Poogan's Porch is among my five favorite restaurants in Charleston. The food, service, and full dining experience are always exceptional. In February 2015, I participated in their rollback menu for the first time. Each year, the restaurant offers a special menu priced from their opening in the 1970s. The portions this year were huge and the food, as always, was delicious. Recommended: Fried pimento cheese appetizer.

This is a bit dated since I just came across my notes today! Visited on 3/4/14 and would definitely go again. i do not recall now what our entrees were, but they were good. My notes consisted of this. " Wedge salad was excellent! The pickled egg really set it off. The biscuit was light N fluffy. Fried green tomatoes were very average; too thick and not well seasoned. The chutney and goat cheese butter was a nice touch, but could not rescue it."

Charleston is a true foodie paradise and Poogan's held up to its reputation! We were warmly welcomed with sparkling champagne and warm, fluffy house made biscuits with whipped honey butter. I had to give the full run down of these biscuits - because they were THE best bread I've ever had (including all types of bread!). They were lighter and fluffier than all biscuits I've encountered. The whipped honey butter only brought them to a whole different level. I devoured three before my appetizer and ate another two along with dessert. Unbelievable! Fried pimento cheese fritters - oozing, gooey cheesy goodness topped with refreshing, green tomato jam. Perfect appetizer! Calabash styled shrimp and oyster with red rice risotto and collard green - lightly battered and flash fried, the seafood was fresh and flavorful, the red rice risotto was cooked in sweet tomato base, the collard green had a spicy kick. A true southern comfort food. Shellfish and grits - after having magnolias for lunch and learning poogan's won the james beard nomination for this dish, I was ecstatic to see how it would compare. Unfortunately this was by far my least favorite shellfish/shrimp and grits dish on my entire trip. Not saying it wasn't good, just wasn't great. My grit cake was overdone and way too dry. The shrimp and scallop were oversalted. In addition, this dish could use a bit more sauce. It was missing the comfort southern cuisine feel. Beignet - made with the same amazing biscuit dough base, dusted with powder sugar, served with raspberry jam and a cup of coffee. The cup of coffee was a bit odd, but nevertheless it was the perfect sweet ending! A little disappointed by their award winning shellfish and grits, nevertheless an amazing, fine meal. Would definitely recommend everyone visiting Charleston to check out poogan's on his/her visit!

this was my first stop when i first got in to charleston. we went on a thursday night and was super concerned about the wait since we were not able to get a reservation. tip: go early! theres a first come first served area. i thought it would maybe we 5 seats at the bar but there was communal high top tables too! we found seats easily and it looked like output was fast. the food was awesome and i drank so much sweet tea. please make sure you get the mac and cheese. i got the pork chop which i thought was amazing, my boyfriend got the fish which came out a little overcooked but still tasty. our waiter was great and the atmosphere is exactly the southern feel that i wanted.

I cannot comment on the food as I never got the chance to try it. In my opinion, the hostess working on the morning of Sunday, March 29th was rude & unaccommodating. There were 3 of us & a dog & we would have had to eat on the porch. On the porch there were 3 tables with 2 seats each & nobody out there (as it was a super chilly morning & we had been walking around outside for hours waiting for the sun to reach the Poogan Porch so we might not feel miserably cold). The hostess tells me she can't seat 3 people out on the porch because the tables only seat 2- so, she'll only seat a party of 2 out there. End of story- goodbye! Not... Let's push 2 tables together or would you be ok with sitting 2 at one & 1 at another table? I've never felt so summarily dismissed by a person in the service/hospitality industry before.

We stopped at Poogan's Porch for Sunday brunch before we headed to the airport. I had a simple meal of eggs, bacon, and home fries. It was very good and the service was excellent.

One of the best places to eat in charleston. Be sure to have a reservation a few days before you go if you plan to go for dinner on a weekend or holiday.
