We arrived during a busy dinner time, but were encouraged to eat at the bar! We found two seats on the outside bar area. We both ate the Market fresh fish sandwich-blackened Mahi on this night! It was so delicious! Eventhough it was busy, the bar staff took great care of us! It is such a fun atmosphere and the... More

Great burgers. Friendly helpful staff. Did not have to wait for a table - admittedly at a quiet time. But we got a table outside and it was very nice. Really really good burgers and beer. Well worth a visit ( we found out about it from a waiter in a restaurant in Charleston who said they did the best... More

I didn't know burgers could taste this good! I ordered the no-bun option (trying to be healthy!) but on seeing my husband's fries ordered fries with cheese! The house red wine was very good and there was a good choice of beers. Mike was our server and was excellent. I hope we can go back and would highly recommend anyone... More

This place has great burgers and a wide selection of beers. It's not far from the beach or Shem Creek so it's a nice stop before or after fishing or kayaking. The service can get a bit dicey when it's fully crowded, but hey your on vacation, what's the rush? Worth a trip.

We met some friend here after a fun day in downtown. I was excited because everyone was raving about the burgers. We had 6 in our group so I promptly went to the front to get our name on the seating list. The waiters, who you could actually try and converse with, said : it is find your own spot... More

We were lured by the great reviews, but were underwhelmed by our experience at Poe's. We arrived around 6pm on Sunday; the inside was hectic and noisy, there was one group waiting ahead of us for a table inside (seating is a first come first served free for all) but we opted for a shaded table outside. It seems we... More

Had awesome nachos and tacos. Food came super fast. Plus the history about the author Poe makes it a unique place.

Take the advice a waiter on the run gave me as I approached my table -- "Dont mess around -- go for the Nachos and the burger!" Poe's hums 7 nights a week in Sullivan's Island and pumps many great burgers and Chicken sandwiches. The beer selection is solid and the Nachos were hearty. Local spot for those living and... More
