We had a 7:15 reservation and didn't get our table until 7:40. We waited in the bar and the bar tender was great as were the drinks he prepared. Our server was very nice, but seemed inexperienced. They served complimentary bread crisps but when we finished them, they took our plates away and then they served a complimentary bread loaf that was delicious. The server needed a crumb scraper as one of his standard tools to clear bread crumbs off the table. The wine list was good. We chose the Pappardelle & Meatballs and a grilled salmon on mushroom risotto. Everything about the two meals was great except the salmon was overcooked. Although this is not a five-star rating, I would enjoy eating at Rick's West End again in the future.

Great ambiance. Great lighting. Food was excellent. Crabcakes taste like my grandmother’s. Being from the sea islands, I am very particular about my crabcakes yours did not disappoint.

Server was great, but the service was fairly slow because the kitchen was behind. And after all that, both the steak and tuna were over cooked. We ordered medium and medium rare, and they came out medium well and medium. Their market prices are ridiculous, so always ask! $14 for a side of asparagus? Seriously? No thanks, I’ll take the $9 salad instead. Overall, we enjoyed it but probably wouldn’t return.

Was a great spot for our dinner date. Server(Can't remember his name, but he was a grad student at Bob Jones) was attentive and informative. Food was fantastic, and the butter cake was even better.

Second time to Rick Erwins and it was just as great as before.

I was prepared to have a just par meal since we were out on a very busy day (Valentine’s day) . But it turns out it was just as memorable as my first experience.
This time, I ordered the surf and turf with the crab cake. The Filet Mignon was juicy, but not dripping. It was full of flavor and I almost didn’t want to eat the rest of my meal. The crab cake was surprisingly fresh tasting. It was almost as delicious as the steak. The sides were also almost just as good as the main course.
The one and only disappointment was the drinks we ordered from the bar. It wasn’t necessary a bad experience, but it wasn’t on the same level as our meal.
With that all being said, we had an amazing time and Rick Erwin’s is now my new favorite restaurant. I look forward to coming back soon.

Valentine’s Day dinner. Very enjoyable. Social distancing between tables should have been more than it was. As a nurse, I am conscious about that.

I scheduled reservations for the day before Valentine’s Day at Eric Erwins. When we were show to our table it took around 15-20 minutes before our waiter stopped to see us. The table next to us received drinks, salads and appetizers as we sat and waited. When he finally arrived, there was no introduction, just a “What can I get for you?” We had to ask about specials, only to be told it was a crab stuffed shrimp, no details at all were provided. The waiter’s service did not get better.

With that said, the front house manager saw that we were being ignored and did his best to get use out drinks and to see to our orders. Our server was new and was brought up to help with the Valentine’s Day rush, still not a good excuse but somewhat understandable.

The food was magnificent. The drinks superb. The creamed spinach was probably the best I’ve ever had and the Delmonico was in the top two steaks in my life.

My Fiancée and I tried Rick Erwin’s for the first time. While we were expecting an upscale dining experience with delicious food and great service, I must say they actually exceeded my expectations. The service was fantastic and professional, the food was absolutely delicious, the ambience was very nice and extremely comfortable. I would give it five stars and we dine at many upscale restaurants both in Greenville and around the country. We enjoyed it so much we booked again in two weeks and are looking forward to another amazing experience. I would most definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family.

Food was outstanding! Took our son for his Birthday and he loved every single bite. Once he tasted the Lobster Mashed Potatoes, he called dibs and saved them for himself.

My wife and I dined here for her birthday this week. We had an excellent time. The service was excellent by the entire staff. Justin, our waiter was top notch. We thoroughly enjoyed the Covid-19 procedures they followed as well. Everyone on the staff wore masks. Excellent food, experience, and ambiance.

Very nice restaurant with excellent service and no issues with me bringing in my own bottle of wine.
The only menu item that was not up to par in my opinion was the special appetizer of bacon, it was very fatty and cold otherwise everything else we ordered was very good.

I ordered my my strip medium. It was served between rare and medium rare. By the time it was corrected I had already filled up eating the side dishes to prevent them from getting cold. Ended up taking 3/4 of steak home.

Visited during Greenville restaurant week. I opted for the surf and turf which was delicious. My steak was cooked just the way I liked it. Cocktails were just ok in my opinion, only disappointing part of the evening. Our waitress Elizabeth was AMAZING!
