This is the 4th time I have dined with this restaurant. We arrived at 5 pm and we're promptly seated. However, we did not receive our meal until 5:50 pm. I can say our server was very friendly. The restaurant was full. I don't know if they were under staffed tonight. We have received faster service before. My fries and... More

We had the best meal of the week at The Waterfront. We were a family of 6 and everyone said their meal was fantastic. The menu was diverse and suited our seafood and land lovers alike. The hush puppies were delicious too! We had good service and great food, we couldn't have asked for more!

We walked in and was able to be seated immediately though they were quite busy. The food was good and our waiter Dave H was wonderful. We have been coming here since we first started coming to EDISTO 10 years ago and will be back.

This was actually our favorite food on the island but the service was horrible! It was slow during the time we were there and seemed like to the waitress that it was a hassle that we were there and needed to be seated, but finally walked over to do so. Wait time was decent on the food and it was... More

The first thing to know, The Waterfront Restaurant is not on the waterfront. Once upon a time it was, but not now. Having said that, this is my favorite place for dinner on Edisto. Owned by the Flowers family – a name synonymous with seafood on Edisto – along with veggies and desserts provided by King’s Farm/Market assures the diner... More

We recently met some friends on Edisto Island for dinner. Our first thought was to go to Finns- which we did. But as it took over 20 minutes just to get a cocktail, we decided it might be best to eat somewhere else. Having been to the Waterfront Restaurant last year for a yummy brunch, we thought we'd try it... More
