We were vacationing in Folly from Maryland. We were a bit apprehensive to try a seafood restaurant, but were extremely pleased. The food tasted great. The service was amazing. It had something for all of us. Just an all around great experience.

We had a party of 7 and called ahead for reservations. Everyone enjoyed the seafood. The wait staff were friendly and efficient. This restaurant is walking distance from Tides Hotel.
