I had the fried chicken and my wife had the pork chop. We highly recommend either. The macaroni and cheese is outstanding and is a must! We will certainly be back next time we are in Charleston.

My husband and I had lunch there last week. He had the fried chicken dish, while I had a lighter one with salad. They both were delicious, as I had a piece of his chicken, and we both had the biscuits!!! Yum!! We were told we had a 20-minute wait, which turned out to be only 10 minutes instead. Would... More

This restaurant is located in a historic house (complete with it's own ghost) and serves very tasty low country cuisine. If possible, get a table on the front porch. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. The prices are reasonable and the food was excellent. I had the fried okra (a special that night) and enjoyed it completely. I... More

My daughter and I managed to get a dinner reservation at this popular restaurant which is in an old historic house. We were seated upstairs outside on the balcony which was lovely on a warm Charleston evening. The food was absolutely delicious and the waiter was very informative and helpful. This is a restaurant where all visitors to Charleston should... More

My husband and I had lunch last week at Poogans Porch. We did not have reservations but was seated immediately. The wait staff brought biscuits and butter with our beverages right away. The biscuits were light and fluffy and just slightly sweet, awesome. My husband had sweet potato fries and a BLT, he said the fries were outstanding. I had... More

Poogan's Poarch is best described as "Wow"! Our server was absolutely fantastic and the food even better for a truly memorable experience. Even with 11 people in our group, our wait time for food was extremely short. And, our food seemed more off the grill than out from under warming lamps. Other places may have a more upscale appearance but... More

In our vacation with 3 other couples we had made reservations 3 weeks prior to our trip. Although it is in the smaller size and it is compact it was still an amazing experience . We never felt rushed, service was great, a slight joke about California's water shortage as our server was pouring our water - not realizing that... More
