Stopped by on Thursday night for dinner. Moderately busy, seated almost immediately and Lisa, our waitress, came by to get our drink order and let us know the specials. Overall, very good food, excellent service may be a little pricey, but almost everything on the island is. Food portions were big and almost everyone in the party took some home... More

We had friends who were vacationing at Edisto and they asked us to drive there and have dinner with them last night. We drove 2 hours to get there. The food was great, everyone at the table (8 of us) enjoyed the food, but the service was the worst ever! Only one person at the table got refills for his... More

This restaurant usually stays open the latest on Edisto Island. The food is always good and last time I was there they had a guitarist playing music while sitting at the bar.

I had the BLT/soup lunch special. The sandwich was excellent. The she crab soup was just ok. The service was very good and the prices were reasonable.

Good for a quick lunch. Shrimp & grits were good. Fried oysters were also tasty. It wasn't very busy at the time but quick service & friendly employees. Not very fancy but plenty of food.

We went based on some reviews seen here, but was disappointed. The noise level was that of a airport tarmac and the service was below average. The food was palatable, but too pricey for what you get. We were unimpressed with the passive to bordering on rudeness of the hostess when our 8 year old grand daughter went to ask... More

Went here for our last dinner out. It is a bit pricey but the food is excellent! I had prime rib with salad and baked potato and a sweet tea and it was $35. I don't mind splurging on good food. The meat melted in my mouth and there was a lot of it. Hardly no fat at all. Everyone... More

We usually get seafood but decided to cook our own at the condo. We did eat lunch and dinner here. Burgers and fries for lunch, burgers were so juicy and good. For dinner we had the prime rib sandwiches, again sooooo good!! Also picked up breakfast to go since the Seacow would not take a phone order because they were... More
