Excellent food, consistent, efficient and polite service. Lively atmosphere, without being too noisy to talk. Highly recommend Hank's Oyster Bar.
Very nice evening at hanks.
Thanks for a great date night.
Best ceviche, lobster rolls and creative cocktails! Yum!
Great recommendations from our server- my brother and I really enjoyed the raw bar and our meals (shrimp po-boy & lobster roll) with our potato fingerlings cooked in duck fat sides!Delicious!
Hank's menu is a seafood lover's delight, and the food is fresh, well-prepared and attentively served. Best lobster bisque in the area -- ample portion, not too creamy, plenty of lobster chunks!
Great waiter! Great services very! Delicious food!
My son and I were visiting my sister in Alexandria. We love Hank’s. Had lunch there also (at the bar). We like the ambiance at the bar better than the back room tables but...the food and service are so good, we don’t really care! Definitely recommend the raw and fried oysters! The Bloody Mary at lunch was also top notch.
Food and drinks where good but way over priced and portions were small. I will not be recommending this and will not be going back!
Just love the Hanks family of restaurants ! Though I usually get the “sort of pricey” lobster roll I switched to the clam bellies. Alas for a belly lover the clams in New England must eat a little heartier than their southern friends:) The fried chicken special Was a hit. The friendly team was welcoming! Can’t wait for Hank and Mitzi’s to open up!
Always delicious...and always amazing service!
First time visiting. Extremely satisfied with the service. Top notch host along with great selections of food.
Food and service,as usual,was excellent; however, a very noisy group next to us diminished the experience. Not Hank’s fault...
Pricey oysters but good delectation and nicely prepared. Rest of it was meh.
Seriously not sure how we've lived in the area for 3 years and never been to Hank's! By far our new favorite place. The food was amazing - we don't want to eat anywhere else!!
Excellent food. Their scallops are some of the best I've had.
First let me say that I love Hanks. In previous visits I experienced stellar service, amazing food and great overall experience. This visit was different. We were greeted by a hostess who took our names for the reservation and to wait just a minute while they found us a table. Another hostess appeared and took us to a two top that was smashed in between a divider wall and a group of very loud customers. The tables were so close it was claustrophobic. We asked to be moved to a table with more room and were give attitude, but were allowed to move. Our server arrived shortly after and told us about specials, and took our drink order. He was fantastic all during the meal. The oysters were amazing as usual. So was the salad, lobster and surf and turf we ordered. However, If you go, do not order the lobster bisque. It was too tomato forward. More like tomato soup with lobster thrown in. In a word, horrible. Not creamy and no flavor other than tomato. Mixed drinks were fantastic.
Overall it was a good meal and the waiter was on point.
Excellent lobster bisque. Can't recommend it enough. Rockfish good, and had a nice Sancerre wine. Service prompt, but didn't harass us. Parking lot behind the restaurant is only $5. My two dinner companions liked their meals. Nice evening.
Food was amazing and tasty! Everything was delivered beyond expectations.. especially, the Seafood Grill entree.
Good food as always. A bit cramped as usual. El
I've been here many times and was looking forward to a plate of usually delicious fried oysters. Sadly, this time Hank's missed. Oysters were mostly batter with minuscule amounts of oyster itself and then over-fried too boot. If this is new normal at Hank's I might have to drop it off my list of go-to places in old town.
This was a nice treat as we were able to share 3 small plates between the two of us to sample the various seafood available on the menu. The only challenge we had was the very limited room on the table top so timing is key here!!
Would do the again just to taste more of their offerings.
Made a reservation, were seated right away, had a friendly waiter, food was really good, would definitely recommend and will definitely come again.
Whenever I’m in Alexandria, I plan my trip around Hank’s - and sitting by the window is like watching puppies on parade!
You can’t go wrong at Hank’s!!! Delicious clam chowder and wonderful fish sandwich. It’s all good!!
Excellent food and good drinks.
Because we had had a late lunch and, knowing of Hank's ample portion size, we shared the large oyster platter by just adding another side. It was just right. As always, the oysters were perfectly prepared and delicious. This visit, we tried two new (to us) sides, the green beans and the duck fat roasted potatoes. Both were excellent and we will certainly order them again. We already knew we liked the cole slaw since it is not overwhelmed by mayonaisse. In conclusion, we will continue to look forward to our visits to Hank's.
Seafood was average, prices were high and the place was small!
Saturday night dinner, in search of oysters. The oysters were wonderful (sample of a dozen from 4 locations). The other food was also very good (fried clams, drunken ceviche, green beans). Our waitress was friendly and efficient, as were the other staff members we spoke with. The only thing keeping me from giving 5 stars overall was the wait for our table (a 7:30 reservation, seated at 7:50.) I understand delays are sometimes unavoidable -- my issue is that is really nowhere to stand while you wait. The bar was packed and we all lined up along the wall behind the bar patrons, creating a giant traffic jam.
Wait staff outstanding! Food excellent! Such a good experience we came back the next day! GREAT, GREAT, GREAT!
Nice spot for happy hour, lunch or dinner and great service. A reservation is highly recommended.
Hanks bouibase was wonderful as usual.we go there once a month
We go to Hank’s every time we are in Alexandria. It’s yummy! Great food and service! And a fun happy hour.
Best crab cakes around! The food is consistently delicious.
Great food and service!
All was excellent except an obnoxious , drunk guy behind us that was talking and cussing loudly. Fortunately, he and his party left midway through our meal. Otherwise. great meal, great service and we will return!
A fun vibrant restaurant with helpful, friendly staff - and delicious oysters and seafood dishes. Highly recommend!
