Very nice dinner...I had the shrimp cake dish which was delicious and more than enough.
Only thing I missed perhaps was an offering of bread while we awaited our entrees. My husband ordered the shrimp cocktail for an appetizer, which he shared, but a bit of bread would have been good.

We enjoyed another great meal at E & O. My husband absolutely loves the Pecan crusted quail. The food there never disappoints. As a local, I recommend Ella and Ollie's.

Clearly the restaurant was very busy. Even with a reservation, we had to wait 20 minutes for a table. Then we had to wait another 20 minutes to get a glass of water. When we asked for the water after our lengthy wait, we were told there were no clean water glasses!
Food was good as it always is.

Food was delicious ! Neat place in comfortable setting. Candlelight at tables, sat by the bar. Waitress was wonderful, but it just took a long time to get our food. We were in no hurry, however, we got there 15 minutes before our reservation, were seated around 6:35 pm and didn’t finish eating until 8:30 pm. It’s a fun place to dress up or down for a date night. Prices are on the higher side in case you’re looking for a cheap meal.

Ate in bar area. Lots of good "noise" to lend atmosphere. Service was very good, we were not seen to in a timely way for drink refills. Everything else was just fine. I look forward to returning.

After several years of trips to Edisto with the family, my husband and I finally ventured out to Ella and Ollie's and I'm so glad we did. The food was wonderful, and our server Mary Catherine was delightful and helpful with recommendations. It's peach season, and they shone in both the peach and burrata salad and the peach cobbler (which I'm so glad we relented and ordered for dessert). The fried green tomatoes were excellent, as were the scallop succotash and the fried shrimp. Everything was fresh, perfectly seasoned, and was the grapefruit margarita was just right. We'll be back on our next trip!

You have to drive to a gated community to get there and Google Maps continues to send you through the wrong gates. You'll understand when you try to visit. The gate you need is Dockside Rd. Also, the food was pretentious. Normal sounding dishes with weird herbs and seasoning is uncomfortable.
However, the service was outstanding.

The service was great and the food outstanding! We had one picky eater in our group who wanted a pepperoni pizza, which had been recently taken off the menu. Our server and the kitchen crew made it happen anyway! The beef short rib was fantastic, well presented, "no-knife-needed" tender, and perfectly complimented by the sides and sauces.

The food was hands-down the best we have had on Edisto Island! Everything was fresh, creative, delicious! Our server needed some basic sanitation education. She was running her hands through her hair, grabbing the tops of glasses where we put our mouth. It would’ve been nice if they would’ve opened the blinds after the sun set so it didn’t feel like we were in a cave. Edisto is so beautiful!

We were visiting Edisto for a week and had dinner at E&O twice. During the week it was busy but reasonably quiet. Friday night had live music. It was so fun—lively and busy but the service was still great. Will definitely visit the next time we vacation on Edisto Island!

The food was good, but very over-priced. Our pre-dinner drinks took more than 10 minutes to get to our table, and my husbands drink was made incorrectly.
Our server was sweet, but somewhat unknowledgeable about the menus.

Server (Jaynie) was simply horrible. Never introduced herself and was never polite. Smiled very condescendingly and without feelings. For and average of $30 a plate, I'd think the could hire someone polite and would care of their guests. As for price, there are 3 other restaurants... go there. Price does not equal quality. To be at a high-end restaurant on a high-end Island, they fall short.... very short on delivery. Go to Whaley's instead. T-shirts, shorts and flip-flops and cold beer. Now that was a place to enjoy!!

Brandon NEVER DISAPPOINTs!
The clams from Savanah were yummy and that short rib with Mepkin Abbey mushrooms was “like butter”. James was a great serve and even introduced me to a new rye.
My only comment would be that I prefer the other room with the bar. It is much more intimate and romantic
