Tradition Meets Innovation
While Amen Street offers some of the best fresh shrimp dishes that are classically Charleston, we are no stranger to producing new takes on old favorites, either. The shrimp entrée items you’ll find on our Dinner Menu are prepared with the finest, responsibly harvested Gulf shrimp during the off-season.
Guests can choose from an array of shrimp dishes rooted in the flavors of the South Carolina coast. Sample a handcrafted version of Shrimp & Grits, made with andouille sausage and served over local Geechie Boy grits. Or try other great choices, like our Shrimp & Mushroom Risotto, made with locally-grown Mepkin Abbey shitake mushrooms and a to-die-for white wine sauce. And of course, there’s our famous Shrimp Corndogs and Fried Seafood Platter to round out all of your shrimp bases.
