Great spot for an evening meal or an appetizer frenzy. The cocktails were excellent and the black eyed peas and greens not to be missed!
Great service and food - recommend the oysters, scallops, crab cakes and wonderful original cocktails
Their 3rd floor was perfect for our group of 6. Just enough fray but could still hear each other talk. Food didn't disappoint.
This is my favorite neighborhood restaurant!
While the food was quite good, I wouldn't say it was a value. For the prices being charged the portion size was rather small.
Another great find in DC. Our waitress was fabulous and the oysters and scallops are the best! We will definitely return to this great little spot.
Great valentines dinner with regular menu. Fantastic fresh & fried oysters, Black Sea bass, ceasar salad, Ipswich clams~ all terrific
Hanks has become a great staple in our dining repertoire. Great service, yummy food and a nice neighborhood vibe.
Hands down my favorite casual restaurant for seafood - THE BEST!
