Probably my favorite place on Folly. Excellent food, great prices, and cheap drinks. The vibe in there is laid back and fun. I had the tuna tacos. Fresh and tasty. My son had the wings and they were done perfectly.

The Surf Bar is a cool, totally casual place for quick bites (nothing fancy, bar food only) and cold drinks. We made the most of the outdoor fireplace on a chilly spring night with ice cold beers and good friends.

This bar is a block off the Main Street of Folly Beach but glad we found it. They have a limited menu but they do it right. The server was very personable & it was an overall pleasant experience.

Made this our first stop in Charleston; so glad we did. The perfect place to relax and unwind. My burger was one of the best I've ever eaten, and my husband LOVED their wings. Drinks were cold, prices were right, and we'd definitely go back.

We love going to Surf Bar after a long day at the beach for some beer and food. Consistently good food which is great. The crowd seems to be more local than tourist which is also a plus in our book. I love how they...More
