“Shrimp and grits”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

When I am in the Charleston area, I want shrimp and grits. The Water's Edge has the best I have ever had. Sit on the balcony and you can watch the dolphins play while you eat. And the Sunday buffet is fantastic.

“Great views, wish the food was as good”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We used to visit Water's Edge more often than any other place in town. The view of Shem Creek and the festive atmosphere of the area was nicely complimented by great food. On our last two visits however, the food was disappointing. Calamari was almost firm enough to put on my bike. The crabcakes were dry. My shrimp and grits, my all time favorite was also dry. Admittedly the place was busy and it was a tuesday evening, but this used to be the place I took out of towners to enjoy the best of Mt. Pleasant. No more. Not even sure I want to give them another chance. The wait staff is great for a semi casual place, very friendly and fun. Still can't beat the views and fun of watching the dolphins in the creek!

“Appetizers and dessert to go”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

we had appetizers and dessert to go. The food was tasty though we thought the portions were on the small side and thus the value was only so so. The service though was impeccable. I was treated like royalty by the bar tender, Ty.

“Great Food - Sunday Brunch and Bloody Mary Bar”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Great place to watch people, boats, dogs, kayaks and the like. Bloody Mary bar was a hit, and the buffet looked great. I had fish and my Wife a shrimp poor boy. Good food, Great service, has an outside deck dinner area also. I would get a table on the water. It gets crowded early, and parking is a pain when it is crowded.
