Good place for breakfast

In fact, it one of the ONLY places that serve breakfast on the beach! Slow and not very attentive service. But the food is good.

Fantastic Breakfast!!! The grits are the best I have ever eaten!! My 4 year old enjoyed a pancake with fruit and it was great! My husband and I enjoyed the eggs, bacon, grits or homefries, and biscuit. All of it was excellent!! The food is just amazing! The portion size is perfect and the staff are so friendly!! Go eat...

We went here after spending the day walking the beach on Edisto Island. We had heard it was good for breakfast but we went for supper. My husband had the shrimp and was totally satisfied. I had a bbq pulled pork sandwich and too was totally satisfied. We ate out on the deck; the weather was beautiful. We went again... More

We were looking for something fresh and filling and we found it! We had lunch at the Sea Cow Eatery. Everything we saw being served looked and smelled amazing. At the next table, they had ordered clam chowder that was thick and creamy. The Caesar salad looked fresh and smelled good. We ordered a shrimp salad platter and a shrimp... More

Small indoor eating area however there is also ample outdoors covered space. Delicious food at reasonable prices. Great service. Homemade pies are exceptional.

The breakfast offerings at the Sea Cow are great. Be sure to try the plate-sized pancakes, the french toast and the grits. During the season go early to get a good spot!

Thanks to the Tripadvisor ratings we decided to try out the Seacow Eatery. It didn't disappoint! Everything we ordered and ate were fantastic. Calamari, fried shrimp & scallops combo, grilled mahi mahi & Hawaiian chicken were delicious! And the sides were to die for! Try the green beans and squash casserole if available. The place was packed on a Sunday... More

Not much to choose from for breakfast on the island, but the food here was great! Just be careful if you order onions in your omelette, as they will put in a ton! Breakfast potatoes were perfect.
