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 Mark & Larkin set out to expand their hospitality business with an addition in Greenville, SC – LARKIN’S ON THE RIVER, the restaurant. Shortly thereafter Larkin's on the River spawned a catering & premier event center located at the PEACE CENTER in Downtown Greenville and opened Larkin's Sawmill, a 7,000 square foot catering and event space. All of these ventures fall under the flag of LARKIN'S CATERING & EVENTS
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.
In 2012, Mark got his name on their next venture, GRILL MARKS - Greenville's Sophisticated Burger Joint.
