Quirky and Yummy

We drove out here for lunch at my son-in-laws insistence. He doesn't ask for much so off we went. A party of 6 waited and waited. This place doesn't have a wait list. You stand in a line and if a table comes up that fits your bill you get it. The wait was long for our large party. And... read more

We took a drive to Sullivan's Island and we found this place to stop and get lunch. I had a grilled chicken sadnwich, which was tasty, and they have the best french fries ever. Will definitely stop back in if I'm ever down that way again.

Located in a great quite area of Charleston. Mostly burgers on the menu, but very good quality of burgers. Great service, nice people, and outdoor seating was amazing. Highly recommend to anyone in the Sullivan Island area.

Got there early enough to avoid any major wait. Seated upstairs in a booth. Not overly roomy and certainly quite loud. We all ordered burgers and fries (what they're famous for!) Food took a little longer than we expected, but not bad. Waitress was very friendly and efficient. Burgers were tasty, though my wife ordered medium and her's was just... More

We had such fun and the breeze was great on the porch. Go inside to see the many pieces of art with his depiction. The t-shirts were cool, too.

Skip their famous burgers and get the fish tacos. They were yummy! Parking can be difficult but the tacos were worth the effort.

We frequently go to Poe's. It is wonderful. Food is the best and great atmosphere. We love it and so does everyone else. It is very busy always.

Hadn't been to Poe's in a few years, so we were happy to see that it's still good. Best burger joint on Sullivan's or IOP. We came at lunch time and were seated immediately. Food was hot and tasty and the beer was cold. We'll be back.

Great for fish tacos and burgers and great beers on tap. We come every time we are in town! Small place but worth the wait.
