Fried shrimp is good, shrimp tacos were amazing, and the burger is really good. Outdoor seating if you have your dog with you.

The washout is a great spot- open air and a band playing- but the food and drinks left a bit to be desired. We all agreed is was just OK.

Hands down lobster roll can't be beat, absolutely delicious and so was the crab dip appetizer. Girls trip run, drove almost 5 hours to get there.

First time eating here. It was about to rain, so we ask to move inside (which is still open air). Margaritas were strong, but I liked it! Fish tacos were Fabulous. Sweet potato fries were also excellent. Small flounder wasn't enough, get the large if...you're hungry. I loved it! My husband and daughter weren't that impressed, said it was just OK. I would definitely go back!More

Shrimp and grits was pretty poor. Shrimp was nothing extraordinary and grits were clumpy, not smooth. Husband's flounder sandwich was fair. Emcee at corn hole was rude and arrogant.

Stopped at The Washout for lunch, wanted the She Crab Soup, sold out. Ordered the fried flounder sandwich, side of fries. Flounder was good size portion, homemade tartar sauce was a bit spicy, but good. The fries were shoestring and seasoned, a lot of small...pieces. We also ordered a cheeseburger that was good, with side of coleslaw, coleslaw had zero flavor. Ordered Key Lime pie, sold out. Ordered Peanut butter pie, it was okay. Service was slow for a Monday afternoon after 1:30 pm. Would we eat here again, most likely no. See photos...More

Atmosphere was fun, got plenty of food and we had up to 3 different servers check on us. 3 of us had the Flounder sandwich and it was very good.

We always stop in for their lobster rolls and live music. They have great live reggae music on Sundays throughout the summer and a great sampling of live music throughout the year. The staff are exceptional.

Great atmosphere and live music the night we were there. Staff was very busy and attentive as they could be. Food was just okay, but it’s bar food. My husband moved the wings and my shrimp tacos were a good portion for only 2 tacos....Best fries I’ve had in a long time. No beers on tap.More

Unfortunately, we did not get to eat here. The evening we were going to have dinner, they only had one cook show up for work. They had a very limited menu. We felt really bad for Washout! But, we went back and had drinks and...listened to the live music. They loved us as much as we loved them.More

We went here for dinner and everyone had a great meal. My lobster roll was amazing and the kids enjoyed a burger and kids fingers. Waitress was fantastic and they have great local beers on tap and in can. Can’t wait to go back

If like flavorless food, I guess you may like this place. For vegetarians, the options are beyond limited. I ordered a side of cheese grits. A bowl of thick dry grits was topped with cold shredded cheese. i wanted to ask for butter to add...some flavor. Awful! My famil orderEd chicken nachos where chicken had no seasoning, and Maui tacos were pale and overloaded with cheese but nothing else. One might call it a bar place, but’s no ever on tap. The only descent thing was a cocktail one of us ordered. It was a terrible end to an amazing day at Folly beach.More

This was our last night at Folly Beach and we decided to eat here. Definitely NOT a good pick. Lobster roll and fries were fine. Crab cake sandwich was worst one we had on island. We sat inside so that it would be cooler. The...flies and gnats were horrible! Constantly swarming us and our food. Pick somewhere else!More
