First of all, we had a party of eight, and I must say our server was excellent. We started with the crab & artichoke dip for appetizers, then we collectively satisfied our own individual cravings. I had the Crab Cakes, and was very very happy. Others tried the chicken alfredo, the scallops, and the fried oysters. Our only complaint was that the broccoli could have been steamed a little longer. We went back again before the week was over.

Much better food than last time, which was in October. Talked with the owner, and he's a super guy. He backs his food up and we WILL go again. If you go, you GOTTA get a dessert,,!! My recommendation? Get your scallops grilled,,!! They are to die for!!

While staying in Edisto Beach, this restaurant was recommended by locals. We gave it a try!

We enjoyed our dinners & appetizer. Good food at a reasonable price.

The Crab Artichoke dip was excellent, we really enjoyed it. The Oysters & Shrimp were also very good.

We will definitely return.

Went for quick lunch midweek. Casual atmosphere, friendly staff. Food was reasonably priced. The grilled scallops and flounder were generously portioned and absolutely cooked to perfection!

We normally eat at the SeaCow or Whaley’s when visiting Edisto, but we decided to give The Waterfront a try. My husband ordered the Pimento Burger with fries. He said the burger was pretty good, but the fries were limp, mushy, and greasy. I ordered the Pecan Crusted Flounder, Grits, and Broccoli. I expected a fillet, but instead I was served a whole flounder (lots of bones in every bite!) The grits were tasteless, and the broccoli was rubbery. The corn-filled hushpuppies that came before our meal weren’t even particularly tasty. All in all, a mediocre dinner, at best. Back to the SeaCow for us.
