Poogan's is ok. Not bad and not great. If you are on Queen Street, I would recommend Husk and 82 Queen over Poogan's. I was concerned that the restaurant said that they were known for their Shrimp & Grits because I did not think it was anything great. The heat was a little over-powering and the sausage used in the... More

When comparing quality and casual atmosphere, Poogans is the best in Charleston. The food tastes like you are at a 5 star restaurant but the atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable. Great drink selection and menu options also. Plan on being here every time I visit.

I had high expectations for this place reading all the great reviews but it was very disappointing. I got the red snapper and my date had the duck. The red snapper tasted like an old tire that washed up on sea. Chewy and tasted pretty fishy. The duck was cooked ok but had no flavor. The portion sizes for the... More

We were told we had to get the Mac & Cheese...it was amazing and definitely worth trying. The fried chicken sandwich is lightly breaded on a sourdough roll and was perfect. Excellent service and atmosphere just topped off an awesome visit!

We had a very nice meal and actually dined on the porch at Poogan's Porch. Good southern meal with a twist. Excellent service. Good menu and great variety of wines. I recommend this for your Charleston visit.

Old historic house, food choices were great. Fried Chicken was the best. We all enjoyed every bite of our meal. Nick, our waiter and was very attentive and pleasant. He took great care of us. Was our best last nights meal in Charleston.

Had brunch with my wife and 2 little girls. Grits were perfect. Never had better grits in a restaurant. My 11 year old loved the biscuits and gravy. Uniquely fluffy waffles. I had the Charlestowne omelet which was an open omelet with fried oysters on it. It was good but I will likely try a different meal next time. My... More

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
