Very Well Cooked

Have used Ed's the last 2 years for carry out crabs. Very friendly and crabs well seasoned and cooked. Crabs are expensive but who can remember when they were cheap... Really!

On advice from some locals, we discovered Ed's years ago. We go for the hushpuppies but stay for the fresh seafood. Always local, always fresh. Good food at a good price.

Food tasted fresh. Prices were not terrible, depending on menu selection. Atmosphere is ok. You order at an outdoor window and you can choose to sit inside a room with a few tables in the AC or outside at the picnic tables. We chose the shade. There is a sign on the door asking to please close the door behind... More

While the bread on the crab cake sandwiches suck, the cakes themselves are good, the chicken great, and the crab soup fantastic. Avoid lunchtime on the weekends for longish lines.

this has a great location with reasonable prices. Very often the food is still cold in the middle especially when purchasing the crab cake sandwich or hush puppies . Several times we have tried this place trying to give it yet one more chance more often than not the food isn't properly heated through . We've had the chicken and... More

Food here is good, however the prices are very high. Seating is outside which is fine as long as there is no rain. Staff was nice and the service was fast. This place can get crowded during peak summer season and summer hours.

The seafood was fairly good, but the chicken was dry and tough. The staff was friendly, but the place is a little hole in the wall. Great cole slaw!

Been eating here all my life. I think it's delicious. However, competing with the flies outside is tough. Lots of noise on rt. 1. Conditions are less than sanitary. Dirty community sink to wash your hands in. Prices are extremely high, in fact, much higher than they should be. Portions are small too. Parking is limited. Go, but don't expect... More

Ed's is open for the season and this no frills restaurant is one of our favorites. Great Food and service. Sure wish they would get a liquor license. A cold beer would go great with the food!

This place is a dress as you are......RELAXED! Nothing fancy just good food at a good price. I always get the spiced steamed scrimp. My friend always get the chicken (they don't like seafood), and they say it is good. Try it sometime. Again, don't dress up......go as you are! The picnic tables await for you.
