“Good times by all.”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

They only think I didn't like was paying $16.00 for a 1 mile cab ride. With tip it was $20.00. I was in a good mood. And they serve Rumplemintz! That's what's up.

“Fun beach bar.”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

The Surf Bar is located off of Center Street so their is no beach but it would fit very well on the oceanfront. Fun atmosphere, friendly crowd...many were locals. We didn't eat because we'd just had dinner at Bowens Island. Drinks were good ...we had fun. Looked like a very limited bar food menu though.

“Great Place, Great Food!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

This place has some great food, has a great bar scene, and great outdoor sitting. This is a great place to go with a big group of friends, have drinks, and eat some great food. They have a wood fire grill. and you can smell it from blocks away.

“Surf's up on Folly Beach”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Nice surprise on Folly Beach this great little bar. I went there on a late Saturday night just for a beer and stayed much longer, first listening to the live music band inside and then chatting with friends outside on the patio. I did not try the burgers, but I've heard they're awesome and I will come back to try one. A previous review here says that they don't have tap beer, but they actually have some goods ones and mine was. The decor with the surf boards on the ceiling and the TVs showing surf videos are great. If you come to Folly Beach, don't miss this bar!

“Favorite Folly Beach spot”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Our family loves to eat out in fancy places and dives. The is more of a dive but the vibe is great and the food is outstanding. Burgers are first class, steak and cheese beats anything I have ever eaten in Philly, friend fish sandwiches- YUM! Even the kids are happy. Also, do not forget to try the mojitos made with fresh squeezed lime juice. They go down easily! A Folly Beach MUST!
