Diner Reviews
  • "The food was amazing. From Chilean Sea Bass and Crab Cakes to Filet Mignon and Pork Chops, everything we tried was perfect. Our waiter provided a fantastic evening. He was polite and conversational. I would recommend the Seafood Bisque. It's an excellent way to start out the evening. Be sure to ask what sorbet flavors they have for dessert. The peach was highly recommended by those who ordered it."

  • "We arrived early and were especially pleased with the music, appearance of the dining room, our waiter and most importantly, the food. Very nice restaurant for a special occasion or when you just want to be a little bit more "upscale"."

  • "Wonderful menu, nice ambience. Had the Dry aged NY Strip that was tasty but was over cooked. I ordered medium rare but it came out medium to medium well"

  • "What a great dining experience! The staff was amazing and the food, oh the food!! I had the Chilean Sea Bass and I know it was THE best I ever had!! The steak was also wonderful as I had the surf and turf. YUM"

  • "Restaurant was beautiful. Young valets standing nearby didn't move to open the door for us (two women), and the hostesses were a bit vapid, but everything else was wonderful. Our waitress was great, her big personality was a definite plus. They actually encourage substitutions, and were totally fine when we asked to cancel one dish and replace it with another well after ordering. The Prosecco was ice cold, the Mac and Cheese delicious and the Filet perfect. The Oysters Rockefeller weren't "authentic" (I grew up outside of New Orleans) - mostly a lot of creamed spinach and yellow cheese - but hey, they were delicious, so who cares? No room for dessert. Will definitely go back."

  • "My wife and I love this place, it is our favorite restaurant. Normally we will go on the weekend (Fri-Sat), but this week we went on a Tuesday night. The staff was great as usual. What was lacking for us was the food, which was a shocker. My steak was not near as good (higher fat content then normal) and the sweet potatoes were either over cooked or honestly looked like left overs from previous days. Many dark spots and streaks in the potatoes, and tasted the same. Creamed spinach was very runny as well. Again, we love this place....our favorite restaurant, but tonight they were just average and did not excite me to return (though I will once memory fades)."

  • "Being my first time at Rick Erwin's I was not sure what to expect except for all the comment from former patrons. All that I talked to gave a great review and every one was talking about what they ate and how great the foods was. Words can not describe it, this is a must go and experience for your self."

  • "Always a pleasure to dine here; excellent food and attentive professional service. The other night included a brief personal greeting/thank you from the well attired Rick Erwin--a nice touch"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "All the servers around us were amazing... ours did the bare minimum... for 2 people to have a $175 bill, would have been nice to have the service we saw others receive. It wouldn't deter me from returning, but next time, I will ask for a different server."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "For a special night this is the place to be. I found the environment perfect, the staff more than friendly and accommodating, and the food over the top. The wine list was complete and the waiter more than showed that he was able to help us with our selection. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a special evening on the town."

  • "Couldn't have choose a better place to spend our 9th anniversary. The food and service was awesome. Would tell any and everyone about our experience. The food is a little pricy, but once you start enjoying the taste, you forget the prices. I think it is also worth to mention that our food came out a little early, waiter was there at the same time and asked that the food be taken back till we were ready. Little thing to most, but meant a lot to us at the time. Great place to go. Can't wait to go back and try the steak..."

  • "Our Hendricks up martinis arrived cold with ice crystals and cucumber garnish. Perfect. Our waiter was a professional: friendly, knew the menu and wine list, efficient, didn't hover yet showed up when something needed to be done. We had the Tuscan bean soup and seafood bisque to start and they were good however the bisque was a little salty. Entrees were the veal shank and the surf and turf. We liked the variety of preparation options for the beef. Portions were large and delicious but we couldn't finish the side dishes. I had the 7oz surf and turf option but the 4oz. option would have been enough. We had an excellent, reasonably priced Barolo wine with dinner. Lastly, Mr Erwin stopped by our table briefly. A nice touch. "
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "Rick Erwin's is our favorite place when we want to dine out at a special place, even if it's not for a special occasion. The filet and lobster combo is absolutely delightful. We have been to most of the fine dining restaurants in the Upstate and have not found a better steak anywhere!! The service was spot on and the price was reasonable for what we ordered."

