South Carolina is famous for its low country cooking and Poogan’s Porch has been serving it since 1976. Start with the Pimento Cheese Fritters and the She Crab Soup. You will not be disappointed. Their “Traditional” menu offers low country favorites with a twist – Country Fried Pork Chop is served with Hot Honey Fried Brussel Sprout and Potato Hash and Country Ham Gravy. And of course there is Country Fried Chicken as well. On the “Contemporary” menu, the Braised Cab Beef Short Rib with Horseradish Cauliflower Puree comes highly recommended. The menu clearly states all proteins and ingredients are Certified South Carolina grown farm to table products and lists the farms that are sourced. You might want to save room for their famous Peanut Butter Pie. In any case, you will leave Poogan’s Porch full and satisfied.
