Great restaurant. First time in Folly and ate here on advice from locals. Great food, great service. We were sorry to hear they'll be closing in October. Their bid for the vendor for the pier wasn't renewed. Please consider another location....everyone we talked to that lives local loves your place!! And so do we!

This was our first time at Folly and Locklears. I had the crab burger, and it was delicious. We sat at the bar at a very non-busy time, and we had great service!

This is a great place to go to cool off after a day on the beach. It's our lunch favorite. The burgers are excellent, the service is great and the drinks are cold!

Fried shrimp and flounder is great! We had other meals there as well and were all delicious, You get a great view of the beach and pier as well. We ate other places in town but none seemed to be as good and they were always 5 to 7 dollars higher than Locklears. Service was nice and friendly as well!

We ate here twice in a four day stay at Folly because it was that good. The fried calamari, which is easy to prepare badly, was perfection both times! Our group tried crab sandwiches, shrimp sandwiches, fried flounder (fantastic), and burgers. The hush puppies were substituted for fries and are really great also.The atmosphere is casual and beachy. We will... More
