Awesome breakfast!!

This is our favorite place on the island! Staff is excellent, and will bring you coffee on the porch while you wait. Some plates are so enormous you should share them. Like the Moo-Mania definitely enough for 2 hungry people.

Four of us had to wait 45 minutes to be seated on a Sunday morning for breakfast. Place was packed. They are so jammed with tables they ask you to stand outside or go to the gift shop. Food quality was good, but not outstanding or above average. Wife and I had pancakes. Our friends had other dishes and they... More

Visited today for lunch, and tried their Lunch Special --- crab cake sliders, which were delicious. They arrived hot and crispy, on tasty potato buns, with French fries and Cole slaw. Sea Cow never disappoints!

For the price you get large portions and delicious food. We had breakfast one morning and the portions are really large. We had lunch a few days later and went out stuffed. They also sell their hats and tee shirt with the Sea Cow logo that is extra adorable.

Lunch here on a Sunday was delicious and relaxing. Service was casual but attentive. The inside tables are very close together but we ended up having nice conversation with the ladies at the table beside of us. Spring Salad Roll - absolutely delicious - the shrimp and dressing were so flavorful. Beer battered french fries and fried shrimp were equally... More

Went for breakfast and the food is Delicious as always! The breakfast here is worth the wait if you have to stand in line. Luckily for us, it was New Year's Day and lots of people slept in! The grits are the best!

We read all the great reviews and decided to forego breakfast at the condo so we could try the Sea Cow. We didn't find the wait staff to be very friendly, and the food was average. Our biscuits and breakfast potatoes were cold. The omelet was not bad, but the cheese inside was tough. We will opt to eat breakfast... More

A great place. Recommend the shrimp roll. Great tea and fries. Trip to Edisto wouldn't be complete without a visit to the Sea Cow! If going in summer for lunch, go early or a little later than Noon to miss the crowd cause there WILL be one. Enjoy!
