We had our Rehearsal Dinner in the Shirley Roe Cabaret Room, and it was something out of a dream! The exposed brick, beams and lighting created a beautiful setting, and the staff was wonderful. They helped my In-Laws carry everything in and decorate/set up, and made sure that everyone had anything they needed throughout the night. The food was great, we did the pulled pork, chicken, corn, potatoes---a truly southern meal, and the specialty drinks were delicious--bellini's and a raspberry drink (in addition to a variety of beer and wine).
We had about 60-70 people, and there was plenty of room for tables, the dance floor, buffet line, and the couch/lounge area next to the bar. We were also able to replace some of the pictures they have hanging up with several canvases of our engagement pictures so it made the room really ours for the night! The proximity to the Westin Poinsett (where we were staying) made for a very easy walk so we didn't have to worry about driving/parking, only about a block and a half away, so it was easy for the grandparents and the other elderly members of the family to get there as well.

Larkin's Catering and Events created our dream wedding! I loved working with Kristina and the team at Larkin's. We conducted our Ceremony and Reception at Larkin's and they took care of everything. They set up all the chairs and tables for both locations and they food was outstanding. At our tasting, we had made a few changes, and they honored those changes exactly and we could tell on the day of our wedding. One thing I loved about Larkin's was that everything was included and they worked with all the other vendors we had. We would pay Larkin's, who turned around and payed our other vendors making it easier on us and not having to keep up with who was paid and who wasn't. They were a dream to work with and I would most definitely recommend them to anyone for an event or just dinner!

We requested appetizers and an open bar cocktail hour, a seated dinner for 207 guests with an open bar and wine/champagne service during dinner, as well as assistance with serving the cake. The food was perfectly cooked and the right temperature. I don't know how they delivered this with a seated dinner of that size, but I can't imagine the food being any better. Guests have been raving to me about how it was the best wedding steak they have ever had. I would recommend them to anyone. Very professional and on top of it. Expensive but worth it for the best.

Larkin's was absolutely wonderful to work with. Not only were they always able to meet with us when we needed/wanted to prior to the wedding but our reception was incredible because of their staff and the service we were provided. The food was delicious and we could not have been any happier with how we were treated!

We are out-of-towners, so it was extremely important for us to have a reliable and professional venue, that would just take charge of any situation. We had a wonderful experience with Kimberly, and others as they led us through every step of the process. We learned that not all venues in Greenville are as professional as you might expect, so it was a real relief to work with such real pros. Once our side of the planning was done, all the ideas, table arrangements, and rental item decisions were made, we knew that they would just make it happen and they did! Our wedding was a complete success, and we didn't have to worry about a thing on our wedding day. Thanks to Kimberly, Christina, Michelle, and all the staff who made our cocktail hour and reception absolutely unforgettable for us and our guests!!

Loved this place. Not only for planning purposes was this venue agreeable, they were able to be so flexible with my situation! The staff was professional from the beginning. They followed up with email and phone conversations. The day of my reception they were gracious enough to stay on the phone with me for almost an hour as I navigated downtown greenville. I totally told everyone south main instead of north main. They made me little nightmare go away! They vale parking was the BEST THING EVER! The food was great, the staff that night at my reception dinner was hospitable and helped the night flow. Thank you Larkins on the River for being amazing!

We had our reception in the Wyche Pavillion at Larkins on the River. Wow was it beautiful! It got even better later into the evening as the chinese laterns were swaying in the breeze. Billy was who I mainly worked with and he was the best! From the very first phone conversation to the end, he was nice, professional, flexible, and very informative. He even took care of my small bar tab after I told him how long my mother-in-law had to wait for her valet. The only negative that I will say is that I had a candy bar as my favor. At the very end, two waiters helped themselves to the candy bar. I alerted Billy to this situation. They even gave us two wine glasses as a gift! Thanks for great food, service, and a magical day to remember!

Larkins provided quality service and flexibility. We had to change the venue at the last minute due to weather and they met the challenge. Some of the servers were a bit "snappy" when it was time for the wedding guests to be served, but the guests took it in stride. The food was good and fresh and enjoyed by all. Overall, I would definitely recommend them and have no reservations with my recommendation.

