We celebrated our three year anniversary last night, and going to Rick Erwin’s West End Grille was an amazing decision! They offered us complimentary champagne to celebrate, and though my SO doesn’t drink, they came out with flutes of lemonade to celebrate. It was very thoughtful. Our dinner was excellent, and he couldn’t stop raving about the Nola BBQ shrimp that he had with his steak. Our server, Ryan, recommended us the banana bread pudding and butter cake with peach vanilla ice cream, and it was so delicious! All of the people on staff were welcoming and nice. We are already planning to go back for both of our birthdays coming up as well. Definitely recommend!

I made reservations for my daughter's 20th birthday. When we arrived we were seated immediately and on the table was a beautiful birthday card that was signed by each of the staff members. As always our entrees were amazingly delicious and our service was impeccable! From the appetizers to the desserts everything was outstanding!!

This was our first time using indoor seating since the pandemic started, and we felt perfectly safe. Rather than blocking off tables, Rick Erwin has actually removed them for the floor, so you have a very elegant and spacious dining experience. The staff were conscientious in wearing masks. Beyond that, the food was divine. I had the calamari & Chilean Sea Bass that melted in my mouth. I've never tasted it that good. And although I'm not a dessert eater, I did try my husbands banana fosters bread pudding, and I couldn't stop having just one more bite. And it's always a nice touch when Rick Erwin comes around and personally checks to see how your dinner was. It was a wonderful date night for my husband and me.

We went to dinner for my birthday and had a reservation for 6:30 on a Thursday night. Everything was great...very safe COVID precautions were in place. The food was great and the service was good. We felt that our waiter was rushing us along. We had wanted to have a leisurely dinner and enjoy each course but did feel that we were being rushed a little too much. Other than that, we had a great experience!

They didn’t have drink menu’s printed out. Waiter asked us what we would like and we told him we didn’t have drink menus that the hostess said she would get for us. He came back 10 minutes last and asked again what we wanted to drink and we told him we still didn’t have drink menus. Finally the manager came by and gave them to us. This was at least a twenty minute ordeal. My $55 dry aged steak was just that, dry. The steak had no juice, no flavor, tough, and was cooked rare not medium rare. When the waiter asked how our meal was I told him it was disappointing that I would be feeding my dog 75% of my steak given the above reasons. The manager apologized and gave us a piece of key lime pie. I didn’t expect anything drastic to happen on our bill but $200 dinner that was terrible with bad service should constitute more than a piece of pie. I won’t go back and will definitely warn anyone else on my experience

My wife and I chose Rick Erwin's West End because it was our 49th wedding anniversary. We had gone to the Salt Water Cafe last year and it was fantastic, but not open this year because of the China virus. Everyone was especially cautious about the virus protocol and our waiter, Ryan, made the evening a great experience. We were impressed with the creative menu. The blackened Red Fish was on par with any restaurant in Texas or New Orleans and the deserts were creative and delicious.

My wife and I passed by Rick Erwin's on Thursday evening. The specials listed on the board is what pulled us in to eat. After a fantastic experience we decided to go back on Saturday evening. It was another exceptional experience. The staff know the menu, and their recommendations are spot on. The food is unbelievable. Everyone is so attentive to what is going on. I will be making periodic trips back to this area and will always include a stop at Rick Erwin's on my list.

First of all let me say my server Elizabeth was outstanding I couldn’t ask for anyone better. As for the food I had the New York strip, the meat itself was cooked perfectly, the only problem I had with the steak was that the chef salted the heck out of it, almost ruining a great piece of meat. Stop with the excess salt. If I want it I’ll add it. The excess salt does not enhance the flavor. Secondly the bartender needs to learn how to make a whiskey sour, it was terrible.

This was the second time we've eaten at this location. Both times the food was impeccable, but both times the service has been less than stellar. While we will eat at Rick Erwin's again, we will make sure to dine at the Clemson location from now on; the service matches the food quality there. As far as the food went at the Greenville location, the special bacon appetizer with cherry chutney was divine. Our party's entrees were cooked perfectly and were absolutely delicious: filet/NOLA shrimp, bone-in rib eye, and Delmonico rib eye. The au gratin potatoes were the surprise hit of the night. Unfortunately, our server was very slow to get to our table (although the hosts did start us off with drinks so we did not have to wait for beverages). We often had to ask for refills, and one time empty glasses were removed and never replaced with anything else. My husband started his entree with no drink at all since his glass had been removed ten minutes prior and never replaced. We had to flag another waiter down to get a beverage for him. At a normal restaurant, I wouldn't necessarily be bothered by this. However, when we are paying over $100 per person for dinner, a higher level of service is expected.
