Not to be missed

This breakfast and lunch place is the best, come early or be prepared to wait but well worth it. Staff is very friendly and food excellent. If you are only the IOP don't miss this place.

Breakfast at the Sea Biscuit is now a family tradition when my family visits Isle of Palms, SC. This small and charming restaurant sits just one blocks off the beach.

Go early, but go!!! If you are any early bird I think you have a good chance of getting in without too long of a wait. But, even so it is worth the wait. Wonderful breakfast!!!

Good food, a bit frenetic...but they were doing a lot of work on the building. This is a good place to get some good local low country food.

Family of four ate here for breakfast 3 times in our week stay. Always great. Cash only. Kiddie cake for kids is great for them.

Best Breakfast food. Don't be in a hurry for breakfast. Took awhile but worth the wait to get a table.
