Above average dinner, service and experience. Waiter was very good about suggestions. East Bay has many excellent choices. Our hotel suggested Amen as personal favorite. We agree. Delicious hush puppies.

Warning regarding crab cakes in SC. It's not MD crabs. They use a local crab and it's just not as flavorful. Same issue at every... More

We started with two different kinds of raw oysters, which were great and served with high quality horseradish. One of the items on the menu was topped with fried... More

I'm always wary of restaurants in super touristy spots like downtown Charleston, and I've had a few meals in this area that were very mediocre, but This Place is Awesome! Started out with a great Bloody Mary. Then the She-crab soup, which was the greatest bowl of soup in the universe!!! Finally their signature Shrimp & Grits, which was also... More

We were looking for oysters on our first afternoon in Charleston, Our hotel recommended Amen Street Fish and Raw Bar. My first time having local NC oysters and they were delicious. Fresh, and ice cold. She Crab soup was the best we found. The fish is very good as well. We enjoyed it so much that we ate lunch there... More

(I really wanted to give it 4 1/2) My friend chose to eat at Amen Street for her birthday. I had no problems making a 7:00 reservation for four a few days beforehand. We arrived a few minutes early but were seated right away. Our server, Michael was very nice and even offered us to use a complimentary fried green... More
