Delicious classic southern food in Historic Charleston. Best Southern Fried Chicken! Dress up or more casual. A very welcoming environment

I love haunted places so my friend made reservations for us to have brunch here during my visit. Unfortunately, no Zoe or Poogan sighting, but did have a delicious meal! Must have pimento cheese fritters.

My husband and I went to Poogan’s Porch for our anniversary during our first ever trip to Charleston. The food was overpriced for what we got. My calabash shrimp was just what you would get at Applebee’s. I got potato chips as a side dish...instead of rice because I misunderstood the waitress who was wearing a face mask. (OK, my mistake.). The cole slaw smelled like that preservative that often accompanies bagged cabbage & other produce, rendering it inedible, at least for me. So basically, I got fried run of the mill shrimp & chips for a ridiculous amount of money. I tasted my husband’s salmon & it was OK, nothing to rave about. So, I’d pass this up if I were you.More

We had high expectations based on what we read and heard about Poogan’s Porch. While our server was friendly, the food was disappointing. The salmon was blah, the vegetables were room temp and the she crab soup was way over salted.

The food was really good but the service was absolutely exceptional. Gabriel M was our server and he was so pleasant as well as organized. Highly recommend!!

Come hungry because the food is amazing!!! The bar staff was awesome. We never ran into Zoe the Ghost, but heard all about her.

My wife and I ate here twice on our trip. The Berbecuban as well as the Chicken and Waffles were terrific!

Visited this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. Made reservation online as they are very busy. Service was great. It is in a old house that has been renovated and has reputation of being haunted by the dog Poogan that lived there.

Some helpful tips. Ask to be seated in the back patio if you have dogs. The carriage route goes by the front and our pups let everyone know the horses were coming. Stopped in for lunch today and was really disappointed in the food. Fried...chicken and waffles were almost inedible. Not your best effort in the kitchen. You might want to remove it as one of your specialty items.More

Picked this restaurant based on reviews and its Low Country Menu. I had the fried chicken and it was disappointing. Tasted overcooked and somewhat leftover. The biscuits and scallops were good.

We parked at the town information center's huge garage and took the "FREE" bus service all around town . You are able to hop on and off, and the bus routes cover the entire town.
