No worry. Everything was first class!! Fried oyster appetizer was incredibly perfect....light, large and tasty. Salad included with dinner was fresh and delicious. My entree of the veal... More

Food and service was excellent. Best grits I have ever had, staff was gracious and accommodating. Owners came over to check on how things were. Steaks were wonderful.

They did not have high chairs for kids. They had a piano upstairs with us. The staff allowed one of our family members play on which... More

My husband had the ribeye which he said was amazing. My shrimp and scallops grits were delicious as usual. We have never had a bad meal and our service is always outstanding. We always look forward to eating there when visiting Edisto.
