Great entertainment

Poe's Pub is a great neighborhood place to go, it's within walking distance of a lot of different neighborhoods. The atmosphere is a little plain, but it is a neighborhood place.

Popped in just to get a drink and kill some time. The service was wonderful; the bartender was awesome but I am so thankful I didn't order a beer! The taps looked like they had never been cleaned. Everything else about our stop was wonderful but I just can't give a good review after seeing how gross the taps were.

While viewing World Championship bike races spent 3 evenings at Poe's, which was located at the bottom of a featured climb in the race. Even though there were many folks from other countries, the owner and staff treated everyone with the same neighborhood feel that the locals get. The kitchen was on a limited menu. However, the basic food was... More

We live a mile from Poe's, so we go there quite often. Poe's feels like a neighborhood bar at the far east end of Shockoe Bottom, at the foot of Libby Hill. While the alcohol can flow there, especially on weekend nights or when bands are playing, the kitchen offers a good selection of food. If they satisfy my taste,... More

Great french toast and huge breakfast burgers, served with a smile. After shabby treatment at the proper pie, we were happy to be appreciated here.

Poe's was a perfect pit stop on the ride up from Williamsburg on Route 5. Friendly staff, nice beer selection. got there on a Thursday which is rib day. Tasty and very tender, had to knife and fork then cause they fell off the bone. This place will defiantly be on my ride destination.

Have to admit, only went here because of the name. We were on a Poe adventure while in Richmond, and this place is called Poe's Pub. It is your typical pub food. Had the ribs, based on other reviews, but I can't say that it was the best ribs I've ever eaten. The waitress was very friendly. Even thought it... More

And buys it. That's Poe's.....a great place for excellent bar food and some very good foodie stuff. Service is first rate and even though it's a very open area, it feels comfy and cozy. Have only eaten there once, but as soon as I can I'll be back. A little out of the way for me.

Thank Harry S
