A really good restaurant. Everything we had was superb.
Also very, very good. Enjoyed it all!
First of all, Hank's never disappoints! It's on the "must do" list for a trip to Charleston. I highly recommend the oysters, shrimp & grits, and any special feature. This trip, I had the triggerfish special and it was amazing!
My grouper was a bit under cooked but overall the meal was very good, particularly the steamed clams
Fantastic seafood meals and great service. We thoroughly
enjoyed and will recommend.
We visit this local favorite every trip to Charleston we get! Food is always fabulous and the customer service is always outstanding! Definitely recommend if you are in town for some great food and friendly service!
Outstanding food and service. She crab soup some of the best I've ever eaten.
Great food and service
I enjoyed Hank’s atmosphere and down to earth feeling of fine dining.
Great service, incredible food as always. Highly recommend.
Hanks was great. We haven’t been in a few years even though it’s close to home. We both agreed we need to come back more often.
Delicious food, great atmosphere, terrific service! We will definitely visit Hank's again.
Hank’s was the place to have seafood in Charleston. Over the last few dining experiences, it has been increasingly disappointing. The mussels were so fishy I couldn’t eat them. The staple dishes aren’t as good either. Hoping things will turn around back to the way the food was once undeniably the best - anywhere.
Great atmosphere, excellent service. Disappointed with average and overpriced food. Swordfish was dry. Broiled plater was just average at best with very small fish portions. Scallops were larger than the fish portions.
Our party of 3 had wonderful meals at Han k's. My husband and I both ordered Seafood LaWando (I think that's how you spell it?) and it was delicious! Our friend had a broiled seafood dish and was very happy with it. All fish was tasty, fresh, and well-prepared. The service was great too.
The waitstaff is very attentive. Everyone at our table enjoyed our meals. The quality has been consistent over the years.
We loved our dinner at Hank’s...excellent menu choices...great wait staff...loved the ambience...we will be back when we are in Charleston. Thanks for the memories!
The food and service was great.
Excellent food service in a bustling environment
Our second trip within 4 months
Service and food was awesome. Very crowded and a couple large groups which made it a bit loud.
Hank's used to be one of my seafood favorites. It has gone downhill. Fish was not carefully prepared. some dishes were overcooked with bland glutinous sauce. Sauteed scallops were tasteless, served with spinach that had not been properly drained, so scallops sat in water. Desserts were mediocre. A sad decline.
Food is always delicious...wait staff is excellent!
Kaylee was our server and was knowledgeable and experienced. Great night out for dinner and cocktails.
Hank's Seafood is a Charleston favorite for anyone who loves seafood. I had a couple who were in Charleston and had not dined at some of the great restaurants so I took them to my favorite. It being restaurant week we each had the three course special and all three dinners were terrific. The service was excellent and we had a wonderful bottle of wine that - as expected - was reasonably priced. Definitely recommend Hank's to everyone.
Went during Restaurant Week - very good menu selection for a special 3-course meal.
The reason this restaurant has been voted best seafood restaurant in Charleston for the past 18 years in a row is because it deserves it. A absolute must try when in town.
Lovely evening celebrating an anniversary. Food was excellent, our server was extremely helpful when we found ourselves stuck between two entrees.
Hanks is a nice little place near the market, we enjoyed our meal but were disappointed that the food was not he special. Going in for Charleston Restaurant week we will squally receive a new item or special but between the shrimp and grits and buttermilk chicken nothing was more than mediocre.
The service was great and we did not have any issues but just hoped for more from this prominent venue.
You never can go wrong with Hank’s. Food, service always top notch. One of my favorite spots in Charleston.
We always have a great time at Hank’s
Hank’s is consistently fantastic. We visit Charleston just to eat here.
Other than the noise level and closely placed tables, our experience was good. The food and the service by Jameson was excellent!
Hanks never disappoints! Great choice again for restaurant week. Our first time guest really enjoyed themselves.
Great food and service. Overall, a fantastic experience!!
The server was annoyed that we did not pay the bill quickly after she brought the check-- she rushed us.
In an expensive restaurant this is not a good policy. The cuisine was good.
First time at Hanks on a recommendation from friends. Was worth the visit. We had 3 appetizers and a couple of glasses of wine. The oysters were outstanding as was the tuna tartare. The lump crabcake was excellent. The entree’s were a bit pricey for our budget. Maybe on our next visit. Overall, would highly recommend Hank’s.
We had broiled grouper and Mahi Mahi. They were delicious on their bed of flavorful grains. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. This is a must restaurant for seafood lovers.
Very good food. Great service. A little loud and a little pricey, especially alcohol.
All five of us really enjoyed our meal, with one friend saying it was the best food she had ever eaten!
Quality service and quality seafood. Server recommended crab cakes for a starter, and they were full of crab with seasoning that enhanced, not overpowered, the flavor. Entrees were shrimp and grits and grouper. We would recommend both—again, the fresh flavors of the seafood were enhanced by the preparation.
