Our favorite for fried shrimp and other specialties. Nothing fancy, inside and outside dining (bring bug spray for outside) . Friendly staff, good menu selection, many beverage choices. Bottled water only because- well it is beach water so! Great grilled cheese, raw fries (chips).

Having eaten at McConkey's for the last several years on periodic visits to Edisto Beach, I have been pleased with their fish tacos, salads and fried flounder. Recently on a Sunday evening during the off season at the beach, there weren't many places open, but McConkey's was. I wanted something warm and spicy and the "Shrimp Gumbo" sounded perfect.

Food was good -- don't expect anything more exciting than standards like burgers and fries and fried seafood, but those staples are well executed here. Atmosphere incredibly casual, and service was friendly and timely. Only negative of our visit was the fact that prices seemed a tad high. Overall would recommend!

We liked it enough that we came back a second time. It is definitely a shack. Probably qualifies for "shabby chic". The food is fantastic and worth it!

This is one of the better food places on edisto. I eat in mostly but McConkeys is locally owned by family that has lived on Edisto for a long, long time. I always go there for quick lunch and sometimes pick up dinner also.

The fish tacos are always great. Also enjoyed the BLT with some fries. We always make the stop here while on the island. Great hushpuppies!

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.
