we got into poogan's on "roll back menu" it was a fantastic deal. prices are rolled back on a selected menu from 1978 menu. alcohol is not included in the roll back. our waitress (CARLY) was extremely pleasant and very knowledgeable of the menu/wine list/ beer menu. we started off with the spinach salad with candied pecans and caramelized onions...

I have eaten at this restaurant several times in the past prior to this visit. On this occasion we were there for dinner. It was noisy, messy and the food was far from tasty. The waiter was quite busy and had no time to check his tables. I do not plan to return for a repeat.

I made a dinner reservation at Poogan's Porch ahead of our arrival, and I am glad I did. It is obviously a popular spot, and that distinction is well deserved. It sits off the main road in an old house. We were greeted immediately, and seated almost immediately. Our server was quick to arrive at our table, and did a... More

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of dining at a local favorite, Poogan's Porch. As I was by myself, there was no wait to be seated. I was sitting right by the heating unit, which went off at the right time, and then back on at the right time. I was very comfortable in spite of the loud couple sitting behind... More

I have been eating at Poogans Porch for years and have always had great food and service! Anytime I have friends in town this is the go to restaurant to have them experience "lowcountry cuisine in a charming settings. Southern style food with a gourmet twist in a historic old Victorian home- Don't miss Poogans's Porch!

Loved the ambiance out on the front porch for dinner! The fried green tomatoes set the bar so high no other has even come close. MAKE A RESERVATION (even for weekdays)

Have mixed feelings based on our visit. Went to the restaurant the day before they were closing for a remodel and don't know if this played a part. Food was mostly very good. She crab soup was good but a bit overpowering in salt and spice, salad wedge was mostly made up of the sour yellow part of the lettuce.... More

This was our first time at Poogan's but it won't be our last. Our friends are from Charleston and eat here often. We were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation at a table upstairs by the window. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful, checking for special requests (as our party included a vegan and vegetarian). Everything was... More

Amazing menu and wine list. One of my favorite places in Charleston. Service is the best, with fast food service.

The waiter was very helpful, and readily shared his recommendations. The scallops are a definite, as well as the fried oysters. Service is quick, and the attention to detail is awesome. Prices are what you would expect in downtown Charleston. Most entrees are $18-$24.
