Meet Rick

Rick Erwin is living his dream. A native of Greenville, SC, Rick has always had a life-long passion for the restaurant business. In fact, his first job was at a family steakhouse when he was only 14 years old. Today, his passion revolves around bringing his devoted patrons the finest food and exceptional service in a casually elegant and comfortable setting. Rick learned long ago that to be successful you have to understand what your customers want, and deliver over and above that expectation every day. "We start every day with the same goal, ” Rick says, "keeping our customers satisfied.”

Since its opening on May 11, 2005 in the heart of downtown Greenville, Rick Erwin’s has consistently garnered awards for excellence, including being named among Open Table's "Top 50 Restaurants in the Nation"—a distinction bestowed upon only two restaurants in the entire state. When he’s not hopping from table to table greeting guests, Rick is involved in numerous civic endeavors. He has served as President of the board of United Ministries and now serves as the President of the restaurant division for the South Carolina Hospitality Association. More »
