Tonight was my first time visiting. I've heard mixed reviews about this place but I had a great expierience. It was a pretty slow night. The place is very cozy and our server was friendly and attentive. The food was also great. I had the special, crab stuffed scallops and they were phenomenal! I wasn't a real fan of their... More

After I had read some of the reviews about Garlock's - both good and bad - I decided to related my experience there, especially after reading the review by Kathy. Kathy had a bad experience with a broken bottle top. Mine was similar but with a large piece of nut shell in my pie. This happened three years ago. My... More

Yes, we had a enormously great time at Garlocks. As first timers, we called ahead, and were told to phone after 4:00 p.m. to reserve a table. I ordered the broiled fish special, and my spouse had the tortilla encrusted tilapia special. We were so happy to have so many fish choices on a Friday besides the typical fish fry.... More

we arrived 15minutes early for our 730 reservation. Stood at the entrance almost 10 minutes. We were not greeted by anyone. We finally found the podium in the back of the bar. While waiting, we ordered 2 glasses of wine at the bar. the barmaid poured the wine from the bottle into a glass THEN transferred it to a wine... More

We celebrated our 45th anniversary on Valentine's day and had a good time. Surf & turf was very well done and service was great. Two complaints - parking is difficult and bartender doesn't know how to make a whiskey sour. Really it was the worst I've ever had.

Service was not attentive and the specialty of the house steak was just so-so. The manager was sitting right by the door and never asked how my meal was or even said goodbye. No concept of customer service.

Just returned from my first trip to this historic restaurant and I will not be returning anytime soon! The atmosphere was dark and dated and the food was not worth the cost. I ordered the French Onion augratin soup for my starter and you can get better in a can. The broth had no flavour and the onions had not... More

The hostess, who were later told was a former owner, now mother of the owner, seemed put out to meet us at the door and with a less than cordial attitude showed us to a table. The old restaurant smelled of old, and knotty pine decor was hardly quaint. The server was slow to our table with only two other... More

My husband & I went to Garlocks only because it was one of the Buffalo's 2013 Restaurant week specials & the only rest. in the Niagara County section that we had not tried yet. Walking into the place was very nostaglic. The special was soup, salad, surf & turf, coffee, and dessert all for $20.13 a person!! The food was... More

We have gone to Garlocks twice now after visiting the area from Canada to attend a Bills game. With the team's recent play, the restaurant has, unfortunately, been the highlight of these weekends. The decor and atmosphere turns back the clock at about 30 years, but in a very pleasant way. We have stuck to the steaks which have always... More
