Wanted to eat here after hearing all the talk about this restaurant being so great. My significant other and I really liked the atmosphere as we were able to get a table on the porch. The food on the other hand is good, but not great and the service follows suit. We got the fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits,... More

We were there for brunch and the overall experience was good. Our waitress always smiling and doing her best. Food was good, we ordered the chicken & waffles (sweet potatoe waffles by the way), french toast and eggs, Mac & Cheese. Homemade biscuits are delicious! You can reserve on line to avoid long lines.

Poogan's has become a favorite of mine when visiting Charleston! My husband and I went last night and had dinner on the back patio. The atmosphere was lovely with outdoor lights strung about and a cool breeze. I suggest making reservations to ensure you get to dine here. I had the Shrimp & Grits and it was wonderful! My husband... More

Always had heard of Poogans and finally decided to give it a try. Wonderful! If you are a seafood lover like myself, the shrimp and grits are delicious. However, if you're not. The Fried Chicken is absolutely a great choice. Waitress Rosa was very helpful and gave great suggestions. We will definitely be back!

I've been here before. A very long time ago. It lived up to my memories. The restaurant is conveniently located in the old downtown area. We had a reservation but got there very early because we had been driving. They were able to accommodate us right away. I had a French toast that was amazing with lots of fresh nuts... More

Our first time here-and oh my it was so good! The biscuits are delicious, the fried chicken dinner with homemade mashed potatoes and gravy, collard greens are all just awesome! The she crab soup was really good but different-a little spicy peppery but still very good. The service was good and we would definitely go back! LOVED the fried chicken!

We were seated in the bar area at a "community table". Service was very good as was the food. The shrimp & grits were tasty. While we were finishing our meal two of us got up briefly and they seated new people before we were done. A poor ending to a good meal.

We went with a group for dinner. The restaurant is an old home and we had dinner upstairs (steep staircase). The food is mainly Southern. I ordered the wedge salad which came deconstructed with pickled egg. It was good. I also ordered the calabash seafood. It was spicy and not really calabash. I would not order that again. I also...

While we decided we would eat in the bar area, we ended up eating at the bar, where we didn't find the bartender very personable or engaging. She seemed to have a bad attitude or was overwhelmed at the time. We would recommend the food and ambiance.
