This is the only building remaining of the original eleven dating back to Civil War. With beautiful preserved exposed brick walls and open ceilings, the history of the building serves as the perfect backdrop to the modern and hip atmosphere Larkin's on the River offers.

We ate at Larkin's for dinner and there were only a couple of other groups dining, which made the atmosphere kind of depressing. Food was average, and at this price point there are better options in downtown Greenville. I would recommend Soby's instead.

This was our third visit and everything is always the same... good, but not great. The problem may be that we were always in the bar, or outside to eat (my fault for not making reservations more in advance). Again, I have no complaints... the food was good, service good (if very busy), and the price was reasonable for the location, etc. We will return. I just keep hoping for that special result I read in other reviews.

Great ambiance with outdoor seating also available. Fantastic menu with wonderful well prepared basic items such as steaks and lobster tail. They also have gourmet items but not exotic like so many restaurants have gone to.
Service was excellent and prices were moderate for this type of experience.

The food was perfect, lots of it, and the server was knowledgeable. Right by the river, downtown, it was a great place to eat with friends.

Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback! We think our Certified Angus Beef is the best in the city and it's nice to hear from guests who think the same thing! When you get back to Greenville, come check out the wonderful Spring weather on our patio.

I have celiac disease so going out can be hard when you need to eat gluten free but Larkin's is wonderful about catering to my needs. They have a huge selection of gluten free food and even if they don't the chef will make something. I recently dined at Larkins for brunch and the chef came out to let me know he would make me gluten free waffles, potatoes, etc. The food is wonderful, the staff is fantastic...
