Fresh seafood

Food was nicely prepared and we were served quickly. They have daily specials as well as menu items. I had oysters fried and they were cooked perfectly. Sides are pretty basic.

The menu at The Waterfront has enough variety that a seafood non-eater can easily find a selection. My wife has salmon stuffed with crab and I had hamburger steak. Both with baked potato, veggies and salad. The food was excellent! Our server was friendly, offering suggestions and answering our questions. She checked on us and replenished our drinks promptly.

Edisto shrimp and seafood combo were great. Kids menu, take out available, full service bar. Nightly fresh fish special. Nautical decor inside and out. Easy parking. Best prices at lunch. Better menu selections at dinner. All-u-can-eat at dinner only. Monday is a treat of low country boil. Check on line for lunch and dinner menus and hours. Sunday brunch 10am-2pm.... More

You don't normally expect that at a seafood restaurant. My wife had the broiled flounder and it was excellent also. Service was friendly and prompt also. They weren't very... More

First, do not let the name fool you. This restaurant is not on the water, it is about a block off the water with the beach to the left and the creek to the right. However, just because the name is misleading does not mean the food is not tasty as can be. I recommend anything fried. If you go... More

Excellent dinner 01-02-2016! Arrived abt 6pm and our party of 2 was immediately greeted by the hostess. To the right, a man played the guitar and sang by the bar - overhead, a large rowboat was suspended from the high ceiling. Being right after the Christmas Holiday, a decorated tree stood adorned in the foyer and it added to the... More
