The She-Crab soup has a zesty, comforting flavor, and the service here is second to none. It's obvious that the staff members really care about each other and about making the dining experience as pleasant and fine as possible. Good food, cozy ambiance, and kindness abound.

My wife and I ate at Larkins Carolina Grille on 11 December 2012 as part of a church group we serve with from Tryon UMC. Larkins is located in the center of Columbus, NC about 5 minutes from our home at Tryon Estates. The service is outstanding and popular with local people. The quality of the great. Their ribs are terrific and if I order a full rack, I most always take some home. The menu is full of choices that will please everyone who goes there. Popular for lunch and dinner. Also serve Sunday Brunch. If you are near Columbus, NC and hungry do not pass up Larkins Carolina Grille.

We had the she-crab soup, and really enjoyed it (which is saying something since we're from the SC coast). Also try the potato slabs and Philly French Dip. Great service and clean establishment. We will definitely try to go back.

After spending a long day at my daughters dance competition, we were starving. We wanted something good to eat that wasnt crowded and came across the Carolina Grill. We were seated immediatelyand the menu was diverse and the prices were affordable. The food was good but the desserts were even better. Try the lemon berry cake..it is to die for!

I stopped in for lunch for the first time last week alone to get some work done and eat a little something. The interior was tastefully decorated. The food was terrible. The spinach artichoke dip was something from a tube it had a very dull taste. The black and blue salad was aweful, my steak had the texture of a medium rare steak(as requested) but the steak was slightly old so it was not red nor pink. I ate two bites. The lettuce was your typical bagged spring mix with no flavor.
The staff was very nice and accommodating. But I will not return.
