There are many good resturants in town, but for the best 5 star experience it has to be Larkin's. Service is excellent, but the food is surpurb. Isn't that what you go to a Resturant for? The aged steaks are Devine, salads are wonderful, and the wine list is exciting. I have dined there on several occasions and have never... More

Dined on two occassions and found that some of the best culinary experiences were from their special feature items. Lunch is very manageable from small to mid-size dishes that satisfy the palate. Dinner was hearty and had a large sekection to choose from. Definitely make a reservation for evening dining.

Larkin's is not a favorite of mine. I believe that there are better choices for fine dining in Greenville. My rating of very good is due mainly to how flawlessly our group of 10 couples and 10 children who were attending a formal event downtown on a recent Friday evening were served. Service was great. My wife had their salmon,... More

Atmosphere, ambience and view - Wow. Service and value - Wow. Food quality and taste - Wow. This was our first visit to Larkins and we were delighted. On a perfect Spring evening, we enjoyed sitting out on the patio. We weren't overly hungry and the appetizers sounded so good, that we decided to go "tapas style" and just have... More

Larkin's is a nice restaurant located on the Reedy River in downtown Greenville. It has a nice atmosphere and seating (I particularly love the intimate booths around the perimeter). This restaurant has an excellent bartender and a nice cocktail and wine list. If you are looking for a steak, this is a great option. Where this restaurant fails is providing... More
