All this talk of Poogan, not a pic or painting in the whole place. Food was fine, but not good enough to rise above the other much better restaurants in Charleston. Same with cocktails, fancy names for uninspired normalcy. Ordered steak medium rare, it was...More

We love Poogans and our personal server was wonderful. Our complaint starts with when we walked in and we're greeted by a host in a spaghetti strap camisole and leggings with see through panels. Not at all professional attire. Everyone else looked professional and dressed...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

My friends and I dined here on a weekday evening without a reservation--wait was 15 minutes. The service was prompt and thorough and the server knew the menu well. We all enjoyed our food. I had a ravioli pasta dish which was excellent. I have...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?

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