We went to Larkin's to celebrate our anniversary. Everything from the greeting we received from the hostess, to the atmosphere, to the service was excellent. I had the Chilean Sea Bass and my husband had the Bone-In Filet. Both were cooked to perfection! Rick, the manager, went out of his way to acknowledge our anniversary, making us feel like VIP. Thank you Larkin's for our great experience!

“Neat place, not pretentious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2008

My wife and I had dinner there November 1st, and we were pleasantly surprized with the experience. The food was great, and the menu was very extensive and had a lot of "down home" kind of food. The prices were what you'd expect downtown, but we liked the graciousness of the staff compared to some other restaurants we've been to downtown. The filet was great, and they have a nice wine list also.

“Great Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2008

We had dinner here on Fri night of Labor Day weekend. We asked to be seated on the outdoor patio and the service was very good. We had the tenderloin bites with Aoili for an appetizer and it was wonderul. We also had a house salad, sea bass and gourmet macaroni & cheese for a side dish. The view was great and the food was very good.
