Great food for a great price

The food was very good--fried shrimp were battered well, not too heavy breading. Prices are much more reasonable than some other nearby seafood spots on Folly. And you get a ton of food so it is possible to even share an entree, depending on how hungry you are. Service is quick but very... read more

We had driven past the Sandcastle for 5 days before we decided to give it a try. It never seemed busy, so we figured there was a reason. Well, we were wrong! The Sandcastle is a hidden gem! The food was very good and the prices were fair. The portions are huge! We split two shrimp platters between 4 of... More

We make sure to visit the Sandcastle every time we come for the last couple of years. Great Food and Great Prices. Love sitting out on the screened porch.

There was no wait to eat, everywhere else was to crowed to eat right away without a long wait. We were HUNGRY! The food was good and the service was as well no problems there. Yes the food is fried and it is not your fancy seafood place. I would call it a little whole in the wall gem. I... More

Our family loves this place! We have started a tradition of making it our dinner after beach trips during the summer. We pulled up one day just before they opened and my 4 year old cried because she wanted the okra so bad. It truly is one of our favorites (even if the fish on the wall never got battries)... More

Could not eat there. It is closed. We could not find out if it is only open certain months or seasonal. Please advise and update their availability for future travelers

Doesn't look like they do much business, but our food was really good. This is a bare minimum atmosphere, but we were here for food not ambiance. Situated right on the Folly river.

Stopped here on the way back to Folly Beach. Ordered the grilled shrimp. It didn't taste grilled and was VERY GREASY. Cole slaw was good. Service was good and staff friendly. Probably won't go back here.

We have been coming to Folly Beach for five years, but this is the first time we have eaten here. The food was fresh, and well prepared. It was not overly fried or heavy at all. The hush puppies were killer, as was the Cole slaw. The fish and shrimp were excellent, and everything was ready in a few minutes.... More

Cash only. Delicious seafood at reasonable prices. $3 beer. Great view if you get an outside table on the screened in porch. We will be back soon!
