On our first day at Folly Beach we were directed to the Crab Shack by guests we met in the elevator. And what an excellent suggestion it was.

We chose to eat at the Folly Beach Crab Shack the night we arrived in James Island. It turned out to be the favorite meal of the entire trip according to all 5 members of the family. The food is local and fantastic.