Larkins was absolutely amazing! Everything that I wanted, they were able to do. They even helped me save money on linens and chairs! Anytime we wanted to change something, they were very flexible. They executed the event without anything going wrong. They knew us (bride & groom) by our first names and were very willing to go above and beyond for us. As for food, only one word......PHENOMENAL! Truly, the good was amazing. Not one person complained and they LOVED it! The shrimp and risotto lollipops are the best! Talk about knowing how to throw a party! Leave it up to Billy and Christina and they will throw you the best party ever!!

When I went to see the venue and signed the contract I was pleased. I was assured of certain wants and needs. I was in contact with my planner constantly.
They allowed us to do a tasting which I would recommend because we had to switch a few items out. Also, they under cook the meat...so I would not recommend getting beef because it was raw both nights.
Also, they did not set up the room in a timely manner in order for me to set up for the wedding. I was happy and pleased until the two days prior when I had to deal with them on a constant basis. Also, at the ceremony some of my guests showed up that RSVP'ed no and one of the planned yelled at my mother for not having the guest count!! But when we looked in the audience people had skipped seats etc... so instead of asking people to scoot down the planner yelled at my mother on the wedding day.
Also, with the bar...we requested kegs behind the counter and weer told no then a few weeks before the wedding we found out that they were allowing another couple to have kegs at their wedding. Also, my husband's mom paid for a set amount open bar and the contract said no shots allowed. The bartenders had been letting people take shots and just told the people not to tell anyone....the venue it's self is nice and the food is good. I think they need a staff change and maybe more understanding of what brides and their families go through to try to make things run smoothly.

Also, with the bar...we requested kegs behind the counter and weer told no then a few weeks before the wedding we found out that they were allowing another couple to have kegs at their wedding. Also, my husband's mom paid for a set amount open bar and the contract said no shots allowed. The bartenders had been letting people take shots and just told the people not to tell anyone....the venue it's self is nice and the food is good. I think they need a staff change and maybe more understanding of what brides and their families go through to try to make things run smoothly. Read less

My wedding reception was held in the Cabaret room - an exposed old brick room with high ceilings and a large wooden bar which was just amazing! It had the masculine feel I wanted for my husband, but a very invited, warm feel I wanted for myself. The space was perfect, I never felt crammed in (I had a buffet, dj, dance floor, welcome area/guest book table, cake and toasting section, AND 10 tables!) The staff were exceptionally nice and the food was delicious. The planning portion was very friendly and open to my difficult demands (beer to toast with due to husbands allergies!), and were very easy to contact when needed. Overall, it was a phenominal experience and did not have a single worry all night!

We had our ceremony and reception at Larkins and they really go above and beyond what you ever expected. We looked at about 50 locations before we decided on one, and for your money and quality Larkins is it all. The food for the restaurant is always amazing and you really do get the same type of quality for your wedding, its not your normal run of the mill wedding food.

We had our ceremony outside in the Courtyard and the reception inside on the 3rd floor in the Cabaret Room.
Billy Watson was wonderful to work with prior to the wedding date. He rented all the equipment we would need (chairs, dance foor, etc.), worked with us to create the best posiible menu for Todd and I and our guest, was very professional and was always quick to respond to any questions or concerns we had.

The day of the wedding, the staff at Larkin's were outstanding, providing great service and seemed very happy to be apart of our wedding day. The food and drink were way beyond any expectations. LOTS of our guest have commented of how wonderful the food was, they were in no way expecting what they got! That of course makes us happy, because it helped our guest enjoy our wedding day too! Of course Todd and I were too busy during the wedding, we didnt have alot of time to eat...let alone taste the food...no worries, Larkin's had packed a huge bag of food to go and sent it to the hotel room we were staying in that night (even including a piece of cake)!

I have only wonderful things to say about Larkin's on the River. A beautiful venue, wonderful people, outstanding food!

Gorgeous venue with excellent catering and a very helpful staff! We had our ceremony in the courtyard followed by a reception in the Wyche Pavilion. Both parts of the wedding were perfect! The courtyard is a great location for an intimate wedding ceremony at a very affordable price, and I can think of no better venue for a wedding reception than the awesome Wyche Pavilion. From the very beginning, Kimberly was there to not only make recommendations but also to listen to my ideas and incorporate them every step of the way. Larkin's also provides a fabulous catering service - my guests can't stop talking about how great the food was and how much food was actually there to enjoy! We were initially upset about not being able to purchase and bring in our own alcohol to cut down on costs; but there are several beverage packages to choose from, and the bar service was great! The wedding day went extremely smoothly and the staff at Larkin's executed everything beautifully! Highly recommend!!

