We went on a Monday evening at 5:45 and got a big table right away. My advice would be get their early because after 6:30 it started getting really crowded. Other reviews mentioned chaotic seating and that is exactly how it is. We parked a block away and walked. No big deal. Burgers were Soooooo good!!!!!!! Better than any we've... More

Parking is horrible. We had to park several blocks away in the residential area north of the restaurant. The restaurant is a Pub/Bar is seating is first come first serve which can be chaotic. The burgers were good but not sure I would come back as it is too stressful trying to park and then get a table.

On the advice of friends who live in Charleston, we made the trek to Sullivan's Island to visit Poe's. All four of us had a different burger - and all of us were happy with our choices. The hamburger is very thick - roughly the size of a hockey puck. Perfectly charred on the outside, the inside was medium to... More

We have been to Poe's many times over the years and find it to be very reliable! Great burgers and fish tacos are regular favorites. Casual , and crowded in season, but very enjoyable!

Came w friends on Saturday at 5 pm to meet friends w kids for early dinner. No hostess, nobody greeted us, no one really cares we are there. Grabbed a table, server was nice, but took forever to get anything... Waited 10 min for wine, another 10-15 for a refill. Food took forever.... I mean, it's a burger... Lots of... More

Loved the medium-rare tuna salad . It was dressed with a mango citrus vinagerette. The service was good while we dined alfresco. The crowd starting arriving early @5:15 pm and parking is next to impossible by 6:00pm, but the atmosphere is lively and vibrant! I recommend going for a casual dinner on Sullivan's Island.

I work on Sullivan's Is and while Poe's is good, I would not put it in the "great" category. More hype than bite. And very crowded in tourist season.

Really neat place. We lucked out and got a table outside. It was a Monday night but still packed. It's seat yourself and they don't take reservations. Based on my experience however, I would have been willing to wait for a table if necessary. The service was wonderful, the beer selection was great, and the food was tasty. I had... More

If you are a Poe fanatic you will recognize the quote above as Poes' own. And so appropriate for this little burger heaven haven. YOU have to try a burger here, and they are many.Great service and lots of Poe stuff in the joint. Great view, food and drinks!! Whether a Poe UVA grad. FAN OR NOT...you'll love this institution....
