We went to Rita's at the last minute on Christmas morning and got seated immediately. Service was great. My favorite was the Smoked Salmon Benedict - It was so good, my husband ate half of it! We look forward to going back soon.

Came in on a busy Saturday night. We were seated pretty quick. Drinks were quite a while in coming. Barbecue sandwich was awesome, fish tacos great. Chips and salsa,way overpriced and chips over done. Would recommend

Food was good. I had the fish tacos, definitely ask for Rita's sauce. Loud and crowded, but it was friday. Got dessert to go and when we got back to the hotel they had forgotten to put the chocolate and caramel drizzle on it. Wait staff was great. My sister got the shrimp and grits and she was not impressed,... More

It was an unseasonably warm day and we took the dog to Folly Beach for some fun. Afterwards we went to Rita’s patio for a couple of margaritas and an appetizer. We love Charleston’s dog friendly atmosphere. The margaritas are on crushed ice and very good. We got a burger for the dog. Our server was Coco and she brought... More

The fish sandwich was very fresh and delicious. Fries were crisp and seasoned well. My wife had the shrimp tacos, which again were fresh. There was... More

Decorated in a beach motif. It has a good cocktail list. I enjoyed an orange crush. The menu is diverse. I had smoked wings & a house salad. The wings were cooked well & were meaty. Only complaint was some of them had a thick skin. Salad was good & I adored the balsamic vinaigrette. I swear it is the... More

Return visit during the slow season meant no wait, The ambiance is beach and contemporary. Wendy our server was on top of it. The smoked bacon and shrimp soup was very good. The burgers were good with a good bun and the ribs were good falling off the bone. The wedge salad is improved with real bacon bits and not... More

his is a fine place to eat on Folly Beach. The service is not great. We arrived before it got too busy for lunch and the hostesses looked at us, a family of four, like we were bothering them. They hardly greeted us, looked like they would rather be anywhere but there. Once we were seated, we were ignored for... More
