Very cool atmosphere and a great meal. We all had very different selections and everything was very good. Service and pace were great.

Very elegant place, but not too stuffy. Great food. Have never had anything that I didn't love. Even down to the fresh juices. Omelets are heavenly. Hubby loves the one with fried oysters. I like the one with ham. French toast is perfect, too. Always somewhere we come back to. Love it!

The food was tasty, fatty, low country fare. A bit heavy for my taste, honestly, but we were visiting Charleston for the first time, and I wanted the authentic experience - BTW this was our last night after a week of eating authentic LC food! I would recommend the fried chicken over the pan-fried pork chop. Heirloom Tomatoes salad and... More

Actually had some local teens in the park suggest this place. It was so worth the wait we had. The alligator appetizer and crab cake sandwich just melt in your mouth. The teens told us the ghost stories that went with place so that added to the fun.

Chicken and biscuits and sweet tea for a couple of Californians. Went for lunch on a weekday. We got there about 10 minutes before they opened (luckily they let us sit in the air conditioned vestibule) and glad we did because there was a line by opening time. Good food, pleasant service.

Went with a ladies group for lunch and it was perfect. I had the fried chicken which was complete perfection. I can't remember the las time I had fried chicken so it was a huge treat. I also shared the shrimp and grits and they were quite delicious.

Three of us had dinner at Poogan's and the food was nicely prepared and generous servings. However, the table in the upstairs dining room was very wobbly and this did deter from the nice meal.

We took my mother here for lunch when in Charleston for a long weekend with the family. The restaurant is located on Queen Street, within walking distance for just about anyone staying in Downtown / Historic district. Walking would be preferable, because parking in the area is limited and hard to find. While waiting for our table, we enjoyed some... More

The food, the service, the hospitality, the wait time, the value for our money, the portion size, the knowledge & attention level of the staff, and the menu selection/variety made this our favorite restaurant of our visit to Charleston. We never eat at a restaurant more than once in a trip and we don't eat at a chain or something... More

Four of us ate here as part of a reunion with an old shipmate from Vietnam---many, many years ago. My wife and I live in Hilton Head, SC so we are reasonably familiar with "southern" cooking, or at least South Carolina's version. Poogan's Porch did a good job of providing that cooking with an upscale trend. My wife liked her... More
