Thank you to our Travelocity reviewers for these fabulous compliments! We promise to keep up the good work.
“Amen Street was a lovely find in Charleston! It was a hidden gem. It felt energetic and lively, yet quaint and cozy. The food was excellent, just perfect. We enjoyed the mussels and fresh catch cooked in a scrumptious light sauce. The green fried tomatoes were some of we had during our stay in Charleston. Just a delightful evening. The oyster chandeliers decorated the ceilings and exposed brick on the floors made for a really great ambience with excellent service and food. I strongly recommend this restaurant for an exceptional experience!”- Travelcharm, Minneapolis, MN
“This restaurant was a great find and their oysters were a big hit for our family. We were in Charleston for three days and ate there all three days. The restaurant gives off a cozy and warm feeling. There are big windows looking out onto East Bay St. which allows you to do a lot of people watching at the same time as enjoying the food. We also had their fish taco’s that were tasty… The po’boys sandwiches were good as well. We certainly will go back the next time we are in Charleston.” – dhq77, The Bahamas
“We enjoyed wonderful raw oysters, a lobster and shrimp risotto that was delicious, and a supremely fresh Tuna Carpaccio that was admittedly very tasty (I generally steer clear of raw fish). Service was friendly and prompt without being overbearing or disingenuous. Prices were reasonable. With the wide variety of seafood options in Charleston, I would definitely recommend Amen Street over all of the other restaurants focusing on the area’s copious fresh seafood. “– Tacoma Joe, Tacoma, WA
“I think having seafood is a must when you are in Charleston. At Amen you’ll find a focused, modern menu filled with delicious, fresh and often local seafood dishes set in a modernly restored building. Our waitress was extremely patient with us, providing a great description of each of the oysters on the menu – which were great. Actually, everything we tried was great (lobster and Shrimp risotto, fish tacos and the tuna crudo) including the cucumber infused gin & tonic.”- MLSTacoma, Yakima, WA
“What a great find in a town full of good restaurants. Great FRESH seafood restaurant. The staff was very helpful, friendly, knowledgeable and made us feel at home. The room is cozy, warm and wonderfully decorated. Our meals made us wishing we had another week in Charleston so we could come back every night. Great end to a week of travel, and memorable meals, along the East Coast. Prices were very reasonable for the excellent quality of the food and portion sizes.” – GwenL5, Madison, WI
