We had the mussels and the wings which were both great. Staff was super nice. It was awesome to spend the day at the beach and then get some great food!!!

Hoped for the best based on past reviews, and the place is not terrible, but it's not great either. Smoked wings were good, and the collard greens were excellent. The fish and shrimp tacos did have only tiny piece of shrimp in each taco, and if advertised as only fish tacos, would have been acceptable. Fries were very salty (... More

Brunch was great! The Bloody Mary Bar was a lot of fun and the burger was perfect, the outdoor fireplace was great for a chilly day.

It is a nice bar but not a restaurant. Food is quite pricy in comparison to equivalent food in real restaurants and not as good but still good for a bar. Service was friendly.

I'm sad we didn't stay for food--the menu looked great! But, do not pass Rita's without stopping in for one of their famous 'Crushes'--- fruit infused vodka goodness served over crushed ice. (Think slush puppy for big kids). Our bartender, Bri (Brianna) was awesome, too!!! Try the lime and/or grapefruit crush--you will not be disappointed!!!

Stopped here for lunch while exploring Folly Beach & sat outside on the patio. Close to the beach and pier. Good, friendly service, nice cold drinks and excellent bar-lunch food. Suspect the place can really rock evenings in summer! We'll have to try it for dinner.

Walking by Rita's, a fragrant smell of oak smoke and pork grabs you, I started to salivate. In the back lot, pit boss Ryan, with his new smoker smiles and waves, must talk to him and check out his bbq, luscious, wonderful, must stop in and eat. A neat, clean restaurant, with a good size bar & a outdoor patio... More

We had a great lunch on the cool patio. Food quality was excellent. Beers a little pricey but it is the beach after all. Observed the staff was excellent and worked as a team very well. Will be back.

Right across from the pier. They have a musicians on weekends (in the summer). Dinner hour gets packed so call ahead or go early. Food is good. Steaks and seafood are both worth a try.
