Food quality was very high across several different entrees. She crab soup, pecan crusted flounder, steaks, pasta, key lime pie and much more. Service was excellent and very little wait time. Kids were welcome and prices ranged from $15 to $24 for most entrees. I had the pecan flounder, bone in, with a marmalade type sauce that was ... read more

Awesome place! Low Country BLT & a Lefty Loosey Pale Ale with the Edisto Air Force in the distance keeping watch.
Daren Allen via - May 20, 2019
Very popular place
We ordered carryout rather than deal with the wait at the restaurant. I had the pecan fried flounder and my husband ordered a crabcake. Both were very good and there was enough flounder left for lunch the next day. The restaurant doesn't take reservations and...More ... read more

Every order was perfectly prepared and served. The seafood is so fresh and delicious and frozen margaritas were delicious. Will be back within the next few nights.

Great food! Probably won’t go back on a busy holiday but will go back on a regular day.

We really liked this place. Their seafood is fresh and local. I usually dont like fried seafood but this restaurant was different. Everything is lightly fried and not permiated with oils and with tons of breading. The fried oysters were delicious ! So soft and fresh and the owner is a pleasant man. Very nice and calm.

Good for takeout dinner
Since we were staying at the Wyndham Bay Point and had a balcony overlooking the water, we decided to do takeout (especially since despite its name, the Waterfront Restaurant in its current location is not waterfront). My wife had the pecan crusted flounder and I...More ... read more

Nice Food - Reasonable Prices
We had dinner here on our 1st night in Edisto and were very pleased. The grouper was very nice as was the shrimp. They had a few local craft beers which we tried and were also very pleased.

I am visiting Edisto Beach with family. We went to Waterfront on a recommendation of another family member. Everyone's food was first class! The seafood was excellent! The service was just right. We walked right in and were seated. When we left, there was a waiting line. I had shrimp & grits. It was very good. The only comment that I ... read more

My boyfriend and I came here for lunch yesterday,and we were beyond pleased! We both would go as far as to say the flounder was the best we’ve had..ever! Service was great,nice view of the beach..we live an hour away but we will be returning anyway!!
Eileen Ann Cooke via - Apr 28, 2019
The She Crab soup was good (a touch too sweet). My husband got the all you can eat shrimp (several came with their dirt veins) but each serving was substantial. The crab dip was yummy. Service was pretty good. Still not sure how it got its name. Not on a waterfront....

Fantastic place! All you can eat crab legs! They just kept bringing them. Highly recommend but get their early when they open or you will be waiting 2 hours plus.

The people here are the best and makes you feel homey. I had me a crab cake sandwich and it was amazing, I don't even like tomatoes and I gobbled the thing down.
Peter M. via - Apr 14, 2019
Absolutely delicious seafood for lunch! My family came here after some time on the Edisto beach and this place wasn't too busy, and I have no idea why! The flounder was the best fried flounder I've had anywhere, and everything I tried was phenomenal. I would definitely be back when I am in the area.
Robert Maxwell via - Apr 14, 2019
Their shrimp and grits were outstanding and my husband recommends the fried shrimp!!!

Daily all you can eat specials
Had the all you can eat low country boil dinner and it was excellent. Had a guy at the bar singing and he was entertaining but other than that no real atmosphere. Service was excellent and they kept the food coming.

As luck would have it, the day we visited was AYCE crab legs night. We all opted for the snow crab feast. You get one side which was not AYCE which was okay (more room for crab). The service was very good as they made us feel welcome and checked in on us often when we were ready for the next round. The crab was the sweetest I hae had ... read more

It's everything you could want in a beachside seafood spot. Fried platter is the way to go.
Brian Rowe via - Apr 6, 2019
Very good food for a reasonable price in a casual family atmosphere. I had the fresh grouper. The restaurant is apparently owned by a local seafood company, which may explain the quality of my fish. The sides were also good: hush puppies, slaw, and broccoli. The desserts come from King's market so they are reliably local and deliciou ... read more

We stopped by on a Friday night. We were with another couple and we both ordered a seafood platter. Everything was delicious, but especially the flounder which was fried. The lightest, tastiest I’ve ever had.

I would have given 5 stars but the Guitar Man that plays for entertainment is less than desirable. Food is excellent, as well as service.

We did the breakfast buffet and it was great, the best cheesy grits I have ever had. The Old Bay Bloody Mary was awesome with a kick! When we were leaving the other side was packed for their lunch buffet, we will be back.

They have the best seafood in town. the blk tuna was superb. it is clean and family oriented. The beach is just steps away.

Good place to have dinner. Casual, local diner type of atmosphere.
First, the restaurant is not water front and is a very basic diner-style with wooden booths. Nothing fancy. Great for family groups with children. The food is good and worthy of a return trip. You're not going to find anything upscale at Edisto Beach. There...More ... read more

If you're looking for seafood, I highly recommend. They highlight the crab cakes and shrimp and grits as specialties and they were excellent.
