Tremendous meal with fabulous service

This steak house is definitely the real deal. I don't remember the last time I had a better steak and vegetables both cooked to perfection. A great selection of wine also. The service was exceptional and atmosphere just perfect.. I would recommend this steak house to everyone..

Made reservations last nite at our favorite steakhouse,been awhile but us to go for any or no occasion. Cannot go wrong with any choice steak. The sides are enough to split. Be sure for appetizer "folks folly tidbets". Thats a must. The perfect red wine made my filet even better if thats really possible. Servers are the best,very elegant dining... More

Not many restaurants could accommodate a party of 15 at the last minute, but Folk's Folly did. And did they ever! A private room with dedicated servers. And the food was fantastic. I has the petite filet and with all of the sides it was more than enough. Great food, great service, awesome ambiance, what more could you ask for?... More

We were in town visiting , and looked online to find the best steak place, and found folks folly. We made reservations on a Saturday night at 8:30, we arrived at 8:15, and were seated at 8:45, very busy. This place is a beautiful upscale restaurant. Our service, although very sweet was really slow. We got the surf and turf,... More

We truly enjoy this long-time Memphis restaurant. It's a traditional old school place with great hospitality, great service, cotton tablecloths, and a piano bar. If you plan ahead, you can even have a private dining just for the two of you. On the down side ... it's not inexpensive.

If your looking for an intimate experience with great service then Folk's Folly is your place. Recently moved to Memphis and had heard this was the place to go. Decided to celebrate my girlfriends birthday here and it was spectacular. From printing "Happy Birthday" on a menu insert, balloons, amazing service and an amazing birthday cake. Oh, and the steaks... More

A vendor to me to dinner here. He told me it was the best steakhouse in Memphis. And even though I have yet to try all the steakhouses in the area, I imagine I would have trouble finding one better than this one. The side were really good too.

on a Friday evening at 6:30 PM I had no reservations and presented myself to the hostess and asked if I can get a table for one, they seated me in the lounge to where I was greeted promptly by the waitstaff. I ordered a New York strip steak which was tender beyond belief and cook to perfection. The dirty... More
