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

The staff is very friendly. Had waiters that wasn't even ours assisting us. Food is outstanding with great prices as well. We were on the beach biggest part of the day and decided to grab lunch. Glad we chose these guys. When we come back we will be sure to stop in. So if your on the beach and need... More

As much as I love the fried seafood platters, and I do indeed love them, the daily specials, especially seafood, are the way to go. It's hard to deny that Locklear's has the best ocean view on Folly Beach, so don't even try. The service is fast & friendly, and I would recommend this spot for families, couples or business... More

My brother was married on Folly beach and they had a dinner afterward at Locklears The food was excellent. Filet was very tender and juicy and cooked to perfection. Fried seafood platter was very tasty and more food than one person should eat. chicken Charleston was excellent with one of the best crab cakes I have ever had. The key... More

Just recently visited Folly beach. After shopping in the stores it was time to decide on a dinner spot. My oldest daughter said there is a restaurant on the pier. Locklears was a nice surprise. The view was great overlooking the ocean and the pier. The service was excellent. Our drinks were never empty and the food came out fast.... More

We wanted to see the pier and it was about lunchtime...and we were hungry. We got a table and I took my daughter to the restroom. That was a dead give away about what kind of experience we were about to have. Don't think they have cleaned the bathroom in a month...Or dusted, cloroxed, or windexed either....makes me wonder how... More

Service was not good at all. Our waiter lost our slip and we had to re give him our order after waiting for what seemed forever. Food was not that great either. Very loud inside. Won't be revisiting this spot. The only thing positive I can say is the atmosphere outside was beautiful.

Some may disagree, but this is a wonderful place to eat. The food tasted wonderful, but what I originally ordered was unavailable. No biggie, ended up LOVING what I got instead. Our server was super awesome, but the hostess was awful. All in all a wonderful treat!

Along with Rita's this is another place you must visit when going to Folly Beach. The food and service is always great and sitting out on the pier while dining is hard to beat.

Nice little place. The hamberger and chicken sandwich were HUGE and very tasty. The best thing however was the Key Lime Pie. We are from the Mid Atlantic, my husband loves key lime pie I hate it but I try it every time he gets it and to my surprise it was Delicious! The only negative was the young woman... More
