Rita's is overpriced and doesn't have a good menu selection. This was our least favorite place to eat during our stay at Folly Beach. Didn't like the atmosphere and the seating is horrible. The staff is slow and not very attentive although there were only 5 other people in restaurant at the time of our visit.

It's located in the main commercial area of Folly Beach across from the pier. There is indoor and out door seating areas. The food was good and plentiful. Service was excellent. It was crowded but the wait was short.

We had dinner one night and had the greatest time. Started out with a table we didn't care for and Greg got us with the manger Brandon and all was good in minutes. Our server Eve was awesome, fun and knowledgeable. The food was excellent. We were back for some late night music another night and for a fun brunch... More

After spending the day on Folly Beach, we decided to eat at Rita's, which was recommended by my daughter's college friend. We were seated right away and our server Brittany was very helpful and personable. Our drink order was taken and then our food order. Everything was very good and the service was excellent. The employees seem to enjoy working... More

There are some good places to eat in Folly Beach and Rita's is at the top, Great service, good food, and fair prices. Don't come for the entertainment as the vocalist ~~ no talent but he tries harder than the guy at the crab place with less talent.

When in Folly you MUST go to Rita's! I wasn't expecting much more then a beach bar and grill in the way of great food to be honest but walking by I just had to see what the fun and all the laughter was about so I stepped in and was very pleasantly delighted by a great staff, a fun... More

Service was good and good was good. Menu lacked choices but what everyone ordered was good. Wait times will vary, however we did notice a couple "locals and friends" of the staff being sat before people that was on the wait list . Other than that it was good

We came in on a Friday and had Alayna as our sever and had awful service. We saw her as she took our order and then at the end to drop our check. We decided that we would likely not return. On Saturday every other restaurant had over an hour wait and Rita's could seat us right away so we... More

Curb appeal is decent, walking in to the indoor seating is nothing special. After looking at the menu and plates around us, didn't go for the entrees, pretty pricy. Grabbed some chips and drinks, decent but not worth the price. Driving back to Kiawah we decided we could have saved the time and money and ate better at our villa.... More

My food was so undercooked that it was inedible. I complained to the manager, Erin, and she came over, so friendly and professional, and she fixed everything right away! They sent out a brand new plate right away which was cooked to perfection! Erin had the nicest disposition and the willingness to go above and beyond for a small customer... More
