Oysters drive the culinary culture and marine ecosystems here in Charleston, SC. They are definitely an integral part of life here in the Holy City. But there’s more ways to eat them than raw or steamed! Come try the best fried oysters in town at Amen Street Fish and Raw Bar!
Our Fried Oysters
We pride ourselves in our wide selection of oysters and how prominently they’re featured on our menu. In addition to the wide selection of fresh oysters available on our Raw Bar Menu, our Fried Oysters are the perfect appetizer or snack to enjoy during HappyHour. Served with a side of our homemade dill tartar sauce, our Fried Oysters are a fresh take on a Charleston classic.
Can’t get enough of them? We’re also happy to add fried oysters to any of our salads! Enjoy these in our Roasted Local Beets, Seasonal, or Supper Club Caesar salads for an extra pop of flavor and protein.
Recommended Wine Pairings
If you’re planning on enjoying your fried oysters with an alcoholic beverage, we have a few suggestions for wine pairings. There are our go-to wine recommendations to pair with this dish:
- The Blanc Pescador is a white wine from the Mediterranean region that pairs wonderfully with seafood. It’s fermented twice, resulting in a dry, fruity finish with a unique freshness, elegance, and personality.
- The Wieninger Gruner Veltliner is a dry, savory, acidic white wine from Austria. Veltliner will impress you with hints of green apple, lemon, radish, and arugula. Its dry yet fruity flavors make it an excellent pairing with oysters.
More Ways To Enjoy Oysters!
In addition to our classic fried oysters, our specialty oysters menu boasts an impressively large selection of fresh oysters from all across the eastern seaboard. When ordering from our Raw Bar menu, you’ll be able to select oysters local to the Lowcountry and South Carolina, like Privateer Point, Bluffton Wilds, and Charleston Salts. You can also enjoy selections from the coasts of Virginia, Massachusetts, and Prince Edward Island, just to name a few.
