I had such a great time here. Liberty was an amazing bartender and made sure we were well taken care of. The music and entertainment was the best on the beach. I would definitely come back again.

We were only in Folly Beach a few days, but we kept returning to the Surf Bar. The food on the small menu was delicious and a bargain! Great burgers! And the mojitos and pain killers are great drinks!

Ate here for the first time with family. Food was awesome. Philly cheesesteak is a must have. Will visit again. Kids enjoyed the food too.

If you like small casual relaxed bars with an opportunity to hear a local band and just hang out in your flip flops, this is the bar to go to. We stopped in for a quick drink and ended up staying for a couple hours. The mood is very chill and it's a non-frills type of place but it was... More

Took our dog for a meal on the patio one night of vacation. Onion rings were a great appetizer! Husband got the burger and said it was decent- I ordered Philly cheesesteak- a huge sandwich but very good! Casual atmosphere and good service.

Tuna tacos and beach wings are the best. Also the only place to get a good steak. I come back every time I am in town. Much Aloha!

This is a complete hole in the wall, but the food is particularly good for a bar. The onion rings are amazing. Ahi tuna tacos were great, as was the pulled pork special. Drinks are strong and served quickly.

We visited this bar twice during our annual pilgrimage to Folly: 1. On Saturday we were looking for a refuge from the blistering heat while the landlord belately cleaned our condo. We sat on the back deck of Surf Bar and cooled down with some good beer and drinks. It was very peasant, and our waitress was great. She welcomed... More

The food here is surprisingly good. I was expecting more fried bar food. I had a black bean burger that is made in house and it was delicious. My husband had the ahi tacos. Dog friendly!