Larkins is a beautiful venue. We had our beautful ceremony outside in their quaint courtyard and our 85 guests simply walked up the steps to our reception. The ceremony with the exposed brick gave a Charleston-like feeling in downtown Greenville. Overflowing waterfalls gave a perfect backdrop for ceremony pictures. The food was impeccable. The ambiance was cozy and rustic. The exposed beams gave our room character. The linens and the staff were wonderful. I would highly recommend them.

Kimberly and the staff at Larkin's made our wedding day the perfect day. No matter what our request, they followed through. The catering was amazing, no shortage of food, and they sent us home with bags to eat later that night. The decor from Larkin's was beautiful, and included flowers and lighting that helped set the stage. The venue is the perfect location and we would not have changed anything. The staff was very supportive and helpful and made the evening flawless. The wedding was so wonderful I wish we could go through it again. Although I was stressed (as any typical bride) the staff helped me realize the important aspects and helped me relax. I would and have recommended this staff and venue to others looking for event space and wedding locations. I appreciate all that they did! It was absolutely beautiful!

Larkins was great. They have such a beautiful venue and all of our guests from New York were very impressed with Greenville. It is right in the heart of downtown and the Hampton Inn is so close for guests to stay. There were only a few minor glitches in that the person we set everything up with was not the same person that was setting up our event. This created a few miscommunication errors. Everyone was very nice though, and the venue is unbelievable. The food was amazing and everyone loved it. You can get extravagant deals on catering or affordable, which was a nice option. We really enjoyed it and it was all we dreamed it would be and more.

This is an EXTREMELY beautiful venue and the "one stop shop" they provide by doing everything from linens to bartender to catering to chairs, etc. is a huge load off of a bride's mind.

We got married in the ballroom on the third floor of the restaurant and then went outside to the outdoor Pavilion. I would recommend getting the full greenery package as well as the chinese lantern package. This venue is absolutely beautiful at night with everything lit in soft candlelight and the lanterns overhead!

The food was fantastic and the presentation was beautiful! This is truly one of the most beautiful places in Greenville!

The only negative thing about this type of venue is that it costs a little more because you can't buy anything outside of Larkin's. For example, if you wanted to buy wine at the discount/bulk stores and get a better deal you can't do that. But I will say that it was a very stress free and much more of a simple way to do it if you have the means to do so.

We really didn't have any stress knowing that everything would be taken care of.

Larkin’s was an absolute joy to work with, both in facility rental and catering. The Wyche Pavilion is gorgeous and provided the perfect location for my overall vision. Jessica was so good that it was like having a second wedding planner. Everything I needed she took care of and was super nice throughout us working together. She went above and beyond many times to make sure everything was just right. We chose the Greenville menu and it was amazing! All my guests are still talking about how great the shrimp and grits were and the best part is most of them don’t like grits! I was very lucky in that all the construction was completed so I was able to use the amphitheater as well. The only issue I will point out was wedding crashers but this is no fault of Larkin’s. Overall it was an amazing experience that I want to do all over again! Thank you Larkin’s and Jessica for making my wedding the most magical day ever!

We used Larkin's on the River as our caterer because they owned our venue, Larkin's Saw Mill. We could not have been happier. Billy, our contact, was out of this world when it comes to customer service and personal attention. We could email him and get a response within a few hours. He constantly went out of his way to make sure our day was a special event. The venue was beautiful on it's own but they have serious attention to detail that made my job, as the bride, so much easier. I would recommend this caterer/venue to absolutely anyone.

The venue was beautiful on it's own but they have serious attention to detail that made my job, as the bride, so much easier. I would recommend this caterer/venue to absolutely anyone. Read less

As a full time grad student, I didn't have much time to focus on all the little details. With Larkin's, I didn't have to worry about a thing! They are event experts and made sure that everything was perfect. We had a small (~60 ppl) reception in the Cabaret Room. The room was gorgeous and the service was great. The guests raved about the food! Thelma even taught us how to Wobble. :-) My one and only complaint was that a planned change to the buffet menu didn't happen. The roasted potatoes were delicious, but I really had my heart set on mashed potatoes.
