Great atmosphere. .

My husband and I decided to stop here after the rave reviews on trip advisor and weren't steered wrong. The place is small but accommodating. We chose to sit at the bar near the fire place. The food was excellent, My husband raved about the blue cheese coleslaw, and is dying for it again already... read more

Edgar Alan Poe is everywhere here, even on the wallpaper I the ladies! But the food is not goth, delicious mahi mahi tacos for me in a fun, nice relaxed atmosphere

We took our family of four to dinner at Poe's. The burgers were incredible and the fish tacos were fabulous! Great atmosphere in the restaurant and the food came out quickly! I highly recommend Poe's for great food and service!

Place speaks for itself. Easily the coolest bar on the islands and the food is awesome. Very fun vibe whether it is winter or summer. Be prepared to wait if you go during peak dinner hours.

Burgers are great, but love the fish tacos! Great outdoor seating area, but cozy and interesting inside too. One of my favorite local spots!

This place was yummy! Burgers were cooked just right and very tasty! Lots of food and priced just right! There were five of us; everyone ordered something different and everyone was pleased! I had the burger with fried egg and cheese and it was so good! We will definitely go back to this place when we're in the mood for... More

It;s one of the only places to eat in busy beach area, so why try hard. Tourists will come regardless. Many mexican themed dishes, but no real taco chips, just storebought, and for their tacos again storemade WHEAT tacos not more flavourful corn ones. Condiments including quacamole storemade. Didn't try fries but they look like the best bet on the... More

If you want funky (albeit slightly creepy) decor in a fun pub with amazing (varied) burgers... this is your spot. Lots of options and fun servers... laid back atmosphere with efficient expert service; our group of 7 was well cared for. Fancy? No, go downtown for your high-brow snooty fare... this place is for fun and friends...can't wait for deck... More

Poe's is a Charleston gem. If you're from out of town put this on your list. The scenic drive to Sullivan's island only makes the experience better. Things can be slow during the heart of tourist season but the quality of food never waivers. I recommend mahi tacos, but the burgers are great too!
