Over the past 4 years, we have been to Folly Beach 5 times. This is our favorite restaurant here. Solid seafood selection at a reasonable price. Better margaritas for the price than Taco Boys.

The Folly Beach Shrimp Company was a last minute decision because we decided we wanted something more then pizza. The four of us went in with low expectations because of the mentality "you get what you pay for" after looking at the menu and prices, it was priced so cheap. Were we ever in for a surprise! We were there on a Friday night in November, the off season, and there were about four other tables seated and a few patrons at the bar. You grab a menu and seat yourself where ever you want. The server took a little while to greet us and we almost got up to leave right before she came over. (Note to servers, if you're busy just take a few seconds to stop by and say that, it goes a long way.) She turned out to provide very good service.
The food far exceeded our expectations! All four meals were very good, a couple of us said it was the best meal of our whole trip to Charleston/Savannah. We are from Maryland so whenever we travel we always compare crab cakes to what we get back in Maryland and all I can say is these were the best crab cakes i have ever had outside of MD! One little side note, the drinks were STRONG! Very heavy pours, not really a complaint, just a warning.
At the end our server recommended a place in Charleston called HUSK. She said the FBSC chef trained under the chef from HUSK. By pure accident we parked in a garage in Charleston and when we walked out, there was HUSK. It was a no brainer lunch would be at HUSK and it was great!

The Crab Burger and Shrimp Burger we ate was possibly the best we have ever had. We have ate seafood up and down the east coast and the food here was excellent. The atmosphere was great and service very good.

This was definitely a poor choice if you have a taste for good shrimp, despite the name of the restaurant. We figured they would have wonderful tasting shrimp, boy were we wrong. My husband ordered the buffalo shrimp, for an appetizer and he said it was extremely spicy. For his meal he ordered the low country boil, he said it was extremely bland and the sausage was the only thing with flavor.The shrimp was also undercooked. I don't eat seafood, so I ordered the club and my french fries were cold. Our server was really bad she got my husbands beer order wrong and never refilled our drinks. There were only a few people in the restaurant so it wasn't like she was super busy. Next time we are in folly we will not go here.

Since they tout themselves as a Shrimp Company , one would think the fish expecially would be very fresh however it was not! I ordered a Sangria that was cloudy and watered down which was not a good sign of things to come. I ordered the shrimp dip which tasted old and the shrimp were just not fresh having that ammonia taste to them. I also ordered the fried shrimp entree which again some shrimp were ok and others had a bad taste to them. I was very sick the night we ate there and don't know if it was down to the drink or shrimp but won't return. What happened to the Center Street restaurant that this replaced? It was so much better!
