Staying at the Isle of Palms about 5 miles from Sullivan's Island with rain all day long. Finally about 430 started checking my urban spoon app and Poe's tavern looked quite intriguing. If you like a dozen or so local Draft brews, burgers galore, and terrific wait staff, here you go. Want bone marrow, keep on trucking.

Everyone has to go to Poe's if you come to Charleston. This place is usually packed so plan on a wait or make a reservation if you can.

Great place for a cheeseburger and a beer. Wonderful place to eat, hang, and people watch. Be patient, this place is always crowded.

We're staying at Folly Beach, but made the short trip over to Sullivan's Island, just to eat at Poe's Tavern. A friend of my wife's recommended it as a 'must' while in the Low Country. When we went it was raining, and from previous reviews, it seemed that a lot of the seating was outside. Well...the outside seating was all... More

We got there about 20 minutes before the kitchen closed at 9:00PM, no reservations. It was packed, but we were seated right away at a nice outdoor table, which we (5) wanted. Our server told us not to hurry with our order, very helpful with the menu and great service and food. We didn't go inside, but it looked like... More

Good beer selection and choice of sandwiches on a hot day. Eat outside at one of the tables or inside near the bar. Staff was very accomodating.

We love Poe's! Love sitting on outside, people-watching, drinking cold beer, and having a great burger! Always a favorite when we come to Charleston and we are never disappointed!

Four of us went for a late lunch here and we had a terrific time just people watching. We all had Pit and Pendulum burgers - 3 with their hand cut fries and 1 with onion strings. The fries were outstanding but the onion strings were simply French's fried onions, so that was a big disappointment. It was extremely crowded,... More

A lively, relaxed dining with a beer outdoors was what I was looking for. Sadly I did not like the look of what I saw being delivered nor the choices on the Menu, so left without ordering - maybe it is a lot better than it looked. The cacophony of noise was also very hard to take or avoid. It... More

We stop here every trip to Isle of Palms and this trip twice. Edgar's Nachos are the best. We had the nachos, Gold Bug Burger, Pit and Pendulum Chicken Sandwich and 3 beers for $48 before tip. The service was great . It is fun to walk around and look at the Poe stories and pictures. Parking is a premium... More
