We wanted some seafood. So we googled the closest place to eat with seafood. They have a spot to eat outside by the water, inside by the water or a regular area inside to eat. Portion size was good for lunch, but we got there around 3 looking for late lunch early supper. The waiter was very friendly.

The best location and drink specials for happy hour. They offered half priced appetizers too, but we did not partake. Nice, attentive bartenders, a charging station on the bar, and a great view!

This is the second time we ate at the Water's Edge on Shem Creek. Both times service, food and elegant atmosphere were excellent. It is pricey, but worth the visit if you're on vacation. I recommend reservations at least 1 day prior to your visit. We made reservations earlier in the day for that evening and the only thing open... More

This was the only place that could accommodate a large party. Turns out this was the perfect place. Great atmosphere and awesome Shrimp and Grits! Prices on par with other restaurants along Shems Creek. You don't have to go into Charleston for great food and this was a mile from our hotel!

We decided to dine here for brunch and I'm very glad we did. The wait service was wonderful, the view was quaint, and the food was fantastic. We had the buffet & each of us had an omelet made, which were very tasty! Will be back soon for more tasty food!

I went with my parents and upon being seated we waited 20 minutes before flagging down a server for water then 10 minutes later our waitress finally came and apologized as she said they were busy. We asked for an extra glass and napkin which we never received. Once we got our food (shrimp and grits, grouper, duck salad) the... More

We ate here twice during a recent trip to the Charleston area. The first night I had the shrimp and grits. I was a little skeptical when I first saw the grits but they were delicious - coarse ground and retaining great corn flavor. Our server steered me away from my first wine choice and the one I had was... More

For someone new to the area, you have many choices of restaurants in the Mt. Pleasant. To combine a water view, sunset view, cleanliness, and good food, my vote goes to "Water's Edge". It's bar is separate. (No beer smell.) The eating area is raised outside, over the fishing pier. The inside has full glass windows on the water's edge... More
