Great Lunch Spot

We were there on a Saturday and arrived just before noon and were able to grab a table on the porch. When we left there was a line for both inside and outside dining. I think that speaks to how both locals and tourist feel about this place. There were three of us and we had burgers and fish... read more

Locals spot. Outdoor and indoor seating. Well worth a wait in line. Great selection of beers on tap.

Had lunch on a busy Saturday. Be prepared to wait in the outside or inside line. Very noisy inside so I prefer outside seating. Others had the fish sand which which was good also.

We have been wanting to try this place for months. We went at 4:30 on a Saturday and only had to wait about 5 minutes to be seated. We ordered then waited over 30 min for our food. My husband ordered his burger Medium and it came out well done. We didn't say anything because of how slow the service... More

Poe's Tavern is not hard to find. However, there is not many places to park. So be prepared to parallel park if it's during busy hours such as dinner time. The restaurant isn't very big but we found a table just fine. Self seating. Fast and friendly service. We had the chili (has beans) and cheese fries which were amazing.... More

All of their food is great, but there is something about their chili that keeps bringing you back. The place is always crazy busy so we always preferred sitting outside.

While doing a whirlwind 2 day tour of Charleston, we had the great pleasure of dining at Poe's Tavern. Being used to more formal dining experiences, I was a little concerned. Yet, the Character of the Tavern is really neat, artistically speaking, which I got to experience by eating at a tiny slanted wooden table (seating 4) outside under an... More

Such a cool place and the food is really good! Awesome fries and big burgers. We were with a bachelorette party and all shared burgers and were full when we left! The entire place is decorated with Edgar Allan Poe memorabilia so if you watch The Following, you think Joe Carroll is running the place! Even has a recording in... More

Went here thinking tourist trap but was very surprised, good food and lots of cold beer. Love the decor and the Edgar Allen Poe theme. Never realized he had been to Sullivan's Island and wrote about it. Can't wait to go back
