I've been here 3 times now and the food is average- like what you'd get at Applebee's. The service is slow and it's hard to get the waitstaff's attention. Also, one time there was a terrible smell that they were trying to cover up with bleach.

I returned to Charleston last week on a beautiful warm spring day, and once again had lunch at Poogans with my son and his fiancé. It was a civilized experience with excellent service and melt in your mouth food. The fried chicken was superb as was the pork chop. And always those wonderful biscuits!

Great place offering Southern food staples in a lovely setting. If the weather is nice, definitely sit outside. Those tables are pet friendly too!

I must have been at a totally different restaurant from the rest of the reviewers, because my experience was not a particularly positive one. We got there early, hoping to settle in the bar for a relaxing few drinks before our meal. “Well, it’s okay if you can find any room at the bar,” the hostess said. “It’s crowded.” That... More

I have never had a bad meal here. It is not only popular with tourists, but locals as well. Friendly service, and consistently good food. The sweet story about the name of the restaurant is quite heart warming & fascinating.

Very nice staff, accommodated a lunch group of 10 w/previous reservation. Nice variety on the menu & plates brought out timely. Shrimp & grits were good, could have been warmer. Others enjoyed chicken sliders, chicken and dumplings were different w/ gnocchi but overall a nice lunch.

I am really sorry to have to write this review but I was so disappointed with Poogan's porch. I was looking forward to the visit based on the positive reviews on this website. Sometimes I wonder where everyone else is from and how often they eat out. This restaurant was average, at best. I had the Plantation fried chicken stuffed... More

This was definitely the best experience we had on our family vacation. The food was absolutely incredible and our server, Jimmy, was phenomenal! He's also a great photographer so get him to take a picture while you are there! Don't miss out on this experience in Charleston!

A great place to enjoy southern cuisine, southern hospitality and southern charm in an old historic building. Variety of delicious food to chose from their menu.
