Best steak I have ever had, perfectly prepared and seasoned. Wait staff was attentive but not intrusive. Excellent suggestions by waiter, and atmosphere was inviting. Thank you, thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

one of our favorite restaurants. Great aged cuts of beef, crab legs, lobster, and enough sides and salads to make my vegetarian bride smile. We both love the fried dill pickles and the wine list is one of the best in this part of the country. Our favorite place for special celebrations.

The food at Folks Folly was absolutely perfect. We were a group of 8 adults and were in one of the private rooms. The serving staff is friendly, helpful and efficient. The chairs are comfortable for sitting and dining for several hours. The food was perfect. The sea bass in a lemon sauce was the best preparation anyone had tasted.... More

I've dined at Folk's Folly on a few occasions and just as in the past this was an excellent dinner. Good atmosphere, great service and really, really good steaks. This is what a good steakhouse should be.

Only in town for one night and asked my client where to go and they said Folk's Folly. Sat at the bar and my order got totally messed up. I had waited for a good while before it came out, but everything but the broccoli came out opposite from the way I ordered it. They offered to cook another steak... More

This is a Prime Steakhouse. The setting is private and elegant. The food and wine were exquisite. I came with 6 family members for a graduation celebration. The only drawback was the service: I felt rushed to order; our food came very quickly; they cleared plates before all were finished eating. The price is very expensive but worth it. Key... More

Free Valet Parking. Make reservations. The spacious bar area has live piano on Saturday night and a happy, upbeat atmosphere. Dining rooms are large, some small private for that special night and yet seem intimate because tables are spaciously spaced. THE most attentive staff I have ever encountered. Steaks, pork chop, lamb, turf, free range chicken and amazing side dishes.... More

Enjoyed nice outing for friend's birthday. Complimentary dessert for one celebrating the birthday which is a nice touch. Menu is on the pricey side but if you are looking for elegant dining & atmosphere to celebrate a special occasion, it's a good choice. Service was top notch.

This restaurant was recommended as 'must do', when I visit Memphis and I was not disappointed. It was relatively quiet evening and we were seated in a small room with only one table (it felt a little exclusive). The restaurant was in an old house with a bit of history. Our server was happy to give a bit of background... More
