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...

This was one of the most memorable (in a very good way!) dining experiences we've ever had. We chose Folks Folly because of both Yelp reviews and local Memphis dining guides. Our server, Norma, was charming and an excellent server. We'd also had the pleasure of being visited twice by the manager, Carlos, whom we also found to be very... More
