Was good but I didn't realize it was a gastropub, not quite my thing. Sat at the chef's bar, so we watched all the action in the kitchen, making it more fun. And the staff was very accommodating, very good service.

My girlfriend and I visited from out of town and heard about the awesome beer list here, so we came for dinner and were not disappointed. The hanger steak & butternut squash were delicious. The broccoli rabe was a bit overly mustard-tasting. The wreckfish was tasty though a bit too thick of sauce paired with polenta.
Excellent meal, would give 4.5 stars if possible.

as always, it was wonderful. We had the tempura fish and chips, a wreckfish "jowl," and the pickled shrimp. My guest lives in Atlanta and just wanted seafood. The waitress was charming and all of her suggestions were excellent, especially the magnum of wine that was being poured by one of the owners. very much a favorite.

This was my second time at Edmund's and it was just as fantastic as the first! My family was in town for our first visit in almost a year, and I wanted to take them somewhere special. My sister and I both have celiac's disease, which often means we have to walk the line between convenience/safety and quality of food/options. That is never the case at Edmund's. The servers are exceptionally polite and take our note of celiac's with a degree of seriousness that puts us at ease in a way we don't often experience when eating out. There are so many gluten free options and they are all above and beyond the quality of the options I have found anywhere else. Incredible service, fantastic food, good drinks, and all reasonably priced. We had an excellent experience and will be back soon!

My wife and I and another couple had dinner at Edmund's Oast after a play at Dock Street. This was not our first visit to this place and we were looking forward to the dinner. The food as usual was wonderful, the service not so much. To start we ordered wine and I ordered a beer, the wine was served at least 10 minutes before the beer (no it was not draft so a blown keg was not the issue). I had to flag down the our server and ask where my beer was. After getting our drinks we ordered 4 small plates to share, again the food was wonderful, but we had to ask the server to remove the empty plates after we ordered the main course. We ordered desserts and it took over 20 minutes to receive them, yes the server took them off the bill when we brought it to his attention on how long it took.
I hope this is a fluke because I do like this restaurant. Charleston is way to completive to have poor service.

Food ad amazing. Beer was almost to original to make a decision. Wish we lived nearby, we would frequent. Only issue for us was a server at the chef table bar that seems frustrated that we had a charcuterie and drinks and. Ever ordered an entree. The menu leans itself to tasting but he seemed to think he was in a traditional establishment.

Had early reservations but when we arrived waited in line whilst the hostess spent an overly long time chatting to a family that did not have reservations . No one smiled or greeted us . She said can I help you accusingly ..when our server came Took forever to get drinks . Our large charcuterie was disappointing we have eaten there several times and love the presentation on a wooden cutting board . They have switched to a china platter w curved edges and a piece of cardboard sat under a dish of inedible super salty topping . Not enough cold cuts or cheese too much pate it was not a fun appetizer as we usually Get . Not enough to share among 3 people . Asked for extra bread . My husband had a burger my son the beef tartare my fish was good but the sauce was very salty . The desert menu has changed and not even our 6 year old could find anything he liked so we asked for the bill and left . My husbands beer choices were good . I was not happy with. 12 dollar Chardonnay so had one . The ambience was great and the restaurant was buzzing but the outdoor area where we like to sit was reserved for a special occasion . Looking for a new favorite place .

This restaurant was recommended by the mother of the groom as a place for us to dine the night before a wedding we were attending in Charleston.She is a foodie so I knew it would be good but it exceeded our expectations.The whole experience was great.We started with their charcuterie plate and small plates such as pickled shrimp,meatball,spaghetti squash.Chocolate torte for dessert was fabulous.I had their Lager beer which was well explained on the menu.

The ambience was great, but a little noisy. Our waitress was so friendly I felt she was a family member! So much fun and so nice.
We waited way too long for dinner, but the food was wonderful when it came. The staff did apologize for the wait. It took about an hour and 15minutes before we got our dinner. The food was pricey but worth it. My son said the whole place reminded him of Charles Dickens. I loved the dried meats hanging. The charcuterie was wonderful and fun!

The food was very good and the server was on-point. Overall, it was a great experience.
As is the case with most high-end restaurants, the portions were a little small- even after the charcuterie appetizer. I stand 5'7" and weigh 150lbs, so I'm a small guy. I would recommend getting some side dishes to fill the meal out a little more for most people.

Very interesting and tasty food and combinations. Server offered a complete description of the various items on a large tasting plate. Wine is extremely expensive except at the bar during happy hour. Beer is a better deal.

Great, fun place, especially for groups of friends age 21 and over. Extensive beer list, nice wines but pricey, and offers fun activities (bocci, ping pong, etc.). Lots of free parking not to be found in downtown! Less than $10 Uber ride each way.

I went with my sons on the early side. Although we have lived here for a year, I have never dined here before. I will certainly put Edmunds Oast at the top of the list! The okra is a dish that I'm still thinking about.....and I don't even LIKE okra!
There is a great looking outdoor area (dog friendly) that I will request next time.
I had the flounder, one son a burger, another the fish and chips. We were all so happy! This is a great crowd pleaser with super fresh produce and good size portions. I recommend it!

I had two small plates: Butternut Squash with ricotta, hazelnuts and pomegranate and the Bagel with Lox. Both were yummy. My husband had the Tempura fish. The names of these dishes do not do them justice. There were layers upon layers of flavors but all complimentary. We were there early, and even then, it seemed a bit noisy for our preferences.

Amazing time at EO. Each bite was delicious. My wife & I typically order differently (2-3 apps and share a main) and they didn't blink that we weren't both getting entrees. So, we got the perfect amount of food, fully enjoyed
Spoke with other locals in the hosptiality Biz locally, who claimed it was their fave local spot. Extensive, yet reasonably priced beer list, too.

This is a great spot altogether, amazing food, happening spot with a good atmosphere and great service. I had the chicken and I have to say it was incredible, I was smacking my lips! Our waitress went out of her way to serve us and the beer selection is incredible. Who else has Peanut Butter n' Jelly Beer??? great
