Had the best lunch in Recent memory. All fresh and local and perfectly prepared. Great drinks. Lovely oysters with inventive toppings. Sautéed Cobia on corn relish was amazing. Shrimp and grits raised the traditional to a. Ew high.

It's fine; nothing was wrong but nothing was very exciting either. The crab soup was tasty; the bartender was not very engaging so we left once done with the meal.

Lunch was good but the menu was limited. Great if you want raw oysters. Fried green tomato appetizer. They did make me seared scallops ala cart. So they can accommodate.

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.
