Excellent venue for wedding and reception. Buffet food was pretty good, would love to try the restaurant on its own.

I attended a wedding and reception at Larkin's on the River. This is a very convenient venue as they have room for a small wedding/event and can accommodate dinner as well. First of all the location is fantastic, downtown Greenville, SC is hands down one of the best downtown areas anywhere and Larkin's is located right on the river in... More

Private, quiet and varied menu for any business lunch. Service is attentive without being invasive. Usually not crowded. Reasonably priced

The restaurant was top of it class, will be indeed be returning. So much food in the servings I did not expect that much. The she crab soup was one of a kind. So rich, and meaty. I smiled with every bite. The parmesan fries was a game changer that everybody needs to step to. The herbs was mixed in... More

Beautiful day in a great spot. Had brunch at larkin's and all is good. Service terrific and my shrimp and grits was just what this guy from up north was looking for in fine southern cooking. A Greenville must.

We were celebrating our anniversary and the couple joining us, celebrating their birthdays. The food and service is highly overrated.... we found Larkins extremely over-priced- food quality just fair- and service medium. The biggest complaint- was later finding out this establishment charged our credit cards twice. Both of us ! When contacting the restaurant manager he was sarcastic and rude... More

Nice location. I feel like we entered from the back door. Is there a front door? Service was great. Food was great. Atmosphere was nice. Good couples place. Prices were up there, so save this place for a special night. Loved the pecans in the house salad. Tenderloin was great, so was the veal. We were too full to try... More

Husband, Daughter and I ate New Years Eve Dinner here. We called to make a reservation a few weeks in advance, since we knew it would be crowded for the holiday. The ambiance was great, it's right on the water, and we sat outside on the covered porch, which was very warm due to all the heat lamps! Our waiter... More

Wonderful atmosphere, amazing menu. Don't forget to try the drinks. I had the ossobucco, which was incredible. It's right on the river so it makes for a nice walk afterwards.
