Great view, not your average seafood

While they do serve some of the usual seafood choices, I had a burger made from shrimp. It was very good and came with seasoned fries which were just right - not too hard or too soft, & not greasy. We are outside. The outdoor furniture is nothing special, as it is outdoors right off the beach. The... read more

We stopped at Locklears while visiting Folly Island for a week. The food was great. In my party, we had seafood, pasta, hush puppies, and corn fritters. No one was disappointed! The atmosphere is average, but the view of the Folly Pier is great. Service was great too. Would return again.

Its right on the water and often they have some sort of little band playing outside. A short walk from the hotel and so worth it!!! You can eat inside or out and the food is divine. We recomend the crab legs and of course the shrimp and grits.

We went here for dinner during the week. We sat outside because the breeze from the ocean kept us cool enough. Their drinks and food are very good! It is like an average priced place to eat at. I had the chicken salad sandwich which was amazing chicken salad! The server was very nice even with the amount of people... More

We ate at 3 different restaurants while on Folly Beach this week and this restaurant was the best. I don't eat fish so I had the ribeye. It was excellent. We also enjoyed the Jazz Band.

Locklears has an excellent location, right on the pier, which is the focal point of all the beach goers. The restaurant is a bit more than the snack bar, located in the gift shop, next door. My wife had their cheese burger, which gave her a choice of cheeses and bbq sauce, complete with French fries. I had their fried... More

This restaurant is situated at the start of the Pier in Folly Beach and is the best location ever. They also have the best cocktails I have ever tasted. You cannot leave Folly Beach without trying the Mango Marguerita. Yum.....The staff were great although if you are having a meal, order the cocktail from the server and not the bar.... More

Well, the day was balmy and beach- beckoning, so i meandered over to the Folly pier for a sunny sandy view on the porch a lazy early afternoon BM and peel and eat shrimp. Only and half pound of overcooked, mushy peel and eat shrimp pudding could spoil the day dream and that LL's accomplished with aplomb! WHAT???Terribly disappointing and... More

We were able to get a weekday seat very quickly. Sat on the patio with family friends and were able to listen to beachgoers have a good time. My wife and I shared a fried platter and thought it was fine. Nothing special. I wouldn't rush out to recommend it to a friend with exception to the view. I can't... More

I've eaten at Locklear's several times, and the food is great, and the prices are fairly reasonable, despite the location right on the beach. The service is usually ok, but on a recent visit, it was not good at all. The waiter was particularly rude and short with someone at our table who had a legitimate complaint; however, that incident... More
