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 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

The restaurant was busy and it took 10 minutes to get seated. It was another 40 minutes until we got our drinks. Food was very nice though.

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!

We were happy to be socially distanced from other diners. We had a great view of the backyard edge of golf course and the deer that walked through at sunset. James our waiter was very nice and patient with us. Food was excellent.

We have dined often at Ella and Ollie’s and rarely had a disappointing meal. This was one of those rare times. We opted for the prime rib special for two. It came with smoked prime rib, “loaded” baked potatoes and asparagus. Initially, it was brought to us as a huge chunk of meat with two baked potatoes on top. Cheese, chives and sour cream were brought separately. We immediately asked it be taken back to the kitchen to be cut into reasonable sizes. That took awhile. By the time it was brought back everything was cold so the cheese didn’t melt on the potatoes. The meat was tasty but very tough. I will go back to the shrimp cakes next time.

Would give this place more stars but they were not willing to swap out sides. My friend wanted the tuna with the sides from the scallops but they wouldn’t budge. I mean how hard is it to do that - maybe I’m missing something!

Absolutely Terrible experience! My party of four couldn’t get waited on. We checked with the maitre d three times in attempt to get a waiter. After third attempt, he got us a round of cocktails on the house and an apologetic waiter who took our dinner order. One hour and twenty eight minutes later we walked out.
