We went here for our 23rd anniversary and they made it so special. The food is out of this world and the cocktails even better

Best part of this place was the view and the pier to walk. The food was ok. The got our orders all mixed up on the plates and it wasn't just plates mixed up, but the items on the plates did not match any of our orders. The waitress seemed bothered to have to go back to straighten the plates... More

Seriously - go for the crab dip. It is the best I have ever had. We split it for dinner and added some of their chilled shrimp.

I always have the fried chicken breast with sausage gravy and okra. It is absolutely one of the best I've ever had. My wife and I are lucky to visit Folly Beach often and always go to Locklear's Beach City Grill. I would highly recommend Locklear's to anyone visiting Folly Beach! Randy M.

Went for brunch early Sunday afternoon with my date who lives in Charleston. First time for me at this place and Folly Beach, a great bohemian beachfront town. She ordered the Benedict with fried green tomato and I had an omelette with spiced grilled/blackened local shrimp on top and she crab soup as the covering...with soulful grits on side. Absolutely...

Directly on the pier on Folly beach. Nothing fancy. Good selection of seafood and American. Decently priced. Great service! We would eat here again.

We were visiting the Folly Beach Pier and decided to have lunch at Locklear's. Decided to sit on deck overlooking beach and ocean. AWESOME but watch out for the seagulls, they will perch right on your table looking for food. Our meal was wonderful. Husband had shrimp and fish, I had the shrimp burger. Really good. Service was great and... More

On each trip to Charleston, I choose this restaurant to visit as one of my favorites. It is off the beaten path, about 30 minutes from downtown, if there is no traffic, but well worth the drive. The restaurant is located actually on Folley beach, with great ocean view off the deck and a nice boardwalk bedside it, that goes... More

We stopped by for a small bite to eat and a drink or two. Our server was very helpful and knowledgeable. We had hush-puppies & buffalo shrimp - both were amazing! The drinks are just short of delicious as well. You can sit on the back deck and enjoy the ocean view, which was nice. Then, if you feel like,... More

We stayed at the Tides next door and visited this place twice. Right on the pier, and great views from the outdoor seating. We each ordered the same thing both times, I had the buffalo chicken sandwich and my wife had the eggplant tower. Both we're delicious, obvious from us making the same order. Staff was great and it was... More
