An average meal

I was starved when I entered. Their philosophy is to have a leisurely meal. So it took a long time to get my salad and mussels appetizer.

Fantastic!!!!!! Everything from the time you enter to the time you leave, you are family!!! Everyone is friendly and the waitresses explain all of the entrees. The steaks and the Prime Rib is so juicy and tender!! We LOVE this place and have been coming here for over 10 years!!

My sister and I stopped by the Garlock restaurant on a Friday night just after 8 pm. The parking lot was full - a good sign I think. We were escorted to a nice table right away. We decided to order a 5 course meal for $20. The meal included salad, seafood bisque soup, baked haddock, scalloped potatoes, garlic toast... More

Garlocks has been around for quite some time. The food here has always been pretty good. It's geared towards an older crowd.

My husband and I have eaten here in the past and have noticed a decline in service. We arrived around 6:30 pm and were told the wait was 5 minutes. We took a seat at the bar and ordered a drink and were seated 15 minutes later. This was fine with us. The problem we had was from the time... More

After 40 years of driving by Garlock's on our semi-annual journeys to see relatives in the area, I finally had an opportunity to have dinner there. It was early on a Saturday and we didn't have reservations, but we were able to be seated right away. They had a mini surf n turf special (6 oz filet and 5 oz... More

The outside of this restaurant may be off putting as it looks like an old dive. The inside is quite charming. The food includes steaks, seafood, chops and fowl. We came here for our anniversary. My husband had the surf and turf. His steak was supposed to be medium well and it was medium rare to rare. It was also... More

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.

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.
