It was our 36th Anniversary and the ambiance, food and service were excellent. We have dined at every upscale steakhouse in Greenville and Eastside matched or exceeded all of them.

We had not been to an upscale restaurant since before the pandemic which meant that two wedding anniversaries had passed without celebrating; events that were generally done at a Rick Erwin’s restaurant. Last evening exceeded our expectations. The food, wine, and ambiance were wonderful but the interaction with the perfect staff made it memorable. There was expertise and friendliness and the sense that they truly wanted our experience to be special. It was!

Everything was excellent, except the main course, we had the fish of today, halibut,
.It had very little taste,( I have halibut many times and it was excellent), like it cooked with nothing. and the portion was so small., but had a lot vegetables to cover up small portion of halibut .
The service was super outstanding.

This was our first special inside dinning experience with friends post Covid. Our waitress Christina was exceptional as always! I had the fish special which was delicious along with salad and spring peas. Having Rick stop by our table is always a special treat. Your restaurant is always our first choice for fine dining experience. We are never disappointed! Thanks.

Rick Erwin’s is simply the benchmark for for a fine dining experience. Pick any of his locations, and they all excel. Rick also makes a habit of personally saying hello to every table at each restaurant. There really is no consistent equal, Rick Erwin restaurants are EXCEPTIONAL.

Waitress was excellent, food was great. They were understaffed and we waited too long for appetizers and were halfway through the meal before they delivered the wine. And again I repeat that the waitress was excellent and doing everything she could to meet our needs. She was just having to cover too many tables. Kitchen was slow in getting food out.

After ordering we waited 90 minutes for our entrees to arrive. They arrived lukewarm. Besides not being hot, the 4 oz filet was very heavily salted, the lobster tail was mushy. A mushy lukewarm lobster tail isn't very appetizing. The mashed potatoes looked they sat in a pan uncovered for a long time and, along with the asparagus, came out at room temperature. Both went uneaten. For appetizers, the calamari was average at best.

We didn't mentioned anything about the low quality of the food to the waiter until we had paid the bill. He knew the kitchen crew was a train wreck and did well communicating with us while we waited. The wait was the same for every table. We knew it was a tough night to be a server at this restaurant. His professionalism and communication made the visit tolerable.

They recognize birthdays and special occasions with a huge sparkler which added to a pleasant atmosphere during the long wait.

All things considered, Rick Erwin's Eastside was, unfortunately, a very big disappointment.

Food, as always, was outstanding. However, we waited 1 hr and 45 minutes to get our meal after ordering. While our server apologized numerous times, I believe that this wait time was much too long for a Rick Erwin’s restaurant.

Rick Erwin’s restaurants are our go-to spots when we finally get a date night. With our family make up date nights are at a premium and Rick Erwin’s Always is the perfect place for Service, Professionalism combined with personality and care for their customers.

On this night at Eastside, from the Perfect Greeting when we arrived until we left, we were taken care of by a World Class Dining Support Team. They were knowledgeable, friendly, courteous. They were right on time when we needed to order or something else yet gave us space to enjoy our meals as well. The food was, Off the Hook fantastic.

Thank you Rick! You and your team provided us within another Perfect date night.

The food was excellent and the waiter was attentive and helpful. Unfortunately, the kitchen was slow. We were seated at 5:40 and our entree didn’t arrive until 6:55 (weren’t we supposed to be finishing up around then?). The long delay between salad and entree did detract from the overall experience.

I was 100% satisfied with Rick Irwin’s Eastside.

However I am not satisfied with the way Open Table reservations are being seated. This is the second time I have used Open Table within the last two months and the seating we were given was absolutely horrible. The first time at City Range we were seated in the banquet room. There were 4 of us being seated in the midst of big groups that were very load and annoying.

At Rick Irwin’s we were seated right in front of the kitchen and it’s swinging doors.

We did get our seats changed both times. However, I don’t believe I should have to request a table change. If this is the way restaurants treat guests using Open Table then I will no longer be using your app and book direct with the restaurant.

Thomas was our Server and he was outstanding. We always ask for Christina but she was off, Thomas never missed a beat! The food was great as always, and the entire staff were all friendly, especially Sabastian, what a nice gentlemen! My only complaint is they no longer carry Monkey 47 Gin!
