Reviewed October 23, 2012

Great food and well worth visiting. The staff are very friendly. The food is fresh and trendy. Fish is excellant, chili is awesome and the pulled pork tacos were a new experience and were very good. We make sure each time we visit Edisto we vist McConkey's!!!

“Best Burgers going ... well worth the drive”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

McConkey's makes the best burgers I have eaten in SC. Lots of choices for toppings and sides. The home-made chips are great. Atmosphere is rustic and outdoors (screened porch) about 300 yards from the beach. Nice people there to serve and cook ... it is a great neighborhood place to eat ... even if you have to drive 35 miles to get here from Charleston!

“Doesn't look like much”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

This humble little "shack" doesn't look like much curbside but if you are in the neighborhood give it a shot. A quirky little beach porch puts out some amazing food. I ordered the fried shrimp and I will probably never eat a fried shrimp again because they will never be this heavenly. Fresh jumbo, juicy shrimp dipped in beer batter, the house speciality.

“Another great Island place”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Had lunch here after a round of golf. I had the fried shrimp, my favorite, and my buddy had the Mahi Mahi Taco and LOVED IT. He has lived in Hawaii and is a native west coast guy and felt it was the best he's ever had. My shrimp were great. Service was great, and we loved the atmosphere. No doubt we'll be back here again. Fun place with really good food.

“Nice place for lunch”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Good food, be sure to try the onion rings, best I ever had. Quirky atmosphere. Service was slow, but they were very busy.
