My wife and adult daughter walked in for Lunch. Great Find. The oysters were delicious. Also, the fish tacos were excellent. We wish we had gone for dinner as well as the quality of the fresh fish was tremendous. Would recommend.

This place was amazing. Everything in the menu was great. I advise that you make a reservation before hand. It gets packed and the wait can be lengthy.

Amen is a fun, upbeat, large restaurant with a competent staff. We had the raw oysters, really good. There seemed to be a nice mix of local customers and visitors. We would definitely go back.
