Wow...best sandwich I have ever eaten. Not making that up. We have been to Folly every spring for several years, but never stopped in here - that was a mistake we corrected this year. This is definitely a bar, not well lit, full of locals enjoying a beer. So if that bothers you, you will have to miss out on... More

I eat lunch here once a week. Always great food. You can't go wrong eating here. Great staff as well. You couldn't ask for a more laid-back place.

Tiny place with very good bar food snacks and corned beef sandwitches. Mostly for beer lovers and locals. Never had a bad dish from here.

Friendly bartenders , quick service , affordable prices, clean bathrooms, good company , live music and great service. Didn't try the food this time but noticed a lot of people coming in to get food to go. Seems to be the place to go.

When I write a review, I do not base it on one menu item. We had soup (canned at best), wings (super rubbery and barely edible) and fish tacos (with a fishy odor - yuck!). We were so disappointed in everything we ordered. With so many dining options in Folly Beach, I would suggest elsewhere. This place needs to reevaluate... More

My partner and I ate here on a late Saturday afternoon because it looked like a cool and comfortable escape from the summer sun; it's dim and feels a little like a basement bar, but with the added bonus of delicious sandwiches. Our server / bartender was pleasant and seemed genuinely invested, other patrons seemed like comfortable regulars, and I... More

A local friend took us here and for 2 vegans at the beach it can be hard to find food for us. This place was amazing. Great food! We both had the house made black bean burger and the waitress even told us the roll it came on had egg in it and offered other options for bread. The had... More

My brother and I ended up at this little deli/bar by complete chance, and we're so glad we did. After spending hours on the beach, it was nice to relax in this cool and relaxed setting. We tried a couple of beers on tap and chatted with the bartender while we waited for our food. The bartender was really engaging... More

Stopped here at the recommendation of the captain of our dolphin boat tour. It doesn't look like much but the food was awesome! Had the philly steak, french dip, shrimp taco special of the day with the home made potato salad and coleslaw. Best potato salad I have ever had! Ben the bartender was very pleasant and made everyone feel... More
