I love dive bars, diner-style burgers & fries, crusty old locals, townies & barflies, no-frills watering holes & local colour. If you, like me, enjoy & appreciate all of these things, then you will be right at home at Planet Follywood on Folly Beach. You might even catch a whiff of gossip or campaigning in here, which is worth exponentially... More

I cannot really describe Planet Follywood. It is like a bar, an entertainment venue, a restaurant, a local gathering spot, a tourist attraction, an art experience (you did look outside I hope). It is small, but its effect on you is big since you are in close proximity to all of the above at once in an avalach of stimuli.... More

Another "don't- judge-a-book-by-it's-cover" places. A local hangout and it is small but the burgers are great! They have a wide variety of food and do run specials

DO NOT GET THE NACHOS!!! If you do, you'll be very disappointed. Seemed as though they used regular shredded cheese and then threw it in the microwave. I'm telling you, it's not what you'd be expecting. Also, don't let the word JUMBO fool you as far as the wings are concerned, as they are the opposite of that. It's safe... More

A great dive bar to visit while on vacation! A really long, narrow space with nothing fancy about it. But, it does have good tunes, great people watching and cheap drinks! We closed this place down twice during our weekend stay and had a great time during both visits!

We had to eat here because we arrived into town late and it was one of the only choices for dinner that was till open for take out. I had a chicken sandwich that came right from the freezer. Food was tasteless and nothing special.

Burgers were big, juicy, and tasty! Sides were also very good; esp pasta salad. Atmosphere is fun and funky, BUT smoking allowed, so be prepared. However..We waited for quite a while on a not busy Sunday eve for service..to the point we were about to ask the bartender to take our orders. Band was WAY too loud for the small... More

My wife and I grabbed dinner here one night and weren't disappointed. I was concerned when I asked what kind of soda they had and the waitress explained it's not Coke, Pepsi, or RC it's some supply brand. We had it anyways, me with the lemon-lime and my wife with the cola. The lemon-lime was somewhere between Sprite & Sierra... More

We took the kids here on spring break and ate on the back patio. It was pretty rustic but the food was delicious and portions size was generous. Be sure to try the pickle spears that come as a garnish with the burgers. The waiter said they were made local and when I said how much we liked them he... More
