The food was excellent. I was full and wanted to continue eating. I wanted the chef's recipe before I left, but to afraid to ask. I had the shellfish pasta. The flavor of the white wine, garlic, butter sauce was amazing. Being that I am lactose intolerant, this worked well for my body. Great food, great price.

We came for dinner per recommendation from a fellow elevator rider at the Tides. The view and sound of the ocean while eating would be hard to beat. Our server was attentive and friendly. We shared the buffalo shrimp and fried platter. All good. The key lime pie will be the reason to come back though.

The shrimp and grits were to die for! My daughter had the egg plant tower it was delicious, the food you get here is something you would expect from someplace with a fancy exterior, it is unassuming and delicious.

First let me say that the people working in here were all very nice and friendly. We even had a great conversation about sharks teeth. Unfortunately the burger and chicken salad melt was eatable but that's about all. However, the fries were very very good. The best thing here (other than the people) was the coconut sea salt hand scrub... More

We really enjoyed this place. The food was amazing, and being right on the pier gave us an amazing view of the ocean. We came for lunch on a Friday and were seated right away. Our waitress was great, but it took a long time for our food to arrive. Being that it was not busy, I was surprised at... More

Lockears is on the pier so it's not hard to find and it's right next to the hotel. This is an amazing restaurant, it's the hidden gem of Folly. In restaurant you have a view of the ocean and the pier. On your next trip to Folly you need to go to Locklears and get the shrimp and grits or... More

We liked Locklears on the pier for the drinks and the food, but we loved it for the view of the beach, pier, and ocean.

I wasn't sure how this place would be--many time restaurants on a pier aren't that good. We were pleasantly surprised. We were really just there for munchies and enjoyed the mussels (awesome garlic sauce), calimari, and fried green tomatoes. We would definitely go back again.

We had a reservation but still had to wait a while for a table so we had drinks at the bar which were delicious. It seems to be a family run business with good local cuisine.

Per my hubby: I have walked past this place dozens of times thinking that it must be too good to be true. Adequately priced, never full, beautiful view of the ocean and the pier. I’ve always thought that the food must be terrible. However, on closer inspection, the food was superb! In a city known for She-Crab Soup, this place... More
