Order special of night, Prime rib. Requested extra 4 oz and medium rare. Served medium+ and was very tough. Not worth the money.

Great evening with outstanding service. My wife had the crab cakes and I had prime rib. Both were delicious, though the prime rib was a bit chewier than I expected. We also shared some onion rings that were the best we've ever had.

The food is always outstanding at this and all Rick Erwin's restaurants. The bar tables were a little close and crowded, but we felt safe and spread out in the main dining area. Thank you for ensuring the staff wear masks. (We canceled another reservation in Greer when hearing that they did NOT require masks for waitstaff. That's negligent and currently against state mandates. Such establishments won't gain our business.)

Food was excellent and the prices were fair. All in all had a great experience. Waitress was excellent, however spread over too many tables. Shouldn't have to try to get the wait staff's attention at an upscale restaurant when you need service.

Bar dinner service not very attentive. A couple appearing to be "regulars" received priority to the point of being obvious. Seemed understaffed. Could have used another tender. Comped my beverage.

Rick Erwin’s Eastside is not only one of the best restaurants in Greenville, it is one of the best restaurants anywhere. The experience embodies the warm, yet sophisticated charm of our beautiful city. Christina, our server, was (as always) extraordinary. She anticipated and met our every need. The meal was delicious, as Christina alerted the chef to my vegan preference prior to our arrival, so I was Wow’d with a fabulous vegan dinner. I do not usually leave a review but this fabulous experience warrants a positive review.

Overall everything was great. Only issue was being seated at 8:30 for an 8:00 reservation. Credit to staff for providing 2 complimentary apps. Definitely would go again.

My wife and I didn't want to go all the way to downtown Greenville for a nice anniversary dinner, so we decided to try Rick Erwin's Eastside. It was a good decision. The service and food were excellent. The menu was a bit different from the other Rick Erwin restaurants, but they had a bit of everything.

The only thing I wasn't happy with was my seat. The air conditioning blew directly on my back and neck the entire time we were there. I didn't bring it up, so I don't fault them for it. Next time I'll be sure to take a jacket just in case.

Our first time at any Rick Erwin’s. The service was good and over all experience was also good. My wife had the prime rib, and I had the Delmonico w/lobster tail.
She crab soup was the show stopper for us both! Prime Rib was great, though my Delmonico was ok and would not order again. This really needs improvement to make it the steak it should be. The quality is good, but the preparation is missing something that complements the dry age cut. Course Sea Salt, a steak butter, wood fire element something.
Over all, we’ll be back.

We have always loved Rick Erwin’s downtown, the Eastside, and Clemson locations.
However, this latest experience at the Eastside was not up to par.
I ordered my filet to be cooked medium, Oscar style. My filet was more rare, so it was undercooked and the crabmeat and asparagus while a good quality, had little flavor and the accompanying bearnaise sauce was cold. I asked our server to reheat the sauce and it returned still cool. I took the leftovers for another day, when I slowly grilled the steak to a medium temp, and seasoned the crabmeat and asparagus.
The side of cheesy potatoes were very good.
Unfortunately, the leftovers were much better than the original dinner!
My friend wasn’t happy with his salmon entree, as it was also not seasoned well, and was served cool, but was happily surprised with the blowfish appetizer.
We hope this was a fluke evening, because we love all of these restaurants!

It was our first experience dining at Rick Erwin’s and we were celebrating our anniversary. Christina was our server and we will ask for her again. Zach brought us complementary champagne and Christina brought us complimentary peach cobbler with ice cream. Our meal was very good, and everything was cooked just perfectly. We’ll be back!
