Ate here with 12 people. Had a Private Dining room. Had a blast and great service! Everyone had something different. I had bone in Filet. Yummo. Sides were great too. Thought the appetizers were OK, nothing special. Disappointed in quality of the Calimari and I think it was cooked too long. Would go back!

Thank Father T

Saturday night crowd and Folk's Folly has at least two huge groups of 30-40 in each. There seemed to be ample servers and amazingly each order was served without mixup. We did have to wait between appetizers and entree, but the point of a group meal is to dine and converse together so there was leisure to do so. All... More

We were part of a large group at Folk's Folly and it was a little hectic and loud but the food did not disappoint. Steaks, fish and lamb were all perfect. Sides were good, however I thought it odd that when they had run out of one side the waitress just bought an alternative rather than ask what we might... More

I was staying around the corner and passed this restaurant everyday going to my job site. I wished I would have eaten here sooner! I had the pork chop with sweet potatoes. Best pork chop I've ever eaten! Kind of pricey but it's consistent with the quality of the food and service. Kevin at the bar was excellent! I can't... More

We selected this restaurant to celebrate a very special occasion. Unfortunately, the only thing special was the occasion. The food was really good, but the service was awful. When you pay this much, you should be able to expect soda and water refills, to be checked on from time to time, and for the server to wait for answers from... More

Folk's was recommended by a friend and that was good enough for us - but she undersold it. We got there without reservations and were met by the lounge bartender who offered us seating in the lounge - indicating also that they had live piano music coming up. The food was great (pricey - but not unexpectedly so) - The... More

For those needing a small intimate room for business dinners - this place offers great chops with comparable setting, several small room settings/rooms for special nights or business dinners. The food is the a top option for a Memphis chophouse.
