We have been to Old Post Office a number of times and have enjoyed each meal. There is something for everyone, but the low country flavor should not be missed.

Been here many times, through different owners. Menu has stayed true to the original, with same offerings. Last night the zucchini was almost raw, not a good accompaniment to a fabulous scallops special and the salmon special. I always looked forward to the good sautéed...More

No split checks is our policy as is your 5% policy in regard to tipping. You were only asked if the service was satisfactory upon your exit. The menu states all charges for extras and there is no charge for the salad dressing. I would...More

The Old Post Office is an Edisto tradition. It has unique offerings in a quaint environment. The food was good. However, if you have dietary restrictions, then their menu will not be the best for you. It's small and specialized, but not flexible. You will...More

We loved the atmosphere of this place. The food was good, but not amazing. They were having trivia night just as we were leaving, but it looked like a lot of fun.

Thanks for the review but we don't offer trivia any night? Are you sure you reviewed the correct restaurant? Thanks again.

Foods of the South are designed by chef Cherry Smalls."Full bar. Serving dinner Tue–Sat from March–Oct, dinner Wed–Sat Nov, Dec and Feb. Closed Jan."This is the most prominent building that you're likely to see as you drive through the forests and fields across Edisto Island. About 5 miles from the beach, the restaurant was once a combination post office and general store, as its weathered clapboards and old-time architecture imply."— Frommer's
