On my first trip to South Carolina, My mentor and his wife took me to Poe's for my first meal on Sullivan's Island. I have to say that Poe's set the bar high for every other restaurant during my stay in Charleston SC. The service...More

The concept is great and so is the food. The Poe themed restaurant is a great place to visit if you're a fan of literature, and the food is very delicious. I recommend this highly.

While Sullivan's Island near the beach is small there are options. Poe's Tavern happens to be a good option. Food and service exceeded our expectations.

This tavern is decked out in everything Edgar Allan Poe as the name suggests. Everything on the menu is named after a Poe story. I had the Annabel Lee with fries and my companion had the Hop Frog with coleslaw and chili. Everything was delicious!

We stopped by for a drink and loved the atmosphere. The service was solid, but the drinks were lacking-not mixed evenly.

After morning at the beach, my wife and I went to Poe's Tavern for lunch. First visit to this area, and we had been told the food was good. If non-fancy is a word, that is Poe's. Crowded little tavern with okay service, and amazing...More
