I wanted to check out Charleston’s harbor and this restaurant was recommended by the hotel locals and had a good Yelp rating. So I headed out here. It is on East Bay Street, very close to Waterfront Park and right in the thick of the French Quarter district. The street is full of diverse restaurants offering mostly American, southern, and...

8 of us (and 4 month old in stroller) went for dinner on a Thursday night. Food was amazing and they were very accommodating with the toddler. Service was a bit slow, but it was graduation weekend at College of Charleston. Maybe the best hushpuppies I have ever had - served with local honey. Wow.

We had dinner at Amen Street and Fish bar per a recommendation from another local establishment. It was beautiful inside, great location and our server was friendly and knowledgeable. My husband and I had the she crab soup and I had the shrimp and grits. Both were good, nothing spectacular.

Lunch was good but the menu was limited. Great if you want raw oysters. Fried green tomato appetizer. They did make me seared scallops ala cart. So they can accommodate.

Food and service was excellent. It is a bit expensive, especially for lunch. Oysters were about 30% more than I would have expected to pay. Our lunch (oysters and salad) was almost $50 pp and we did not have any alcohol. Food was delicious.

Amen Street Fish & Raw Bar opened in 2009, reviving the former Amen name of Cumberland Street and restoring this historic corner. The new renovation stays true to the beauty of the original 1800's architecture while creating a comfortable atmosphere for contemporary life. Located at 205 East Bay Street in the heart of the historic district this Charleston seafood restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor dining all within walking distance of the local Market and the Charleston Harbor. 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.
