Lost Dog Café

The Lost Dog Café closes early, so you better get there for breakfast or lunch. Their breakfast menu is the best in Folly Beach. If you are looking for Folly Beach pastries, this is the place. You can smell the bread and pastries before you enter the restaurant. The wait times are a bit longer than most other places but the food tastes fresh. This is usually because the place is packed and there are lots of orders to get out. I recommend getting their pancakes and a nice muffin. Top it off with their great coffee. The walls are adorned with dog pictures and quotes. The outside porch is very dog friendly.

Locklears has some decent seafood and best of all; it’s insanely close to the ocean. Locklears is located at the Folly Beach Pier. I recommend their crab soup and for the vegetarians, get the eggplant tower.

Folly Beach Crab Shack


Get some of the crab cakes and a beer. Now that’s a meal. Or you can get a bucket of snow crab legs and start cracking. There’s a nice ambiance in the crab shack. Seating inside and out. Always packed and lots of noise. It’s not the cleanest place but that’s the charm. This is a local hangout spot for locals.

If you’re not a seafood fan, Folly Beach has lots of alternatives like Mexican food or regular burgers. Check out Taco Boy for the fish tacos. They have a decent bar here too. The beef was a bit chewy for me, but there’s always chicken.

If you’re in the mood for pizza, go to Woody’s Pizza. The pizza is hand tossed and has toppings ranging from chicken to artichokes. The pizzas are huge in size. There are some delicious subs too if you’re not in the mood for pizza.

Lil Mama’s is another pizza shop with delicious pizza. In other pizza shops, you eat the pizza and dump the crust. At Lil Mama’s, the crust is like the dessert. Get some garlic hummus to dip your crust. Don’t like pizza? How about an amazing salad called the Lil Mama’s salad. It has greens, apples, bleu cheese, bacon bits, red onions and sunflower seeds.

You can enjoy an entire day just sampling the foods at these restaurants.
