We read reviews about the Sea Cow and saw it was rated high for Edisto Beach so we tried it. We had already spent a week photographing the LowCountry for a forthcoming book and frequented eateries in Beaufort, Port Royal, Ridgeland, Hilton Head, Bluffton, Savannah and Tybee Beach. Some of these were regional favorites to locals and some have been... More

I visited the Sea Cow for breakfast while on a family vacation. There was a short wait but we played wall hooky outside and visited the small shoppes near-by, while we waited. Our waitres was nice and took our drink order quickly and returned to take our food order in a resonable amount of time. The place was packed but... More

This was our second year to Edisto, and we couldn't wait to return to the Sea Cow Eatery for their fried shrimp. I have eaten at many seafood restaurants over the years, from the gulf coast to Alaska, but, this is the best fried shrimp ever! If you are at Edisto, don't miss it. And, on a return visit, I...

This is a favorite breakfast diner when we visit Edisto. The grits are fabulous....I did not like grits till I ate these! Definitely not weight watcher's though!

One of the better restaurants in Edisto. Seafood was fixed to our taste. Wife had grilled flounder, I had a flounder po boy and our son had scallops. We also had NE clam chowder (really good!) Portions were generous. Prices were a little high, but not bad. Worth the visit if you are here for the week.

For this place being so casual, I think they are overpriced. We ate dinner here and I had the shrimp and scallops with fries and collard greens. The shrimp and scallops were perfectly cooked, the fries were good and the greens were not that good. My husband ordered the blackened tuna at the recommendation of our waitress. First of all,...

We have eaten at the Sea Cow several times and the food and service was wonderful. This visit was a bit disappointing. There were only 2 or 3 servers for the entire restaurant, inside and out. The seating inside was extremely crowded and the food took forever to come out. It was after Labor Day so I assume there was... More

Delicious breakfast spot on Edisto Island. We got here around 9am on a Monday morning and walked right in. However, by the time our food was arriving (9:20), it was getting pretty packed and a line had formed outside. The staff was friendly, not overly smiley or too eager but just efficient wait staff providing their best service. And it... More

My family and I have been going to Edisto for the past 3 years, and our trip is not complete without at least one visit to the Sea Cow. The food is always spot on, and the menu has something for everyone. I highly recommend the "Moo La La" French toast if you want something sweet. If you prefer an... More

On our recent trip to Edisto Island, we found our way to the Sea Cow Eatery that came highly recommended. It should be highly recommended. It's small and during the busy hours you may have to wait awhile because this place is popular. Prices are very reasonable and the food is excellent. The service is excellent too. Never had to...
