Really southern

My second visit! Really southern cooking and a good price. It has a really unique style as it is situated in what seems to be an older southern home. There is a outdoor eating area on a real porch and in the yard. There is a bar area on the first floor. There are table seating on the second... read more

Went for lunch here this week with another couple. We arrived shortly before the lunch period was scheduled to end however we were greeted warmly and welcomed in. Our server was great (Greg). My companions all had the Shrimp Pasta which I'm told was amazing. I had the Shrimp & Grits which was also wonderful. In fact they won an... More

Definitely not a chain restaurant (although I do encourage you to try Poogan's Pit, also) and a great place to try for a different experience. We arrived for lunch without a reservation at 11:15 and were seated immediately. By the time we left around 12:30 there was a line forming down the hall, but everyone was seated quickly. I had...

They roll their prices back to 1975 every January....a great opportunity to do fine dining for $9.95. On any visit, the food is consistently very good and the service is great.

I went to Poogan’s Porch for brunch knowing I would get their famous Shrimp and Grits. I was not disappointed. Perfectly cooked grits, soft and delicious, covered with a delicious gravy of spices onions, peppers and sausage, with perfectly cooked shrimp. I only gave Poogan’s a “Very Good” because the building looked like it needed maintenance. The fireplace mantel is... More

We visit Poogan's often. Our favorites are the fried chicken and Gouda Mac and cheese - amazing! The fried green tomatoes and hot-from-the-oven biscuits are also winners! Eating outside in good weather is lots of fun.

It's a hell of a meal. Go hungry. There are so many places around town, but this one really made us feel like we were no longer surrounded by tourists...lol

Both places might not be comparable, but I loved the atmosphere of Poogan. The place is supposedly haunted, but it shows a lot of history and gives it even more character. We only had dessert, but the Pecan pie and the Apple pie were delicious ! Strongly recommended.
