Thank you to Larkins Catering!

Larkin’s on the River was established in October of 2005 and since that time, Larkin’s culinary inspirations have been created by the Executive Chef Alex Castro – known to our associates and guests as “Chef Alex.” He has taken what was once an old-school steakhouse and evolved it into one of the most stunning and sensational restaurants in all of South Carolina.

He has prepared meals for sports celebrities: Bob Costas, Boston Red Sox hall of famer Jim Rice, movie stars: George Clooney, Renée Zellweger, Kevin Costner, Food Network Chef Tyler Florence as well as Martha Stewart. As Executive Chef of Catering, Chef Alex oversees the menu at Larkin’s Catering & Events.

Chef Alex has a keen sense for flavors, colors, and composition. His creations have entertained diners in Greenville for the past twenty years and his ability to present a flavorful, beautiful, and captivating plate every time is what makes Chef Alex an accomplished culinary professional.
