Just like the title says, Folk's Folly Prime Steakhouse is good but it just isn't good enough for the price. If you read my other reviews, you will find the steak restaurant that I compare all others to and Folk's Folly just isn't in the running even though the price is about the same if not a little higher.

Folk's Folly should be a great place to dine. I keep returning, thinking this time they will get it right. It has all the "right stuff" until you start eating. Great atmosphere, check. Great cozy, dim piano bar, check. Great menu selections, check. Deliciously prepared, high quality food, WRONG. I mean that is the whole point of giving your hard... More

We took some business guests to this restaurant and were very disappointed and embarrassed. Out of 7 people, four of us had to send our entree back. One of the problems was burnt lobster tail served with a fillet that was one of their specials that night. It's really sad to see a nice restaurant go down hill so badly.

My wife and I went here for our anniversary. I was a bit taken back when I asked if they could do something special since it was our anniversary. They said "Of course, we will put balloons at your table and you will get a free caramel cake." Balloons??? I thought I would give it a chance. I had been... More

We went there on our 44th anniversary. The food was great and the service outstanding. I've eaten there a couple of times over the years and it has always been great. It's a bit pricey, but its worth it. The lighting is dim and you can hear conversation across your table easily.

We loved this restaurant, quiet, comfortable, Good Food, and atmosphere. If you like local and Love a Great Steak...this is it! If you Get the Rib-Eye, there will be a HUGE bone attached and it is so good. We loved the Bakery and butcher shop where you can go get what the restaurant has but take it home and cook... More

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
