Friendly and accomodating.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAmen! Never disappoints!No matter what you have here, it is delicious. Earlier this week we sat at the bar and ate - not because there was no table for us but b/c we arrived early, sat at the bar and was so comfortable and having such a great time that we just stayed there. We had some very very nice 'spicy' martini's served in wine glasses, the the calamari appetizer. No rings but long chunky pieces of perfected breaded and fried calamari. Chased that with a Cesar (which I think was an entire head of romaine!) and the crab cake dinner.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMCasual atmosphere, great food,Casual atmosphere, great food, good service.

Just be wary of the split plate fee. Was a suprise when the bill came.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time to Charleston andFirst time to Charleston and Amen was recommended to us. The oysters were wonderful as was the She crab soup. Out of the wait staff-recommended scallops. The capellini was very good, but we found the grouper was mushy. The waitress started out very prompt, yet service was quite slow at the end. Overall a terrific choice!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding! WaiterFood was outstanding!
