We made the reservation for our 18th anniversary. They made us feel special as soon as we walked in the door, and brought champagne as we looked through the menu. We had an outstanding dinner and experience, and will definitely repeat next year.....hopefully sooner!!!

Excellent food and service. The only negative was the loud rock music being played. It didn’t fit the ambiance of the restaurant and was too loud. Rick stopped by our table, introduced himself, and welcomed us. We’ll be back.

The food was excellent. Hospitality and wait staff could not have been nicer. The only negative was the wait time between our salad and entree. There seemed to be some back up in the kitchen. We easily waited an hour. Waitress was very apologetic and did not charge us for our entrees. Hopefully, this was just a bad night for the kitchen. We’ll try again for the food alone!

The service was awesome. The menu has changed some, so I couldn’t get what I was looking forward too. Our filet was over cooked and very dry. Not a good experience.

The Ravioli entree was a disappointment. Very little was eaten.

Creme brûlée desert was runny.

Having dined at other Rick Erwin establishments, we had high hopes. Service was very good, our server Bill was very helpful and friendly. Recommended to us a great wine, which we enjoyed. I had the brie appetizer special which was quite excellent and my wife had the Caesars salad, which was ok. Bread was really good also. Then we hit the main courses of medium rare bison steak and a medium filet minion. My wife had the quote of the evening, it was liked they cooked the life out of it. Was not medium, but like charbroiled on the outside, somehow still pink on the inside but very dry. My bison was of similar fashion. I hate to say it, but if cooking steak is a problem, we don't have much hope for other courses. Bill was very sympathetic and comp'd us the bison. We probably won't be back for a while.

Rick Erwin’s Eastside never disappoints us! We treat ourselves once every other month to a date night here and often invite friends to join us. Last night was no different. We started with the beef carpaccio and an oyster dish for the table. Then, I had the 3 course meal of a green salad, petite filet with grilled asparagus and mashed potatoes. Dessert was delicious key lime pie. Everyone enjoyed their meal to the last bite. We will definitely return.

We decided to dine at Rick Erwin’s Eastside restaurant. The location is deceiving at first and then pleasantly surprised upon entering the establishment.

We were promptly greeted and seated within a few minutes.
The interior resembles a traditional upscale restaurant with white table cloths, servers in white jackets and an inviting atmosphere.

The servers are clearly a five star rating. Knowledgeable, appropriately friendly, attention to service detail at the table.

The menu has a broad spectrum of appetizers, soup & salads and entrees. Clearly the beef selections were superb. Choice & aged varieties of beef. In addition, the seafood, lamb & chicken entrees were to be envied.

As a first time RE Eastside diner, we wanted to sample the appetizers. The fresh oysters are a “keeper” and the lightly flash fried calamari was enjoyable. We sampled the She Crab soup and wedge salad. Both were enjoyed.
We ordered the filet mignon and the “catch of the day” which was grilled halibut. Both entrees were prepared to perfection. In addition, they offer side dishes and we had the broccolini. Again , delicious and well prepared by the kitchen team.

They have a few deserts which we did not sample.

The level of Rick Erwin’s service, staff & food prep was well above average and consistent with his franchise. We will return.

A huge thank you to the staff for graciously accommodating a group of 8 for a business meeting with dinner following. Everyone was very accommodating to our need to be in a private area and the extended amount of time we spent there. Awesome experience!

A great consistent steak option that's close to home! We enjoy the proximity without having to drive to downtown Greenville. The steaks are well flavored and cooked perfectly to temperature. The twice baked is a great side to share.

The service and staff are always exceptional at Rick Erwin’s locations. The food was cooked really well and if anything is off they always find a suitable resolution. It was my husband birthday dinner. We will continue our business here as I can guarantee welcomed smiles and service.

While Greenville has numerous restaurants, our "go-to" is always a Rick Erwin's restaurant, in particular Rick Erwin's Eastside! Great service, incredible food, and excellent atmosphere are a built-in part of the experience! You can count on a first-rate evening every time!
