A friend recommended this place to me based on her previous experience and someone gave us a coupon for a free app, so why not?? So glad we did! We chose the Fried Green Tomatoes (with pimiento cheese and pickled okra); it was amazing... and...I'm not a Fried Green Tomato fan. I also had the Tuna Tacos which is an unusual choice for me, but I rather enjoyed them. The Mother Teresa drinks I enjoyed were delicious!More

Great experience! All the food was delicious and other patron’s food around us looked equally as delicious! We would highly recommend the fried oyster appetizer with bacon and blue cheese and the Tuna Tacos! I’d love to try the beet salad and Tuna tartar on...my next visit!! Delicious cocktails too!More

Amazing food and service! If you are in Charleston Amen Street Fish & Raw Bar is a must! My husband and I are frequent visitors to Charleston. This is the first time we have gone to Amen Street. We will be back and will recommend...it to all our friends, everything from the outstanding food to the outstanding service was amazing. I had the shrimp and grits, and my husband had the fish tacos both were amazing. We also got the Calamari as an appetizer. There is no way you can leave this restaurant disappointed. It was all amazing! I highly recommend trying this fabulous restaurant!More

Loved the ambiance, the service was excellent and the food was great as expected. Everyone in our party had a cup of the She Crab soup, and loved it. You could taste the sherry in the soup, but it didn’t overpower the flavor. We each...ordered fresh fish served in “Low Country Style”, which our server, KC, recommended. IA couple of us went for the Key Lime pie for dessert; not decadent but well done and a great way to finish a great meal.More

The shrimp and grits are absolutely amazing. We didn’t have reservations but they seated us at the bar and all was great. We had the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer and they were great. This is a must visit restaurant!!

I had the pleasure of bringing my wife here for dinner a few days ago. The environment was lovely, and from the moment we sat down we had a wonderful time. Our server, Danielle, was very knowledgeable and provided us some excellent recommendations. I had...the generously-sized crab cakes, which were delightful and cooked just right, and came with a delicious side of kale, shiitake mushrooms, potatoes, and red peppers. My wife had the shrimp and grits, which have won awards for a reason -- I'm not much of a shrimp fan, but I loved them almost as much as she did! When the bill came, I was pleasantly surprised at what we got for what we paid-- a wonderful environment, an outstanding server, and an award-winning delicious meal, all without breaking the bank. Highly recommend!!More

There is seating out front on a wide sidewalk, it looked comfortable. Very little traffic going by, so it should be relatively quiet while you eat.
