Folk’s Folly delivers a dining experience second to none. Their steaks are the epitome of what every steak should be. The waitstaff are seasoned professionals and we didn’t want for anything. A tip... sides are large enough to share, so be careful not to over...More

Great place - always a must when I'm in Memphis. Great concept that other top tier restaurants could learn from - prevalent, private dinning rooms for parties of 2 and more. The chops are incredible and so is the service. Worthily in all accounts!

Jackets are not necessary. Business casual is appropriate unless you have a special event.
