Flowers seafood company is a local seafood fish store and a food truck trailer located behind the market. The food truck is open Thur.-Sat until 8pm. You place your order at the window and when ready they call out your name. They now have a covered picnic bench area in back where you can eat. The shrimp were of medium... More

Flowers Seafood is a little drive from Edisto Beach (about 10 minutes) but worth it. The shrimp was $1/pound cheaper than other places and excellent. In past years, we've done the seafood boil and were very pleased. They've added covered picnic tables and we plan on trying this next year.

Had the scallop basket, so good! Scallops, fries, hush puppies and coleslaw served with a great sauce for the scallops. They have a great menu. I believe they only cook Thursday-Saturday. Trailer is around the side of the building in the big parking lot. Don't miss this gem, the food is fantastic!!

Ordered a steam basket with shrimp sausage corn and blue crabs. Very tasty with an ample supply of food. Scallop basket and crab cake sandwich also good. If you are by the beach it is about a 12-15 minute drive to get to but well worth it.

We drove out here to have lunch today. We often love food trucks operated by locals, and this one did not disappoint. Great that they offer food for land-loving kids as well who dislike seafood! My boys enjoyed the chicken tenders while the rest of us enjoyed the shrimp baskets.

This is a food truck/trailer serving local fried specialties with some steamed options. They are often set up at festivals and special events at Bay Creek Park and at other times at their retail location on Edisto Island. Our first encounter with them was not great, but this past weekend at Edisto Eats we had steamed shrimp, fried softshell crab... More

Watching all these foodie tv shows got us excited about trying Flowers Seafood. The parking lot was full; it was lightly raining, there were 2 guys working the kitchen. We waited probably 20-30 minutes for our lunch. The food was delicious. I had the feeling like this place is no longer a secret and it knows it, and therefore charges... More

Pros. Fresh seafood... and bait. The prices here are extremely reasonable. Try to go early as they sometimes run out daily which is not necessarily a bad thing since it is fresh Cons. The selection is limited. And not overwhelmingly welcoming. Overall. I would recommend stopping at this place if you're wanting to cook your own fresh seafood meal or... More

The annual Flowers oyster roast was very nice. Well setup and organized. The oysters just kept coming and coming. Plenty of locals but lots of off-islanders also. The bonfire was superb; a delight for young and old. Because the Clemson-South Carolina game was on that night, a large screen was outdoors for all to watch...some enjoyed, some didn't. The roast...

Great place to buy locally caught shrimp. The blue crabs were good too. Some of the fish fillets looked a bit old. We have not sampled the prepared foods.

Description
This is a mobile kitchen parked behind Flowers Seafood on the way on to Edisto Island, SC. The family owns their own shrimp boats and sell seafood out of a small building near the street. When you order they pick out the fresh seafood and cook it for you. You eat outside under large Live Oaks with hanging Spanish Moss. I have photos to share.
