Found this on diners, drive ins and dives. Was a little concerned about the mixed reviews we saw but decided to stop and give it a try. Glad we did. Friendly staff. Family oriented, fun atmosphere. The burgers are delicious! So are the onion rings. You can tell they are all freshly made. My daughters chicken Caesar salad was huge!... More

Not a bad burger joint. Service was good and onion rings rocked! Burgers were good sized and had some unique combinations. Will be back here for sure.

Great place to stop for a bite. Parking is a challenge, especially during the lunch rush. About the only place that serves a burger big enough to satisfy my 13 year-old's appetite. Have already returned again and plan to whenever in the area.

Always a great burger with generous sides and a decent beer selection. Family atmosphere except on game days. It is a college town. The Edisto is my favorite burger on the menu.

We stopped on our way from Charlotte to Charleston. We saw this on Diners, Drive ins, and Dives. We sat on the deck outside. It was a nice, relaxed atmosphere. The burgers were good (but my husband and son thought it could be seasoned more with salt and pepper). The crawfish appetizer was very good. The kids all liked it.... More

We first visited this restaurant on Mother's Day Sunday in 2012. Our daughter found it on TripAdvisor and it came highly recommended, and had been visited by Guy Fieri. There is always a wait, because this is a popular restaurant, but it is worth it. On our most recent visit in April, 2015, the food was as good as ever,... More

Looked for a restaurant that was featured on the Food Network's Diners Driveins and Dives....this was a winner! They are noted for their distinctive burgers and "real" french fries.....neither one was a disappointment!! Had the Isle of Palms Burger.....freshly ground beef (seasoned), topped with pimento cheese with a touch of jalapenos...oh, did I forget the BACON...never...it was delicious! So glad... More
