A few things to know: First, it's cash only, but they've recently added an ATM on premises. Second, the restaurant opens later (7:30) on Saturday than during the week. The dining area is small and some of the tables are outside on the screened in porch, but fans make it bearable. There are always some interesting specials on the board,... More

The atmosphere in this little restaurant was great? We arrived and were seated within 10 minutes. Very hot that morning and there was a crowd. One of our party had biscuits and gravy with 2 pieces of sausage, I had a slice of quiche, and one pancake, and the other party member enjoyed an Omelet. Everything was very good, but... More

Great breakfast! Small dining room but didn't have to wait long. The food was fresh and fruit on each plate was an additional bonus

Sea Biscuit is one of my favorite places in all of Charleston for breakfast and lunch. The menu is wonderful. Everything is made from scratch and is presented beautifully. There is always a "specials board" with things like crab omelettes, specialty French toast/waffles, homemade soups (i.e. She Crab, gazpacho), paninis and salads. There are plenty of healthy choices! Our food... More

I only gave average rating because it was breakfast. You can only make and eggs and pancakes so good. We were seated on porch, without asking and it was extremely hot, like almost 90 deg. They had several fans blowing, but blowing hot air only helps so much. Server was not very friendly, efficient, but not very nice. Overall, a... More

This is a small local place close to Wild Dunes, where we stayed. The staff is very friendly. The food is always good. Be prepared for a wait but the people do move along.

We visit I.O.P every two years for a family reunion and we have always made it a point to have breakfast here at least one time during our stay. The fool is always good with generous portions. Prices are very reasonable and their specials are great! Our waitress, Sam, is always pleasant and quick to offer suggestions on what to... More

I am picky when it comes to crabcakes. I don't like when they are too bready. These two as a side for $6 melted in my mouth woth just the right amount of crab. We came here 3 days of our vacation. Breakfast ends at 11 but, find a way to get there! My boyfriend loved the breakfast basic. Also,... More

Sea Biscuit Cafe is such an adorable little restaurant that feels like a blast from the past (no credit or debit cards!) We opted to sit on the screened in porch and enjoyed doses of sunshine and sea breeze with our deli sandwiches and teas. The staff was kind and attentive and very prompt. We loved the food and the...
