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

I have grown weary of steak houses lately. They often seem cookie-cutter with the same old tired menu offerings. Folk's Folly rises above the cliche and serves food with a human touch. Our server was Rose. She was down to earth and enthusiastic about how the food is prepared. We enjoyed our filets mignon, mashed potatoes, grilled asparagus, and caprese... More

I went with a group I was in town with for work and our meal was amazing all around! The atmosphere was really interesting because of the old school chop house feel - many well dressed gentlemen enjoying Cognac in fine looking suits as well as young couples and the group of us - all female business travelers. I did... More

Wife and I went here as a special treat on vacation a while back and were NOT at all disappointed. The filet was perfect, the crab was awesome, the sides were excellent, and the server was very polite and attentive. Funny story: when we ordered the crab, they asked my wife she want it pre-cracked (making it easier to eat).... More

A beautiful eatery serving excellent food. The staff here goes the extra mile to make you feel at home and comfortable. During this holiday season the restaurant is tastefully decorated and has a festive aura. Service is very good. A bit pricey, but worth it.

Everything about this place was great. It's a classy establishment with great service and excellent food. It's ambiance is perfect with a piano player in the lounge area. The lounge itself is nice enough for a fancy meal, but I had drinks there and then dinner in the main area. It also has private rooms available for a romantic meal... More
