Eating here is a tradition that I look forward to every visit! Great staff. Amazing food. Great bartender and live music is always the most enjoyable!! We even had a party of 11 walk in an hour before closing and they still seemed happy to see us all! Some people will look at their menu prices and say no way... More

We had dinner here our first night in Edisto. The flounder and crab cakes were excellent. The she crab soup was very good with a good amount of crab. The death by chocolate cake was sinfully good. The place was very crowed with a nice singer entertaining. The waitstaff was very friendly and efficient. We will go back.

This Restaurant has great food, excellent service and wonderful entertainment. The prime rib is one of my favorite. I have eaten a lot of different meals here all were excellent. Craig Croker sings live on Friday and Saturdays and is a great singer. Love the food atmosphere and service. Wonderful!!!!

Delicious and huge portion! Great portion to share. Recommend their house specialty dish, a pecan-encrusted fish (grouper, maybe?) Very cool wait staff. Quick service. Good cocktails. Crab soup was ok, a little on the salty side for me.

Great she crab soup. Crab cakes were good too. Atmosphere was nice and just okay.....not extraordinary. But very clean. Service was pretty good, not excellent.

Best scallops I've had on the island! We came in late with a party of 5 and service was neither lacking nor did we feel rushed! Everyone enjoyed the red rice as well as the homemade desserts!

Waterford is good place for dinner while on the island. Near downtown, if you can refer to a downtown here. Dinner this year was on Friday night and the place was crowded, had a small wait and you can spend some time in the gift shop if you like. We were seated as promised in about ten minutes. Service was... More

We took our party of 6 for dinner the first night we arrived at Edisto. We were seated promptly, the live entertainment was enjoyable, and we enjoyed our friendly server, who happened to be the sister of the owner. I ordered Sesame salmon and it was delicious, served with french fries and coleslaw. Quite tasty. Everyone in our party enjoyed... More

This restaurant had a large variety of dinner options available. All meals in our group were delicious. Everyone in our group loved the she-crab soup. Don't think anyone had any complaints. We had a larger group of 9 people that they were able to accommodate. Service was very friendly.

We ate here while on vacation, family group of 4 adults and 2 children. The dining room was crowded, but we waited just a few minutes. Our waitress took our order shortly after we were seated. She was very pleasant, answered questions, etc. Our food arrived quickly and was delicious! Seafood dishes and steaks for adults, chicken and shrimp dinners... More