  • "We went there before going to the theater at the Peace Center. Our waitress made sure we had plenty of time to make the show. Food was great. We've been many times and it never disappoints"

  • "For our 35th anniversary, we ate at Rick's before seeing Phantom. At dinner, I planned to give my wife a new engagement diamond, which had been lost years ago, and a restored ring given to her by her father when she was 16. I was especially hoping for a romantic evening. The 16oz. Dry Aged Kansas City Strip was tender and saturated with flavor. The Surf and Turf was delicious with plenty of real crab meat, rather than filler. For dessert, the Kahlua Chocolate Torte and Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee were superb. What topped off the evening, however, was how Rick’s helped us celebrate. Dessert was on the house, along w/cookies saying, “Happy Anniversary.” The extra touch of an anniversary card signed by all the staff made it even more special. "

  • "The server was pretty good. Friendly, helpful. I ordered a near $50 Salmon dish that came out well undercooked. Returned it and my wife was done with her dish by the time my re-fire was brought back to me. No visit from management to see how the re-fire dish was. No compensation of any type for having to sit and watch my wife eat while waiting (and vice-versa for her after she was done and my plate returned). Got the overall feeling that the customer is taken for granted. "
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Really enjoyed the food. We had fried green tomatoes to start. They were the best I've ever had. Next we had the seafood bisque and gourmet greens. Main entrees were the Company Crab Cake and the Chicken Gorgonzola. Everything was excellent. To finish, we had the Chocolate Kahlua Torte. It was divine. I enjoyed the ambience--dark paneled walls and Sinatra playing. The table set-up nor the noise level were conducive to a romantic outing. It was our 6th anniversary. Our server was professional but lacked personality. In fact, she didn't seem happy to be there. I don't remember her greeting us or introducing herself but I could've missed it as I had problems hearing her. Overall we enjoyed it but may choose other restaurants in the future "

  • "We've visited Rick Erwin's many times and it's always top notch. Our waiter and the service was excellent this evening. He made an excellent wine suggestion, and kept our glasses topped off the entire time. We mentioned that we were going to see Phantom of the Opera, and he was very knowledgeable about theater/opera. It's always nice when something unexpected happens and adds to your evening. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Perfect for our pre-theatre dinner. Everything was perfectly timed from delivery of our bottle of wine to delivery of our bill. Our steak and trout were excellent and the Chocolate Khalua Torte just melted in your mouth. We are new to the area but we will definitely be back. "
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Rick Erwin's West End Grille has been one of our favorites in Greenville. My wife ordered the spinach salad and the encrusted grouper. The spinach salad contained the stems and made it hard to eat. The grouper was well cooked, but bland and lacked any "zip". I had the sesame tuna, which was outstanding in preparation and taste."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Simply the best in Greenville for all occasions. The service, food and ambiance are consistently outstanding, which makes dining there a special treat."
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "While the service was very well done, the food was average for the price. I was not impressed with their theater menu salad or dessert, the steak was under seasoned and the wine list was much more than the restaurant standard 200-300% mark up for wine. They were closer to 400% for many wines? It was a nice touch that Mr. Erwin himself come around to say hello to guests though. That rarely happens anymore. "

  • "We chose Rick Erwin's because our daughter had given us a gift card. We had not been there before, but knew it was a restaurant where we wanted to dine. We made an early reservation because we had tickets to the theater. How nice that the restaurant has a theater dinner menu with a nice choice of limited selections, making the choice relatively easy. You really couldn't go wrong. I had the seafood bisque, light and very flavorful; the surf and turf, a tasty 4-oz. filet and a crabcake, full of crabmeat; and a piece of mouth-watering, melt in your mouth key lime pie. The wait staff was attentive without rushing us. We'll be back!"
