We were at Larkins on a Friday night, and it wasn't crowded, service was excellent, and the food was divine. The side dishes are incredible - we had greens, red beans/rice, and the mac n' cheese. Waiters were attentive and made good

Pros: Amazing side dishes, good BBQ

Cons: parking (try the side streets)

.

Decent food and cute surroundings but a really strange operation, and finding a place to park is like taking a walk on the wiid side. No parking lot to speak of, and if you miss your chance on the on the crazy busy curve out front, you're

Pros: Interesting recipes

Cons: Just about everything else for my dollar

Pros: great concept

Cons: not too bright with getting it together

Parking was a joke on the little side street. The lot in back has four spaces that were probably taken by the waiters. I asked a waiter, who was on the porch, "Hi, we're here for brunch. It's our first time. Do we check in with you?" He

We ate here last weekend and had an amazing time. The restaurant is small so you may have to wait. Great service and I will be back for the fried chicken it was delicious. My husband had the jumbalya and wouldn't share. Great staff-

Larkin's is in a lovely California Craftsman house with a porch for outside dining. Their food is really good, portions are big and rich. The menu changes with the market. I tried the corn dogs and I couldn't finish it.They were HUGE!
Last time I went, they didn't have a wine/beer license, so bring something if you want to have alcohol with your meal.

I went to Larkin's last Saturday and I loved the fried chicken, it was perfectly seasoned and crispy. The cornbread, mac n' cheese, mashed potatoes and gravey were all delicious. I also loved the complimentary black eyed pea dip.

I've been here twice and can't wait to bring more friends. This resturant is in a great Craftsman style house and the food was amazing! I recomend the fried chicken! It melts in your mouth, the blue cheese wedge was also worth having then

Pros: Soul food with less guilt

Cons: Small space so you may have to wait to be seated

This place is terribly over priced with horrible service, its impossible to park, and they only do take out orders if they feel like it. $15 for fried chicken! Don't bother going here.

Tonight we ordered takeout from Larkin's. Every time I've driven by, it seems as though the restaurant is full of customers and features a sign out front that says "Food for the Soul". \r
We reviewed the menu online and placed our order

This place is by far one of my favorite hidaways in Los Angeles. The food, the ambiance, the staff, are all working in this little house in Eagle Rock. Don't go if you can't leave your attitude at home. This is a place to sit and enjoy

Pros: Fried chicken!

Cons: Possible wait, no substitutions, dessert is just ok, no fountain drinks.

The food at Larkin's isn't bad - but then again, there's nothing particularly special about it either. As for it being "healthy" southern food, my catfish was battered and fried just the way mom always did it (I grew up in the south).

Larkin's is officially open as of last week. My husband and I were lucky enough to beat the crowd and get a table for dinner on Friday night. The decor is cozy and eclectic. Tables are made from doors and covered in glass. Stained
