Had the all you can eat low country boil dinner and it was excellent. Had a guy at the bar singing and he was entertaining but other than that no real atmosphere. Service was excellent and they kept the food coming.

We did the breakfast buffet and it was great, the best cheesy grits I have ever had. The Old Bay Bloody Mary was awesome with a kick! When we were leaving the other side was packed for their lunch buffet, we will be back.

Sorry, but we have never tried the Sunday buffet. Never been ar Edisto on Sunday. Usually a travel day, but I can assure you, what they serve will be good.
