Great breakfast on edisto beach. Had an omelette with everything. Place is kind of a hole in the wall with not much ambiance, but the food makes up for it. A definite "go to" if your in the area

We visited the Sea Cow recently for dinner. My husband had grilled tilapia with field peas and collard greens and I had a Cobb salad with the house dressing, a mustard-tarragon vinaigrette. Both meals were great. My salad was so good I couldn't stop eating it until I had cleaned my plate. Afterwards we had a slice of coconut cream... More

We had breakfast here one morning while staying on the Island and it was very tasty. My wife and her sister had eggs and grits and I had their moo mania and all meals were excellent. Topped this off with excellent service and it was a great start to our day! We would definitely return.

Stepping into the screened porch, I felt right at home again on Edisto Island. The welcome was slow and warm, the seats wooden and the greeting pure Southern hospitality. The food almost seemed secondary to the ambience: casual and beachy. But, it too was great...fish sandwich and shrimp were cooked to perfection and the sweet tea...how I've missed you! The... More

Great breakfast - these people know how to cook scrambled eggs! Also make tasty pancakes and creamy grits! Save room for Martha's pie.

Finally found a restaurant that makes a Reuben right. The Jewish rye with caraway seeds was grilled perfectly and the sandwich arrived at the table hot. Fries were hot and crispy.

Out of the way and not much to look at but the service and food are good. Specialty of home made pies and local shrimp and grits.

Felt the reviews of this restaurant were over rated. It looks inviting on the outside but the floor inside was filthy. Service for our lunch was slow and unfriendly. The food we tried -- as much comfort food as seafood is offered -- was just OK.

Food was very good eventhough not exceptionally warm. We ate outside and since it wasn't steaming hot (the food) it was cold before we finished our plates. They were very busy (Sunday morning) and didn't appreciate us hanging around enjoying our coffee. Actually asked one of our 2 tables to leave!
