Folly Beach Eats

Step off the sand for cool drinks and ringside seats for people-watching galore.

The sun inevitably sets on Folly’s long summer days. Locals typically head to Sunset Cay Marina on Folly’s backside to sip a cold one as they watch the sun dip behind sailboats on the river, but there are multiple venues for watching the evening sky turn crimson-pink. Folly’s sole beachfront venue is BLU Beach Bar & Grill with a deck extending behind the Tides Folly Beach hotel and overlooking the pier. Though the sun physically sets behind you, it still refracts quite the light show as you nibble on basil-tomato flatbreads, fried shrimp dipped in Thai chili sauce, or crab cake sliders with your cocktail of choice.

Open Sunday-Thursday, 11 a.m.-10:30 p.m., & Friday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-midnight. 1 Center St., (843) 588-6464,
