Liked this meal as much as others in the past. Seafood is great and plentiful. Service is good. Atmosphere is ok....might be spruced up a bit, but overall what you expect at the beach.

Went here tonight for dinner and was very pleased with food and service. Sabrina was our server and she was extremely pleasant, helpful, and always smiling. We started with the fried green tomatoes which are served over grits and were very good. we also tried the hush puppies and Pimento cheese and they were also tasty. my friends had the... More

No complaints. An average family restaurant with ok/good food although I was surprised that the the shrimp we ordered as an appetizer and that came with my broiled seafood platter appeared to be the peeled ready to eat kind found on any grocery store freezer shelf. Wasn't expecting that since this is Edisto. Overall, an ok/average family restaurant. Wait staff... More

The food and service at The Waterfront are great! Nice size restaurant. It will hold more people than some of the other restaurants on the island. Very convenient location. Prices are very reasonable. Plenty of food served for the price.

We liked the beach and campground. The only little diner we liked has closed. I am told groceries are limited now too. NO launderette near. Have to travel 40 miles to do anything at all.

We ate at Waterfront twice during our seven day stay in Edisto. From pasta to calamari, everything I tasted was delicious.

It's always interesting to read other reviews and see how different my experience was compared to others. When it comes to service, I am very picky and tend to complain a lot when it isn't just right. The staff at The Waterfront did an excellent job on a very busy Saturday evening. We were seated promptly. Menus were distributed and... More

We were actually going out to rent bikes but found the rental shop closed on Sunday. So food is always a great goto. They do have breakfast buffet but we ordered off the menu. I had the crab cake with eggs benedict. So, so yummy! My husband had the Edisto mash. He always mixes everything up in his grits so... More

I thought I would give this place another chance, but once again I am very disappointed. We arrived for lunch at 1:00 pm August 29th 2014. The restaurant was not busy at all, and there was only one other table.. We were seated promptly by a young man that had kitchen attire, but we were completely ignored by the wait... More

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
