoyed sharing appetizers and sides that were all well prepared and delicious. I... More

We have been to Larkin's many times but the waiter this time made the experience of dinner at Larkin's a very disappointing one. He was very unattentive and forgot to bring things all the time, we had to remind him of them. Even the good food could not improve this experience.

A great location by the river with a wonderful outdoor seating area. Friendly staff and a nice bar. Perfect for business, but honestly, the food quality doesn't match the price. I suppose as far as Greenville goes, you need to pay for the atmosphere.

I've been to Larkins about 6 times. This time I had an item off their Special List, a dry rubbed steak. The waiter didn't mentioned the price and I didn't ask. The steak was hugh but not especially tastie. I was taken back when I received the bill and learned it was $75. Most of their meals are reasonably priced... More
