Reviews

I had initially left a bad review, meant for Coots Bar and Grill. This place was a great restaurant and we enjoyed brunch there!

First Meal on Edisto Island, Great Start

We landed at The Waterfront Restaurant and turned out to be very good. We received great recommendations from our server and the food was terrific. We had ... read more

Great food and friendly staff. If you like french toast definitely try it here. The crab cake sandwich was really delicious. Will for sure be visiting again on our next trip to Edisto.

I love fried seafood but not many restaurants get it right. It is usually too bready or too greasy. But the shrimp here was perfect as was my husband's flounder. The fries were amazing - almost like home fries rather than those stringy fries you usually get. The coleslaw was excellent as well - not just cabbage and mayo like so many ... read more

Super cute little restaurant with a little lighthouse out front. Upon entering we were immediately sat by the hostess (granted it was 5:30 in the middle of December). Our waiter, Jeb, was fantastic.

Although this is off season, the restaurant was busy.the food selection is great and better yet very good. My husband loved the fried flounder and the shrimp creole was delicious with a good amount of large shrimp in it. The chocolate cake was outstanding and definitely big enough for two.

Just what we wanted - good food and service.
We were glad they were open Thanksgiving weekend, and pleased with the food and the service. Jeb was a great server and we will return next time we come.

Great lunch!
Excellent food! I enjoyed the chicken ranch wrap with side salad. Salad was fresh ingredients. Husband enjoyed the lunch buffet & everything was plentiful & tasty. Friend joined us & enjoyed fish tacos. Everything tasty!!! Staff a bit slow but problems with computer could have been the culprit. Would return if back in Edisto !

This was our first visit there as we stopped in for lunch. My wife & I both had the Shrimp Po Boy. We both agreed one of the best Po Boys we've ever had! The bread they used was very good and we each of us had plenty shrimp. The Fries were good as well - kind of a unique shape, but flavorful. Our waitress did a great job as well. If ... read more

went out for a nice dinner while at edisto. Service was great, food and drinks were wonderful. Prices were a bit high for not being a top end restaurant and they charge and tax credit cards. Would have paid in cash so as not to pay the extra fee, but it was included in the bill. I'd go back, but it may not be first choice next time.
