A cool and happy respite

The food was terrific- try the smoked options. Our waitress (and everyone we came across) was super friendly and efficient, and seemed genuinely interested in where we were from and how our vacation was going. Southern hospitality at its best.

How is this place rated so highly? Had to send back the salmon sandwich twice because they did not do it correctly (asked for no mayo but got mayo on the sandwich; ice cold the second time with lukewarm fries) and then when I did get it, it tasted terribly. My friend asked for cheese fries which she did not... More

I got the fried shrimp which had 10-15 shrimp and fries which was $19. A little excessive. My wife got a cocktail that was too strong for her but she's kind of a lightweight. The food was great the server was excellent.

It was OK. My kids got mac and cheese which was fine. My friend got the fish tacos and loved them. I got a fish dish, it was OK. Very salty so that ruined it for me. Server was very friendly but would probably not go back.

We sat outside on the patio where it was not too noisy. Delicious food and drinks and a really good waitress. There was live music on the patio that was nice and not playing too loud.

We met as a family at Ritas, We enjoyed everything about it especially the food! The waitresses were friendly and the service was quick. They had a great menu and there was so much to choose from that everyone left happy!

We were at Folly Beach on vacation. We tried Rita's and loved it. Our waitress was very good and the food was also. I would recommend it to anyone.

I love this place! Bar staff and wait staff always very attentive. I enjoy the family atmosphere and you can clearly tell that the staff loves working with each other. That caring trickled down to us immediately and that's what keeps me coming back.

It is definitely not a place we would return to. It's a very convenient beach eatery but for our palette we will go further. It is a casual beach bar and grill which was our expectation but the few standard items of a bar and grill didn't meet the standard. Burger was ok, meat was good but the bacon was... More
