Three of us sat on the patio for an evening meal. My colleagues ordered the Filet and I ate the Tuna appetizer for my entrée. All were excellent. For appetizers we had the Oysters Rockefeller and Bacon wrapped Scallops. I would recommend both. In addition we had excellent asparagus as one side and scalloped potatoes for the other side. The...

The appetizers were very good, but the entrees were uninspired. The shrimp and grits was too heavy, not the usual broth-like sauce, and the shrimp were a little tough.

We stopped here for lunch during Artisphere. William provided us with a lovely outdoor table. The service was wonderful. For our appetizer we enjoyed a delicious heirloom tomato salad. For our entrée we split the portobello mushroom sandwich (no cheese). We were very pleased with the vegan accommodations. We enjoyed views of the stage during our lunch.

Nice restaurant in a lovely location right on the river. Nice covered outside part with good views. Good choice of food and good wine list. Staff were very polite and helpful. The reason I haven't given 5 stars is that there was no vegetarian entree on the menu and all the vegetables were rather overdone. Otherwise very good!

Everything was excellent. Ask for Ed he will take care of you. It was a true dining experience. With over 300 expected guests we never felt rushed. Was asked before every course if we'd like to get it started or if we'd like to relax and maybe have another drink. Food was A+++ Don't leave without trying the She Crab... More

Great spot with amazing views of this innovative city...we sat "outside" on the pAtio, however, shortly after we were seated in the area with both heaters and fans, it began to rain in Ernest..with a flip of a switch, plastic walls were lowered to enclose the entire area against the rain...wonderful food selections ..steaks and seafood. Highly recommend

We spent our 30th Anniversary dinner at Larkin's on the River. It's located just over the bridge from the historic district- extremely convenient. We sat outside and while we were first getting settled, a storm came through. They were very quick to get the outside area closed up and water proof for the customers. As soon as the storm was...
