Went there yesterday and it was empty--- no furniture, inside or outside ! Found out from a local that they lost their lease and that the Tides Hotel ( next door ) will take over after renovations.

Food was delicious lightly breaded fried seafood. Service was excellent - as was the view from the deck on a sunny October day.

We ate lunch here on a sunny October day. The outdoor patio overlooks the ocean -- just beautiful. Service was very good. Food is the standard beach restaurant food you find on the island. Not fabulous, not terrible -- just good/average. Pricing is average and servings generous.

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!
