Great Burgers!

I have passed by Poe's for a very long time and finally stopped in for lunch last week. The burgers are awesome and the atmosphere is great. The bar is good with a wide variety of draft beers. Service was friendly with the exception of the gentleman at the door who I found to be abrasive and... read more

Friday night family wedding brought 10 of us together for a Saturday night meal after touring Charleston all day. They offered us a back table but we did not feel comfortable in the narrow proximity, so we moved. They found a table, served up fantastic food, and even made those who were choosy about their drinks very happy. All in... More

I recently on a random trip to Charleston asked several people what is a good restaurant to check out and ALOT of them told me to check out Poe's. After arriving I couldn't figure out what the place was so familiar and then I remembered they also have a second location in Jacksonville Beach, FL. After grabbing a seat at... More

Poe's is a typical beach bar/restaurant. Food is good, service very good, decor interesting, price reasonable. They have both outside and inside seating, and parking.

such a fun place, devoted to Edger Allan Poe. Everything I have ever eaten I have loved but by far the burger is the best, ground fresh daily and char grilled to perfection these huge burgers are more than satisfying. And the sides are great too

We went to Poe's for lunch while on vacation and we were not disappointed, in fact we were surprised to find out that they have a kids menu! Our boys can be quite picky eaters and we went to Poe's based on a friends recommendation, hoping the boys would find something to eat. We were not given kids menus when... More

I finally got to dine at Poe's Tavern. The restaurant is small with inside and outdoor seating. The service was great and the burgers are amazing! We went for lunch and had to wait about 15 minutes before getting a table. I would recommend an early lunch or late lunch. I love the casual atmosphere. I will definitely return on... More

No visit to Charleston is complete for us without a meal at Poe's Tavern. Great burgers and chicken sandwiches prepared a variety of ways, a lively crowd, great service, wish I were there now.

Stopped on Sunday afternoon for a light lunch/dinner between visiting the Hunley and a sunset cruise in Charleston Harbor. The place was packed, but we were able to get a table in back for the 8 of us. We ordered hors d'oevres for the table, and our waiter helped us with beer and wine choices. People raved for the shrimp... More

It's usually very crowded during the tourist season but I was lucky and went early to get an outside table. They have parking next to the restaurant but it's usually full which but again, I was lucky this time. The service was excellent bringing me a diet soda right away. I ordered the fish tacos - you can order two... More
