    The food was excellent! My halibut and scallops were absolutely perfect. My husband had the ribeye which he claims as amazing with blue cheese. Our server, Serenity, was attentive and jovial. Wait staff attentive but not overly so. The owner stopped to see how our evening was and received graciously our praise. “It was the best service we’ve experienced since the pandemic.” We’d definitely return.

    We did a quick weekend in Greenville. Enjoyed Soby's, Hall's, and RE's for our nights out. RE's, by FAR, was at the top. The quality and flavors of the food was top notch. Steaks were perfectly prepared and juicy. Beet salad and sprouts side were delish. Forced ourselves to finish dessert, and it was worth every bite. Serenity was our server, and her service was on point. Definitely will return when in GVL.

    My steak was wonderful and I recommend getting the truffle peppercorn sauce. The butter cake was probably one of the best desserts I have ever eaten.

    First time visitor. We were really impressed by the experience. Ordered Manhattans from the bar. These were made in the classic style and on point. Wedge salad was excellent and the lettuce was crisp and fresh. Soft shell crab appetizer was possibly the highlight of the meal. Our server felt that our entrees were running slow so he surprised us with a great shrimp cocktail, on the house, plus another Manhattan. I considered this a pro move, because we never thought of complaining, but it also illustrates the hi standard that Rick Erwin's holds themselves to. Entrees were crab cakes and a lobster/sausage spicy linguine. Both were excellent as well. Our server, Aryton, was as professional of a host as you will find in any restaurant. Great job and we will definitely make this a must stop dining spot when we return to Greenville. Thank you!

    We have been to Rick Erwin’s before, and it is a great spot because you know what you get. I would say that there are likely too many servers that check on you, and the food is ok, but not great. Our steaks were undercooked, then after we sent them back they were overcooked. In the end, I would say this is a good place to try, but I would opt for better steakhouse options in Greenville.

He really makes our dining experiences memorable and fulfilling. The bar service is spot-on, our meals are fabulous, and the desserts are wonderful. We feel blessed to have a venue of this caliber in the downtown Greenville area. We look forward to our next visit.

    Great service and an overall wonderful experience! Simone greeted us at the door and took care of us from the first step in the restaurant and our server Johnny was amazing, even helping us select a bottle of wine to compliment our meal. We had phenomenal service, the food was impeccable and finished with fabulous key lime pie for dessert. We will definitely be back next time we are in Greenville! Having Rick himself stop by to ask us about our dining experience put this meal over the edge into the truly “great” category.

    It was my wife’s birthday dinner, we sat at the bar awaiting our table…that’s when the AWSOMENESS began. The bartender was amazing and she insisted on my wife being wowed by her drink. Then we went to our table and got the most amazing personal service from Kevin, our waiter. The food was prepared to perfection for me, but my wife wasn’t pleased with one of her dishes. Kevin took it upon himself, after asking her what would make the dish better, to get the kitchen to remake the dish to her liking!! We were floored!! Rick Erwin’s West End Grill is now at the top of our list of phenomenal restaurants!!

    I have eaten at many of the best steak houses in the U.S., and our night out at Rick Erwin's absolutely tops them all. The menu options were amazing (had the dry aged ribeye with a side of sausage Manicotti) and the food quality was literally the best I've had anywhere. Our waiter - Michael - turned an extraordinary meal into a - truly - extraordinary EVENT. Plus the fact that they have free valet parking makes it super convenient and super special. Ambience was superb, and the location in Greenville is super-cool as well.

    Excellent from being greeted at front door right to getting the check and leaving. Fantastic food - calamari starter was really good, steak with Fois gras and crab cake - perfectly cooked, scallops wonderful. Zach and the team did a great job of keeping us fed and watered throughout the meal. This is a top-notch restaurant, price to match, but worth the expense.

    Colin was an excellent server, and the food was phenomenal. We went to celebrate my sig others’ birthday and they took care of us so well! We were greeted with a birthday card, and we ended up splitting the steak trio and two sides. The steak trio was phenomenal, and the lobster mac and cheese was to DIE FOR. Definitely get the bread pudding or sherbet for dessert, both were amazing and well worth it! Would absolutely come here again, especially to celebrate a milestone, birthday, etc!

    We can’t recommend Rick Erwin’s West End Grille, MORE. From start to finish, it was absolutely wonderful. The food was exceptional in taste and portion. I’ll emphasis portion! What really made our experience amazing was our waiter, Johnny. He greeted, he cared, and at the end, it felt like he was a friend. Extremely professional and friendly. Not to mention, Rick Erwin, himself, came to greet us. I think that speaks volumes of the experience and culture they cultivate. 5 stars. 10/10 recommend. A great way to celebrate my birthday.
