This is always a stop for us when we spend a week at Edisto. But, the food gets better every year and this time, they've outdone themselves. The appetizers in particular are off the chain. We ordered the crab stuffed, bacon wrapped, fried shrimp and...More

I am sorry but we do not take reservations being a small restaurant. If you have a big party we suggest that you come in early to make sure that you are able to seat together.
