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.

We never miss the surf bar while in Folly. The Pain killer drink is my fave. Don't miss out on the onion rings, tacos or the cool vibe. A must if at Folly.

Food was good and a good variety of beer. Your typical beach type spot to stop and have a bite, stop by and check it out

This restaurant was a huge surprise for us. It's off the main drag and clearly is a favorite for locals and not tourists. Much quieter than the restaurants on main street. We had the ahi tuna tacos which were out of this world. We sat...More

Bartender didn't judge me when I got PBR (because it's the best cheap beer) or when o ordered a freaking bunless veggie burger because I'm trying to be healthy. Awesome dive bar with cheap drinks and awesome food. Highly recommend! Manager, if you're reading this...More
