Dinner here was a little disappointing...thought it would be better than it actually was. Atmosphere lacking and not so friendly service.....seafood was good, but not as plentiful portions as other restaurants in area. Overall kind of disappointing.

We had dinner here on Labor Day Eve. The place was hopping and stayed busy all night, turning away people nearing closing time. They serve the typical island seafood fare, and we all enjoyed.

Little dive seafood bar and grill. Not overwhelmed, just ok. Portions were average. Crab cakes were great, but the low country boil was skimpy. Kind of expensive... better places to eat while in Edisto.

this used to be one of our favorite places in Edisto. I'm not sure what's happened since our last visit, but it isn't good! i'm stupefied by how bad the whole evening was. very disappointed from the poor service to the horrible food, which isn't cheap. its hard to screw up a seafood boil, but they managed to do it.

Had the whole crew at the Restaurant the other night and despite the 20 minute wait we were served well. The fried fish, chicken fingers and burgers were very good. They made sure we had what we needed.

My wife and I were very anxious to go back to Whaley's because of our great experiences in the past. Boy, were we disappointed! The food and service were far from what our previous visits were. Everything from the service, soup of the day, and the steamer bucket was subpar. When the waitress finally asked if everything was ok, my... More

This "downtown" Edisto Beach place is as local as it gets. The feeling is old style seafood restaurant, but the food is excellent. Without a doubt the best fried oysters in town. The tuna nachos are quite unique and worth trying. Don't tell them I sent you or they might not let me come back!

Second time eating here- service is slow- but wait staff friendly- had the pork chop sammy again- good in garlic butter! 10 yr old son had same and said he would go back to burger next time as he rated the burger a 9 last time we ate there a few months ago! Love the raw fries!

While the food was pretty good, the service was not! The waiter was borderline rude and seemed very uninterested in whether we were pleased with anything or not.

We had lunch 8/30/14. We had the most wonderful waitress, I believe that her name was Sarah.. She was truly a sweetheart and my wife and I absolutely adored her. She gave us outstanding service, and she was charming, funny and witty.. The food was great, but we ran into a little problem and her reaction was priceless.. (you had... More
