Wonderful

Definitely needs to be on your list when in Charleston. Excellent food and service. Make a reservation because it's a popular spot. We didn't think about it and it was the start of the Spoleto Art Festival, but we lucked out and got a table on the back patio which was perfect.

As with any Charleston restaurant you should plan to make reservations ahead of time but with a call prior to driving over Poogan's Porch has always been more than accomadating. We've had romantic date nights here (Poogan's provides one of the more quiet and intimate atmospheres). We've taken out of town guests to Poogan's not only for the delectable southern... More

I chose this restaurant for its charm and was not disappointed. This was my daughter and my first dinner in Charleston and we were so happy we chose Poogan's Porch. The service is exceptional, the atmosphere is exactly what we hoped for and the food was delicious. I had the Sweat Tea Salmon, which was perfectly cooked. My daughter had... More

Poogan’s Porch was a highlight of our visit to Charleston. We had a delicious and delightful dinner. Wanting to try as many things as possible, my husband and I shared four appetizers instead of ordering two entrees. Among the appetizers were the fried green tomatoes and the fried alligator salad. That (plus wine) proved to be excellent choices. We both... More

We'd certainly return to this place. We were seated for lunch on the back patio and enjoyed excellent service and very good food. My wife had a snapper dish and I tried the chicken and dumplings.Bothe were quite good.

Poogan's Porch is a delightful place to enjoy casual dining, however dinner is probable just as satisfying based on the quality of service, food and Poogan's ambiance. Put this restaurant on your list.

Loved eating with my pup on the porch. The service was impeccable. The meal was great and filling. My dog especially enjoyed sharing the fried chicken. I had to take off the skin on the thigh. Overall, a restaurant worth returning too.

This place is so cute, it's old but that's what makes it charming! My mother, my son and I came here for dinner and the waitress was wonderful! The food from beginning to end was wonderful! And we had the best time! Everywhere I travel to, I search for the best scallops, this one is the winner so far followed... More

Poogan's Porch was such a delight. This post will be short because I'm still in awe of their menu. The food and cocktails were inspiring. They really did a nice job of having a contemporary twist on southern cuisine without compromising the tradition of southern cooking. For instance, my husband ordered the rack of ribs. Instead of regular BBQ sauce,... More
