Megan was fabulous, oysters and shrimp corn dogs !!!
Lovely meal in buzzing restaurant. Food very good quite noisy.
Excellent food and service. Oysters, Scallops, Mussels, all good. I would definitely recommend! Very accommodating on my wife's dairy allergy. Huge thanks!
Unbelievable. All around
Was not pleased that both people celebrating birthday received nothing. Why ask the occasion then?
Always a favorite when we are in Charleston. Seared scallops and shrimp corn dogs are a must! Michael, our server tonight was super professional and fun!
Fun upbeat restaurant in a great location. The Low Country Grouper was excellent and the grouper special was very good a well. We sat near the hostess stand and bar so it was a little loud but still a fun night with an excellent meal!
Found out about Amem from visitor center. Nice find. The happy hour food was delicious especially the mussells and calmari.
Food was spectacular and service was amazing! We will definitely be back.
I’ve eaten here numerous times. While the food is very good, about 75% of our visits they are out of fried oysters. And that’s disappointing. If you are set on fried oysters, you are well advised to phone ahead. Be prepared to be disappointed in the response. Mind you, the place is full of oysters on the raw bar, but we’ve been told multiple times, “We’re out of fried oysters.”
Hostess and waitress were friendly, warm and very helpful! Best calamari we have ever had! Additionally, our reservation was handled efficiently on a busy Saturday in downtown Charleston! Perfect!
Amen Street is our favorite place to eat in Charleston, the food is always excellent and not overpriced. I would highly recommend giving Amen a shot vs any of the fine dining or seafood restaurants.
Frances was a superior waitress!! Food was terrific. Great evening!!
For being located in the tourist trap area of Charleston, I was extremely pleased. Great service! Our server was awesome. She was knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The house oysters were very good as promised. Fish tacos and shrimp tasty. Glad we found our way to Amen!
Service was fantastic! We enjoyed our meal!
We LOVE Amen Street!
A must for our family when I’m Charleston! Best shrimp and grits in town!
First time and will come back!
The shrimp and grits was sensational -the best we have ever had. I would go back to Charleston just to have it again. Our server, Michael, was wonderful and helped make the experience as fabulous as the food.
Great lunch experience. Relaxed atmosphere, excellent music, and good service. The food was excellent. Will definitely be a regular stop.
We had a great experience at Amen Street. All the dishes from the raw bar were excellent and cocktails were delicious. However, we ordered a few dishes from the kitchen that were a little bland. Our server was very personable and did everything she could to ensure we enjoyed our meal. Overall, my date and I had a great time and would definitely go back.
Service is outstanding. Food can take a little bit but tastes absolutely amazing. 10/10
Our server Danielle was lovely and gave great recommendations. We will absolutely be back.
Fun night! Good food! Great service!
We had a wonderful evening at Amen. This was our first time in Charleston. We arrived early and had a drink at the bar before being seated. Everyone was so friendly. The atmosphere was welcoming and the food was delicious! Our dinner at Amen was the perfect introduction to Charleston. Highly recommend.
Loved it! I recommend the red vinegar sauce for oysters
Everything was delicious, attentive waitress, and nice vibe. I’d return without hesitation.
The Food and service is always outstanding!
Had the best service!
Wonderful meal and outstanding service! Even the young lady at the front door did a great job. Will b back soon!
Very good dinner. We had reservations at 6:30 pm and were promptly seated. Our server, Michael, was attentive and not intrusive. She Crab soup was excellent. Our seafood platter was very good with every item cooked to perfection. Serving size was more than ample.
As with many restaurants in Charleston, the noise level grew as the number of dinners increased making conversation difficult. Perhaps some improvements could be made in the noise dampening area.
Other than the noise level, we had a most enjoyable meal and look forward to dining here again.
9-19 19 Hood fried oysters
Outstanding service, food and priced right. Was there two times in three days because of the food especially the shrimp dogs on a stick.
Service was amazing. Gracie was very patient and very pleasant. After a long day she made the day end right. Will definitely back. The bar area is very energetic and welcoming.
All we can say is that we went first on Monday, again last night and will be there this evening Wednesday. Excellent food and a great brick building. Lots of opportunities to avoid fried food. Absolutely recommend this place
Wonderful dinner, our server was outstanding! Loved our meal. Especially loved the mushroom, shrimp risotto.
Oysters, She-Crab Soup and Tuna Tartare we’re amazing. Staff very friendly. Would definitely recommend and return.
Disappointed in the she crab soup which we had heard was excellent. We barely had any crab meat at all in our cups. We thought the shrimp corn dogs were interesting, but overpriced. Atmosphere was nice and if we had wanted a burger, they looked excellent. However, we were there for the seafood.
Disappointed that the she crab soup was thin, tasted watery with no lumps of crab. We went for restaurant week and think maybe they were trying to stretch it too far... However the rest of our meal was great. Delicious grouper and shrimp scampi. Nice atmosphere and good service.
Everything was excellent. Meghan was an attentive and friendly server. Thank you !
