“Beautiful down by the reedy river dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

My first visit to the downtown Greenville SC area. What a beautiful transformation over the years. Wonderful restaurant Larkin's. Excellent wait staff. Very attentive but not pushy. Great selection from beef to seafood to my dish the Ossining bucco. Wonderful flavor and tender as well. Oysters Rockefeller were wonderful as well. Excellent wine list at reasonable prices for all levels of vine afficianados to chose from.

“Saved my evening!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

My first trip to Larkin's was one evening after receiving terrible service from a nearby competitor. I was incredibly late due to the first restaurant but Larkin's got me in and out in time to catch the show. The service was spectacular and the food was amazing. I have returned several times and will continue to return. If you are looking for a great steak in downtown Greenville, this is the place to visit. If you are seeing a show at the Peace Center just let them know you are a show table. They will even store your leftovers in the refrigerator for you to pick up afterward. Very nice service. Great restaurant!

“Larkin's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

Like all the great restaurants in Greenville, this has excellent food, outstanding service and always a personal touch. Great wine list, as well. Larkin's is right on the river so eating on the pation provides a lovely view and wonderful ambience.

“Made Me Feel Special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

My husband took me to dinner here to celebrate my birthday. It was a memorable experience. Not only was the food delicious, but they asked my husband when he made the reservation if we were celebrating anything special and he told them my birthday. When we arrived, there was a card on our table with a hand-written note wishing me a happy birthday. And they gave me a complimentary dessert. They made me feel very special!!
