“Poor quality food at too high a price.”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Went here before looking at reviews and shouldn't have. Food was not very good and cost too much. I paid $100 for 7 people and several just had a salad or an appetizer. Not a pleasant experience - money down the drain.

“Wow this was not a good experience!”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

I own a house on Edisto and thought we should try this place again. Last time we ate there, 5 years ago, it was fair at best. This time was horrible. My son had a cheeseburger and it was the best thing on the menu. I had a broiled seafood platter and could eat it... The crab cake was anything but crab. The service was the worst I have experienced. Edisto is not known for speedy 5 star service but our server was slow by comparison, non attentive and borderline rude. The menu is not clear but they charge extra for side items like fries with your cheese burger. I wish she would of gotten our order wrong and brought 4 cheeseburgers! 4 people and $95 later, we're heading for leftovers at home!

“Food is OK. Restaurant a bit worn”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

The food was OK but nothing spectacular. The restaurant itself had seen better days. Not sure if I would go again or recommend to anyone with transporation on the island to go elsewhere.

“Good food, slow service”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

The food here is decent, but the service was slow when we visited. There were several large parties that were keeping the servers occupied. We had the fried shrimp and seafood platter and both were good and fresh.

“Very slow, poor quality kitchen”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

Understaffed...took well over 90 minutes from the time we ordered to get cold bland food at $20+ per plate. Clearly, this place relies on on an endless supply of unwitting, one-time customers from the Wyndham resort across the street. There are numerous better options in the area.
