“We have been to the island for the past three years. This is the first time we made it down to Whaley’s. While there is some mighty fine eating there at some of the other places, Whaley’s is hands down the best food on Edisto Beach! Don’t let the apperance fool you! Fantastic service and food I can’t say enough! This will be our number one place to eat from now on.” – Larry C. Stanley

“We pack up the kids and take the drive from Charleston to Edisto at least once a month for Whaley’s Sushi Nachoes (A MUST HAVE), fried shrimp (TO DIE FOR) and a bowl of grits, something about the Edisto water makes them SOOOO good! Pumped gas there as a child and prefer it over any restaurant in Charleston!” – Betz Woodhead Laster

“I’ve visited edisto my whole life but somehow just discovered you guys this year. Everything we had on our three visits to your restaurant was fantastic, but we were especially fond of your Bananas Foster Cheesecake. Will you share the recipe and/or do you ship it? Thanks!” – KG

“I’ve only been to Whaley’s one time, and I had the shrimp and grits. I tasted the shrimp and grits and immediately wondered if these are grits, what in the hell have I been eating up until this point. It’s been a little over a year now and me and my family are going to be returning to Edisto in the the coming week, and I will be there for a week. The one thing I am excited about doing is getting my hands on as much of those grits as I can get. I honestly was not expecting to put something in my mouth, find it so good and honestly consider driving 5 hours just for that. Hands down the best grits I have ever put in my mouth …. I seriously would have no problem eating a five gallon pot of these things. So, August 18 thru the 25th you can make a bet that my butts is going to be there.” – Chris Marshall
