I am a repeat customer and always enjoy were the locals eat. The view is great and outside sitting is available. Lunch is a money saver. Friendly servers and manager. They fixed a vegetarian inlet for me at lunch. My wife had the shrimp and grits with corn fritters and green beans. It was great also will return again. There... More

The waitress was very friendly and brought us a complimentary tray of crackers and fresh crab dip, it was very good. The prices weren't bad at all, and the service was very attentive to us and our two small children. We each ordered the flounder sandwich and received a huge amount of food. Kids meals were generous too. We will... More

The food was about average, but you should go when you can sit outside and watch the water and passersby. That is the only draw we could see. Unfortunately we sat inside, where it was extremely noisy despite being nearly empty. The acoustics are terrible, plus the radio was turned up loud and a bunch of off shift employees were... More

Delicious place for lunch or dinner. Best she crab soup with just the right amount of sherry! Beautiful setting right on the pier.

Went in for lunch on a Tuesday afternoon. Beautiful location right on Folly Pier. The fried oysters were exceptional (the best we have had in the area). The service was extraordinary, Michelle is awesome!

My husband and I went here for dinner because we read good reviews on trip advisor. The restaurant looks like a dump inside and hands out haphazardly laminated menus. The food is over priced. You wouldn't expect a $28 steak to come out of kitchen in a place that looks like this. We ordered an appetizer and went somewhere else... More

Great escape for she crab soup and a shrimp sandwich. I loved their fried flounder sandwich as the batter is not too heavy it is light and the fish is tender. They just have so many offerings that it was hard to choose. Then a nice walk on the pier or the beach it is a great afternoon.

During our 3 day stay on Folly Beach, Locklears was probably our favorite food stop. Situated right at the pier next door to the Tides it was a convenient walk for us. Ample seating was presented inside or outside with the ocean as a backdrop for either. We chose seafood options during our 2 visits with the crab soup being... More

If you love the beach, you will love this beach restaurant. Relaxing, and right at the end of the fishing pier gives you lots to look at while you relax on the beach. The service was friendly, fast and good. Food choices were good and just nothing negative to add. I did go off season, so it was nice and... More
