I looked up restaurants on google and it said this was one of the best. We were staying at the Tides hotel so it wasn't but a few blocks from there. It was really good. I had shrimp and scallops and they were cooked just right. My husband had the whole flounder and it was huge but it must have been good because all I saw was bones when he finished. Really fun atmosphere.

We stopped in Folly Beach's Crab Shack, and had a great lunch. I was very impressed with their Crabby Mary, which came with a Snow Crab leg as a garnish! Their Mahi Mahi basket was one of their lunch specials, and was very good. Jack had a Palmetto lager and their Calabash basket. Beachy atmosphere, good food, and a nice beer selection.

Thanks so much for your review! The Crabby Mary was our way of taking a classic Bloody Mary and giving it a Crab Shack twist. Crab legs & Bloody Mary's are amazing together. So glad that you were able to enjoy our two for 20.14 deal, we do that every January to show our appreciation for our loyal guests! Thanks again & we hope to see you again soon! Ron Hill

The "SHACK" on Folly knocked one out of the ballpark as the catfish bites appetizer along with whole fried flounder were "DELISH" Keep up the good work.

This food was so good and our waitress was outstanding that we just ate ourselves silly! The bloody mary bar was super yummy and crazy cheap...I had two. My brother-in-law has never waited tables and always runs the wait staff ragged to the point of table embarrassment. I am pleased to report that our gal was polite and very accommodating to his every ridiculous request and "emergency" need. I have seen many eye rolls and deep sighs from other servers when he gets cranked up!
Make sure to check Yelp because this place offered a free crab dip when you checked in with the app. Yummo...and free!

The staff is always friendly and helpful at this place. The prices are OK and the food terrific! I had the shrimp and grits, which was delectable! My wife had a crab cake and a cup of she-crab soup: delicious! Good beer selection, too!
