House chips are always good. Allegedly home of the grumpiest bartender in South Carolina... we did not witness... read more

My wife and I went to Whaley 's for lunch. We started with a great crab cake , lots of crab ! Then we shared the Round Man Platter for $27.95 and well worth it. Received 4 plump scallops grilled to perfection. 5 large shrimps cooked just right. One giant flounder that was light and crispy. Also several fried oysters... More

Whaley's is a must for your visit to Edisto Beach if you like a local dive that has a fun bar-type atmosphere! Try out the wings! Be sure to meet George the bartender while you're there!

This was our second visit to Whaley's, it is listed as one of the recommended restaurants by the resort and also offers a 10% discount to resort residents. The fish was very fresh and tasty. The wait staff was very attentive and provided good service. If you are looking for tasty seafood it is the place to go. The restaurant... More

This is a funky little place. From the gas pumps outside to the locals inside, and the cool menu it is definitely a dive in a good way. I gave it three stars because we didn't feel the food was outstanding. It was good but not great. First the good. I had the Sushi Nachos and they were very good,... More

This tuna dish is always wonderful. Really so top end it is way above the normal fare at Whaley's. Don't get me wrong they have great bar food but this is like something you would get downtown Charleston at Peninsula Grill. But do not get the oysters. They pile ice with rock salt ON the shucked oysters. Ech.

This is a great place to enjoy healthy portions of all sorts of seafood. The crab cakes are outstanding. Try the shrimp and grits. The lemon pepper wings are great. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. Their is a children's menu as well. The bar offers some great original cocktails. This is a great place for family/friends to gather,... More

Great dive bar! We go on vacation to Edisto regularly and always make a point to eat here. Good food, cold beverages, and nice staff. Nice local hangout and one of the few places on the island to get together for sporting events.
