From The Edge
What Do Hawaii and Folly Beach Have in Common?
Beautiful beaches. Solid surf (we dig our small, rideable waves). A laidback, slower pace. Palm trees and pineapple worship. A collaborative spirit – and a warm, inviting energy the South calls hospitality… Hawaii calls aloha spirit… and we call Wiki Wiki Sandbar.
Hawaiian for “fast” and American slang for group-created, “Wiki” epitomizes the can-do, we’re-all-in-this-together spirit of the people of Folly Beach, Hawaii, and the team at Wiki Wiki Sandbar.
Wiki Wiki Sandbar is our love letter to Folly Beach – a quintessential celebration space that’s nice enough to take your Grandma for her birthday, and chill enough for a friend-filled Sunday Rumday complemented by delicious Hawaiian Cuisine.
Our mid-century modern restaurant and bar come to life in five distinct spaces – from a rooftop Tiki Bar to a private dining space made for pre-parties, after-parties, and every party in between – and is filled with handcrafted art by some of our favorite artists.
Our food and drink are reflections of both our travels – to Hawaii and West Coast Hawaiian barbecue joints – and our beloved Southern roots. In exploring the delicious similarities between traditional Hawaiian plate lunches and the South’s meat-and-three, we’ve crafted a menu that we hope celebrates and honors both cultures.
Think slow-cooked meats, like Kalua pork, with sides like rice, macaroni salad, greens, and root vegetables. Think Spam sliders, in honor of Hawaii’s obsession with Spam and our ode to delicious Hawaiian party food. Think authentic Hawaiian poke made from fresh-caught fish. Think pineapple Dole Whip, our take on a soft-serve style treat.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Folly or Hawaii without some serious attention to handcrafted libations. In a phrase: there will be rum. And fresh fruit. And tropical inspiration. And creative Southern-Hawaiian Fusion. And the most delicious elements that we could pull from Hawaii and the South, all combined to bring you the best of both worlds. Why aren’t you here yet?
We look forward to seeing you!
