Locklears at Folly

We had lunch on the upper deck with a great view of the beach and Atlantic. Food and beverages were good and the staff was attentive. Very nice portions for a reasonable price.

When we are in Folly Beach we always plan a stop at Locklears. The food is great and eating outside the view is wonderful. The staff is pleasant and very attentive. We highly recommend this eatery.

They get their seafood from Crosby's -- the best source for seafood in Charleston -- so that's a good start. But the breading they use is light an flavorful, which is not always the case with deep fried seafood. I had the flounder and chips -- excellent -- and my wife had the fried oyster and shrimp, also excellent.

Best softshell crab sandwich on the coast. The wife had a salmon spinach salad that was also good. Pleasant view and good service.

We enjoyed our visit to Locklears with some friends who live in Folly Beach. The place was nothing special and the food was average at best. The service, however, was great and our waitress was friendly and accomodating.

Husband had fried shrimp and scallions. I had the southwestern burger because I wasn't feeling seafood that day. He said his was "just seafood". And I HATED mine (I should have known better than to get a burger at a seafood joint but I just didn't feel up to it). He had the key lime pie and loved it and... More

We went to this place twice while on our trip at the end of March. The servers are fast and friendly, and the seafood was very good. We loved the calamari and crawdads (or "mud bugs" they were called). Only complaint was that they were out of the mud bugs the second time we went. Definitely will visit again on... More
