We were recommended this restaurant on a ghost tour and love the restaurants history. The ambiance, service, food and overall experience were fantastic and will be going back for a second round during our stay. That should say a lot with all of the awesome places to eat in the city. definitely a favorite place and a staple in Charleston.

An interesting restaurant in a small Queen Street home. The food was great and service was prompt and professional. The menu had interesting options. We chose steak and fish options The star of the evening was the bread pudding dessert. Delicious. Great food and atmosphere.

I did not enjoy my meal. The crab cakes were salty as was the entire dish and the tea rather watery. The waiter did not charge me for the entrée as I did not finish it. I decided not to order anything else.

Great location. Our waitress was quite helpful in food selections and tourist info. The food was close to the best tasting I have ever eaten. Hand cut pork chops. The buttermilk biscuit was baked to perfection! Wine and food were a little pricy. A manhattan with Makers Mark was 10 USD. So I must downgrade them one star on value... More

A great spot for Sunday Brunch. It is located not far from King Street and The Market. I got the Cinnamon French Toast with Pecans and Strawberries. Very good. Their Mimosas are great too.

During my and my fiance's yearly visit to South Carolina to visit my parents, we always make a point to stop at Poogan's, where my parents frequent several times a month. In my experience, each time our food is 100% excellent, our service wonderful, and the atmosphere perfect. This evening, the sweet tea salmon, pan-seared scallops, fried alligator, and calabash...

Husk next door was too crowded, so we tried Poogan's. The menu looked decent. Was a bit put off by the extremely dated Victorian decor once inside, but soldiered on. Snapper with grit cake and BBQ was delicious, although snapper was a bit overcooked. Friend's ahi tuna was wonderful. You feel like you're at the loser party while the cool... More

Lovely atmosphere and the food was definitely worth the wait. I would have been happy if I had stopped at the mouthwatering biscuits. My shrimp and grits was delicious and spicy, my sister was very pleased with her pork chop, and my other sister thoroughly enjoyed scallops. We were fortunate that it was an unusually comfortable summer evening so we... More

It's a neat place, but the food wasn't as good as I would have liked. It's good, and maybe others will love it. We just didn't think it was as good as it could have been.
