Most restaurants are closed on Monday on Edisto. The Waterfront, Sea cow and Waleys are open however. We chose to go to the Waterfront for a birthday dinner. There was a 20-25 minute wait for our party of three. Our food was very good. The fried green tomatoes were served over the best grits ever tasted. Fried shrimp were lightly... More

My family and I went to the Waterfront Restaurant on our second trip to Edisto last week. We went last year and it was just ok. There aren't many dining options on the island, so one night we found ourselves back there. The decor is old and tired, and the whole place looks like it needs a deep cleaning. The... More

We had an awesome dinner with great service. We ate dinner around 6:30, our server Sabrina was so sweet and very attentive. Our food came out quickly and our water glasses were always refilled. We ordered the seafood combo pick two dinners $19.99 each. I got the crab cake, grilled shrimp, fries, green beans, a house salad, and I added... More

We were there early so we could beat the crowds for dinner... got seated but then waited and waited for water and service... food was poor quality. Ordered Fried flounder but I think it something else very mushy... not worth the time or money... also very busy and LOUD!!!

Although this restaurant is not on the waterfront, it has a nautical theme. Very clean, no greasy smells. I had the grilled shrimp which was perfectly seasoned and delicious. The slaw is freshly made and quite good. My gripe with this restaurant is that the only way you are getting hushpuppies is to pay $5.99 for a basket. I asked... More

We have had multiple meals at Waterfront - I've never had an 'average' meal there and always a good meal. On Edisto - where the choices are limited - they are a good choice. Service has been good. Food well prepared. If you know Edisto you know you are not going to find 5-star dining, but you know you want... More

This was an overall pleasant dining experience. My husband and I ordered the seafood combo with grilled shrimp, fried flounder, red rice, green beans and a salad, and it was plenty of food to fill us both up. The food was pretty good, and portions were larger (for the price) than the other restaurants we've tried in the area.
