We go to Charleston several times a year and nearly always go to Poogan's Porch as it's one of our most favorite restaurants ANYWHERE - not just Charleston. We enjoy sitting outside then you get to watch the tours which always stop to look at Poogan's grave and hear the story.

Went on a weeknight after traveling all day. Didn't have to wait long. Sat out in courtyard. Server was knowledgeable and service was efficient. Food was excellent. Bar gets crowded easily.

We had such a great evening. We made reservation for a table on the porch. The temperature was mild and sitting outside was very romantic. Nice table setting, which we enjoyed.

Best Biscuit ever! It came with salted butter. We asked for a jam, and it was brought right away. We liked it so much, the waiter came up with the receipe right away.

Best She crab soup on our trip through the South.

I wanted to try something truly Southern, so I had the Shrimp and grits. Truly tasty and the different aromas blended well. My partner had the salmon, which she liked as well.

The Banana pudding was very very good.

Best wine on our trip through the south.

Very good service, the waiter was sophisticated and knew his plates very well. Something you don`t usually find in a restaurant.

To sum it up, very good cooking at Poogans Porch! Not cheap, but worth every penny.

What a great evening this was. Charleston we love you and will return soon.

We ate here as it was two doors down from our hotel, the Elliott House Inn. I had the Grilled Mahi with Butter bean, black-eye pea & bacon lardon succotash, bourbon gastrique which another reviewer has posted and shows a picture of the entrée. It was very delicious. We did wait almost a half hour for our table although we had an 8:15pm reservation on a Monday night. We thoroughly enjoyed this casual atmosphere in an old haunted house in a great location.

Food was good. Service was a bit slow for our party of 8 at 8 p.m. Very dim lighting but we had a good time nonetheless.
