Shrimp!
This is our second year vacationing at Edisto, and waterfront is always on our list. Our waitress was great, service was fast (for Edisto; it's an island, so be sure to adjust your expectations to the pace of the culture), and the food was really...More ... read more

Fabulous food!
Our first visit to this restaurant and it is now on the "must eat" list every time we come to Edisto Beach. For starters we had the hot crab and artichoke dip with homemade pita chips... divine! Then we had the best fried shrimp I...More ... read more

I have seen this place go through different ownership over the years and with that, changes in the menu. Staff is friendly. Food came out timely. We enjoyed it.

Good food. Nice young wait staff. Food was good and relatively fast. It's a little pricey, but it's the beach.

The food here is wonderful.  We had steak and seafood.  But the best part was the keylime pie, it was the best I've ever eaten.  Service was slow but they were packed.  Our server was on the ball bringing complementary hush puppies and drink refills.  It was a great experience.  We are planning carry out from here tonight!

The fried flounder was fantastic. I’m not a big seafood person but this was just so good. I didn’t even use or need tartar sauce. They seated us shortly before 3 when they close to prep for the dinner service which was great. The staff was friendly and didn’t seem mind at all serving us so close to closing.

Good seafood!
Our family went to Waterfronts early in the week and had a very good meal. For starters, we had the fried green tomatoes and they were good. The only problem was that put them on a bed of grits and I don't like grits. I...More ... read more

There aren’t many restaurants on this quaint island, but the Waterfront restaurant serves excellent seafood sand steaks. They offer steamed, broiled and fried seafood as well as pasta dishes. The coleslaw is unique and quite tasty. The building is older but is decorated in a...More ... read more

Truthfully this is the best restaurant on the island. A menu selection contains shrimp, steak, crab, chicken, salad, and the best variety of options. My food was amazing and did not take long at all. However if you want to go here (which you should) arrive early before 5 pm (4:45 in my opinion) due to the long lines and flocks of tou ... read more

Good Food and Service
Always enjoy eating at The Waterfront. Good food and service. Friendly staff. This place is always crowded so if you don't get there early, expect a wait! Recommend giving this restaurant a try on your next trip to Edisto!

Casual, really good local food at good prices. They have a robust lunch menu and a very extensive dinner menu. I believe they have breakfast and lunch buffets. The food is delicious. There's also a salad bar that is quite decent. Staff is warm and excellent. There's also a gift shop. Quite a few stairs to climb but I believe there's ... read more

Best food on Edisto
This place is incredibly busy, and for good reason. Really enjoyed the crab and artichoke dip, the snow crab legs and the prime rib. Alex, the bartender, did a great job with the drinks and service.

Good seafood but be prepared for a long wait. Not much shade outside on the benches. Good service. Limited parking - had to park across the road in the grass.

We had a WONDERFUL experience here. It was an hour wait on a summer Wednesday night which passed quickly with a cocktail on their patio.

Best food on the island
Delicious fresh seafood. We dined in twice. Friendly service laid back vibe. Live music. Highly recommend you order the low country broil to go. You can easily feed a family of 6 back in your room for under 40 bucks.

We went about 1:30 and it took a while to get our food. They have a good selection of fried seafood and only a few choices for grilled. It was good but not exceptional.

Got the scallop pasta dish and it was great. It was rich and delicious. I had to split it up into 2 meals. The scallops were beautifully cooked and the cream based sauce was good! Server was very attentive despite the restuarant being packed. Acoustic guitarist played next to the bar who was pretty good.
