We had tried the main location in downtown Charleston and decided on this one for a Sunday lunch. They really have a nice variety on the menu and excite the entrees well. There was a wait so we just popped over to the bar to...skip the line. The service was very friendly and eager to help us with questions. My wife went for the breakfast platter with eggs, hash browns, bacon, and a biscuit n gravy. I was feeling a chef salad with fried chicken (it’s their specialty) and their collard greens are legendary. Our bartender mixed up a few coffee cocktails and they were solid. It’s a nice casual atmosphere and the place was buzzing. We enjoyed our stop here and will return.More

Atmosphere was like a chain-restaurant in a cheap food mall. Decor was crappy, tilles foors, fake plants, ultra-high (25'????) ceilings, bad wait service. Weak drinks (although Jordan made them right). Cafeteria type formica and metal chairs. LOUD!!!! Go to downtown, instead. It was a WASTE...of our money....More

Wonderful Belgium waffles. Service was accommodating and fabulous. Food was hot and flavorful. They are very good about food allergies.

Arrived at 8:10 and received our food at 9:20. Others received their food 20 after they arrived. Hashbrowns we're frozen, fried, then came clumped together. Corned beef and hash assumed to be out of a can. Just expected more from a place like this and...what you pay. French toast was good. Biscuit and gravy was ok. Chicken and waffles was overcooked and tough.More

I went with a party of four, and we all loved the food and service. The salmon with broccoli was simply outstanding. A+ Others ordered the chicken fried steak, shrimp and grits, and meat loaf.

I never complain or write reviews but I had to this time.Nothing was pleasant about this visit.I have been dying to go but this was an epic fail.They no longer served the signature cocktails listed on the menu. The sweet tea tasted like water. The...bread was so salty no one at the table ate it. My son said his chicken tasted like plastic. I was served the wrong entree.The macaroni was inedible. No one ate more than a bite of their dinner. We ended up leaving.More

I booked this event expressly for the purpose of having a dinner with several friends without the hassle of ordering separately, food arriving at different times and the hassle of paying 12 separate bills at the end of the evening. So, I was willing to...pay for the service that accompanied a family style dinner. None of the 12 of us had ever has this experience at Poogan's or elsewhere. We were all very excited. We were booked from 6:00 PM-8PM. However it was 45 mins after the last guest arrived before we received bread (7:15). We were served salads on 4 in saucers, so half the party didn't bother to eat more than the two bites that fit on the plates. At 8:00PM were get three platters of meat, one bowl of mashed potatoes and one bowl of mashed potatoes for 12 people. So, I immediately told the server wer needed refills on two meats and she said she'd have to talk to her manager. By 8:30PM it is communicated to me that the server was unaware that our meal included refills on everything. (The booked expressly stated that guests were free to eat as much as they liked) At this point everyone is still hungry and we were ready to go home. I ordered two dessert choices. After the first one arrives- not family style, this time on individual plates- I ask when will the second dessert will arrive. The server again states, I'll ask my manager. DID ANTONE READ MY BOOKED RESERVATION. WHAT DID I PAY $40.00/person = $753.00 for???????? Everyone left frustrated and hungry two couples went to get something to eat after they left!!!!! I am so disappointed and embarrassed. While the server was professional, I never saw the manager ALL night long. No one came to apologize for how long everything took, that we were not served correctly or even to help our server. This was my first ever experience eating at Poogan's, as it was for two other members of the party and I can say with confidence that no one who dined with us will ever again try or recommend family style dining to anyone. It was a miserable and regrettable experience. I could have fed twice as many people at any other restaurant for the same price- the difference would have been that we ALL would have enjoyed ourselves AND had enough to eat. DO NOT book family style dining at this location.More

I was disappointed after all of the recommendations and lists on which it appeared. My steak was overcooked, the broccolini was bland, and the mashed potatoes had way too much sour cream. They were sour. The service and view were good. It was way overpriced...though, I won't go back.More

Very cold. Told they had to keep fans on high and AC low because of Covid?! No worker wore a mask. Soup as could as the room. Kept asking if we wanted more beers (still NO). Finally took order. Wife nicely asked if the soup...could be warmed up…..”Oh, is it cold?” Charged us for both bowls. Too many good restaurants in the area Don’t waste your time or moneyMore

My wife and I had an early lunch and it was increíble. I had the fried chicken and waffles and was blown away. I’m not usually a fried chicken fan, but the chicken was delicious. My wife had the dog bowl (hilariously named) and she...said it was excellent. Service was great too! Cool atmosphere and really nice visit.More

We seem to eat at Poogan’s Kitchen whenever we are too tired to eat, or in a crisis (apartment flooded). We also go other times as well - guests, special breakfast, etc. The staff is unfailingly polite and friendly, the food never fails. We crave...the shrimp & grits, the chicken fingers, the salmon. Breakfast is also very tasty. Highly recommended!More

We were visiting the area and our friends and they suggested Poogans. We ate at the Charleston location a few years ago and loved it. This was no exception. The food was delicious and very fresh. And those biscuits! Perfectly delicious!!! The best part of...the experience for us was when our server asked if he could pray for the 4 of us. I need to mention that we’re contemplating relocating to Summerville and had asked for a sign. We believe we got it that evening. A dining experience we will never forget and we can’t wait to be regulars when we relocate.More

We visited this restaurant on June 11th. The food was great, but our server was disinterested in customer service. I ordered an caramel espresso latte well before closing time. Of course the espresso machine was already broken down, so I was offered what I thought...was the same thing only with coffee instead of espresso. What a disappointment. No caramel, no whipped cream, Bailey’s on the side…. When I asked for whipped cream, I got a smear of whipped cream. I would have definitely ate here again, however after that disappointing drink I will not be back and will make sure when I am with friends to not suggest and will discourage our party from dining here.More
