Great breakfast

The best place for breakfast on the island. Get there early as they get very busy. Very friendly staff. They all pitch in to help.

Our party was at 2 tables. 1 person went to pay their bill & the rest were told they needed to leave to make room for other people. They started to clear the table before my daughter finished paying her bill. Not everyone was finished eating. Since her table was asked to leave, we left too. I have never been... More

Fast, Tasty, Great Service! It was a hot but rainy day. We were hungry and uncomfortable and needed a close place fast. It ended up being a surprisingly good time!

We eat here all the time. Our favorite restaurant on Edisto. Can be very busy in season. The New England clam chowder is heaven. Never had a bad meal.

Great breakfast and wonderful service. Always had to wait to get in but was definitely worth the wait. Only had breakfast but seemed to be busy at the other meals also.

The wait for food took FOREVER. The service was poor. The food was average. We went there for Father's Day dinner and were really disappointed

Martha makes pies to end all pies. She should own the Sea Cow. Sea Cow's menu food is good, and it's a tiny, beachy joint tucked into some surf shops. So the restaurant itself is cute, and a meal is worth it if all the other spots are crowded because it's not incredibly pricey, BUT Martha's pies are what keep... More

This is the place for breakfast on Edisto Island. We arrived and the place was packed. The hostess took our name and said it would be a 25 mins, We were called to a table in about 10 mins. The waitress was really nice and we had our food in just a few minutes. My husband and I had omelets.... More

We only ate breakfast here but it was excellent! The biscuits and gravy are to die for. My Grand Daughter loved the Moo-la-la French toast as well. The portions were large so sharing is advised.
