A big communal table in the center.We did find two seats and ordered a drink. My husband ordered the filet which was very good but not worth the high price they charged.I... More

We had dined here in the past on various occasions and we were looking forward to our return visit. We were disappointed! Even though we had a reservation, we were made to wait to be seated. The room we were then taken to was empty with only 2 diners there. Made no sense! I used to like their "Shrimp and... More

We were accommodated without a reservation on a Friday at lunchtime. Service was great and friendly , food was very good but not great. The atmosphere is nice and we were not rushed through the meal as can happen at other establishments. A nice welcome on our first visit to this city.

Poogan's Porch is authentic southern cooking, a little pricey but well worth the cost. The staff is very friendly and they treat you like family. A must when visiting Charleston. Come hungry and you will leave stuffed!

I usually go to Poogans for brunch or lunch and LOVE IT. A friend and her girls were in town and asked to go for dinner. I had their shrimp and grits, which isn't the best in town and a salad. My daughter had the shrimp and grits as well. We both had water to drink. A whopping $90! I'll... More

Our last visit to Charleston we had a delicious lunch at Poogan's Porch so naturally we had to come back this time around. The SheCrab soup is to die for! A must have! I had the shrimp and grits...how can you go wrong. The biscuits they should sell by the dozen. Never a disappointment here!

The restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel as a good place for lunch. Inside it was dark and a little seedy looking. The service was a little jaded, although our waiter was obliging when we didn't like the glass of wine we ordered and promptly provided a glass more to our liking. The food was uninteresting and bland.... More

I was excited to come to Poogan's porch since my mother told me about our family enjoying the restaurant there when I was a baby, nearly 30 years ago! I was not disappointed. It was obvious that the menu was prepared with high quality foods. I had a really fresh tomato, grilled peach and mustard green salad. The pimento cheese... More

We've been to Poogan's many times and it never disappoints. The fried chicken is amazing and we have to get it at least once every trip. It's always fried to perfection, juicy and tender. The biscuits are fantastic- always light and fluffy. It's unforgettable!
