“Perfect Plates on the Pier”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Locklear;s does a brisk business even in the off season at the end of the Folly Beach pier. Sit inside or out and enjoy the view of the ocean while tasting a variety of fresh seafood dishes. I had lightly breaded fried shrimp with fries, coleslaw and house made hush puppies. Good price, quantity and friendly service. Enjoy!

“Best Shrimp and Grits!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

During our 7 day stay on Folly Beach, we ate here 3 times. This is a casual dining restaurant, and the food is great. I requested it be our final meal before heading to the airport, which was a great decision since they have a brunch menu Saturday and Sunday. They're shrimp and grits are delicious and comes with 2 corn fritters with tomatoe jam and if you like eggs, one of their brunch items is basically shrimp and grits with 2 poached eggs on top. I had the crab leg dinner one night and it was more than I could have expected. The boiled shrimp were well seasoned and cooked to perfection. And the she crab soup was tastey too! Everything we had was awesome! It's also located on the pier, so you have a great view of the pier and the ocean.

“Outstanding Fried Okra!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

We discovered Locklears on a previous visit and returned twice while we were in town. The fried okra appetizer was delicious--very lightly breaded, hot and crispy. Yummy She Crab Soup. Nice ocean view.
