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.

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!
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 The decor is oddly outdated but the food makes up for it!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.
Fantastic meal and wine
Everything was spectacular from start to finish including the nice touch with the accommodations for the birthday. Very pleased.
Thank you for a lovely evening
The food quality and taste were excellent! The steaks came out sizzling on the plate and had a wonderful flavor. They were also cooked just as ordered. In addition, we had she crab soup which was very good. I highly recommend Folk's Folly Prime Steak House!
Excellently very up scale restaurant, I would change any...
Lovely meal. The filet was one of the best steaks I have had- flavorful and tender. Our server Greg was great. Perfect evening.
Service was amazing!
Sister going away dinner
we will not be back anytime soon, first and last trip in this lifetime and that is not likely to change. thanks for the inquiry.
The best place in Memphis to get a steak and to celebrate special occasions.
The food was amazing. The waitress was so helpful. The manager came out to say hi. Everyone was so nice. I
It is always one of my favorite restaurants in Memphis and it never disappoints! That’s why we keep coming back! Love it!
Celebrated my daughters birthday. Everything was wonderful and came out nice and hot.
Food was amazing and our waiter was very knowledgeable. Would definitely go back again
Always nice to get personal attention, be greeted by GM at the table. Food and service were perfect! The c at that we get the table we wanted was a plus!
Everything was great with the exception of the misleading if the price for surf and turf. We were giving the impression that it was a combo but we were charged individually for each one.
It was fantastic to go to a restaurant - a family favorite! It is always spectacular! Because of Covid-19, this outing was more special as it was our first outing since the pandemic. As always, Diane and her wonderful staff took the best of care of us!
Thanks you Folk’s Folly. A quick business dinner and social time was perfect. From all of your bar staff, to your hostess’s, our server and his assistants, and your chef and kitchen staff knocked it out of the park tonight. Social distancing and all, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening with y’all. Thank you.
We were there for our anniversary and it was our first visit. The staff were all very friendly and appropriately abiding by current safety standards. I found the decor lacking warmth and not very inviting. The most memorable part was the excellent steaks. And for that alone we will return.
Great! Rose is an amazing server and the food is fabulous!
Well done as always, Folk’s Folky!
Great as usual!!!!!!
Loved it great food
