Reviewed 4 January 2009

On our first night in Charleston we had a wonderful dinner at Hanks. The food could not have been fresher or more delicious and it was not overly prepared. We loved Hanks!!

“Fantastic restaurant”
Reviewed 4 January 2009

We had dinner here one night when we visited Charleston, based on a recommendation from our hotel. We absolutely loved the restaurant, and felt it was reasonably priced. The fish here is very fresh and cooked to perfection. The service was great and the atmosphere of the restaurant was wonderful. Highly recommended if you are in Charleston!

“Take a chance, sit at the long table across from the bar!”
Reviewed 21 October 2008

It was our last evening in Charleston, we were walk-ins - without reservations. Hank's was crowded. The hostess offered us two stools at a long table opposite the bar. What would we get, indifferent service, sitting elbow to elbow with other disapponted customers? No! Everyone at the table of twelve was friendly, offering menu suggestions. Our table-mates included two water treatment engineers, a young couple from Miami and a bit older couple from Toronto The food was excellent, served promptly by our versatile waiter. I enjoyed a Low Country meal, shrimp served over grits with tomatoes and andouille sausage. It was a thoroghly enjoyable evening. Hank's Seafood, a must on any visit to Charleston!

“Good eats”
Reviewed 8 October 2008

We really enjoyed Hank's. The meal was terrific and the service was very good. We had a group of six people and waiter handled us well. The atmosphere is great with white tablecloths and nice banquets.
