Had breakfast here while on vacation. The grits were some of the best I've ever had. The country ham, not so much, it was too salty.

You won't wait too terribly long to get a seat at this "hum-drum" looking place. While waiting you can visit one of the two? gift shops that are on site since the host will walk over to the shop to call your party's name. Or you can pass the time while playing the old-fashioned 'Ring and hook' game. Customers seem... More

Ate at several restaurants on the island and by far this is the very best. A great combination of comfortable setting, gracious charming staff ,great food and all at a price that will astound you considering the quantity and quality of the food

While I usually head to the Sea Cow for a wonderful breakfast, I went for dinner with friends and the food was excellent. The staff is always friendly and helpful!

Although there was a wait, it was definitely worth it! We had a party of 8 and were all satisfied when we left. We ordered an array of foods from fish to burgers and everything was wonderful. The fries were great along with the fried shrimp. It is small but that adds to the charm. I will be returning next... More

There is always a long wait at the Sea Cow. But it is worth the wait if you are hungry. The server LARGE portions and the grits they serve are a local blend that are absolutely wonderful. It's a busy place but the wait staff seem to do a good job of keeping up with you and keeping your coffee... More

A must for breakfast. Small dining room + great word of mouth = long wait. Who cares your on vacation. Several local shops within feet of the restaurant. Kid friendly. Prices aren't outrageous for beach town. Kids got a short stack each. The pancakes are so big they can definitely share. Go for one order. My wife loved the omelette... More

Stopped here when leaving the island. It was very busy. Looked like lots of tourists and locals alike were here. Service was very slow but employees very polite. And the food was worth the wait.

Decided to eat here on the last day of our vacation. And as the old saying goes... "saved the best for last". At least as far as the food goes. The food Das terrific. I had the BBQ pulled pork sandwich. It was better than the BBQ joint up the road. The fried shrimp was the best I've ever had... More

My extended family and I went recently and had an overall good experience. Their food was really good, and the staff was friendly enough, however the overall slowness of actually getting your food could be improved. There are not a lot of choices on Edisto Island, so it is better than other other handful of restaurants there.
