Our server, Victoria, was fantastic. She really knew the menu and great description of the specials. She knew we were on a schedule because of a show at Peace Center, so she maintained a great dinner pace. When there was an issue with a dish, she immediately brought over her manager, Kimberly who resolved the situation to our complete satisfaction. Kudu's to them both.

Food as good as great restaurants in New York. The seafood is very fresh. I grew up eating fresh fish in Florida and can tell when fish is not fresh!

A bit too noisy for fine dining. Could hear the group across the room better than my wife. Excellent smoked salmon appetizer, but the swordfish, while fresh and not over cooked was rather bland.

I would have rated it higher until a party of about 40 energetic boisterous people were seated next to us. 3 people having a pleasant evening vs 40 people celebrating... Oh well, bad timing for us. Food was good. Server was excellent.

My husband was a bit skeptical of this restaurant because it is attached to a hotel. But we have been to another of Rick Erwin’s restaurants and it was very good, so we thought we’d give it a try-and you can’t beat the location!! We had a great experience here. Our server was very knowledgeable and attentive. We came after a matinee performance at the Peace Center. It is right across the street. We ordered the special:a seafood trio of lobster tail, crab cake and seared scallops. I shared one with my daughter and it was plenty of food. We also got the greens salad and it was very tasty. The large is enough to share. My husband ordered the same thing,as it sounded too good to pass on! Everything was cooked perfectly. The crab cake was one of the best I’ve had and the scallops were superb. The lobster tail was tender and served with a remoulade sauce. Yummy!! Would definitely go back!

This was my 5th or 6th visit to your restaurant, so obviously, I'm a fan! Admittedly, it has been a while since my last visit, so maybe this visit was just a fluke. In the past, we ordered omelettes from the kitchen, we heard there was now an omelette station, so looked forward to that. Additionally, I am now living a low carb life style, so to be looking forward to the omelette station, only to find out the station was out of commission during our visit, it was very disappointing.
A couple of other things...
We were seated in the center 1/2 booth, 1/2 table area and could see a layer of dust on the area in the center, behind the booth seating, so just a heads up there.
And, lastly, I wanted to close with a comment on the service. As always, it was excellent!
Please understand these things will not stop me from coming in, I will return, and as long as it was just a fluke, I'll be back again and again.

This is our second time to eat here, and both meals have been great. The facility is nice, and the seating is comfortable, it never got loud. The service is very professional, and they went out of their way to make sure it felt like a special occasion for us. The food is very good, with many of the ingredients being sourced locally and all of the seafood being done very well. Extensive wine list. You get what you pay for.

We were seated in a small back room, only 5 tables, lovely and quite. The staff was friendly but the overall service was very slow. Reservations were for 6pm, told the waitress we were seeing the show at 8pm. Left restaurant at 7:50.
The food was under seasoned, even the bread lacked flavor. Borrowed a salt shaker for neighboring table to use on bread, made a big taste difference.
Have eater at restaurant a few times, for the price the food’s seasoning needs to be kicked up.
Would recommend with comments

Although the food was quite good, the staff appeared to be engaged in some form of “speed dining.” Rather than facilitating a relaxed meal, the wait staff rushed the courses such that a three-course meal was pushed in less than an hour. Perhaps this is untrained staff; regardless, it represented extremely poor service. Would not return.

I travel the U.S., Pueto Rico, U.S. Virgin Isles on a regular basis. A food and wine enthusiast, this was one of the best seafood meals I have had this year, and I have dined on seafood in Snn Francisco, Baltimore, Florida, Maine, SC, NC, and New England.

Service was exceptional.

Kudos Rick Erwin, nice to know someone gets it.

If you want a great meal and you’re not afraid of cost, this is the best for seafood. The lobster is delicious. This is our first choice of restaurants in the Greenville area.

Went for Sunday brunch buffet for my birthday. Service was excellent. I received a complimentary glass of champagne for my birthday which was very nice. The carving station was great but the buffet hot dishes were cold. If you are a meat eater the prime rib looked amazing and the ham was very tasty.
The dessert bar was mediocre. The strawberry cobbler was runny and tasteless. All in all I would have a hard time returning and spending $24 again for the buffet. Just a personal choice.

As soon as I sat down and the waiter swapped the white napkin for a black one (I was wearing black) I knew we were going to have a special experience - and we weren't disappointed. The quiet luxury, professional and knowledgeable service, and of course most important, excellent food made this a restaurant that we can't wait to go back to. After living in NY for 30 yrs, we moved to Charlotte and were visiting Greenville for a weekend with friends. Great town and now we've found the best restaurant.

It kills me to write this review, because we've always loved Rick Erwin's Nantucket Grille, and have thought of it as our go-to place for special occasions. But last night really stunned us. The food as usual was still very good, but the service was harried and erratic, and we had to ask for everything--cocktail menu, butter, dessert menu. Once our waiter walked away while I was in the middle of a question. It was a busy night, but not insane, but we definitely felt untaken care of. We mentioned this to our server, and he got the manager, and the manager apologized and said he would see what he could do. Our first round of drinks were comped. Not really enough of an apology to bring us back. From now on it's Larkin's or Gianni's.
