“Grits and Shrimp”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2014

It was fabulous Grits and Shrimp are a must try for everyone. We also had the BBQ ribs that were also to die for (mustard dry rub). Service was spot on and location to me was amazing.

“Consistent, established, delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2014 via mobile

We have traveled to Charleston every year for nine years. We have eaten at Poogan's three times on various trips and EVERY time this place has been spot on. Their food is delicious. It's classic southern fare with wonderful seafood choices as well. The scallops are absolutely wonderful! Also, the stuffed fried chicken and fried pork chop...absolutely cooked to perfection. We have FOUR small kids ages 9yrs to almost 2yrs. They never once made us feel awkward for bringing our kids there. They have a kids menu. And my kids went nuts over the Gouda macncheese. My 9 yr old got the crab & shrimp pasta off of the menu & sopped every. Last. Bite with one of their delicious biscuits they bring to your table. Trust me, I am a food snob at its finest. Poogans has been around awhile and it's evident they know how to cook a great meal along with making you feel welcome & glad you are eating at their establishment. This place is no second best, as one review states...it's really spot on with quality food, great selection/variety, & overall wonderful atmosphere. When you go, stop by the front and read the story behind this place, it's a good one!

“Enjoyable Wedding Rehearsal Dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2014

My daughter & now husband chose Poogan's Porch for their wedding rehearsal dinner. The food was outstanding, notably the she-crab soup and sweet tea salmon. Service exceptional. We gathered and sat in the upstairs private room. Highly recommend Poogan's Porch!

“Quaint restaurant, Good authenic cuisine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2014

I have been to this restaurant on several occasions for lunch on weekdays. The location is in an upscale area of downtown, nice to walk around to sight-see some of the beautiful historic homes and churches nearby. There is an interesting cute story behind the name of the restaurant , named after a beloved pet. Reservations are suggested.

The food and service is consistently good, portions enough to share, reasonably priced for lunch. I would suggest the she-crab soup for starters. The homemade biscuits are wonderful, hard not to fill up on them. I really like the fried shrimp and shrimp and grits for main courses. Try bread pudding for dessert. Yum!
