This restaurant is located just a couple of doors down from Acme Lowcountry Kitchen. If you are going to the Sea Biscuit, get there early, because it is a tiny restaurant and it's very popular. We had a relatively short wait of about 5 minutes, but longer times are not uncommon. Service is a bit slow, so plan on have... More

Long time island favorite for breakfast any lunch, you may wait for a table in season, but fresh sea it and the easy ambiance helps. No credit cards are accepted.

You might wait a bit for breakfast on a weekend but it actually move as very quickly. And boy is it worth the wait. We tried some of the specials and some items off the menu. Each received rave reviews. Despite how busy it was our server did great checking often. This is a must do place for breakfast.

We decided to try this place before a morning boat excursion and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were greeted and seated immediately and our server was very attentive. I had the special of cinnamon swirl French toast made with homemade bread. My husband had an omelet and was more than pleased. They don't take plastic so make sure you have cash.

We ordered relatively simple breakfasts which were a long time coming and cold by the time we got them. The bacon was rubbery, the toast was cold, and the eggs were overcooked (and cold). Then came the bill . . . wow! Not likely to go back or recommend to others.

This local joint offers actually some of the best food in the Charleston area and certainly the very best among Sullivan's Island and Isle of Palms. Delicious, fresh food, lovely service. And homemade desserts!

I love southern gravy and biscuits. But what Sea Biscuit dishes out has a strange spice in it and if you don't like it.. Well, so much for a good breakfast. Order with caution.

As locals, we love to take all of our out-of-town guests to Sea Biscuit Cafe for breakfast. Their eclectic menu and quaint beachy atmosphere is what one thinks of when they plan a visit to the beaches of the lowcountry. Their menu has all of the typical breakfast foods but their unique daily specials are what makes Sea Biscuit Cafe... More

Stopped by the Sea Biscuit Cafe for breakfast during a short weekend trip in Charleston with the family. Once again a great experience. Biscuit and sausage gravy with some eggs, over medium. The day could not have started better. Other breakfast items were well received by the rest of the family members. Will sure be back next time we are... More
