Poe’s Tavern – Sullivan’s Island, SC!

Poe's Tavern!

Sullivan’s Island, SC. One of the most beautiful places on earth. It has that “back in time” feeling. I would like to retire and live there (wouldn’t everyone)… beautiful homes, cool businesses, and of course, the ocean! Tucked in the small area of “town” is this wonderful restaurant that’s been around for about ten years now… it’s called POE’S TAVERN. Everything on the menu has an Edgar Allen Poe name to it, it’s so creative. The t-shirts are cool too, so if you make it there, check them out! Fabulous burgers and pretty much everything else! It’s fun to eat outside or in. It’s a happening place!

I know what you’re thinking… WHERE’S THE MENU?? Right HERE my friends… check it out!

Read a bit about Poe’s from their website:

Named in honor of Edgar Allan Poe, we’re best known for great burgers and drinks.

Much like his work, the life of Edgar Allan Poe was short, tragic and shrouded in mystery. Best known as the author of the popular poem “The Raven”, Poe is credited with creating the detective and horror story genres. After a brief stint at the University of Virginia, Poe enlisted in the army under the pseudonym Edgar Allan Perry and was stationed at Fort Moultrie at the western end of Sullivan’s Island for thirteen months beginning November 18,1827. His time on the island inspired “The Gold Bug”, a story about a mystical beetle that led to buried treasure. He died alone, impoverished and inebriated at the age of 40 amid conflicting accounts of his demise,  yet left an indelible legacy on American literature.

Catch you back here tomorrow!

    1. Ah yes, great minds think alike! I have mentioned Poe’s several times but haven’t designated an entire post to it until today… My parents love Poe’s, it’s a favorite, always a good time! Good idea to look at rentals early! Hope to see you next year Kate!


  1. Poe’s is one of my favorite restaurants in the Charleston area. Sometimes I’m ashamed that living in Charleston, I don’t go there more often. But maybe it’s better to keep it special? I don’t know for sure. What I do know- Poe’s is delicious (shout out to Amontillado, my favorite burger!)


    1. I hear ya! Poe’s is a favorite (should out to the GOLD BUG burger w/Pimiento cheese, oh la la!) – and GET OUT! I never noticed the AMONTILLADO before! Next time! Which, like you, will probably be the next time someone visits… Living here I just don’t seem to make it there very often. But each time I go… it is so special! Ohhhh, sounds good right now!
