First, we read a few negative reviews about how the food was "like Applebee's" and the service was slow. Our service was average I think, our waitress did not do anything badly but she was not outstanding either. Just good, quality service and in this day and age, that's what we look for. But the food was top quality. I... More

We went for a late lunch even then the restaurant was packed, this say something. Savannah was our fist visit to the south and the food here did not disappoint, it was wonderful. Our server was very attentive and friendly even offered some suggestions. We enjoyed the old home, wished we had a little more background info on it but... More

My husband and I went for Brunch- we were highly recommended this place by several friends so we decided to go. The atmosphere is wonderful and there's a lot of history at this restaurant. Our food was really good but with other comparisons of places we went like Hominy Grill- we probably would go back to Hominy Grill before Poogan's... More

There are so many good restaurants in Charleston, that it would be hard to visit them all. Poogan's offers classic Charleston eating in an old house in the heart of town. We made reservations for a Saturday night and were quickly seated on time. Biscuits, clearly homemade and delicious, were brought out first. We ordered pimento cheese fritters for an... More

Poogans porch has a lovely, charming atmosphere, in a historic house in the French quarter of charleston. All the food is good, although not memorable. But the ambience and atmosphere are hard to capture. Worth a brunch or lunch to be delighted with this popular place.

We had dinner at Poogan's Porch after having lunch next door at Husk. Both places are wonderful. Food and especially service at the 'Porch were excellent. Our party of three ordered food and a bottle of wine and it took a while to get the wine; then suddenly the sommelier came to our table with three glasses of cava and... More

The food we had was good, but my favorite thing about the place is how it got its name. The service was a little slow, but it is like a mom and pop restaurant. We enjoyed our meal a lot

When you are in Charleston do as the natives do and go to brunch at Poogan's. Make a reservation! Or wait, its worth it. (I just get a table in the bar area if its too busy). They have a great brunch. I love the biscuits they are excellent, the best I have ever eaten. The Bloody Mary's will not... More

We had reservations and were seated on time, but my wife's fish was not cooked long enough and mine dinner was just OK. Nothing was bad, but we expected more from the reputation we had read about.
