We didn't have a reservation, but stopped in anyway. Found out they were all booked up inside, but seating outside was first come, first serve. We were seated right away at a small, intimate, table for two on the porch. Service was great, food was spectacular, atmosphere was lovely. Highly recommend!

We have added this to our top 5. Amazing. Food was wonderful and the atmosphere and service took it over the top. We both started off with wedge salads and the complimentary biscuits. Tasty as can be. My husband had the filet and I had the fried chicken with mashed potatoes and green beans. BUT my FAVORITE thing at Poogan's... More

Old house converted into restaurant with separate rooms. Loved it, felt special. Food was well executed and very tasty. Alligator bites to start - rare for us Englishmen! Enjoyed it.

This was the best duck breast I've ever had. Our server took amazing care of us...not too chatty and always there when we needed him. Whatever you do, don't deny yourself the peanut butter pie.

I had heard a lot of good things about this restaurant and it did not disappoint. I had Fried Green Tomatoes. Not the best but very good - nice and thick and juicy. My main dish was the extremely tender and moist beef short ribs. They melted in my mouth. The dessert topped off the whole meal - smoked strawberry... More

Poogan’s Porch is located on Queen Street a few blocks west of the Cooper River and Waterfront Park and several blocks north of the Ashley River. This restaurant is located inside an amazing, fully restored southern Victorian house. Outside the house there is a memorial to a dog named Poogan and it is near the porch of the house. They... More

I saw good reviews of Poogan's Porch online in a last minute decision on where to go dine with some friends (we're not from Charleston). Based on the reviews I saw, I had the impression that this place was laid back, relaxed, youthful...maybe even a sports bar. I was wrong! We walked in, saw the nicely dressed staff, were asked...

There are so many great restaurants in Charleston and for someone visiting for the first time it is so difficult to decide on that one special place. After reading many positive travel blogs and other reviews about Poogan's Porch, I made a reservation. We were very happy sitting on the upstairs porch. Unfortunately, our server , although polite, was not... More
