For a restaurant that has a top bill spot on the island, we weren't overly impressed with Rita's. This restaurant is right next to The Tides hotel. The hostesses were not welcoming, which set the tone for our dinner. We ordered the crab dip which was out of this world. However, the rest of the menu lacked personality. You basically... More

My friend and I visited this place for dinner. We were really surprised by the food and drinks. The Ribeye and flounder were delicious. Our waiter was Evan (whose name we learned only after receiving the check), after we got a table, we waited for him a little longer than usual. After we have made order, he gave our drinks... More

They also have some of the best fish tacos to boot as well with some yummy fries! Y'all gotta try this place.The patio outside is fun at lunch and romantic under... More

Folly Beach is a very eclectic and fun place to eat, with restaurants varying from true dives to fairly nice places. We went to Rita's for an early lunch, but decided their breakfast menu was more promising than their lunch menu, so they very kindly let us order from the breakfast menu. They were very busy and service around the... More

This was very disappointing. We went for Sunday brunch, or so we thought. They said there'd be a 15-minute wait. Once we were seated, we waited over 40 minutes! And we were told that brunch hours had ended at noon! The place was very noisy; the chairs uncomfortable. The coffee was good, the wait staff pleasant. Every so often, they'... More

Part of a larger conglomerate (Pearlz, etc.). Very nice atmosphere, classy outdoor patio, great service but average food.

Cold night out but the fire place out side was wonderful. Live music. The food was good. The taco's and black bean burger was very good.

I went with 7 of my girlfriends, can you say GIRLS ONLY TRIP!!!! We enjoyed our dinner here and all the cocktails to go with it. The nacho order... More

Went here for restaurant week. Very good food. My wife got the salmon and I got the shrimp and grits. Dessert was also good. Wait staff was attentive and very nice since it was very busy. We will go back.

We visited Rita's tonight as it was right across the road from our hotel. Our waitress seemed very sweet, although we couldn't hear her from the music being entirely too loud (the guy playing was awesome- just way too loud). My husband and I had the grouper sandwich which was fair, but I felt it was a little overpriced for... More
