On a holiday weekend walking in without a reservation my only option for dining was the bar area. That's not a problem for me as I often choose to sit at the bar when traveling solo. The large communal dining table in the bar region makes for easy opportunities for conversations with others who are sitting there. The bartender was... More

Spent an evening here for dinner last week and enjoyed our time on the porch. I had the scallops, which were good, and hubby had the pork chops. Both dinners were excellent and the biscuits were awesome. I wasn't so fond of the key lime dessert though. It looked pretty, but didn't taste anything like key lime pie.

Stopped in for lunch today, without a reservation. Seated quickly and promptly forgotten. Someone dropped off water with a "sorry" and then nothing. Really, if you're too busy, don't seat walk-ins.

Great food and great service. The menu was not extensive but the food was phenomenal. Fried Pork Chop and Short ribs rocked.

Yes, the restaurant seemed very cool and interesting on the show Southern Charm, but I had no idea the food, atmosphere and staff was going to be so amazing. The she crab soup was awesome, and my short rib ragout entree was fantastic. Highly recommend because it's a complete treat. A must for anyone visiting Historic Charleston!

We were trying to decide which Charleston restaurant to go to and decided on Poogan's Porch based on a recommendation from a friend! And she nailed it! Our server, Sally, was incredible! We relied on her for recommendations for our meal and got almost everything she told us to! The Pimento Fritters were OMG to die for! My first time... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by a good friend so we tried it. The service was quick and polite. The drinks were, by my standards, somewhat small..at least my martini was quite cute. My wife ordered Fried Chicken and I ordered what the menu stated as "Crispy Red Snapper". My wife's chicken was fine. My "Crispy" Red Snapper was... More

Poogan's Porch consistently serves outstanding food and delicious cocktails. The service is excellent and wait staff is so friendly. It's especially fun to learn the ghost stories. Poogan is the little white dog who supposedly still haunts the restaurant along with the building's previous owner who is occasionally seen in the mirror of the women's bathroom.

This is a nice place with a good atmosphere. We arrived on a Sunday, at lunch and without a reservation. I really craved the shrimp grits, so we took two seats at the bar and ate. While the food was delicious, watching the bartender wipe up spills and pour drinks, with our backs to the room detracted from the experience,... More
