“Great Jalapeno Poppers.”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Because it was an odd time, we were the only ones in the restaurant and received great service. We were hungry, but only wanted a snack to tide us over until dinner. My husband and I shared the poppers and a shrimp po-boy. (would have rathered oysters, but they were out) Poppers had a thin crispy crust and cooked to perfection. Large jalapeno you could actually see offset the cheddar cheese filling nicely. Shrimp was tasty along with the lettuce, tomato and onion on the lightly toasted bun. Very reasonably priced. Well drinks are also inexpensive. Hit the spot!
NOTE: My car was bombarded with seagull droppings, so be careful!

“Asparagus Fries”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Fabulous asparagus fries that are crisp and perfectly battered. Great special of a taco salad that had all of the great ingredients and large porportion. Upscale and low key atmosphere on Edisto Island, located in the Ocean Ridge Resort. Pricing reasonable. Staff was attentive and funny.

“Most beautiful view in the whole town! :)”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

We were able to eat a great dinner! Watch the water roll in, birds fly by. Get gift to take back home and party in the bar before heading back to the beach house! Had a blast can't wait to go again!

“The View Does Not Justify the Food”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

After a 10 year absence, spent a week at Edisto Beach to enjoy the spring weather. As the only restaurant still sited on the beachfront, the Pavilion is a landmark. Apparently, the owners have made no improvements in the 10 years and seem to be waiting for the wooden structure to fall into the sea soon. The inside is sparsely decorated, the tables are cheap, there is no AC and the dining area is poorly arranged. While on the oceanfront, most of the tables look out on the beach or parking lots. The lounge sits out over the ocean, so the view is limited but better than the dining room. The décor and food were blah. My shrimp scampi was served lukewarm with the cheese nearly solidified. The $4 well drinks were a bonus but not nearly enough to make up for the tasteless food and poor interior appearance. Friends on EB had warned us to eat elsewhere - we should have taken their advice; other nearby restaurants were excellent! In all, a less than satisfying, overpriced experience. Eat elsewhere on EI - you will be pleased.

“Pavilion”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

It does sit on the beach front and you can see the Atlantic. It's not awful, maybe they will get better as the season progresses, it was there 2nd weekend to be open. It was just average food.
