THE FOLK'S FOLLY STORY BEGAN IN 1977 WITH UNCONVENTIONAL ORIGINS, AS THE BEST STORIES OFTEN DO. 

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.
