The food was very good. The salad was good as was the pimento cheeseburger. The collard greens and Mac & Cheese were also well received. Prepare to pay resort area prices. Also, there is very little parking at the restaurant so unless you are staying nearby prepare to pay $5 to park in a parking lot.

On our family vacation, we came in early to watch the soccer match and sat on the covered patio. Service, drinks and food were awesome! Tuna Nachos were delicious! We had a great time!! Came back later in the evening for dessert and had the best Key Lime pie!!! Great place!! Go and enjoy!!

Very busy! food was excellent. Bloody Mary's were tasty. Only complaint is noise level. Very difficult to have conversation due to acoustics. Live music on patio was nice too. Highly recommend!

This is a busy little beach town restaurant. We stopped by and gave our name to be put on the list and were told it would be a 40 minute wait during the dinner hour. It wasn't quite 40 minutes. They must have had a party reservation as there were quite a few tables set but no one was being... More

While vacationing at Folly Beach, we were looking for a restaurant for supper. We wanted some food that wasn't too expensive. One of the staff at the Tides Hotel told us about Rita's.

Rita's has changed hands since the Southern Living article this year. According to personnel a lot of upgrades. It has been nicely done with a great beachy nautical theme. The restaurant staff from manager to server were nice and attentive. Nice inside/outside dining atmosphere. If you are a shrimp and grits person, definitely try theirs. Very good, with a little...

We had the Shrimp and Grits, Oyster Po' Boy and Greek Salad. They were all good. The shrimp and grits was very good. I would definitely order this again. I would go back to Rita's. We liked the food here better than some of the other restaurants in the area. The atmosphere was relaxed and casual.
