We have eaten here several times now, and have had no disappointments. It also seems popular with the locals. I have no hesitations in recommending this place.

All-you-can-eat crab legs were excellent! Will definitely come back next time we visit Edisto Island.

Two of my kids had average kids' meals, but my son indulged in the daily special of all you can eat crabs and he really enjoyed that- I think we got our $29.95's worth! The she crab soup was delicious.

We were at Edisto for 2 weeks and ate at almost every restaurant on the island and on our last night, we ate here. I am telling you it was the very best meal we had while we were there. I had the fried flounder and it was light, hot and soooo good! My husband had a combo platter with... More

Loved the fried oysters and flounder at the Waterfront Restaurant. Also loved the oldies beach music that they play inside. They have a decent salad bar.

The restaurant does technically have... More

Excellent breakfast buffet. The service staff was very friendly and the cook made sure the buffet was hot and well stocked. My wife loved the eggs benedict. We all left the restaurant very happy and very full.

Restaurant was quiet when we visited. I had the Low Country Stir Fry which tasted similar to gumbo with sautéed cabbage, sausage, shrimp, and chicken - it was delicious but you would have to be a fan of Cajun to appreciate. We also had the shrimp and grits, also wonderful, and the fried seafood platter which was nicely done. The... More

Except for a very little marsh water out back the place is not waterfront. But, when the food and service is this good, who cares. We went there for lunch and had crab cakes and oyster po boy. Excellent. All you care to eat crab legs was the special for dinner. Locals we eating at the next table so I... More
