We drove from Columbia, SC, just for lunch here. We already knew what we wanted and were not disappointed. The scallops, she crab soup and shrimp/crab dip were fantastic. A couple of dinera were annoyed by the pigeons and other birds, but we love them. The breeze outside and the Indian summer surf... read more

We love the Folly Beach Pier and just being on it is great and then eat at Locklears! We had the fresh flounder and the waiter asked "do you know the bone structure of the flounder and proceeded to tell us that and to flip it ovetr then chow out again" great dining experience. We will go again.

Service was a bit slow. Food was fine. I ordered the Mango Margarita which was very refreshing! I also enjoyed the Locklear Salad which was very tasty.

While visiting Folly Beach we found Locklear's, located on the Pier. They had several specials on the menu. I had a cup of she crab soup( excellent) and the Pan Crusted Mahi Mahi. It was incredible. Rob was our server. He did a fantastic job, taking care of our large group of 12. It was a great view of the... More

Yes, it is a pier restaurant, but don't be fooled, this is a first class fresh seafood restaurant with a wooden deck pier atmosphere, looking right out over the ocean. No draft beer, but large selection of local bottle/can brews & special drink list.

They offered us 2 other tables, but quickly complied when I asked if we could sit by the window! Quickly moved tables around. Fresh squeezed lemonade is squeezed to order! Had to add my own sugar! Nice! Food great!

The best thing about this restaurant is the amazing view. There are very few restaurants along the beaches in S.C. with this view and wonderful breeze. I don't particularly care for sitting on cheap uncomfortable plastic chairs when dining though. The service has always been good here and I've never had a bad meal, but there is just something about... More
