Edisto Beach is relatively small and family oriented with only a handful of restaurants.The Waterfront Restaurant is one of the better "local" restaurant. It has the largest seating capacity on the island and can accommodate groups. They offers a wide selection of southern seafood items, fried or grilled as well as restaurant basi ... read more

The seafood was prepared very well.

Had dinner there tonight. 45 minute wait for a table. Server took orders fairly quick, drinks came quick. Then the wait for food. It took almost 1 hour to get our food only after the wait staff finally realized we had not been served. One person's salad was brought with the entree. Food was good wait time was absurd!

The shrimp in the Po Boy was great, but the rest of the sandwich was very dry. A little bit of mayo and tartar sauce did the trick. The fried flounder and grilled shrimp combo was awesome!

Yummy Fresh Fried Shrimp!
We ordered the family baskets of fried shrimp and chicken fingers; yum, yum, yum! The green beans were also delicious! We are planning to order take out again for sure while we are here.

The service here was unmatched as they accommodated to our very large group of 13 people. The server did a wonderful job interacting with us while she was busy working with many other tables too. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was enjoyable with family!  Next time I visit Edisto Beach I'll be sure to eat at this restaurant ... read more

Our group ordered four entrees, soup, sides and desserts. All were delicious,  I think the crab cakes were my favorite and the tuna was another win. The crab cakes were huge! The she-crab soup was creamy and full of crab. Even the green beans were fresh, tossed with olive oil and cooked perfectly. Hush puppies were good and you get a ... read more

We just spent a week at Edisto and were able to enjoy Waterfront takeout 3 times! Each time was amazingly yummy. The food was hot and fresh and tasted delicious.

I was so excited to eat some southern dishes while I was in South Carolina and The Waterfront has some of my favorite things - hush puppies, fried green tomatoes and grits.

The service was fantastic!  We had a great waitress and person in training.  They were polite and knowledgeable of the menu.

The hush puppies and

Awesome food. I had the Combination with 2 choices which were grilled shrimp and grilled scallops with grilled squash which was the vegetable of the day. They were a little short staffed but still we were able to get our food in a reasonable amount of time.

I decided to come here while vacationing, and I found it was very convenient and close to the campground I was at.

We were given a free basket ... read more

My husband and I are visiting Edisto Beach for the first time. I did a search for a good restaurant and “landed” the Waterfront. Boy we are glad we did. If you’re looking for a simple and traditional small town dive you’ll enjoy. The food was excellent. Their fish taco is made with fried flounder and is simple and delish. I chose to ... read more

Outstanding Meal!!!!!! A++++++!
My family and I were at Edisto during COVID issues. Waterfront was amazing. We ordered two flowers platters and a hamburger. Let me tell you everything we got was fresh and absolutely amazing. You won’t go wrong if you eat here!!!

March 2020 Edisto Trip - Waterfront
Our first visit to this restaurant. Everything was fine, service prompt and friendly. Good seafood alternative in Edisto, a bit quieter than some of the other places. Our party had crab cakes, shrimp, everybody was happy. Give it a try!

Great Local Food
Every time we go to Edisto we eat here, and we are never disappointed. Tasty local food including Low Country Stir Fry with big, juicy shrimp. Excellent shrimp and grits. Decor is understated. It's not fancy, but it's an island treat.

Aside from our unpleasant dealing with the hostess, the food was delicious. My husband ordered fried flounder and grilled shrimp. He said it was cooked perfectly.

This is the a great place to eat if you are with a bigger crowd in Edisto. The food is good. I've had the shrimp and grits as well as a seafood platter (not at the same time). It can become quite busy in the evening during peak dinner hours. Prices are reasonable.
