Not enough choices on the menu, particularly in the appetizer category, to suit us. Our server, apparently disappointed (disgusted?) with us that we didn't order a starter, could hardly be bothered with us after that. To be fair, she was slammed with 6 tables. She...More

So glad we chose this restaurant.......tasty cocktail (Kentucky ?) made with bourbon and raspberry syrup......delicious!!!!!! Had an Australian friend with me, so tried Southern traditional foods.........fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits. Some of the best I have ever eaten.

I went for the "Brunch" time and enjoyed the atmosphere and the food! Parking is a bear and Reservations are preferred, but it is worth both to eat some of their fried chicken! I ordered the She Crap Soup as appetizer. It was good, but...More

Historic building, which was more rustic than anything. And unfortunately I found the food to be average, despite being told the shrimp and grits won best of every year. Our waiter was very pleasant and accommodating, and I would rate the service very good. (Incidentally,...More

We have had brunch at this restaurant the last two trips to Charleston and the quality of the food has been excellent both times. I highly recommend a reservation unless you don't mind waiting.

I had the Shrimp n Grits, they're renowned for that. I just got lucky to find them. It was amazing and memorable. I started up the stairs to eat on the 2nd floor and felt the haunting ... nothing scary at all, but I felt...More

This place was so good we ate here twice during our 4 day stay! Both times for brunch. Delicious chicken and waffles, French toast, omelet with pimento cheese, quiche, etc. Bloody Mary and iced coffee were very good!!! Great service !

Poogan's Porch isn't always among the most talked about restaurants in Charleston, but it should be particularly for visitors who want to experience real shrimp & grits or fried green tomatoes or fried okra. I say this because there is a tendency in some of...More

We had a family reunion in Charleston last week and heard we needed to try Poogans Porch. They were able to seat all 14 of us in one table upstairs, which was great. We absolutely loved it, from my 2 yr old niece to my...More

Reservations can only be made for the inside. How difficult is it to get outdoor porch seating? We are arriving tomorrow and would like to have dinner tomorrow night or Saturday night (3 people). Thanks!

It wouldn't be that hard at all honestly! If anything you will just have a small wait time of less that 20 minutes.
Hi! Is this restaurant family friendly? And do you offer kids portions?

I thought it was kid friendly because they had a high chair for my 9 month old grandson. I do not know if they have a kids menu though. There was a family of 4 that sat at a table near us and both kids looked like they... More

There's lots of street parking nearby but otherwise I don't think they have a dedicated lot.
