My sister and I ate at Poogan's Porch upon a recommendation from several Charleston residents. The food was great. I had the sea scallops with pimento cheese ravioli. And my sister had the salmon. The pecan pie with melting chocolate ice cream is to die for! Only reason I give it four stars is that our waitress was not very... More

The food is pretty good. We used to go there a good bit but management has changed not for the better And there is a horrible stale dishwater smell when you walk in and upstairs. After more than four visits with the same smell, we have decided to venture to some of the really great restaurants around.

We ate here on a Thursday afternoon and were seated right away. The lunch menu offers some very tempting sandwich and salad choices as well as traditional Lowcountry cuisine such as fried chicken or pork chops and shrimp and grits . There are also some creative "New Southern" dishes such as the deliciously sauced blackened catfish and collard greens dish... More

My wfe and I heard about Poogan's Porch from friends and so we decided to eat there during a recent trip to Charleston. It was everything we were told it would be, and then some. Ambiance, friendly and very professional staff, excellent food and a fine assortment of wines and local and domestic beers. A 5 star dining experience at... More

My husband and I eat here a few times a year. It's one of our favorites for sure. We've never tried a dish we didn't like. There She Crab soup is some of the best as well as their Alligator Bites. We've always received great service as well.

We had a lovely meal here. The restaurant itself is quaint and fairly basic. The food however was delicious, and is all typical southern. My husband had the shrimp & and grits, and I went for the fried chicken with the mashed potato. If your in town, make sure you go it's well worth it and makes a lovely place... More

Poogan's Porch is a classic Charleston restaurant. We were on a three day visit and were looking forward to a classic low country meal. I had the shrimp and grits which they claimed was voted the best in Charleston in 2015 - however, I found them to quite ordinary. The shrimps were fine but the grits were just OK but... More

We were a party of 7 who dined at Poogan’s Porch around noon on a Monday. It was our last day in Charleston and we wanted to make sure we tasted all the specialties the city, and Poogan’s, had to offer- so we ordered a bunch of dishes and all shared. We tried the shrimp and grits, macaroni and cheese,... More

Had dinner here when visiting for a friends wedding. Crab soup was amazing! Best fried chicken I have eaten and my partner had the pork chop which was equally great! Service was efficient and friendly. Sat on the outdoor porch to enjoy the atmosphere; also dog friendly which is a plus in my book. I don't think you can go... More

Stopped here for lunch after a long walking tour, got the pulled pork sandwich, very tasty pork with a great BBQ sauce. House chips were good also.
