We recently had lunch here and would definitely recommend it. I had the beet salad which was large and something different than the usual run of the meal salads. It was delicious as were the hush puppies. The shrimp corndogs were delicious, too. Reasonably priced, too! The restaurant is uniquely decorated with oyster chandeliers and other southern accents. I would... More

Great lunch spot with the family this afternoon. Highly recommend that you get the hush puppies appetizer. They're huge and are served with honey! The food was priced reasonably, and the service was great. Right by Rainbow Row!

We really enjoyed our visit to Amen Street Fish & Raw bar. We originally wanted to go to another raw bar down the street but it was too crowded. We followed the concierge's suggestion and were not disappointed. I love seafood but I just can't eat the fried stuff you frequently find in southern seafood cuisine. Lots of great options... More

My wife and I weren't really all that hungry so we basically just stopped in for appetizers. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. My wife had she crab soup and blackened shrimp and I had the tuna tacos. Very tasty, we loved everything. We will definitely return to try out more of the menu next time we're in town.

Had to try them! Fun to eat and a whole lot better than a hot dog. They came with a horseradish mustard dipping sauce. My entree was seared scallops with pork belly served over sautéed kale and roasted carrots. A nice variety of oysters was available too. Varied selection of wines to choose from. Casual, relaxing setting but with efficient... More

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.
