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.

This is a quaint, local place to eat. We've eaten there several times on multiple visits to the island. As for the earlier reviewer that came from Charleston nd was surprised at the small number of restaurants- this is a quiet, local, family beach. If you want more restaurant selection, it's best to remain in Charleston. They have all the... More

Small and original, not some chain crap. Wonderful atmosphere with friendly staff and good munchies.

McConkeys is a great burger joint on Edisto Island. It is unique because it is located on a porch with A/C and Heat. I would recommend visiting.
