A very good place to stop on your way to Edisto Beach. Wonderful vegetables, already prepared casseroles, local products AND fabulous chocolate pie. While on a week-long vacation, we must have gone there at least 4 times.

We loved the write up on this place and so looked forward to its speciality Tomato Pie only to find it had gone out of business. What more can we say?

Sorry to report Main's Market was closed during our May, 2013 visit to Edisto. Local newsletters report the market lost its lease and might relocate in the future. Hopefully Main's will reopen as the home style meals were some of our favorites on the island.

This place is well worth the visit. The ambience is great and the staff is very helpful. Its outdated but once you taste the wonderful food,nothing else matters. The tomato pie is to die for. They wouldn't give me the recipe!!!!

We went for lunch and the buffet. The food is good old fashioned home cooked Southern food. Okra gumbo, red rice, tomato pie, squash casserole, as well as fried chicken and other meat is available.

I had the shrimp salad wrap which was yummy, but also had a side of squash casserole and it tasted to overcooked and mushy--definitely not made that day, or the day before. I'm a Southern girl and I know my Southern food. Add a little...More

Ate here with a friend during a week's stay on Edisto. I had heard many good things about Main's and maybe I was expecting too much. You can order either from the buffet, a typical meat and two or three, or from the menu. One...More

Good Gullah home cooking. If you find the surroundings too primitive, just order take out and eat it at home. You shouldn't miss the food just because the place looks bad. Don't miss the tomato pie.

An Edisto "mainstay", this is delicious Southern and Gullah-style cooking, fresh and astonishing. Yes, even from the steam table for lunch! Never had anything but a great meal here, and don't miss the frozen and fresh take-outs like Tomato Pie, fresh home made cakes and...More
