Our family went to Waterfronts early in the week and had a very good meal. For starters, we had the fried green tomatoes and they were good. The only problem was that put them on a bed of grits and I don't like grits. I...More

Always enjoy eating at The Waterfront. Good food and service. Friendly staff. This place is always crowded so if you don't get there early, expect a wait! Recommend giving this restaurant a try on your next trip to Edisto!

The food is good and it’s a nice restaurant for families and couples. They also have a person there that sings and plays the guitar.

This place is incredibly busy, and for good reason. Really enjoyed the crab and artichoke dip, the snow crab legs and the prime rib. Alex, the bartender, did a great job with the drinks and service.
