“Cool & Cozy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

So glad the hostess was outside inviting people into the restaurant or we might not have stopped. Doesn't look like much from the outside but the oyster room was a cozy, comforable and a welcome relief from the SC heat. I had the grouper, my husband had the wood grilled oysters and he-crab soup - all were excellent and the beer was ice cold. The service was OK.

“Father's Day Fail”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We chose this place on Father's Day because they had seating....now we know why.

Our family of 4 ordered very conservatively and the bill was almost twice as much as what we paid at other similar restaurants. Aside from the poor value the food was not very good either. My 2 young daughters ordered steak kabobs and after they started eating them we realized that parts of the kabobs were still completely raw! We sent them back to be cooked further, which they did but there was no offer of compensation or even an apology. I was concerned for their health!

I was also disappointed that the meals did not come with any vegetables...just meat and rice.

“Great food on Folly Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

This is a great little spot with an up to date atmosphere. Food was excellent, oysters were fresh and from a number of different areas. No local as they were out of season. Do not not stop with the oysters because the fish is also good. Service was excellent. Our waitress, Brandy, made our visit even better. Try it you will not be disappointed.

“Oyster heaven!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Great selection of oyster dishes and oysters from different areas including local. Fresh local seafood- we were treated to Grouper the night we went. Very attentive, friendly and accommodating to our family. We did go early so did not have to fight evening crowds. The wood grilled oysters were amazing!!! A Folly gem for sure!
