Folly Beach Restaurant and Bar Reopens on Folly Beach Pier | News Radio 94.3 WSC

FOLLY BEACH, SC (WCSC) – After being closed for two years due to renovations, the Pier 101 Restaurant and Bar on the Folly Beach Pier is now open.

Pier 101 closed after Labor Day 2020. General Manager Halee Brinson says she’s excited to be back before spring with some new features.

“We have a lot of locals coming back to see us, and a lot of people from out of town are already hearing that we’re back and coming to see us,” Brinson said. “The map has changed. We have new cocktails, we have new dishes. The bar is brand new. We’re bringing live music back, so Saturdays and Sundays we’ll have a band.

The Folly Beach pier is still closed, but Sarah Reynolds of the Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission says it should be complete and open by spring 2023.

Reynolds says the project is expected to cost $14.3 million and they are still on budget. Reynolds says a lot of work has been completed on the diamond bullhead and steel construction of the new gazebo has recently begun.

Construction of the pier began in October 2020. The gift shop and observation deck have been open to the public since May. Pier 101 will be open Friday and this weekend from noon to 8 p.m.
