We have dined at Garlock's Restaurant on a couple of occasions. I had the lobster and it was huge and delicious! My husband had the steak and it was great! The atmosphere is quaint and romantic. I would recommend Garlock's Restaurant, a definate must try!

We ate here this evening for my husband's bday dinner, but sadly we were disappointed. I have on occasion been going to this restaurant over the last 60 years The twice baked potato had a funny taste, it was so dry that it seemed it had been twice baked last week and reheated daily until today. It surely was not... More

On May 31, 2016, my wife, two friends, and I ate dinner here. Our server, Angela, was nice, but her service was slow. Our food was good.

This used to be a great place to eat. We went there on a Friday night and it was not busy and the food was ok. The wait staff were lax in their jobs. Spilled water all over a lady near us and broke several dishes too! Our waiter was crude, he actually picked up my baked potato with his... More

Have been to Garlock's numerous times in years past and always enjoyed decent food, nice drinks, and fair prices...that is until recently. It was a week night about 7pm when we arrived without reservations. We were told "no problem" and promptly seated by the host. 15 minutes or more went by before the host re-appeared, apologized for our waitress and... More

Invited out of town friends for a night out. We picked this place because we thought it was good as an established old place in town. We had never been there before. To be fair, we did not have a reservation. However we were seated about 20 minutes later after we had a drink at the bar. All was fine... More

I have always heard good things about this place, but we were very disappointed in our meals. Given it was a holiday, we thought the food might have been "extra special". Turns out, not so much.

This place has been in Lockport,NY forever. It is known for its tenderloin steaks which are very good. It has a unique ambiance with empty commentator liquor bottles on wall shelves. The food is always consistent, good but not great.

Great little restaurant for family, couples and friends. Prime Rib is very nice. You can go surf and turf if you want and the fish fry is tastey but I prefer the broiled fish myself.
