The cheese steak is where it's at! Aweaome live music too! It's a fun, local bar with cold drinks and surf videos on the big screen.

Atmosphere out the wazoo, we like the tuna tacos, look for the specials board. Low country bar cuisine - not the greatest - not the worst. Good selection of brews and catch the old surf movies, shown continuously, they are a hoot.

I love the environment. The food is adequate. The staff is attentive. When coming to Folly you must go to the Sand Bar. This isn't a place for kids but dogs, yes.

Food was average at best. Burger tasted more like sausage than a burger. Fries were cooked in oil that hadn't been changed in a while. And that was the good part. The management clearly can't tell or doesn't care when a patron has been served...More

A favorite of locals and tourists alike, the small menu is consistently good!! The vibe is funky, casual bar and restaurant, with often really good music for the late night crowd.

Good Music. Good Food. Good Booze. Great Atmosphere. Happy to stumble across this gem in Folly. Caught it on the off-season, not sure about the craziness of summer, but I still back it.
