Mark & Larkin Hammond Founded Larkin’s Restaurants in 1998 in Lake Lure, North Carolina and established LARKIN’S ON THE LAKE and BAY FRONT BAR & GRILL as a premier dining destination in the beautiful setting of Lake Lure.
In 2005 Larkin's Restaurants set out to expand their hospitality business with an addition in Greenville, SC – LARKIN’S ON THE RIVER, the restaurant, catering & premier event center located at the PEACE CENTER in Downtown Greenville.
In 2008 the couple expanded further with the addition of a brand new concept “Larkin’s Carolina Grill” featuring creative casual cuisine, in a comfortable atmosphere. “The Grill” is located in Columbus, NC.
Now, seeing a need for a GREAT burger in Greenville, Larkin had the idea of a creative burger restaurant, offering the best burgers, the best buns with the best toppings they could source. With the assistance of Mark (Larkin’s husband) and Bob Munnich, operating partner from Greenville, they are developing a management team, menu and facility to deliver the best service and atmosphere to enjoy their great burgers, salads, sides and desserts. To top it all off, the creation of a gourmet milk shake, adult milk shake menu and an amazing wine list will further enhance the dining experience at MARKS!
LARKIN’S Strives to exceed our guests’ expectations and be the BEST destination dining facility in the Carolinas as well as the EMPLOYER of CHOICE in the Hospitality Industry.
