We ate here on a Wednesday right after they opened. We were immediately greeted as we walked in and told up front it was a cash only place but they had an ATM by the door. The menu is above the counter where you order. Even though it was hot outside we chose to eat on the screened porch because... More

I went based on reviews. They must be paid reviews. It was a joke. Food was greasy and tasted old. We found a piece of plastic in the fish. Only ate a little. Wouldn't ever go back.

Excellent fresh seafood! We had the fried flounder and shrimp and were very impressed. The food was lightly breaded and not very greasy. Quaint little place that is nothing fancy but good atmosphere, excellent service, and friendly staff! Things are setup a little different to keep prices down. Everything is paid for with cash, you order your meal, have a... More

Just having a parking place that we didn't have to pay for was a good start in Charleston. This place looks unimpressive in its strip mall location, but don't let that fool you. This is a gourmet burger, sandwich, and salad joint with a nice selection of wine, cheeses, dips, pastas etc to take home. We had the Hawaiian burger... More

This is a typical seafood restaurant on the coast of South Carolina. It has fried seafood, hush puppies, cole slaw and french fries. The portions are great for the price. The food is excellent. The restaurant is located on a creek and has some nice views.

Absolutely best! We went our last night in SC my hubby was here due to a job. We passed it going to Folly Beach and figured we'd give it a try. It was Def worth it. The only thing that was completely different was you stand at the counter and place your order. I ordered grilled shrimp, founder, scallops and... More

This is a small restaurant that caught our eye as we drove onto Folly Beach. We decided to come back for dinner. This is a cash only establishment - they do have an ATM on site. The seafood was fresh and nicely priced. We were pleasantly surprised that we had an option to have our seafood GRILLED as well as... More

We are at Folly Beach for 2 weeks this fall and have always wanted to try the Sandcastle. It is located on the water just before the bridge unto Folly beach. The screen porch is definitely the place to sit. This is a bare bones, nothing fancy, order @ the counter seafood place. Locally owned and local seafood. Several of... More

I had grilled shrimp and scallops which were very good, would have liked to have seen a few more shrimp on my plate though for the price I paid. Huge basket of fries, some hushpuppies and very good coleslaw. They gave me a sampling of the green beans too which were excellent. Usually this restaurant closes for the winner but... More
