Was recommended but didn't meet requirements

We were recommended to have shrimp here. We could not get service let alone shrimp. Do not go there. Go to toast instead

If you find Southern food a bit heavy (as we did...even though it's tasty) Poogan's is a delight. We just happened to arrive during their anniversary week, with half price entrees, but still wonderful at twice the price. Highly recommended -- we had salmon and pork chop.

We went there for Brunch before departing on our travels home. We had our friend from England with us and were in search of a wonderful Southern Brunch. Everyone was very happy with their meals. I had the best pork chop I ever had with eggs and home fries. The waitress was a real treat with her "cheers ya'll"...we got... More

My husband and I enjoyed our dinner at Poogan's Porch last night. The roll-back prices were a shock. I ordered the fried shrimp, and sautéed greens. My husband enjoyed the flank steak , brocollini, mashed potatoes, and...pecan pie. The service was amazing! We were initially seated at a table, under an ac/ heating unit, that produced a draft. Our waitress,... More

We lucked out and ate here while the restaurant was celebrating its 39th anniversary so it had rolled back its dinner prices to the '70s. Notwithstanding the price cut, dinner was excellent. The waiter was helpful and knowledgable. The fried oysters and shrimp with grits were our first introduction to low country cooking. The ribs 'n mac were good and... More

This was a very pleasurable dinner experience. Nice menu selections. Very good preparation. Friendly, attentive service. Overall, a great experience. Good for groups or couples. Fried chicken second only to Puckett's in Nashville.

We were there as they were celebrating their anniversary and the prices were set back to that time period. The food was amazing and the service outstanding. The salmon was done to perfection as was the combination shrimp/oyster plate. The portions were not downsized to match the price. We definitely will return when we are in Charleston again.

We live in Beaufort, SC, so one would think we'd get to Charleston more often. Regrettably that is not the case, BUT when we do find a day to spend in Charleston we never miss Poogan's. We have been for every meal of the day, and all have been wonderful, but we are partial to their weekend brunch. Oh my... More
