Best shrimp tacos I've ever had! Get a side of chipotle sour cream for added greatness! We sat on the patio for a great atmosphere with wonderful service!

This is a casual restaurant and bar with a great beach-casual feel. Have never been disappointed in the 4 times I've had their burgers. I look forward to my next visit.

We stopped in here for a late lunch/early dinner. Nice place with lots of indoor seating and a nice outdoor seating area. We sat outside because it was about 65, sunny and not windy. It was gorgeous. The menu was mostly burgers, wraps and sandwiches. But there also appetizers and salads and a few specialty items. Burgers are named after... More

My burger was delicious!! Made exactly how I like it. Had the potato salad as a side and it was awesome too. I sat at the bar and the bartender was so friendly. It was a great experience all the way around. Will be back!!!!!

Be prepared to wait in line because this place is very popular. We were on the island during the off season. We barely saw a soul all we and on a Saturday around noon, we decided to check out this place. Well, I guess we found out we're all the citizens are. While Poe's has several selections on the menu,... More

I've been to Poe's twice now and will be back. They have great burgers - and I haven't managed to get past them, even there are other menu choices. Service is fast and friendly, but by no means rushed. They have a well stocked bar and a good selection of beer and spirits. Poe's is a great place to relax... More

We have wanted to eat here for a while but could never get in so we decided to give it a shot during the off season; it was worth the wait! I had the burger and it was outstanding, grilled to perfection and full of flavor. The fries are freshly cut and really good. Our waitress was great so it... More

I have visited Poe's many times and it is always a pleasure. The service is great even though they are generally very busy. Everything is good, salads, burgers, etc., but the fish tacos (and the fries) are incredible. Always a can't miss for lunch and a beer.
