“Cooked to perfection gourmet burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Fun place. Unique Poe inspired artwork all over the restaurant. Lots of TVs and nice bar that is indoor/outdoor. Perfect size restaurant, not too small and not too large. It didn't have the stale beer smell as some pubs have. Service, food, wine and beer list above average. Our server was fun and engaging, explained a bit about the restaurant and helped us decide exactly how we wanted our burgers prepared...and they were just that- exactly what we wanted. You won't be disappointed.

“Great food and setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

We went to Poes for dinner. It's a very popular spot as we had to wait for about 30 min for a table and this was at 8pm! The menu is mostly sandwiches and salads but everyone's meal was very well prepared and tasty! The wait wasn't too boring as the restaurant is about two blocks from the beach so we walked around until our table was ready. The waiter was very knowledgeable and service was great.
Just be prepared to wait for your table but in our view it was worth it. Since its close to the beach parking is tight so be prepared to walk to the restaurant

“A great place for an amazing burger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Our waitress was Melissa, the girl with the garter tattoo and she was perfect. She was funny, attentive and had a wonderful story (which she will tell you) about how they do the hamburgers.

My husband and I didn't order the hamburgers for dinner that night instead we had the Fish Tacos and Sesame Seared Tuna over mixed greens, which were good but after her little story, we found ourselves back the next day for lunch at Poe's.

This hostess was fast and we did get to sit outside this time but oh the burgers. They are amazing, the meat just melts in your mouth and the soft cheeses complement the meat perfectly. This is a place to eat a true medium rare burger. It was wonderful and it was all because of the waitress with the garter tattoo.

“Burgers, great beer selection”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

The beer selection is great, the menu is small, mainly just burgers, chicken sandwiches. The veggie burger is tasty but they are kinda pricey. I did not care for the sides.

“New Kid on the Block Delivers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Poe's Tavern moved into an old bar-b-q restaurant out on Atlantic Beach and more than a few folks wondered what a joint named after a depressed 19th-century poet was doing among all of the nearby beach and seafood dives. Well, I'm sure those folks, like me, are wondering no more. Poe's Tavern gives all those in Jacksonville one more reason to 'cross the ditch' on any given weekend. When the weather is nice (like it is now) and they open up the place to the outdoors, the energy and aroma fill the beach and one cannot help but be drawn in. For delicious (and creative) burgers to tasty fish tacos, Poe's Tavern raises the bar for typical beach food. Oh, and did I mention the energy? So bring your appetite and a beach attitude and join in the fun. Everyone's a friend here.
