The fried shrimp is the best I have tried on Folly Beach. My husband had the fried flounder and it was light, and flaky, cooked to perfection! The hush puppies had just a hint of sweetness that made them delicious! Love sitting out on the screened in deck! We will be back again to dine at this outstanding restaurant!!

We were looking for a good local seafood place. I read the reviews from here & thought maybe we found a gem. I like fried food especially seafood, but it just wasn't that good & definitely not worth the price ($97 for 3 people). You are required to pay with cash, and they have an ATM at the door if...

The service got me first; I should have left when the cashier wouldn't stop filing her nails when we ordered. I felt like my family was intruding on her time. "Cash Only", she said. Then, the most important part....... the food all tasted the same. The clams, scallops, chicken, and whiting all tasted the same, and the fries were just... More

If you don't mind the rough feel to the place, like you are on a fishing boat go ahead! This is a great atmosphere for you. That is one thing that I do like that your food match the atmosphere of the place. You aren't too far from the ocean, most food is freshly caught, so I was told, except... More

We found this restaurant about 3 years ago while traveling over to Folly Beach. We noticed it and were unable to stop at the time, so we went back and were able to stop in and eat. This is a small place with limited seating and looked a little rundown. But, that old saying that we know as "don't judge... More

If you are looking for fried seafood and maybe just a burger this is a great place. Basic fried seafood at a very good price. I usually get the shrimp and oysters. Both are excellent. But their she crab soup is the best. They don't always have it but when they do its delicious. I prefer it to Hyman's she... More

If you are looking for fine cuisine, keep on cruising. This place specializes in low budget deep fried meals served on disposable dishes. The servings are generous but as others have suggested it all tastes pretty much the same. Except the canned beans taste like the can. But you can eat on the porch and listen to the waves and...

We drove over fromCharleston to find a seafood restaurant for dinner. Most places were packed & had no view. We came across this place & decided to stop bc it had great reviews. All in all an ok place. The crab cake was not very good. The white fish was ok. My husband said his shrimp was just ok as... More

The food was very good--fried shrimp were battered well, not too heavy breading. Prices are much more reasonable than some other nearby seafood spots on Folly. And you get a ton of food so it is possible to even share an entree, depending on how hungry you are. Service is quick but very pleasant. My only advice against the Sandcastle,... More
