Perfect seaside restaurant

We sat outside and had an excellent lunch. Great location and great food. The piña colada isn't too shabby either. My husband had the pimento cheese burger and loved it. I had the fish and shrimp tacos and they were excellent. Service was so-so. If we are ever back in Folly Beach we will eat here... read more

What a great spot on the corner across from the Tide's Hotel...great location with inside & outside dining. The staff is super friendly and excellent at what they do! Food was great and we ate here twice - once for breakfast and once for lunch. I would definitely make this casual, fun spot a destination for a quality meal at... More

Rita's is one of those places where you immediately feel comfortable and is a must if you are eating in Folly. They offer live music and plenty of TVs if you want to catch a game along with a bite to eat. Their version of shrimp and grits is one of the best I have ever had.

Stayed at Folly Beach, SC for 4th of July weekend. Keep in mind that most businesses here make their annual profit during high summer - June, July, and August. So I expected to pa a little more for everything. Rita's definitely pushes that envelope. Think basket dishes served in real plastic baskets, paper napkins, and plastic drink ware. Now imagine...

Stopped by during July 4 week around 1:00. Got a table for 7 plus 1 dog immediately. They brought a water bowl for the dog too which was a nice touch. Three of us ordered the nachos as our meal. Who would have thought of watermelon pico on nachos. It was a great touch. I had the blackened tuna nachos... More

Went to Folly Beach in early May of 2015, stayed at the Tides. Across the street is a fairly, new, to me, place. Tried it. OMG, went there 2 times for dinner and once for breakfast. Great food, friendly service.....nice environment, booths, tables, bar, outside patio. Not directly on the beach, across from the Tides. Check this place out. Found... More

I had the crabcake burger and fries. It was so good. This place was hopping. We were sitting at a table near the bar and people were crowding around the bar and were so close to us. It was very loud. But overall it's a laid back beachy type atmosphere. The food was good so it was worth it.
