My husband and I visited in Dec 2017 and we had a fabulous dinner at the bar. The calamari appetizer was amazing. He had the mahi-mahi and I had the shrimp and grits which was amazing. Would highly recommend.

The menu includes a variety of seafood dishes such as oysters, clams and shrimp in addition to an ever growing raw bar menu. Amen Street supports Charleston's local fishing industry with market fresh fish. We are open for lunch and dinner. Walk-ins are welcome and reservations are accepted as well.
