Sullivan's Island

Poe's Tavern

2210 Middle St, Sullivan's Island, SC, 29482



Named for the legendary poet and writer Edgar Allen, Poe's sits on Sullivan's Island by the beach, not far from downtown Charleston. The tavern has an extensive burger menu, a variety of fish tacos, and a wide-range of beer on draft. This is probably not the best place to go to help your bikini body, but it's perfect for working up a daytime buzz before an afternoon of languishing on the sand.

Poe's has delicious burgers, and shrimp and fish tacos. But you're there for the cute boys and the atmosphere. It's a total beach bar and a Sullivan's Island institution.
