A chorus of “amens” once echoed through the church-filled streets surrounding the restaurant. Now, the same song is sung from the mouths of our extremely satisfied guests. Most who dine here agree, Amen Street is like a spiritual experience: awe-inspiring, moving and unforgettable.
Amen Street’s guests are shelling out love for our food and amazing service all over the web. The Amen Street gospel is being spread to hundreds of seafood-seeking diners, and we cannot thank our reviewers enough. Here’s a couple of recent five-star experiences via Trip Advisor.
From an out-of-towner…
“I seldom write reviews about restaurants, but I loved this place so much that I came back twice on a short weekend trip to Charleston. All staff I had contact with (bar tender, the waiters, the manager) were truly welcoming and genuinely pleased to serve. But what kept me coming was the food. Wonderful fresh oysters, mouth watering fish and tasteful, right sized deserts. And I found the she-crab soup to be just perfect…
The bar is great on its own, with a wide selection of drinks and wine by the glass, and seems quite popular with locals…I am planning my next trip to Charleston to be back here.”
From a Family of Foodies…
“Oh where do I begin. Amen Street is exactly my kind of place and I have visited several times. The food is all delicious and so well prepared. The service is excellent. I highly recommend Amen Street to friends visiting Charleston and sometimes find that they visit more than once on their trip (as we always do).
The fish is fabulous and so fresh. I have tried several preparations, all wonderful. I especially enjoy the blackened, very flavorful but not overwhelming as blackened usually is. The she crab soup is delicious. I have witnessed several diners tip up their bowl for every last drop.
The fried green tomato appetizer is well prepared with wonderfully complimentary sauces. The fish tacos are the best I have ever had, I like those for lunch but my daughter enjoys them at supper too. If you have children, make sure to order them some of the children’s fruit. Beautiful, fresh berries with nothing on them, just like I would do at home. They don’t skimp on children’s items as most places do.
Everything is fantastic and it should not be missed when you are on the Peninsula. I cannot recommend Amen highly enough!”
