Enjoyed our Lunch!

We ate here when visiting 5 years ago so it was on our list. I love the old house. The mac and cheese appetizer is the best I have ever had. The fried chicken was dry this time which was disappointing. I would however go back if we visit Charleston again. I wish I had tried fried green tomatoes... read more

We visit Charleston yearly, and usually try to dine at a new restaurant for dinner each night. However, since discovering Poogan's Porch, we always make sure to eat there at least once during our visit. This charming old house has been turned into a wonderful restaurant. The staff is friendly and efficient, the value is good, and the food is... More

Great food and service. Nice setting especially the veranda seating. I had the southern fried chicken with blue chees risotto, very nice. Large portions so may not have room for a pudding.

We've enjoyed going to Poogan's Porch for lunch or dinner over the years that we've been visiting Charleston. This time, we took a couple who'd never been there before, and we enjoyed lunch. Sebastian was our server, and by the time he'd pointed out some of the special items on the menu that day, he'd changed all of our minds... More

Don't overlook convenience to parking. This is directly across from Queen St's Parking Garage and near all the antique and boutique stores. Looks small from the front but goes back and up for lots of seating. Twenty minute wait went fast in the bar. Wife had shrimp scampi and loved it. I had alligator bits app--perfect! Then chicken on mashed... More

My husband and I both had the fried chicken entree and it was spectacular! The chicken was so tender and the sage gravy was an added treat. The restaurant itself was very quaint and a nice romantic walk from our hotel. The service wasn't tremendous, but it was adequate. Have already recommended to other friends.

A great place for a lovely lunch on a gray, rainy day. Our waiter was enthusiastic and very helpful.

My friend and I were enjoying a girls' weekend and decided to try this place as we had heard of it. We chose lunch and enjoyed some traditional brunch items--wonderful French toast and eggs/bacon/home fries. The food was great except for the lukewarm temp. When my friend expressed her displeasure about lukewarm eggs, our server (middle-aged female) seemed flustered and... More

This is my go to restaurant when I want pretty surroundings in addition to a delicious lunch. It's a great place to take friends. I tried the alligator bites last time, and they are amazing!
