Fifteen minutes south of historic downtown Charleston, Surf Bar welcomes locals and visitors alike with tasty food, cold beverages, chill surf films and the best live music on Folly Beach. Enjoy one of our crazy-popular cheese-steak sandwiches or a wood-fire grilled 1/2lb burger. Sip on Surf Bar’s signature Painkillers, or enjoy a fresh Mojito after a day at the beach. Our popular year-round music features local, regional and nationally touring acts three or four days a week, and admission is always free.

Surf Bar has been voted “Best Folly Beach Bar” eight consecutive years in the Charleston City Paper’s “Best of Charleston.”  We’re proud to have been included in both Garden and Gun and Southern Living’s “50 Best Bars in the South.”  Outside Magazine tabbed us in the “Best Adventure Bars in the South.”


We are thrilled to announce that we were once again chosen “Best Folly Beach Bar” in the Charleston City Paper’s Best of Charleston 2017!  We want to thank you for your continued support, and look forward to seeing you soon on Folly Beach!
