Surf Bar is not fancy and not for everyone! It is a VERY casual restaurant and bar but it has a huge local flair! Surf videos play on the TVs and dollar bills signed by visitors and stapled to cover the walls. We love to go for a beer or margarita and eat the wings. All three flavors are excellent!!!... More

Hang out with the locals. Order a painkiller cocktail. Put your name on $1 and staple it to the wall. Food was amazing and prices are reasonable. Will definitely be back

I had such a great time here. Liberty was an amazing bartender and made sure we were well taken care of. The music and entertainment was the best on the beach. I would definitely come back again.

We were only in Folly Beach a few days, but we kept returning to the Surf Bar. The food on the small menu was delicious and a bargain! Great burgers! And the mojitos and pain killers are great drinks!

Ate here for the first time with family. Food was awesome. Philly cheesesteak is a must have. Will visit again. Kids enjoyed the food too.

If you like small casual relaxed bars with an opportunity to hear a local band and just hang out in your flip flops, this is the bar to go to. We stopped in for a quick drink and ended up staying for a couple hours. The mood is very chill and it's a non-frills type of place but it was... More

Took our dog for a meal on the patio one night of vacation. Onion rings were a great appetizer! Husband got the burger and said it was decent- I ordered Philly cheesesteak- a huge sandwich but very good! Casual atmosphere and good service.

Tuna tacos and beach wings are the best. Also the only place to get a good steak. I come back every time I am in town. Much Aloha!
