A Nostalgic Eating Experience On Sullivan's Island, SC
Sullivan's Island, SC in the Charleston area has more than a beach and beautful vacation homes, it has Poe's Tavern. This tavern was founded to preserve the spirit of Edgar Allen Poe, author of short stories and poem's of the detective and horror story genres. He is best remembered for his popular poem "The Raven". Under the pseudonym Edgar Allan Perry, Poe was stationed at Fort Moultrie on 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. Poe's Tavern has a menu consisting of appetizers, soups, salads, tacos, sandwiches, beer, and wine. Poe's is located at 2210 Middle Street, Sullivan's Island, SC. You can eat inside or outside. My kids and myself made a stop recently at Poe's Tavern and enjoyed the eating experience. It was a very relaxed and informal setting with good food and drink. Check it out when you are in the area.
