Every single time we come out to Folly, Rita's is always our first stop. The tuna nachos are out of this world. Great burgers and salads. I have never eaten anything here that I haven't liked or wanted more of. Great prices , very friendly staff, and fantastic drinks. This place is great no matter what time of day you... More

Rita's has a great atmosphere and a in vibe, but the food is very overpriced. We ended up paying over $100 for the two of us (granted we did get the king crab), but it still seemed quite a bit for what we received. Our service was excellent. Next time, I may just go for a drink or two, but... More

Rita's is a nice place right near the beach. We only stopped in for appetizers and drinks but the food was very good. The service was fast & friendly. They have live music in the afternoon and you can sit outside to just relax & enjoy.

We went to Ritas on a Sunday for brunch but missed it by 1/2hr (they only serve brunch til noon on weekends), so we got lunch instead. The Bloody Mary's were just ok but the food was good. I had fish tacos which are blackened shrimp and the fish of the day which happened to be mahi. They were very... More

WE go to Rita's on a regular basis, but it seems that its popularity gets to it. he wait times get longer and longer and often despite open seats, patrons are not seated as there are not enough waiters - we had that 6 weeks ago and again last week. Once seated the first "water and drinks " service works... More

Rita's has an awesome outdoor patio area and great musicians play there regularly. The food is good, but a little pricey, especially for families since the children's menu is somewhat limited. The tuna nachos are amazing!

Right in downtown Folly Beach across from the Folly Pier. The food was good but service was slow, almost seemed chaotic. It was busy but they should be used to that based on location (IMHO). Affordable prices , clean, good food. Parking can be tough based on the proximity to the beach and depending on how busy the beach is!... More

Made our stop to Folly Beach amazing. The beach is great but you can't beat this place to put it over the top with amazing mojitos, tuna nachos and live music. Dallas Baker & Friends was jamming out like a modern-day Sun Studios session. Awesome.

I had the crab cake sandwich, which was full of crab meat! My son had the fried shrimp and he enjoyed them too. Would recommend and hope to return! Definitely get... More
