Poe’s Tavern

Sullivan’s Island. 2210 Middle St. 883-0083

So you want to score a cold brew, bodacious burger, and a glimpse at some skimpily clad beach bunnies fresh off the sand — and you want to do it without leaving your seat at the bar? Multitudes of sandlot bars could get you one or two of those things without much trouble, but only Poe’s delivers that true drop-out beach feel without subjecting you to toothless drifters and bad ’70s guitar rock. They just keep getting better out there — throwing down great grub and one of the tastiest slabs of fresh beef topped with all the fixings in a setting right out of a barefoot Jimmy Buffett song.
