CHSReview

Poogan’s Porch in the King Street Historic District is the closest many of us will ever get to having a Southern grandma who’s a great cook. This place opened in 1976 inside a Victorian house that’s more than 100 years old and having brunch or lunch on their porch is a Charleston right of passage. Their excellent servers will be happy to suggest dishes, but the shrimp and grits, barbecuban, and pimento cheese fritters are always excellent choices.
