With a community table flanked by paper-topped private tables, this lively spot hearkens back to an earlier time in Charleston's culinary history. The kitchen reinvents recipes from the famed Henry's, a longtime favorite that used to grace the Market. This upscale fish house serves such Southern adaptations as Lowcountry bouillabaisse and seafood platters that come with sweet-potato fries and coleslaw. The atmosphere retains an authentic vibe under longtime chef Frank McMahon, with waiters in long white aprons buzzing about. With a location just off the Old Market, the sister restaurant to the fancy-pants Peninsula Grill is a noteworthy landmark on dining scene.

The food was mediocre, and the waitstaff made us feel as though we were wasting their time. For the price, I'd expect a better experience.

For a fish restaurant, they don't cook fish very well. None of the fish that my wife and I had was cooked optimally. Hank's did not pass the test of being better than what we could have made at home.

Way to crowded..sitting on top of one another. Food was fine and the service was fine but couldn't wait to get out and breathe.
