Hamburgers cooked to order, beef ground in house

Poe's has excellent hamburgers and can be cooked other than well done because they grind their own beef. Coleslaw was unique, I loved it. You gotta try it if you go 8-)

The food was great! The burgers are better than the fish tacos in my opinion. The atmosphere was not what I expected. It was really lively and had a hipster feel. Felt more like a trendy bar rather than a pub. I expected it to be more mellow since Poe's work was more on the serious side. Fun place to... More

Revisited Poe's on a quick weekend in Charleston SC. The burgers are great and the servers are quick. Many different beers are available and the fries are tasty. Parking on Sullivan's Island is a nightmare and they have taken away the on street parking that used to be right in front of the restaurant. Busy place so plan your trip... More

Poe's Tavern has the coolest atmosphere by the beach! I love to come here with friends and family! They the best fish tacos in town!!! If you're out on Sullivan's Island or in the Mt. P area, then don't miss out on Poe's Tavern! Also - this is the perfect place to take a history or English buff!!!

This was my second visit and both times was really good. So far we have had excellent service, food comes out in a decent amount of time and the food is yummy. It's a great place to sit outside but if it's too cold their front deck area is well equipped with heaters. Check out the menu - plenty of... More

This is an awesome burger joint! The atmosphere is relaxed, the service was great, and the food was even better. I had the Black Cat burger and it was excellent! This was a great local place to stop!

When you want a great cozy place for a unique burger, this is your place. Fun weird combos for burgers or chicken sandwiches, wonderfully long list of draft beers to choose. And there's is always a daily special. Fireplace makes it really nice to just sit, have a drink and "be." We love it and recommend their burgers and chicken... More

Want to envision yourself living in an Island town? Go to Poe's grab a beer and sit and people watch. Ok so most of the people around you are tourists but it is still a great vibe. Lo key nothing fancy but situated right in the middle of the action on Sullivans Island. Grab a burger and get the onion... More

All of the restaurants along the ocean boulevard were packed on Saturday evening. While standing and waiting to be seated you had a closeup view of the kitchen staff preparing the food, then each dish was placed on the counter in clear view several feet away. Brilliant marketing. You almost didn't need a menu - "I want that". A burger... More

Came here after reading on my "best burgers in every state" this was the place. I was expecting a signature burger, nope. But a long list of burgers (chicken or beef) with names from works of poe. Example, I had the Annabelle Lee, had a crab cake on a burger.. another I wanted to try had bbq shrimp on top.... More
