    Charged a credit card processing fee of 3% on the bill. What? Waiter never mentioned this. This is BS. Who isn’t using a card these days. Terrible! Out of many menu items and expensive on alternatives. Been here many times before but really gone downhill. Love their sister restaurant Briny Swine. Will not be back to this location.

    This restaurant is in a convenient location and it is nice that you can make a reservation. Service staff was kind and attentive and the she crab soup and cocktails were delicious. We ordered the grit puppies to share and had high hopes but these were mediocre at best. The special was the fried tilefish which two of us tried. The fish was way over cooked. Not sure that it is worth the hype but might be worth a second try.

    The only reason I gave Ambience 4 stars was due to an issue with the AC, otherwise this would have been a perfect experience. Theresa our server, was a pure delight! Must try- She crab soup and the BBQ shrimp. Can’t wait to make this an annual destination.

    Food and staff were great as always. Friendly bar tender and waiter. Farm fresh vegetables are always great. Bar drinks made to order and came out perfectly. Shrimp and grits - best my guy had ever tasted. My beer can chicken over potatoes and veggies was so tender and flavorful. We will keep coming back. Always a great evening out at E&O!

    The food, as always was perfectly prepared. They charge Charleston prices, but the caliber of the menu and the quality of the food matches any place in downtown Charleston. We had to wait a little longer than we would have liked, but it was definitely worth the wait.

    We are regular customer. 3-4 times per month. Drinks are inconsistent. Yesterday ordered Dry Martini. Weak pour compared to previous visits. Also, host keeps trying to put us in a corner with no view. Food is excellent and main reason we are regular customers.

    Wish we had had as nice of an experience as others, but alas it was not to be. Booked this dinner thru Open Table on the recommendation of my boss who has been coming to Edisto for years. It was our 16th anniversary and we were hoping for a pleasant evening with great food. We were seated at a table for two but unfortunately the noise level made it nearly impossible for conversation. Our waiter, A..x, arrived at the table about 15 minutes after we were seated (thankfully we had menus and were able to view them). He rattled off specials, took our wine order and said he'd be back with water as well. Wine arrived, a very nice Pinot Gris, no water and we proceeded to give him both our appetizer order and entree order. He told us that the entrees would be dropped once we received our appetizer. By this time, a party of 8 was seated behind us that he was also serving. It became quite apparent that they would be his focus for the evening!! Our appetizer took over 45 minutes to arrive (by then we had been at the restaurant for over an hour), most likely due to being delivered to the large party behind us rather than us. We had to ask another waiter to get water for us as we could never get A's attention again to get some. At the 1hr and 45 minute point, the party of 8, all of whom had ordered after us, were all served their meals and we still did not have our 2 that were ordered ahead of theirs? At this point, my husband went in search of our waiter, A..x, to ask if there was a problem and was given a blank look and a shrug of the shoulders. At that point, my husband informed him to cancel our order and we left. 7 pm reservation and it's now 9pm. Needless to say, not the anniversary dinner we had hoped for as we had heard great things about Ella and Ollie's. I truly hope that they can pull it together, because the appetizer was fab, just would have loved a meal to go with it!!!

    Really good experience here on a first trip. Service was good and food was delicious. Appetizer was the grit puppies and they were really good! Fried flounder was cooked perfectly and the shrimp and grits is a must have. A little loud but otherwise a really great night!

    Most dishes were very good; however, much to our dismay the BBQ shrimp in Cajun gravy were not peeled causing a very messy ordeal. We must assume that this was not an oversight in the kitchen since neither the server, chef, or management offered any apology.

    Food is always good, and service is usually excellent. However, there seemed to be some confusion as to who was assigned to our table, and didn’t even get a glass of water for 15 minutes. Also the young woman who brought our bottle of wine, needs some training…she just plopped it on the table and walked away…no opening or tasting involved. We go there frequently, and will assume this was an anomaly. We will return, because the food is fab!

    We were seated for 20 minutes and no one spoke to us or brought water. I made eye contact with one of the waiters and they did not even speak! He could have at least said someone will be with you in a moment. They can do better!!!!

    Very noisy atmosphere. Our steaks were overdone; sides were marginal. High cost to value ratio. Didn’t want to make the drive to Charleston for a nice dinner. In retrospect, we should have.

    Our first trip to Edisto. Some people told us there weren’t any really good restaurants around. Well they were wrong. We had the most amazing food here. The tomato pie was out of this world. Our main courses were phenomenal and the icing on the cake was the peanut butter pie. Hands down the best peanut butter pie we ever had and we’ve had a lot. This place deserves 6 stars.

    We visit Edisto every other month and always have a meal at E&0. Last night was disappointing. After waiting longer than usual, our server brought two dishes and informed us that our third order was not available. Seems that this should have been known before two guests were fully served with one starting over. The full meal was comped - very nice! There have been two many good meals to let this one change our opinion. We will be back!

    Best place to eat in Edisto . Nice and quiet with good drinks - Good place for couples. Food is Better than Presley's. The Briney swine across the street from the Wyndham area is the place for relaxed oysters and BBq. This is a nicer place for date night ,steaks are good , Edisto Seafood Shrimp Cakes are great as is the Brasstown Beef Short Ribs.

    Service wasn't very great. We were definitely not greeted well and a group of 6 was treated much nicer at front than my husband and I were. They got seated immediately even though we had reservation as well and there were 4 empty tables we could have been placed at. Never got waters. Server was sweet but not very attentive. Food was delicious but pricey for the portion.

    The front room was reserved for a private party so we were seated in the bar area. Our waitress told us it had been a very busy night and she was very tired. She took our order and delivered our food but never returned for drink refills or to see if everything was good with our order. The bar area was very loud which is no fault of the staff, but our experience just wasn’t up to par with our typical time at E&O.
