Description: 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.

Ordered the herb grilled snapper and friend ordered the lobster and shrimp risotto. Both meals were above average. Had a bottle of Conundrum wine with the meal. Prompt and attentive service. Only complaint was the side of braised spinach was terrible. It was baby spinach (seemed straight out of the Fresh Express bag) with oil on it. Minor complaint for on overall good meal.

This was our first visit to Amen Raw Bar but it certainly won't be our last. Their Happy Hour drinks and menu provide an affordable option for dining. Loved sitting at the Bar, great atmosphere, friendly service, good food and drinks. We will be back often

This restaurant has been recommended several times to us so we tried it once and was just ok. We like to give a place a second chance and it was worse the second time. The service was good both times. The food and beverages are very expensive for what it includes. The food is not up to Charleston standards. My son had to go through 3 things on the menu before getting something the restaurant had not run out of. With so many wonderful restaurants in Charleston I would skip this one.
