My friends & I were visiting Charleston and wanted to find a good seafood restaurant, but we were tired of eating at the "commercialized touristy" ones that you find walking up & down Market Street. Amen Street Fish & Raw Bar is literally 1 block from the market right on Bay Street and is great! My friends & I like to get a taste of everyone else's plates -(okay, use your clean fork first :) - so we all tasted the following yummies: hushpuppy appetizers with honey dip, 2 different fresh fish entrees - grouper & tuna with herbs & chopped tomatoes selection on each, and a sinful chocolate dessert. We shared a white wine choice that was good & reasonable. We weren't crazy about the she crab soup (not enough crab meat) or the bread pudding dessert (maybe because the chocolate selection was so much better?) Also, I do like a little bread with olive oil with dinner and was told the restaurant "doesn't do bread, only saltine crackers". Otherwise, the service and food were great! Tip: If you want to try the appetizers and/or dessert and still want to watch your weight and cost of the bill, this restaurant also offers 1/2 size (and 1/2 price) seafood dinner entrees - nice option :)
