Larkin's is a local favorite, esp. lunch w/ colleagues, etc. Has a band on the outside sometimes on weekend nights in warm, pretty weather. Has a Sunday brunch which is made to your specification. Waiters and waitresses have been known to occasionally be young and inexperienced, but get the job done.......Great burgers along with other bigger entrees.

We visited Larkin's on a Sunday evening at dinner time. Other than waiting for someone to greet us - about three minutes, we were seated immediately. Our waiter greeted us promptly and was quick to return with our drink orders. The restaurant was virtually empty and the tables immediately around us were serviced by other wait staff.

It's right off I-26 folks, so worth getting off, despite the screwy traffic circle. We have family in Columbus, so it's a regular spot for our family. The menu is fairly straightforward but diverse, in that there is something here for everyone. Try the Cuban, or the salads, or the chicken wraps or....oh heck, just try anything. And no matter...

The title tells the story. The She Crab soup is awesome, forget the cup go for the bowl or two!!! Also, the reuben sandwich was well prepared, great flavor and plentiful. Our server Crystal was knowledgable, personable and efficient. The restaurant is just off Interstate 26, easy to find.

Larkins is just ok and over priced. If you need a "nicer" place to eat in town for an occasion or something it will do but It's y least favorite place in town, well except the takeout Chinese place...

Usually come here for a burger fix so we can find a gluten free bun. Food is always good and a little pricey but that is bearable. Just the food is usually slow in coming and the gal seating you must not enjoy her job and is slow as a snail.

From sugar added to their French onion soup, to sandwiches that don't stay together, the food is poor, similar to Larkins on Lake Lure. It is the only restaurant in town, other than the 'greasy spoon' Calverts and the below average Brick (Italian).

This middle of the road restaurant is a good family choice. It offers a varied menu and serves groups. I found the service to be good, and the food average. My sandwich was fresh but not particularly tasty.

Whenever you are in Columbus area make sure to have dinner at Larkin's. The food is excellent - Great service from the bar and a big food menu. Comfortable interior. Excellent parking. Wait staff was very nice...friendly and the right amount of talkative.
