Waited 5 minutes to be served while waitress chatted up the table next to us and passed us a menu without a word to us. Left, went elsewhere.

The food was very good. I had fried oysters and chips and my husband had the fish and chips. Both very well prepared. The service was very good especially considering how crowded they were. We were given the option of sitting outside and since it was a beautiful sunny day we did just that. A very relaxing meal.

This is a quaint, local place to eat. We've eaten there several times on multiple visits to the island. As for the earlier reviewer that came from Charleston nd was surprised at the small number of restaurants- this is a quiet, local, family beach.

Small and original, not some chain crap. Wonderful atmosphere with friendly staff and good munchies.

McConkeys is a great burger joint on Edisto Island. It is unique because it is located on a porch with A/C and Heat. I would recommend visiting.

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.
