Poogan's Southern Kitchen is bringing fresh Southern cuisine 

to Cardinal Crossing in late spring of 2022. 

The name Poogan’s is as steeped in the history of the downtown Charleston, South Carolina, restaurant scene as it is synonymous with homemade scratch cooking and Southern hospitality. Poogan’s Porch, established in 1976, is Charleston’s oldest independent culinary establishment and remains one of the most popular destinations for diners in the city.

Poogan’s Southern Kitchen was born out of the ever-burgeoning desire and demand to offer that rich history and commitment to quality outside of the Charleston peninsula. Knowing full well Poogan’s Porch could never truly be duplicated away from the walls of the famous 19th century home on Queen Street, it was the careful decision of the family to take its recipes, traditions, techniques, and hospitality to create a stylish Southern diner in its image.

From our fluffy biscuits to our famous buttermilk fried chicken and shrimp & grits, Poogan’s Southern Kitchen brings our signature comfortable and approachable dining experience to a modern setting. Guests of our Cardinal Crossing location will enjoy a spacious restaurant that includes private indoor dining, bar seating, and a 1,000-square-foot heated outdoor dining area. The indoor space will seat 136 people (including 14 in the private dining area) and the outdoor patio will seat 60 people. Per our tradition, the outdoor dining space will be pet-friendly. 

With more than 40 years of experience serving Southern food to our guests, we are proud to offer you breakfast, lunch, and dinner with Poogan’s memorable quality stamped on every dish that leaves our kitchen. With our expanded venture into Forest Acres, we will continue to grow the name made famous by a fluffy little dog who enjoyed afternoon naps on a front porch that now bears his name.
