Decent Food

Nothing bad to say. The food here is good. They are always accommodating for our large family, and have good service. It's been a while since we've been so none of the food that was ordered stands out in my mind.

Hands down the best fried shrimp I have had in the low-country. this is a total cliché beach bar atmosphere, until you realize that this just is actually how they are and it is not just a

This place is the quintessential beach restaurant! We eat here every visit to Edisto. They have a wide variety of sandwiches, this last visit my husband had the Gyro, it was very good, and I had the crab patty open face sandwich. Also good, although too much bread for the patty. The homemade chips were good and the onion rings... More

First time to Edisto beach and the Jungle Shack was our dining destination for the day. We went to the Shack for lunch. It has a very nice outdoor feel (only part of the restaurant is sheltered). The staff were very attentive and friendly. All of the food was very good and nobody came away hungry. I would recommend the... More

McConkey's local seafood is excellent, the shrimp succulent, with a wonderful tasty batter, yes it's fried, but work the indulgent (you may request the shrimp grilled if you wish). One of our group had the fish and chips with a beautiful juicy piece of sole. The sinful onion rings--marvelous and the French fries aren't bad either. All freshy cooked and... More

Stopped in to have some beers and apps one afternoon. The chicken nachos and fried pickles are awesome. The Red Sangria is good, as well. Like many places on the island, they do not serve liquor, only beer and wine. We went back to try their fish tacos. They were good but A little bland. Very eclectic, beach atmosphere. Recommend...

If I could give McConkey's a 3 1/2, I would. It's good for what it is, just nothing special. I ate a burger and it was good. Wasn't in the mood for fried seafood--my wife and daughter had some and said it was OK. I wouldn't oppose going back, but I can't imagine it ever being my first choice.

The service was fantastic the atmosphere was great and the prices fair. I loved the choice of indoor or outdoor seating the beach decor also added to the beach atmosphere. The only thing that I didn't care for was the restroom situation yes they had one but it was through the kitchen but that won't keep me from coming back.
