 Bad news from Edisto Island, SC

Bad news from Edisto Island, SC Sun, 06/22/08 11:30 AM (permalink)
I spent a good portion of the day on Edisto Island in South Carolina yesterday. Unfortunately, I discovered that the Ruby Seahorse Grill, Edisto Beach Cafe and Old Post Office are all closed down. Not a good day for me Roadfood-wise to find all of them out of business.

Also, The Bookstore Cafe in Mt. Pleasant is now called Charleston's Cafe. Same ownership and same good food.

      The young girl I talked to at the Edisto Beach visitor's center told me they have a constant turnover in restaurants. I wonder why that is.....

        I'd heard about the OPO closing. After reading the Stern's book about it, I had hoped to find a chance to detour over to Edisto Island.

          Old Post Office was the place that I was really looking forward to trying. I did still eat at the Pavilion and had a good meal with a great view overlooking the water.

            It's probably a cash flow problem since their business is seasonal. Can't make it thru the down months.

              Oops, I was there recently and could've saved you the trouble. (Actually had seen news of some of those in forums before I left...)

              Sorry. On the other hand it is still a gorgeous area! I camped at the state park there and LOVED it!

                You are correct, it had been mentioned before and I had missed it. There was talk that Old Post Office may just be remodeling, but they are definitely closed now. The woman in the art gallery next door said a new restaurant was going in that space and should be in there by Fall.

                You are also right that Edisto Island is really pretty!

                    I guess I had that coming! Why are you at the IU Medical Center? I hope everything is alright!

                        I don't want to give you the impression that I didn't have a good time on my visit to Edisto island. I was disappointed that three Roadfood places were closed, but I still had plenty of other places to try. And there is so much natural beauty there.

                        But, it still sounds like you had a much better time there than I did!
