Fodor's Expert Review Whaley's

$$ Edisto Island Seafood

This 1940s-era filling station—the pumps are still outside—has been converted into a fun and eclectic bar and restaurant where you're sure to find some local color. The menu ranges from bar food like buffalo wings and burgers to local shrimp, crab cakes, and pan-seared mahi-mahi. While the interior is a bit rough around the edges, with concrete floors and bathrooms outside, the beer inventory consists of microbrews, and the Monday night karaoke is a lively mix of locals and visitors. For fine dining, look to the Firefly Flounder topped with mango chutney and a sweet-tea glaze. Blues and rock bands regularly play on the weekends.
