“A nice view with Lunch”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

We had lunch at the outdoor patio called the Bayfront Bar & Grill, same location same Kitchen, different name, the seating looks out over Lake Lure, a nice craft beer selection, the chicken club and the spicy veggie burger were good but the Crème Brule for dessert was served cols and was a bit watery but that was my only complant.

“Good Food and a great view”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

Great place to eat lunch or dinner. Reasonably priced. Sit outside and enjoy the views of Lake Lure. The service was good and staff helpful and friendly. Having eaten here several times. the food is consistent. Its worth the trip if you haven't eaten here.

“Larkin's is a must.”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

From the outdoor bar on the water to the inside dining room - dinner here is always a pleasure. A little hard to get in and out of by car, has a few boat slips too, but the location is very handy.

“Food has gone downhill”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Stopped in for dinner at an old favorite and the food was not good. The veggie burger was tasteless and my husband's chicken fingers were also not good. Beautiful view but the food was a shame.

“Love the view.”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

The best thing about Larkin's is sitting outside on their patio and deck with absolutely fabulous lake and mountain views. If you have a boat, you can dock at the restaurant. The food is simple, but good. They also have a pretty good bar.
