Local Expert Tip: "When reserving a table at Folk's Folly, be sure to ask for a spot in one of the smaller dining rooms. The largest room, while certainly comfortable, lacks intimacy and is best for business-style get-togethers. "

Local Expert Tip: "This family owned restaurant keeps family hours, closing at 8:30 on weekdays and 9:30 on weekends - so plan accordingly."
