Good food and nice that it is up on the pier. We have gone alone or with the whole family and everyone is always happy with their meal.

Sit on the outdoor patio and enjoy a cocktail and watch the sunset and moon rise over the ocean. The food was amazing some of the best shrimp and grits I have ever had. The crab cake sandwich was very good too. Great value for your money and prices were very reasonable too. Probably the best food on the island... More

This place is on the pier for great views of the ocean and fishing. Our waiter was fantastic and incredibly nice. The food was decent and priced right. Overall a casual place with a nice view.

I know it should be raving about the Crab Cakes, and they were good too, but honestly the Shrimp Burger was the best one I have ever had. My husband raved about the Shrimp and Scallops Pasta. Our whole group really enjoyed this place. We sat outside and were able to watch all the Pier activity. Great service too!

We sat out on the deck and enjoyed the weather in the evening. It probably would've been better to get there earlier than 9 in the evening (an hour before closing time) as it took awhile to get a waitress. Once we had a waitress, though, she was very accommodating. The calamari was phenomenal!! The shrimp and grits were very... More

The location is probably the best part of this restaurant with great ocean views. However, service was very slow and we had to ask for things such as silverware multiple times. Crab cake was decent, but salads and calamari were just so-so. Average overall.

The ambiance here is like a little hometown diner, and it would be nothing without the pier out the window and on the patio, so I wasn't expecting great things. Our food was AWESOME!!! Two of us enjoyed pasta, one had shrimp and grits, we had a buffalo shrimp, and a barbeque chicken and shrimp dish. We were all really... More

Locklear’s I love this place. Nothing fancy just beach food but reliably good and a great setting for sun-downing or moon rising. If you are looking for a great burger, or fried fish this is as good as I’ve found on Folly Beach and the prices are reasonable. It located right there at Folly Pier, on the beach with easy,...

This restaurant had a great view. We sat outside and overlooked the ocean. The wait was not that bad even though we had a large party and it was a holiday weekend. The food was delicious. Some of the best hush puppies I've ever had. Fried okra was like home made and was yummy. Crab legs were very good and... More
