Ate there this past week. I had the surf and surf which consisted of grilled mahi and grilled shrimp both were good. I also sampled some of the fried flounder and fries from a friends plate and they were quite tasty too. Service was very good.

This place was recommended by our fishing guide as a place that he enjoyed . It was very fitting as we were fresh of the boat after a day chasing red fish. Very informal but with a very good menu. Good service and friendly staff. We were there at a slack time so it may get a little more raucous... More

We've stayed here for the last 3wks. & sampled she crab soup @ most of the "island restaurants" surrounding Charleston. The Grill and Island Bar's version of this world iconic favorite has been our favorite to date. In addition, the servers were particularly attentive to our requests. The added + is there is a great happy hour and music during... More

We ate here twice this month while visiting Folly. The staff is friendly and so good at what they do that the bartender, Anna, remembered what we had to drink on our first visit. The food is very good and the prices are comparable to surrounding restaurants. The crabby corn fritters are yummy and heartily made -- you can see... More

We ate at this restaurant several years ago and had good memories of that experience, so decided to try it again the weekend after Thanksgiving. The Sunday night crowd was sparse, but the food was excellent. We dined on fried shrimp and oysters, which were among the best we've had at Folly Beach. There was live music in the main... More

Had a great breakfast at the Grill during a Surfers Healing, a foundation for autism, benefit. The shrimp and grits skillet was awesome and the pancakes were huge! The owners and staff could not have been more gracious and friendly. Looking forward to going back for dinner.

Had dinner our second night in town. Was a nice evening and we sat outside. We had the fried green tomato appetizer, grouper with roasted vegetables and red potatoes. My wife had grilled shrimp, roasted veggies and smashed potatoes. All were served hot and timely. Topped it off with key lime pie that was very good.
