This restaurant was recommended to us by friends. We were not overly enthusiastic. The blueberry walnut French toast was yummy but the eggs benedict left much to be desired. Both were served with delicious fresh fruit. Restaurant was very crowded - you get bumped a lot while eating so just be forewarned. The waitresses were friendly but not too quick... More

I hate the term "charming", but it fits. The restaurant is small, you sit close to everyone in your party and at the tables around you without being crowded. The menu is affordable and has something for everyone but our group especially liked the pancakes and Shrimp & Grits (some of the best in multiple trips to the Charleston area).... More

Stopped here for breakfast on our way out. Waited about 15 minutes. Good menu and lots of specials. Enjoyed pancakes with delish fruit and hubs had an omelet. Highly recommend breakfast here!

Seating is tight but food is worth it. If you go with a big group, be willing to split up into smaller parties so you can get a table. It is a small place. Breakfast is southern. Full of flavor and cooked to order. They do not accept credit/debit cards. Bring cash.

We went there for a quick lunch. Had huge salads and bread... We showed up the next morning for breakfast and left with big smiles. The French Toast was some of the best I've ever had (and I eat French Toast everywhere!). The wait staff was very attentive and service was quite prompt. They do a heck of a business!

We visited the Sea Biscuit three times during our trip. I personally opted for, crab cake eggs Benedict, blueberry/ walnut French toast, and peanut butter/ banana French toast. All amazing, and would recommend these to anyone!

We always go to this place at least once per beach week, and fortunately we made it twice this year. The first time we had the tomato pie, which is just always good. The second time we went to the hamburger choice and were glad we did. They jazzed up the hamburger with not sure what, but it really made... More

Great place for a delicious breakfast, especially the children's pancakes decorated with fruit faces. Only problem was that it was, and usually is, crowded.

We've been going to the Seabiscuit for many years and it is consistently excellent. Charming little restaurant with delicious food. The Greek quiche was outstanding! The biscuits are wonderful! One of the best restaurants on the Isle of Palms!

My family always loves going to the Seabiscuit Cafe for twenty plus years. The good is always great, always perfect. The prices are higher as time goes on, but I always make it a point to have breakfast. I love the salmon patties. We bought a large sailboat for cruising and a second home, with three kids and a wife... More
