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.

Food is okay. But I come here for music and alcohol! I also like how it is slightly hidden from all of the touristy crap. More of a locals hangout.
