Romantic!

Had the cheese balls and alligator salad to start and shrimp and grits & ravioli for entrees. I have nothing good or bad to say about the food since it was average. Service... read more

Nice, but not outstanding. We liked the 'old' house atmosphere, the the old seats/chairs were terribly uncomfortable. The food wasn't too bad as I remember, although delightful.

This was my second time eating at Poogan's Porch and it was just as good, if not better, the second time around. For starters, I had the fried green tomatoes with pecan encrusted goat cheese and a blueberry and peach chutney. They were sensational! Then, I had the mustard bbq ribs and the smoked Gouda mac and cheese...superb! The ribs... More

Absolutely amazing. Don't miss the crispy skin red snapper on pulled pork and grits cake. A James Beard award-winning recipe, it is now certainly in the top five of restaurant meals I have ever enjoyed. The staff was very helpful, too, in explaining the menu, as well as local distillery based cocktails. My wife had sweet tea glazed salmon and... More

If you have one night to spend in Charleston, make sure you go here! (Don't forget to make reservations). The setting is so welcoming - you feel like you are a guest in someone's home. The She Crab soup and Alligator salad were simply delicious! Our kids said that the Mac & Cheese was one of the best they have... More

This place is amazing. They have some of the best food you can find in Charleston and everyone should visit here at least once and you will be hooked. Their mac and cheese is some of the best we have ever had, as well as their shrimp and grits, and fried chicken. Just a classy southern restaurant with great appeal... More

We really enjoy Poogan's Porch. Love the history of the building and the little dog. We bought a Poogan's Dog. Great She Crab soup. Shrimp and Grits are yummy. Always love coming here. It is consistently good.

My husband and I came here for dinner. The space was nice although the dining room upstairs was dark. We ordered fried green tomatoes as an appetizer, which unfortunately came out at the same time as our entrees. My husband ordered ribs and Mac and cheese and he absolutely loved it. Although he prefers BBQ ribs, he found the mustard... More

We went for our anniversary dinner and they delivered champagne as soon as we sat down. Our waitress was great and the story behind the name of the restaurant is fun and interesting. The appetizer was so good and dinner was delicious! Would definitely add this to your Charleston dinner plans!
