The location was good. Beautiful area. We got the bone in filet, wedge and asparagus. The food was ok but wish we had went to the chop house actually. Very expensive not sure I will try it again.

Graduation celebration for my son. It needs to be a special occasion, because it is not inexpensive. That being said the food and service are commensurate with the price. Steaks are excellent and cooked to perfection. Caesar salad is made fresh at tableside. All the ladies ordered fish, and we joked that the chef had to ask the staff in... More

Stopped for quick lunch through town. The location is near the river and parkway. There is an outside patio area; very pretty! Our lunches were good; burgers and Reuben sandwich. The Reuben was tasty and chips (I think) were homemade! The service was good. No kids menu which we knew so no biggie for us. Tips: Request to go cups... More

Atmosphere is great. My lobster bisque was great. The Creme Brulee for dessert was also great. The main course, however was not that good. I ordered the "Larkin's Reserved Steaks: Dry Aged Center Cut Ribeye" at rare+ temperature. Oh man was this hurt my jaw. I had to chew like crazy otherwise I would choke. This steak was not aged...

We have lived in Greenville for awhile but for some reason we had never been to Larkin's. What a pleasant surprise! I let them know it was our 46th anniversary when I made the reservation and we were treated like royalty from the moment my wife and I arrived. The staff had a nice card on the table and our...

A very nice silver service restaurant - great food, good service. With friends, I enjoyed a lovely lunch in a glorious setting. Chicken caesar was very nice, companions had steak salad, another cottage pie, another steak - all were very good. A shared platter for dessert rounded off a lovely meal - not cheap but very nice and I would... More

We just moved to Greenville SC from Chicago. As you may know Chicago is known for their great steak houses. We had heard from our son that Larkin's was a great local steakhouse. We decided as a celebration for our move we would try it out. The restaurant is located in a beautiful location on the Reedy river. Note the... More
