Hours: Lunch, Dinner, & Late Night.
Located on the corner of East Bay Street in the heart of the tourist-center action, Amen Street Fish & Raw Bar serves up fresh, sustainable seafood in a historic yet stylish space. Exposed brick walls and amazing oyster shell chandeliers give the place a sleek look without all the cheesy tourist flair. The seafaring menu reveals Lowcountry classics like shrimp and grits, she-crab soup, and bowls of pirlau. Chef Adam Miller, an Art Institute of Charleston grad who formerly worked as sous chef at Stars Rooftop Bar and Grill Room, brings his love of local ingredients and sustainable seafood to the table to create fresh, modern dishes like fried flounder with Geechie Boy grits, stewed tomatoes, and St. Jude’s combahee clams. Stop by the raw bar for a fresh selection of oysters from the day’s suppliers. In the colder months, you might find bivalves from New Jersey, Massachusetts, and South Carolina — feel free to sample one of each. Paired with one of the many wines on tap, it’s the perfect way to start a night. —Eric Doksa Dish (Summer 2015)
