We got to The Tides at Folly, and right in front of the hotel is Rita's. we have been there before, and looked forward to coming to eat lunch there again. We weren't disappointed. The fish sandwich was very fresh and delicious. Fries were crisp and seasoned well. My wife had the shrimp tacos, which again were fresh. There was plenty of portions of food.

They do have outdoor seating, with heaters if it's cool out.

Staff was helpful and friendly.

The restaurant is right across the street from the beach (you can't see the water, your close). We spent about $45 for the meal.

Decorated in a beach motif. It has a good cocktail list. I enjoyed an orange crush. The menu is diverse. I had smoked wings & a house salad. The wings were cooked well & were meaty. Only complaint was some of them had a thick skin. Salad was good & I adored the balsamic vinaigrette. I swear it is the best I have ever had. I don't typically get excited over a salad but that dressing is killer. Wish I could get the recipe. Service was good despite them being understaffed: overheard the staff discussing it, otherwise wouldn't have known.

Return visit during the slow season meant no wait, The ambiance is beach and contemporary. Wendy our server was on top of it. The smoked bacon and shrimp soup was very good. The burgers were good with a good bun and the ribs were good falling off the bone. The wedge salad is improved with real bacon bits and not bacon slices. Recommend and will return if the wait is not to long, Call ahead would help locals during the summer busy season. Hope this helps.

his is a fine place to eat on Folly Beach. The service is not great. We arrived before it got too busy for lunch and the hostesses looked at us, a family of four, like we were bothering them. They hardly greeted us, looked like they would rather be anywhere but there. Once we were seated, we were ignored for almost 15 minutes - a waiter walked past our table several times, no acknowledgement, no water nothing. Finally we got the attention of another server and had to loudly ask for service. In a few more minutes we finally got a waitress to come over and take our orders. The food was fine.

We had lunch here one while staying at Tides. It's just across the street from that hotel. They had excellent food and average price.The service was very good too. They also have entertainment in the evenings as we could hear from the hotel most evenings we were staying there.
