Great variety of superb burgers. Half pound where rare means rare! Dries are terrific. Cheese range from Blue to Monterrey Jack. Bacon in top can’t be beat!

We visit the Charleston area quite often, this week we had time to drive to Sullivan's Island and enjoy lunch here. Poe's was just as good as the reviews we read before dining here. Fun vibe, great location, fantastic food! And....GOOD BEER choices!

The concept is great and so is the food. The Poe themed restaurant is a great place to visit if you're a fan of literature, and the food is very delicious. I recommend this highly.

While Sullivan's Island near the beach is small there are options. Poe's Tavern happens to be a good option. Food and service exceeded our expectations.
