On my last visit to Rita's we got take out. This time we were having a "walking" dinner around Folly, stopping in different restaurants and splitting different dishes and appetizers. Here we had the crab dip and fresh oysters on the half shell. My husband claimed the oysters were delicious and well prepared, the crab dip was yummy as well.... More

Stopped here for lunch. Ate outside. Nothing fancy about this place. I had brisket sandwich. It was just ok. Tasty, but fatty. Friend had fish tacos. Good! Had GREAT waiter named Davidson. He was the best part of lunch!

Excellent Pina Coladas made with fresh ingredients and their secret mix. During the Summer, very good breakfasts - they only serve them on the weekends after Labor Day.

Waited 1 hour and 15 minutes for our breakfast after we ordered. Fun atmosphere, but don't go here if you are looking for a quick breakfast.

I had the wings, just b b q sauce, not too spicy, dipping sauces were great. Topped my meal off with a Black Cherry Lemonade Crush, so cool and refreshing. The day we were there a live band was playing outside on the patio. Service was very good and our waiter was funny and quite helpful with our meal selections.

Went there twice. First day we had a bbq sandwich which was great, the second day we had hummus which was so-so. Both times we had fun just sitting around and taking in the atmosphere.

This restaurant was within view of our balcony of the condo we were renting for the week. Each day they were grilling barbecue on their barbecue trailer grill out back of the restaurant. I could smell it so we had to try it for dinner. We ate outside in their patio area. Very nice atmosphere. Nothing fancy just tables and... More

We ate a late dinner at Rita's on our recent vacation to Folly Beach. I thought the fish nachos were delicious, but I did not eat the chips, just the toppings. Others in my group said the chips were too salty and made the dish hard to eat. I loved the watermelon salsa which I thought gave a light and... More

Ordered steak medium rare with fried shrimp--$44 on the menu, steak came out well done. Server was happy to take the steak back and promised to make it right. Was informed that the manager would come out to fix it. After waiting more that 30 minutes and after everybody else at the table had finished their meals, the manager came... More

This is a great place for burgers, local seafood, great drinks. You can listen to someone sing on the weeknights, watch a game at the bar, or just talk quietly. Fun to eat outside, as it's much more quiet than inside. Love this place.
