Folk's Folly Prime Steak House
Native son Humphrey Folk, Jr. was a prominent and shrewd developer, whose hard work carried him all over the country, cultivating his sincere appreciation of food and fine wine.
Undaunted by a complete lack of restaurant or culinary experience, he decided to convert a quaint and intimate house into a small eatery. His peers offered little encouragement, so he added the word “folly” to his own name, and Memphis’ Original Prime Steak House was born.
With only a gentleman's handshake to signify agreement, Humphrey Folk welcomed famed Memphis restaurateur Thomas Boggs as managing partner of Folk's Folly in 2003.
This partnership built the bridge to the next generation and Folk's Folly Prime Steak House remains a family affair.

Classy local restaurant with excellent steaks and service. Love the bar lounge!
The service and the food was extraordinary. We went for dinner on my wife’s birthday weekend. We couldn’t have been any happier with the food, the service and the ambiance. If you find yourself in Memphis and want an excellent meal, this is your place!
I love everything about this place, from my waitress to my food .The cocktails are awesome especially the key lime cocktail
Had a great time! Food was great! Perfect place to go for a special occasion. It really felt special.
This was the absolute BEST steak I’ve ever had!! The twice baked potato and the asparagus were great as well!
Food is delicious
Always great food and service! I love how you can “come as you are”. Unlike Ruth Chris where you have to be dressed a certain way.
Absolutely amazing! With all of the uncertainty going on right now in the world, Folks Folly was a delight! They made my birthday extra special! They are implementing all necessary precautions! From start to finish everything was perfect! Thanks for a great night!
We always enjoy coming to a Folks Folly. The food is always excellent and the service
Is wonderful. I will recommend going there to all our friends and family!
Sarah was the absolute best. The food was amazing. Definitely a must for a good date night.
I look forward to becoming a regular. The food was amazing and so was the service.
Everything was delicious!
We have been here many times and have never had a meal that wasn't outstanding.
Worth every penny, the food & service was the best. Will be back.
Hands down the best cut of filet around the area. Everything was delicious and the service never disappoints
We visited for my son’s 19th birthday. It was his 1st time to dine here. Here loved it!
Excellent atmosphere for anniversary dinner with my wife. Great service and incredible food.
Been coming here for awhile, but tonight was just awful from start to finish. Hope things get back to normal soon
Food was fabulous, as usual. Our server, Corinne was also great, as usual. She is always very knowledgeable about the menu and special items and her service is just right!!
Wonderful as always. Great service, great food, great place.
Always a great experience!
Perfect steaks as always. I also love the She-crab Soup and Garlic Potato Casserole.
I really enjoyed my dinner at Folk's Folly. The staff that served us was very helpful, friendly and professional. The service was so good, we made another reservation.
Great food and service!! It never disappoints!!
Amazing staff. Amazing food. Amazing experience.
Food and service were great as always. The restrictions imposed due to Covid were observed strictly (appreciate that) but did quell the ambiance.
Great evening and we will be back.
One of Memphis' best steak houses in the past 40 years
Music too loud. Manager too energetic for atmosphere.
Food and service is always great. No waiting on table was seated immediately.
First I must say that I have always loved folks Fally, the service and the food has always been top notch.
However during this visit( for Father’s Day ) service was more than lacking , side dish portions seem uncharacteristically small and my bone-in ribeye steak super small .
Let’s hope they get their act together !
Father’s Day was perfection!
The food and service was excellent . However there was a sign on the door that said if you are short of breath don’t come in. I realize this pertains to Covid but I have pulmonary fibrosis plus other health issues that cause me to be short of breath and has nothing to do with Covid. That is actually discrimination. Lots of people have respiratory issues that are not Covid related. Wearing a mask is detrimental to our health.
Came for our annual Father’s Day celebration. Sarah took wonderful care of us. Food and service were exceptional as always!
The service was awesome, the vibe was great. You definitely get a lot of food!
Excellent food! The decor is oddly outdated but the food makes up for it!
18th wedding Anniversary
Great in every way!
Our waitress Shaunna was amazing and fun to be served by and our food was outstanding. Thanks for making our date night a great evening.
