Having visited Charleston many times and having dined at a number of the iconic eateries there over the years, this visit my wife and I hoped to discover yet another gem to enjoy a delicious lunch. We found it... Amen Street Fish & Raw Bar. Stylish, reasonably quiet, comfortable and with service, to boot. My wife's beautiful salad was covered... More

Had just checked in to our hotel early, couldn't get into our room yet. We decided to take the advice of Jenny from the hotel along with a special coupon for an appetizer. All we could say was bring on the oysters and shrimp! The oysters we so fresh we thought we could hear the boat dropping of the seafood.... More

We only ate salads and multiple dozens of various types of oysters. They were all really fresh, briny and good. We sat at the bar and chatted with the bar staff who were all really friendly.

If you want to enjoy local fish prepared well, then don't miss the Amen Street restaurant. A great local beet salad was our appetizer followed by snapper over succotash. The drinks were generous and served promptly. The only negative was that the tables were very close together in the back of the restaurant.

Had reservations for McCradys Tavern, but for some odd reason, they had very limited fish and seafood on the menu? Left and went to Amens and found a jewel that saved our evening! Josh, our bartender, was busy the night before turkey day, but was cordial and informative while hustling the drinks! He recommended the Holy Basil, which we both... More

This place was recommended by our shuttle driver. It was close by so we gave it a try. She-crab soup was excellent. Fried green tomato appetizer very good. The fish entree was ok. Had to send back for another piece of fish because was SO salty could not eat. Succotash with entree was good. My husband had oysters and enjoyed... More

The best she-crab soup ever; Complex flavor sand textures. Nice selection of oysters from a wide variety of places. Perfectly shucked; No bits of shell at all. Helpful service... Great wine list with an unusual French sparking wine from the Jura, that we loved.

This restaurant was close to our hotel, and I had read good reviews about it. It did not disappoint. The she crab soup was fabulous, and the rest of the meal was fresh and excellent as well. The place is casual and comfortable, and I wouldn't hesitate going back.
