Sunday Breakfast

Heading out for breakfast on a risky Sunday. Glad it was and of season as we did not wait long for seating. Restaurant is only about 12 tables if it rains. Coffee was far better than we were brewing in the apartment and we took full advantage. Johns omelette is huge! Two of us split one and... read more

I Always stop in for their long selection of pies, but stop early otherwise you may be disappointed and occasionally clam chowder. They have much more good food but haven't tried! Been coming here since 1982!

We had breakfast here on our last day in town after reading all the good reviews. We ate on the deck outside and it was very nice. The staff was so friendly and attentive, but the food did take quite a long time. My husband loved john's omelet and our kids had pancakes and bacon. The pancakes reminded me of... More

Stopped here while driving nearby because of all the positive reviews. Went at lunchtime and it was very busy but service was decent. Basically this place is like a diner with reasonable prices and just average food. I had the Caesar salad with fried oysters which was drowning in dressing. My husband had the she crab soup and grilled cheese... More

The food was excellent! I got a fish taco (tilapia) that was so big I could barely finish it. The fries were delicious. Our waiter was attentive and has the best personality. No one in our party was disappointed with their meal.

Another great place for young families. My nephew and his young family declare it their favorite place to eat at Edisto Beach. They love dinner there, while I enjoy breakfast.

We stumbled onto this place in the off season when most everything else was closed. We were very pleasantly surprised at the great food we had as our expectations were not very high. My wife, who eats fish rarely, ordered a fish sandwich and raved about how good it was. I had fried shrimp which was also excellent. I'll certainly... More

Breakfast was terrific. We ate at 9:30 am and went straight to the beach. Lunch was not necessary, we were sufficiently satisfied from our breakfast.

We visit Edisto Beach at least once a year. We always look forward to at least one meal at the Sea Cow Eatery. Not fancy, just good food, fair price and service! This morning 8/21/15 was no exception. Everything was just as requested!

1st eating during dinner hour. Arrived later in evening and eat outside. Excellent server but slow turn-a-around of meal from kitchen. Dinner quality ok. Burger was average at best - not impressed. Overall found restaurants including this one - price of meal doesn't match meal quality. Spouses squash casserole had burnt pieces in it. Grilled Mai Mai turned out with... More
