Food was great..service was grest..but I couldn't really have a conversation with my husband because it was so loud.
Our first time to Charleston, and to Hank's. The whole experience was outstanding. Our food and our server were excellent. There was a large party close to us, which was VERY LOUD. That was unfortunate but not Hank's fault. We would return without hesitation.
Service was excellent. The food was great. Went back another night just for the pecan pie and drinks!! Won’t regret eating here!! Be back again.
Great personnel. Food/fish was extremely fresh and plate was amazingly presented. Would order crab soup again. They made you feel most welcomed and not rushed.
Noise was from a neighboring customer who spoke and laughed for our area of the restaurant’s enjoyment.
It was our anniversary and it was difficult to enjoy because our table was AWFUL. We were so close to the other diners that I could hear every word they said. I could not however hear anything the waiter or my husband said because it was so loud. This was our second try and we hated our table the last time too. At least the food was fine and our service was good.
I really thought there was no way this dining experience could live up to the hype. Reality is, it blew my proverbial socks off! The service was impeccable by every single employee. They were professional & warm. Our waiter was so helpful in helping us make great choices and we ended up with the perfect amount of food. Best vacation meal experience to date!
This was Hanks at its best great service and great food
We try to get a reservation at Hank's each time we visit Charleston. Can't always, but this time we did. Food is outstanding, our waiter was the best. You can't get a bad meal at Hank's. We highly recommend.
Food was great
Food for excellent, from appetizers to main courses and desert. Service was also professional and prompt on what was a very busy night. Everyone had a great time as we celebrated a birthday.
Very fine service and food but too crowded and noisey especially for older clientele. However, I can't think how to remedy that. Hopefully, you can. Thankyou.
I had sautéed Grouper with beurre blanc sauce and pimento grits on side. Starter was the lump crab cocktail. The whole meal was just superb. One of the best. Great job Hank’s!!!!
Excellent service and the food was incredible. We took our kids and went on the earlier side and it worked perfect.
Was amazing as usual, waiter was attentive but not overbearing. Can’t wait to go back
Great service. After being in business for so long they are still on point!
Food was good and well prepared but not memorable. The sauce on the seafood a la wando is extremely rich, to the point where I couldn’t eat much. The fish in the dish was dry but the scallops were perfectly cooked. My husband had the scallops which were also cooked perfectly but bland. My kids enjoyed the steak and swordfish. The Pinot noir by the glass was terrible. Overall very expensive. There are many better dining options in Charleston at this price point.
Hank’s Seafood is our favorite restaurant in Charleston. There is a reason this restaurant is always full, because of the food and the staff. Keep up the good work and we will see you again. We had the salad special topped with crab wontons, the grouper and risotto and the broiled seafood platter. Unbelievable!
A large open restaurant a little bit loud. Delicious, fresh seafood with very attentive staff. Boullaise was delicious!
Hank's is our favorite place in Charleston. They exemplify customer service and execute their dishes masterfully. While dishes can be on the pricier side, the quality and quantity make it worth the cost. I highly recommend the mussels appetizer and seafood a la wando.
Hanks is always consistent in its quality. The service was particularly outstanding from our waiter, Casey. I enjoyed my seafood dish with a light, creamy sherry sauce that reminded me of she crab soup. The chocolate fluff mud dessert was delicious!!
Left my Cc there. Got little help finding a.
Very pleasing ambiance, delicious food, great drinks and very good service by Jessica.
This was our third trip to Hank’s. Every visit was excellent. We were seated promptly. The service and food were very good. We will definitely keep coming back.
Amazing food and great service. You will need to make a reservation early for the best time. We went at 5:00 pm. Pricey but worth it!
I was alone, reserved a regular table
Never feel strange about eating alone at Hank’s
Luca (Luka?) my server was great.
My late husband and I came to Charleston 2-3 times a year for many years and most always ate at Hank’s EVERY night, with few exceptions.
Everyone raved about the seafood. Dinners were spectacular. Took my girlfriend family and all were enjoying their meal
I have eaten at Hank’s many times and I have always thought the food was good. However, the meal I had on this occasion was exceptional. The flavors blended together beautifully and the portion was sized perfectly.
Unfortunately we weren't able to try the seafood platter that we had hoped to order. When we arrived the power had been out for 5 minutes (several blocks in the neighborhood were also impacted). We were seated and waited on by a delightful server who apologized and explained that no hot foods could be prepared. So we ordered peel and eat shrimp (delicious and big) and 2 beers hoping that the power would soon be back on. It wasn't - so we each ordered the heart of Romaine salad, which was delicious. Still no power so we topped it off with dessert - a slice of pecan pie and a slice of key lime pie. Mmm. And then the lights came on... Disappointed not to have had a seafood platter but it was still delicious and a bit of an adventure.
Absolutely excellent food! Luca was a fantastic server. Classy place....noisy and lively. 🙂
Had a great meal! Only complaint was our sautéed spinach side was a little bland/under seasoned. But both our tuna dishes were spot on as was the oyster sampler. Would definitely recommend!
FABULOUS! It was about a 20 minute wait even with reservations but the wait was so worth it. Great service- very personable and attentive wait staff. Beautiful presented meal and it was delicious!
The food is amazing! But the overall clanking and noise level kept me from hearing my husband just across the table from me!
Fried chicken was great as was the grouper. However, server inattentive. My napkin was dirty upon seating and I had to ask twice for it to be replaced because he forgot to bring me a new one. My iced tea was never refilled until the meal was over and not once were we checked on during the meal. Least impressive meal of the trip service wise.
Great experience and food, especially the shrimp and grits.
Always a Winner and truly represents Low Country Cuisine!
Great place for a nice dinner. Food was perfect, service outstanding. Unpretentious ambience. Highly recommend the seafood!
Excellent food. Creative recipes. Nice ambiance. Lucca was an excellent waiter
Very exceptional seafood restaurant. Great service. The entire dining experience was tops.
As usual, the chef out did himself! Wonderful dinner!!
Great experience as always.. would suggest smaller servings as some of us can’t eat all the food served.
