Folk's was recommended by a friend and that was good enough for us - but she undersold it. We got there without reservations and were met by the lounge bartender who offered us seating in the lounge - indicating also that they had live piano music coming up. The food was great (pricey - but not unexpectedly so) - The... More

For those needing a small intimate room for business dinners - this place offers great chops with comparable setting, several small room settings/rooms for special nights or business dinners. The food is the a top option for a Memphis chophouse.

Had an amazing time with my brother Reau, he came out at dinner. The piano was just beautiful. But the STEAK... the plate cooks it for you. Just a wonder time and creme fraiche just "wow"

Be prepared to lay down some bucks in order to feast on what may be the best steaks you ever ate. Quality white table cloth environment with waiters who compliment the culinary expertise of some of the best chefs anywhere. Quaint and romantic, it is the ultimate date or business dinner. All the way around, this upper crust eating establishment... More

I attended a wedding rehearsal in the private room and it was simply amazing. First the decorations that the host put out looked very elegant. But the meal was the best meal I had ever eaten in a restaurant. And the portions were enough for lunch the next day. This was the second time I had eaten here and both... More

Came here with some coworkers on our first night in Memphis. You gotta have the steak, the sides come family style. The food was certainly good but the prices are a little hard on the wallet, you are looking at at least $200-$300 for 2-3 people. Save this one for special occasions unless you are charging to the company like... More

On vacation and wanted a good steak. We chose Folk's Folly partially due to ratings and partially to location. We had a filet and king crab legs. Both of those were great. Steak was cooked just right and had lots of flavor and was very tender. My wife chose crab legs and she reports that they were also wonderful. We... More

Decided to go after football game and was impressed. We were in shorts and collared shirt and it was no problem. French onion soup was very good. Makers Mark Medallions were excellent as was the strip and rib eye. Jalapeño Mac and cheese was great. Cheesecake and chocolate brownie were perfect end to the night. It is pricey, but worth...
