Great onion rings!

Not a bad burger joint. Service was good and onion rings rocked! Burgers were good sized and had some unique combinations. Will be back here for sure.

Great place to stop for a bite. Parking is a challenge, especially during the lunch rush. About the only place that serves a burger big enough to satisfy my 13 year-old's appetite. Have already returned again and plan to whenever in the area.

Always a great burger with generous sides and a decent beer selection. Family atmosphere except on game days. It is a college town. The Edisto is my favorite burger on the menu.

This restaurant exceeded all expectations. I was very impressed by the quality of the meat and also the different combination of burgers they have. I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone!

We stopped on our way from Charlotte to Charleston. We saw this on Diners, Drive ins, and Dives. We sat on the deck outside. It was a nice, relaxed atmosphere. The burgers were good (but my husband and son thought it could be seasoned more with salt and pepper). The crawfish appetizer was very good. The kids all liked it.... More

We first visited this restaurant on Mother's Day Sunday in 2012. Our daughter found it on TripAdvisor and it came highly recommended, and had been visited by Guy Fieri. There is always a wait, because this is a popular restaurant, but it is worth it. On our most recent visit in April, 2015, the food was as good as ever,... More

Looked for a restaurant that was featured on the Food Network's Diners Driveins and Dives....this was a winner!

Had the Isle of Palms Burger.....freshly ground beef (seasoned), topped with pimento cheese with a touch of jalapenos...oh, did I forget the BACON...never...it was delicious! So glad... More
