We don't eat out much; I find CHS restaurants overpriced and pretentious . EO was none of these. We opted to eat at the bar because the bartender was such a nice guy. Service was great, beer was great, food was great. We'll be back soon.

My wife and I dined here on a Friday night as a late Valentine's celebration. Our waiter provided excellent service. Very knowledgeable regarding the menu including the drinks, and provided helpful recommendations when I let him know what my general tastes were. He was happy to let my wife try out a couple of the beers before making her full order.
We ordered two appetizers, the corn bread and the giardiniera (pickled vegetables). The vegetables were excellent, but the corn bread was fairly ordinary. Not quite moist enough and no variety in texture.
For entrees, she ordered a vegetable soup (can't remember the exact name) and I had the dry aged meatball. Her soup was excellent. My matball needed something more to cut the acidity of the red sauce. I checked the side options for something I could have paired myself and found nothing suitable. I recommended to the restaurant that they add a starch such as gnocchi to balance the acid a bit.
In general, the meal was very enjoyable. The waiter paid us enough attention while not rushing us in the least. The noise level was enough that we were able to easily talk to each other and not feel like we were in a crowded bar, even though most tables were filled.

I had the hangar steak which was delicious with hash browns with poached egg in the center and my husband had the special which was short ribs in pasta in a very tasty sauce. We both enjoyed our meals and the great service provided

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we were not disappointed! It is very open and can get a bit loud but not overwhelming; and we like that for casual dining anyway. We had the best server we've had at any restaurant in a long time; Larissa! My husband is the GM over two restaurants in Hilton Head Island, so we "test" other restaurant food and service a lot and we are big foodies. If we lived closer my husband would definitely tried to lure Larissa away to come serve in one of his restaurants; she was that good and that pleasant! As for the food and drinks, We LOVED everything we ordered! The Chicken Pate and the hanger steak w/ a PERFECTLY poached egg were my favorites with the pickled vegetables coming in a close 2nd! If I could think of anything to complain about it would be that everything, except the pate, was really heavy on the salt; and I love salt, so that's saying something. I'll simply ask for light salt next time AND there will be a next time!!

I enjoyed the decorating and the open tall ceilings and high back leather chairs. I enjoyed this restaurant for drinks and cheese/ charcuterie with a friend. Nice beer drinking atmosphere! The staff was friendly and accommodating. The waiter was professional. Thinking it would be nice to have dinner with my family. I made a reservation for two weeks out. It was very loud for dinner and I didn't enjoy it as much the second time around. The wine selection was not as varied as I would have hoped. It's a great place for beer, but there is a need for a variety of less expensive items on the menu.

We came because of a friend's recommendation.
Our visit exceeded our expectations! The food was amazing, atmosphere was fun. Great environment inside and out. Love the in-house charcuterie! But, the absolute best part of our visit was the service! Who says that?! From the hostess, who asked if we had been there before, to the server who got that message ( I think Jessica - could kick myself for not being sure!). Our server absolutely made our visit!! Described and recommended perfectly! A personality one would want all our employees to have.
Fabulous experience! Thank y'all!

We have eaten here several times. The food has always been creative and delicious. Tonight was no exception. However, our experience was marred by the noise level. We had difficulty hearing our waiter and conversation was almost impossible. There was a large group of people standing behind us drinking beer. They may have been waiting for a table. They were quite loud. At one point, one man started leaning on the back of my husband's chair. We will return for the food, but will make sure to ask to be seated in a booth.

A friend and I went to Edmund's Oast for brunch. We loved the cheddar bisquit -- plenty big enough for 2 or 3 people. The blueberry roll would have been much better if it was warm. Beet salad was very good. The croquette was huge and delicious, definitely enough for 2. Lots of wine and beer choices.

We have dined here many times but were disappointed in the new menu. Gone are the small plate offerings that we used to love for their variety and great tastes. Entrees are good but horribly over priced. $26 for one small piece of fish and a plate full of fries is ridiculous. Drinks are likewise overpriced. Beer glasses are not fully filled and $12 for a tiny cocktail is not something we would chose to return for. Bottom line, if you want good, overpriced food and drinks, this is your place.

Great table/booth for a large party. Outstanding service for 6 adults during brunch, team like delivery/bussing led to quick and great brunch. Smaller menu than most brunch locations and small portions led to only 4 stars for food

Good and ambience are what I go out for. Both were wonderful. We ate outside on January 18,2017. The only thing I would suggest is some
Sort of a sound barrier between the dining area and the road. The road noise was loud.

It's always a treat to go to Edmund's Oast. The beer recommendations by the server were great. The food was delicious. Our only disappointment was that the cornbread wasn't available at Sunday brunch. We do love it, so were sorry to have missed it. We understand it is on the dinner menu.

One of our favorite special event places. Birthday brunch and the food/service met expectations. Waitress (Caroline) offered to by us dessert for my wife's birthday. We didn't take it but the fact that she did shows the character of the restaurant.
