Real good food in a grwat setting

Having eaten here several times, I highly recommend Locklears. The shrimp and grits are about the best in town. The corn fritter with tomato jam that comes with the dish is the best part. The locklear salad with shrimp is also a good meal.

We met some friends at the beach and hadn't eaten yet so we stopped here because of its convenient location. The view is great! The food was just okay and a little pricey for the quality. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful putting a rush on our Kids food because they were starving. Good choice if you are at... More

We had a group go to Locklears this past weekend, and thought it was alright. Nothing was amazing, but nothing was awful. The views are nice, but the restaurant is rather small and cramped. Having to pay $10 to park outside the restaurant was annoying, but understandable because it's next to a pier. The food wasn't bad, but there's better.... More

The best thing about this restaurant is sitting outside looking at the ocean while dining. The Pasta Locklear was not impressive. Bland at best.

We wanted to go out on the pier, and decided to get a bite to eat here first. Our waiter was very friendly, and the food was delicious.

We wanted to eat at a restaurant overlooking the pier and beach and this was great! Everyone enjoyed their meal, and I especially recommend the shrimp & grits. Definitely a must try while on Folly Beach.

We were looking for dining on the beach. Locklears offers that. We both had fried flounder sandwiches which were very good. They were flexible and allowed us to have slaw instead of the designated fries. Outside space where we ate wasn't the cleanest place we've ever eaten, but to be fair it is right on the beach and subject to... More

Fantastic food, especially the fried crawfish basket! wow! The server staff needs just a bit of happiness thrown in. None of them really seemed like they wanted to be there. Watch out for all the birds that want to mooch off your food!

I loved the dish I had - shrimp and scallops in a white sauce with sun-dried tomatoes over pasta. I also tried my friend's calamari - perfect! And our waiter was awesome. He knew so many details about which fish was fresh caught local, which were not, etc. And very friendly and laid back.
