Lowcountry Heartiness with a Side of GhostAlthough you can find Lowcountry cuisine along most of coastal South Carolina to Savannah, Georgia, its foundation feeds off of "Chucktown." Since 1976, this former grand Victorian home turned culinary landmark conjures up some of Charleston's most authentic Southern fare. Expect incredible plates of classic dishes like she-crab soup, hoppin' john, pirloo, shrimp and grits, fried okra, fried green tomatoes, catfish, and fried chicken alongside modern choices like sweet tea-glazed salmon and pork chops.
Aside from the food, Poogan's has had a reputation of serving something eerie. While relishing in your dining experience, if you happen to see an elderly lady in a black dress, chances are you've encountered the resident spirit of Zoe St. Armand, a schoolteacher who owned the house in the early 1900's. Patrons who claim to see her often think she's one of the customers.

Quaint little restaurant supposedly haunted by the spirit of a woman and also a dog. Really enjoyed this on our first trip to Charleston many years ago. My husband ate the shrimp and grits and said it was very spicy but really delicious.
