The steaks are good, and the rest of the food is okay too. The waitresses are all older than God, and rather cavalier about the service they provide. Still it's somewhat overpriced, but would be worth it if they lived up to the price. But the people of Memphis (generally speaking) are unsophisticated regarding restaurants, and they have no idea what fine dining is. Hell, they think Red Lobster is the best seafood i... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
I have been dining at Folk's Folly for the last 11 years with my family. I recently had dinner there and had probably the best experience ever! The service was outstanding and the staff could not have been more fantastic ....from the great greetings from the guys outside to the smiling faces at the front door. I've noticed a remarkable improvement with the consistancy and overall service! Keep up the good work!Like this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
I read the posted reviews and it seemed like there was not a consensus. But I went because I love steak. It was as good as anything I have EVER eaten. cooked perfectly, very pleasant staff, unique suroundings (it's in an old house).

I've noticed a DEFINITE improvement in food and service since Thomas Boggs (who also owns Hueys) purchased this restaurant from the original owners. On a recent visit I tried Crab cakes which were GREAT and had a perfectly cooked filet (oh and a PERFECT Dirty Martini...). Prices are still high...but not any higher than other Steak Houses of this genre. Just wish I could afford to go more often!Like this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch

We ordered our steaks ""medium / medium rare"", but they came back charred on the outside and red on the inside. The service was lacking for those prices also. I found Side Porch to have fabulous steaks at less than half the price of Folly's. If these guys can stay in business all these years and serve bad ... view moreLike this review?Yes|Flag AbuseProvided by Citysearch
