She crab soup was delish

Arrived around 1 pm on a thursday, was dining alone and only had to wait 10 minutes for a table. Probably just lucky timing. Had the she crab soup and the friend green tomato blt. I loved the flavor combinations of the sandwich but found the sourdough bread made it a messy eating experience. The... read more

I recently took my family to Poogan's Porch while they were in town and must say this place is absolutely amazing! We arrived early and our table wasn't ready quite yet so we were seated at one of the community tables. Within a minute of seating one of the bartenders came over and introduced himself, Joe was his name. Ryan... More

We really enjoyed our meal at Poogan's Porch. It has a great history and was actually featured on a ghost tour as well, which our children thought was cool. We got a reservation on open table the night we ate there. Our waitress even brought us a free sample of the she crab soup.

If they've been doing this for nearly 40 years, my hats off to them. Best meal I've had all week in Charleston. Fried oyster salad...spectacular, especially on the front porch and taking in the beautiful surroundings with a glass of pino gris. Main dish was bay scallops and pimento cheese ravioli with creamed corn succotash. Delicious! Bread pudding was a... More

Great Lowcountry cuisine with a little culinary flair. I definitely recommend the macaroni and cheese. It's made with Gouda cheese. The fried chicken was great too. You need to make a reservation though.

We stopped in at Poogan's for lunch today! It's a classy little restaurant in downtown Charleston! So amazing that it is in an old house full of Charleston character. Now the food... oh my... so good!! I know it sounds crazy, but try the grilled cheese. This is not your average grilled cheese... bacon... tomato... pimento cheese... all between slices... More

Highly recommended! I visited Poogan's Porch based on a referral from my tour guide in Charleston. It was about 2pm. After reviewing the brunch menu, I selected the blackened catfish dish with black eyed pea succotash, 2 eggs over easy, and a bourbon gastrique. Upon my first bite I was bowled over by a wonderful balance of flavor from the... More

Delicious food. Incredible service. Wonderful atmosphere. My friends and I were traveling to Charleston for a week and decided to participate in a Charleston “ghost tour” (also highly recommended!). One of the destinations on the tour was Poogan’s Porch. The food came highly recommended by our tour guide. We decided to try it for lunch the next day. This old... More
