We had a wonderful meal at Ella and Ollies! They were busy, so initially we waited a bit for our drinks, but the service (Paula) was outstanding and the food was top notch. It was such a great experience all the way around. Don't miss this hidden jewel of a restaurant on Edisto! Our complements to the chef and staff!

Take Palmetto, to Lybrand, to Docksite to get there (Google Maps sends you to a private community gate otherwise). Easy parking with wheelchair access in the front. The tables were spaced well apart and servers were wearing masks. Our server was attentive and pleasant the whole time. The bar area has a good vibe. We sat at a (very) small table. I had the calamari (sizeable portion and zippy aoili sauce); my dinner partner had the French onion soup which he said was hearty. Our white wine bottle was chilled. Overall, the food was good, but the ambience was kinda meh...Maybe in the summer there is outdoor dining, otherwise it's a little boring inside. That said, the service and food was great.

We moved to the area in Oct, and visited Ella and Ollie’s for the first time on New Years Eve. We had the goat cheese tarts for our appetizer....SO delicious! I had the shrimp cakes and my husband had the lamb shank for dinner. Oh my goodness. Everything was amazing. One of the best meals we’ve had in a while. We will absolutely be back soon!

My hubs and I went for New Year’s Eve. When we got there, we were quickly seated. It was a nice atmosphere...quiet for our nice night out. As the evening went out, it got busier and noisier. We couldn’t hear our conversation because the surrounding tables were so loud.

The food was phenomenal!!!! Everything I had (chowder, shrimp crab cakes, and creme brûlée) was outstanding. My husband got the Caesar salad and filet and, unfortunately, wasn’t as excited.

Our waitress was a little slow but we weren’t in a hurry so we didn’t mind much. Also she was super friendly and helpful so it made up for it.

We thought the prices were a little high but that might be because it was New Year’s Eve.

Overall I would recommend and will return if I’m ever in Edisto.

It was fair. Waitstaff was okay. Had a bit of an attitude when I asked her to replace the burnt toast that came with appetizer. Shrimp appetizer was too salty for my taste. Pretty surroundings. She crab soup was good.

Food was excellent. However, one in our group received a dish he did not order. By the time the waitress brought the correct meal, everyone else was finished. No manager followed up to acknowledge or apologize for the situation. Very disappointing.

Red wine was warm...Wahoo was overcooked...service was excellent, love the decor and location. They need to cool the red wine a little as we have had the same complaint before. When you are paying over $100.00 for a bottle of wine you expect it to be kept in cellar.

Had a great meal as always! Our server James was great and very patient with our kids. I had the swordfish with crab and it was amazing. The fish here is always prepared over the most heavenly veggies - hard to describe since veggies aren’t usually the star of the dish but the flavor is really outstanding. My husband had the short rib, which is always a favorite. We are grateful for this gem of a restaurant, as most everything else on the Edisto is pizza or fried seafood - not that there’s anything wrong with that 😉

An absolute delicious meal.
I had the oyster skillet and had enough to have again at home. My husband had the meat loaf and declared it delicious as well.
A very nice night.
Oh, and the Margarita was 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

We dined at Ella and Ollie’s on the first night of our stay in Edisto. From the moment we walked in the door, this place exceeded our expectations! The atmosphere was wonderful. The service was exceptional and the food was delicious! We found it difficult to decide on what to eat as everything on the menu looks fantastic! To top it off, we even saw 4 deer grazing on the golf course right outside the window of the restaurant! I highly recommend eating here!

This is my first trip to Edisto Beach, and Ive been here 5 days. Until tonight’s experience, I had not found anything here that I’d consider “fine dining”. But I would consider E&O to be in that category. It was not quite up to what I’d expect from cities like Atlanta, but it was very good for this remote location!

Really good food. The best on the island. Our server was very young and a bit uninformed but she tried hard. They were out of virtually all of the beers on the menu but I guess that might be a result of distribution and Covid. We will definitely go back.

BBQ shrimp appetizer and the Short Ribs were delicious. Kid friendly and fair pricing. Best meal we had in Edisto this week. We will plan to visit again. Service was excellent. Server even chased us out to car because we accidentally left our credit card in the tab. Highly recommend!
