Whoever is making the soup, please keep making it! The tortilla soup was amazing. I regretted getting a cup instead of a bowl.

We had a 6:00 reservation as we were going to a concert at the Peace Center at 7:30. Our server asked us immediately if we were seeing a show so she could watch our time. We ordered drinks and when the drinks arrived we immediately placed our order for dinner around 6:10 - we were constantly reassured by our server that we had ample time. 6:45 no dinner. 7:00 the server came out with the manager assuring us that our food was on the way out. 7:20 - no food and we had to leave. They brought a bag of food - all seafood - to the door and said we could take it with us. Who wants to take fish to a concert and who wants cold fish afterwards. We were charged full price for 4 meals we never received with no apology. Please share this with other customers at this restaurant in Greenville sc

Our waiter Steve was excellent. Food was amazing! Service terrific! I have celiac and they were very accommodating to my dietary needs. One of the best meals out I’ve had in a very long time and I didn’t get sick from being glutenized!

Our meal was absolutely phenomenal. To start, we had the clemson bleu cheese salads which were to die for. They were huge portions and worth the price. We also got bacon wrapped scallops which were delicious even though I’m not a fan of seafood! We got the pork chop with grits and collards, creamed spinach and baked tomatoes, and two filet mignon. Every protein was cooked perfectly and we enjoyed every bite! Our server, Anna, was so professional, polite, and knowledgeable about the menu. Next time I go to Larkin’s, I’ll definitely be asking for Anna as my server again!

We celebrated my birthday here. Our party was driving in from out of town, and the restaurant happily accommodated those that arrived early with a table on the patio for drinks. We were seated promptly at our reservation time. The service was excellent. They even let us bring in our own cake to celebrate! I couldn’t have asked for a better dinner.

We have been to Larkin's on the River twice in the past couple months, and the service and food were excellent both times. The staff is very attentive and friendly, actually taking moment to talk with you and make recommendations. Their deviled eggs and steak skewer appetizers were excellent as was the massive pork chop and Chilean Sea Bass. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, and even when it is full, it is not too loud.

We were there at 6:15 for our dinner, and did not get our food until 7:25...we had to hurry to eat and check out for an 8:00 symphony. Many who came in after us
were served long before us. We were a table of two women. Our server was working for the larger groups. Our table was freezing cold. We won't be back for a long time.

We were moved outside from our reserved table inside due to “out of control” guests at a nearby table.Manager was very professional with reseating us. It was chilly on the patio, food, this night, was not great. We will come again but our experience this time was not up to Larkin’s normal high standard.

I would normally always recommend Larkins but this Sunday, Oct27, I ordered the 6oz filet mignon. It was the driest steak I’ve ever had! 😞 Outback steakhouse and long horn steakhouse have never served me this quality of steak. I’m sad bc I love Larkins... I don’t think I’ll go again. For the amount of money we paid at Larkins it was such a staggering letdown!

Overall, just ok. The truffle fries would be a reason to return. We had the half chicken and filet. Chicken was great, steak was mediocre. Service was nothing special, our water was never refilled. The restaurant was not full, and thankfully not loud. Ladies, be careful in high heels. The floor is VERY slick.

Loved the atmosphere and location. Food was bland and not very flavorful. The steak while a very good cut of meat cooked perfectly had no flavor to it at all. The bacon Mac and cheese was a let down and the Brussels sprouts had a vinegar taste to it. Best part was the she crab soup. Waiter was ok kept disappearing. Didn’t acknowledge our anniversary but did for the table right beside us. We went to Larkin’s instead of Ruth Chris which is were we always go for our anniversary and we’re we will go from now on.

From the location behind the Peace Center in downtown Greenville, to the ambiance, to the service, and the food, Larkins hit all the marks. The only hiccup was that the bar was out of Buffalo Trace.

Overall, great job by the chef and staff!
