Great food and drinks but the staff tuned us out half way through. I'm split because the hostess saw us suffering in the sun and offered to move us to a shaded table. A+ move but she ignored us later when we tried to thank...More

This is a laid back place to eat. We ate inside the bar area, but there is outdoor seating as well. It was our first time at Folly Beach and wanted to try some local cuisine. Everything is homemade and delish! The atmosphere welcoming and...More

Been here a few times and look forward to it when we travel to the coast. Tried a variety of foods off the menu and never disappointed. Favorite are the buckets. Easy atmosphere and friendly staff.

Nothing fancy - just simple seafood and sandwiches for the family. Prices a little high but, hey, this is Folly. Great casual atmosphere and hard-working staff. We take our out-of-town friends there and everyone loves it.

Love, love, love this little jewel. The stuffed flounder was delicious. The server was very friendly and efficient. She even made us to go cups to take back to the beach. I would definitely come again!
