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.

    Service and atmosphere count toward a favorable dining experience. In this instance, neither my party nor I experienced quality service or atmosphere. Turning the music down several decibels might have helped with the atmosphere. Our waitress not popping around to our table high as a kite - not kidding - would likely have improved the service. All this on a Thursday evening at 5:45 when there were barely any customers in the venue. Two of my party said their food was good. Not great or outstanding, but good. When assessing that same food as it pertained to the prices charged, they were in far less agreement that they enjoyed their orders. We are all local. Heading downtown means you have your choice of great restaurants to choose from. In this case, we wanted to remain within walking distance of another planned activity, so we settled on Amen Street. Never again. And I am embarrassed that this venue caters to tourists who do not know any better, wander in, and waste their money. Amen Street should not represent Charleston's best foot forward food scene.

    We had a very nice meal. We were seated in a booth near the front door - which was ok until a group of loudmouth “dudes” came and sat at the oyster bar and proceeded to drop F-bomb after F-bomb for the duration of our meal. My wife and I (and our two age 17+ boys) can all swear like sailors, but I think in a place like Amen that shouldn’t be happening and should be addressed. Other than that, we had a nice meal and will likely return.

    Best Shrimp and grits I ever tried! Also, I got the passion of the fruit cocktail, and it was amazing! 10/10
