Very good local food. Ben was extremely friendly and the fried shrimp was plentiful, delicious and reasonably priced. Highly recommended Sea Cow Eatery.

Eight ladies had a grand time and a wonderful meal with excellent service for lunch. The turkey wrap, fried flounder sandwich, and Reuben where just a few of the raved about meals. The waitress was knowledgeable and friendly as can be! We will be back.

Had a very good BLT for lunch and an excellent piece of butterscotch pecan pie (?!) baked on the premises

We met up with the owner's husband while on a walk around Edisto. He influenced our decision to try The Seacow Eatery, and reminded us they served breakfast. Huge sized platters of country cookin', hash, pancakes (with chocolate chips, no less!) and the creamiest grits I've ever had. (The secret? Heavy cream, of course!)

The choice is limited in Edisto. All the restaurants are essentially burger joints with fried seafood and predictable menus. We found this place to be the cleanest and most pleasant of all of them which is not saying much. The staff were pleasant enough, the dining room is tight on space, and we saw the locals are warmly welcomed which... More

We went there twice for breakfast. Eggs and grits were good but went a few days later and got pancakes. They were spongy and mushy. Staff was very unfriendly.

My wife and I did lunch at the Sea Cow - we fit the name perfectly - she is a connoisseur of sea food and I am not :) She had the shrimp wrap - fresh shrimp, great sandwich! I had a burger - above average. We both thought the beer-battered fries were some of the best fries we have... More

We visited Edisto for 4 days with another couple. We tried out all the restaurants on the island and this was a consistent favorite:). Yummy breakfast...try the pancakes!! You won't be disappointed. We went back for dinner and it was my favorite meal on the island. Shrimp and grits. They have amazing grits anytime of the day. The collard greens,... More
