Good food but heavy on the fried bread on the seafood and a tad greasy

It was yummy after a day at the beach. A small line since it was a crowded beach week and their service was noticeably slow. We all dived into the fried seafood but the breading was so thick, we had to pick some off to really enjoy the fresh seafood underneath. It was good and beach friendly... read more

If I had to select one dish to eat for every other visit we make, I'd pick the Fish Taco. By far the best dish on the menu. A few things to note; They don't have a bathroom. (Or at least that's what they told my husband.) And they don't chuck their fish for Fish & Chips.

Good for a quick meal. Food is fair and atmosphere is nice. A little greasy but it's that kind of place. Busy in season. Fair prices.

If you do ONE thing while you're in Edisto, eat here. I HIGHLY recommend their fish tacos. On top of amazing food, the staff is friendly and the service is amazing. The atmosphere isn't "fancy" but it's charming and fun. I promise, you won't be disappointed!

My family visited McConkey's for lunch and we were excited to have our first dining experience on Edisto Island. My son-in-law ordered the hush puppies for an appetizer and when they arrive we found a hair in one of them. Our waiter was told and he promptly brought out more. Needless to say no one wanted hush puppies anymore But... More

Good food and not too bad on price! My cousin had the Cordon-Blu sandwich which he raved about. My husband really liked the Cheese Burger and I had the Fish Sandwich-excellent! Add a pitcher of Sangria and it was Great all the way around!

Great burgers and a pitcher of sweet tea. Be sure and try the mahi tacos and onion rings as well. I really don't have 100 words to add in order to submit this review .

One of our favorite places for lunch. Love the fish tacos and the fried shrimp. The cheeseburger is awesome too.

The food was pretty good. But the breeze off the dumpsters was not a positive feature. It was Memorial Day weekend so the place was jammed and the service was slow. But my daughter and her husband swear by the place so I guess we'll give it another chance.

Hello, Oh... The joys of dining al fresco. I am sorry you had to deal with a "bad wind" day at the restaurant. Our garbage area is shared with the Grocery Store next door. Unfortunately, BiLo sometimes disposes of vegetable matter that doesn't ferment sweetly in the hot summer weather. We have been working on this issue for YEARS. But... More

There is no air conditioning...and it's still five stars for me. There is lots of cool and shady seating with fans blowing, and lots of ice cold beer and wine. Being a little warm is SO worth the fried mushroom or onion ring app, not to mention the fried flounder, oysters or other seafood platters. For those watching the beach... More
