The wait at Toast was way too long. This was a nice alternative. Saturday morning crowd was fine and we had a delightful meal. Open face omelet with fried oysters and she crab eggs Benedict. This place is a celebration of Charleston's culinary and historical heritage. Hoped to see Zoe, the resident haunt, in the bathroom or on the stairs... More

Mac N Cheese was awesome. We suggested they just make an entree of the M&C, biscuits, grits, and applewood bacon :) Great food, great service, great ambiance and good price.

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.
