Just okay..

We ate here as a party of 8 people and the wait staff had to break us up in different sections and with different waiters. My food was greasy and average. Growing up in Florida, I have had much better seafood for a better price. The place was packed and the hostess were less than enthused about... read more

Also quite tasty! Friendly staff... Awesome food.... Sit back and enjoy the locals on the island... And those who come back year after year when on... More

This was our first trip to Edisto Beach. We ate from several restaurants while there and I'll have to say Whaley's was in the top two. I had the 1lb peel and eat with corn and sausage, my wife had the fried flounder. The shrimp were fresh and the flounder was fresh and fried crispy, delicious food. No room for... More

We ate lunch here our third day on the island. Friendly service and good food, our only criticism was portion size for the price. My friend and I ordered the sushi nachos as an appetizer (which were 10 bucks). Don't get me wrong, they were yummy, but only 4 come in an order, and for 10 bucks we were expecting... More

At dinner there before going on the "Turtle Walk" at Edisto Beach State Park. Had boiled shrimp and catch of the day. Both were very good. Price was reasonable.

This has always been a favorite place for our family to eat on a Monday while visiting the island. The last visit we had the waiter was rude & food is overpriced. The atmosphere was SO stinking hot my husband had to get up and go OUTSIDE to get cool. We were smooshed (party of 10) into booth under air... More

Food was delicious, recommend the round man's platter. If you have a large party be aware that you will have to wait a while. Not many big tables because of the small size of the restaurant.

I love seafood dives so I had to try this place. Loved the atmosphere - dark, old, looks run down and the bathrooms are outside! Started w/ the Sushi Nachos. Kinda Meh...Should have gone with something less gimmicky. Everyone else got sandwiches but I went with fried shrimp and oysters. Very good! I mean it's not "fine dining" but then... More

Many refer to this place as a "dive." But it's far from it! Because the chairs don't match or what the restaurant refers to as the "Sanford and Sons" decorating, doesn't make it a dive! If you like upscale, food chain restaurants, or to dress up when you go out-- don't go here. However, there were people that came off... More
