We really enjoyed dinner here. We had a reservation late on Saturday night, and it worked out well because the beginning of our dinner was a little crowded and noisy, but by the end a lot of people had cleared out and the pace was much more relaxed. The wine list was outstanding. The food was excellent. We would highly... More

Steak was suggested by waiter, and I could do better on my grill. It was cold out and we sat outside. They moved the heat from us for some other couple, they could have just lit another one? Not worth the price, dont mind paying for a good place, but not this again.

Nestled near the Reedy River and a short walk from Fall River Park and shopping in Greenville's West End, Larkin's is one of the top go-to restaurants in Greenville. Can't go wrong with steaks or seafood. Very nice informal ambiance, though also popular for dress-up occasions.

Larkins is amazing, but a little pricey. We have been several times. It is the perfect place to celebrate special occasions. My wife loves it.

We arrived at 4:45 before a 6:30 performance at the Peace Center. The hostess advised that we would have to wait until 5 for the full menu to be available. We were seated on the patio with a great view. Our server immediately asked if we were going to the performance and assured us that we had ample time to... More

The good - excellent service, my steak was great. The not so good - my wifes steak and the steaks the couple had next to us were all under cooked. If you're going here for the steakhouse experience make sure you sit inside. It's like a completely different restaurant compared to the outdoor seating. Where we were seated.

We would love to have you back to give you the 5-Star experience we know we can deliver. You are correct that inside and outside seating offer different settings. Some enjoy the cozy and intimate setting inside while others prefer the fresh air and lovely views from the patio. More
