Whenever we visit Edisto Island, The Old Post Office is the highlight of our trip. The food is out of this world. I personally could eat an entire plate full of their grits, but this time around, we ordered the filet mignon and "veal edistonian" which were outstanding. I also would highly recommend trying their crab cakes! When it comes to wines, make sure to ask for Toniann- who always finds the perfect pairing! Our servers were so accommodating- they made us feel right at home from the moment we stepped in. They refilled our glasses before they were empty, knew when we were ready for our next course, and allowed us to take our time and enjoy every moment! Please do not miss out on this incredible dining experience. The Old Post Office is the best in town!

My thanks to the staff for getting us in last minute Friday night. Party of six became a party of eight by the time we were done. Very good service and very good quality food prepared well. It's been a few years since we had tried them, and they really stepped up their game.

Was a great change of pace. Appetizer smoked sausage with black beans, nice salad. Spinach mushroom ravioli and a grilled salmon. Dessert was a chocolate pecan cake. All was great. Everyone visiting edisto needs to make the trip.
