This is a delightful little place right on the water. The view was perfect. The food was good. It was 92 degrees during the day, but at night there was a nice breeze that made it pleasant to sit outside for dinner. The eggplant tower was delicious! It's a local favorite and I can see why.

Four of us went to Locklear's yesterday for dinner. The view is beautiful ... right on the beach. We sat on the deck, but there was lots of inside seating available. Can't figure out why there was no line at 7 pm on a Friday night, but we got seated immediately! The ladies had the Locklear salad, which was amazing... More

I'm sure the servers are very busy with the tourists, but when I'm on vacation I like to feel like I'm on vacation. There were 3 adults and 5 teenagers in our group. There were extra things we wanted to order, but our server was too busy to stop. We did receive 1 refill on drinks so that was ok,... More

I joined my extended family for a nice dining experience. Even tho we had over 20 we were treated well and that they were pleased to serve us.

The place was half empty, but the service was terrible. Table was not clean, missing cutlery, and took over an hour to get the appetizer. Would not recommend...

We enjoyed the atmosphere very much! There's indoor and outdoor seating. The open-faced chicken salad sandwich is EXCELLENT, and it's enough to share with 2 people.

We ate at Locklears on 6/23. The food was excellent and our server, Wilson, was amazing. This was hands down some of the best service we have received from a restaurant. We look forward to coming back.

Our food and mixed drinks were amazing! The staff was really nice. I got a lbs of Alaskan snow crab legs and he got fried oysters. Both were great and a fairly cheap price for seafood. Would definitely go back again!
