Good date night place!

Pleasant atmosphere, very good service. The wait staff was very attentive to our needs, food was very good with ample portions. Had broiled sea scallops, our friends had stuff scallops and pork chops, everyone at our table was very satisfied with our meal.

Recommended to us by the Lockport Inn & Suites we were able to walk the three or so blocks to the restaurant. We found a very frindly and warm atmoshere. We ate at the bar and so did the owner! A very nice and comfortable experience. And, the food was great.

Good food but all is overpriced for the location and décor. No value to be found here. Garlocks is living on its past reputation. It is in need of a major face lift with regards to décor and menu. This is not the place to go for a casual romantic dinner without first visiting your local ATM...twice.

I come into town one to two times a year, so I have been to Garlock's several times. It has a menu that you don't generally find at family owned places, escargot, lamb, prime rib... I have had very good meals and I have had very average meals. I have never had a meal with a group of people (up... More

We went on a Friday night with our in-laws, my husband and father had a surf and turf which they liked , but the side dishes baked potatoes, and salad were sub par. I had rainbow trout it was dry and had almost no flavor, my mother in-law had scallops which were just ok. The service was very good. I... More

In the 1970s, here was the place for a fine open tenderloin with all the fine accompaniments. Returning over the years has seen a steady decline in quality of the meals offered. A lettuce salad was brought for our party of three, each bow littered with brown , rusty leaves and even a couple that had turned past wilted. When... More

I've reviewed Garlock's before and eaten here many times. This visit I decided to concentrate on the little things. First, the restaurant is filled with collectibles and local memorabilia. There isn't a speck of dust on anything! With the sheer volume of items this is quite a feat. Next, I was totally impressed with the house buttermilk ranch dressing. Homemade... More

The decor is straight from the late 60s-early 70s and the menu reflects that era. Good 'American' food, steaks, prime rib and seafood offered where the food speaks for itself, not drowned in sauces and exotic spices. We like it.
