“Nice taste of Edisto”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

We usually go for lunch and always have a good time. Our special waitress, Miss Elie, seems to be smiling whenever we are there. It is a VERY laid back kind of place, so don't expect a fancy place. But if you are looking for a fun place to eat, you will like Whaleys.

“Seriously overrated.”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

This was featured on a nationally recognized network as being a fantastic restaurant for local cuisine. The fact is we waited for over an hour to be seated and no one even apologized. The restaurant itself is dirty and crowded. The food is OVERPRICED AND OVERRATED. I could have easily made a better dinner. We love Edisto and have visited for years, but won't be back to Whaley's-ugh.

“Great service”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

We ate at Whaleys on our last day on Edisto and I'd have to say it was a great conclusion to our trip! Our service was excellent- our waitor (wearing an open top golf hat) was very personable and did a great job pleasing our large party. He was very familiar with the island and genuinely loved Whaleys. Thanks for a great dinner!

“Great dive place”
Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

Great food. Love the sushi nachos. So laid back and so goes with the Edisto feel. Seafood or burgers you will be happy with your choice.

“Such a treat!”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

I had eaten at Whaley's on previous visits to Edisto, but most of my family of 10 had not. We were seated fairly quickly although it was rush hour, and their reputation for award-winning seafood is well-earned according to our party. We enjoyed a variety of dishes, and all reported them outstanding! It is a simple, casual, beachy kind of place that speaks to the ambiance of the entire island. We loved it!
