We tried quite a few of the local seafood restaurants. We we're let down by them all. However, there is a silver lining to the failures of the local seafood eateries, Edisto Seafood is a local fresh fish market. We purchased sword fish, mahi mahi, flounder, shrimp, and crab legs for a family fish fry. We were not disappointed. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The fish were fresh off the boat except for the crab legs which were frozen. Even with the frozen crab legs, it was way more economical and tasted much better than any of the other seafood on the island. I highly recommend buying from Edisto Seafood and doing your own fish fry over the other options.

Not a restaurant, but a small fish shop. There is a 5 pound special for shrimp. Upon taking the shrimp back to our beach house rental the shrimp were very clean, de headed and de veined. The shrimp were quite large and even when boiled very tender! We also got a large fillet of Mahi Mahi that was cleaned, looked beautiful, and was delicious!

We never leave the island without at least 5 pounds of fresh shrimp, and this place delivers Excellence!! They always have an offering of 5 - 7 different fresh seafood, on top of large and medium shrimp. And they have a modest selection of batters and spices for your seafood. The staff is friendly and professional, and always ensure you have the ice necessary to take your shrimp home with you, even if it is a 6 hour drive!

We are always looking for good fresh seafood. This place always had fresh shrimp and fish. We got 10 pounds of shrimp here in the week we stayed it was all delicious! Locally owned and the guy behind the counter was wonder and cheery the entire time.

Small place but great fish. We got shrimp that was just off the boat
and excellent. I almost left with huge piece of gorgeous grouper but as it was my close to the end of my visit, I was able to resist.
Will definitely be back here on my next visit.
