Make sure to call for reservations! The best quality food on Edisto Island. It's the only place you will have to dress nicer than a T-shirt and shorts.

My husband and I like historic buildings, so dinner here was a given when we were at Edisto Island. The historic nature of the building has been mostly remodeled out of it, but the food is just so good we didn't care.
