We took a day trip from Charleston to Edisto hoping to have seafood for lunch. Surprisingly there are not many places to eat here. We decided on McConkeys based on some fairly good reviews. It is basically a screened in porch on an asphalt parking lot. I was surprised at how expensive they were. For lunch, oysters and fries were... More

Oysters are expensive! But our fried oysters are delicious and if you can find a similar meal at a lower price, please let me know! Our fried oysters are a customer and staff favorite and I bet you would have loved them if you gave them a try! I am sorry you didn’t care for your sandwich. We sell a... More

...such that you have to walk through one side of the kitchen to use the one restroom in the place! Plan on eating out on the open deck and all will be fine. Food was okay, nothing spectacular. Would go back for lunch, but don't know about dinner.

This is not a high-end eatery. It is a beach restaurant with outdoor and porch seating. Good fried shrimp and great desserts! Good selection of beer as well.

Hubby and I were not impressed with the food here because it was saturated in grease. Quaint surroundings, but dining is on a porch.

-Just an average place. Cute, beachy, decor, but sticky tables and very routine bar food like quesadilla, hamburgers, and fries. I can't recommend it.

For lunch I had the shrimp and chips and my wife had a shrimp po-boy. The fried shrimp was the best I've ever had and my wife agreed. The batter was light but not too light and the shrimp was full of flavor and tender. Hush puppies were good and the sweet tea delicious. Oh, if you need salt, pepper,... More

It is a very casual dining atmosphere at the end of BI-LO's parking lot. There were 3 in our party. 1 had the hand padded cheeseburger which was very flavorful while the other 2 had the special of the night which was a roast beef sandwich covered in swiss cheese, seasoned waffle fries and tea for $9.99. The most fabulous... More
