Fodor's Review

A lively spot with a popular bar and a community table flanked by paper-topped private tables, Hank's is an upscale fish house serving such Southern adaptations as Lowcountry bouillabaisse. Seafood platters come with sweet-potato fries and coleslaw. The atmosphere retains an authentic bistro air under longtime chef Frank McMahon, with waiters in long white aprons buzzing about. It's super-popular with the thirtysomething crowd and those who live inland and want the freshest

seafood. With a location just off the Old Market, the sister restaurant to the fancy-pants Peninsula Grill is a noteworthy landmark on Charleston's dining scene.

Unexceptional

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.

Not ready for prime time

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.

Too uncomfortable to return

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.

SIMPLY SUPER SEAFOOD

when told we had to wait till 10pm for a resv we decided to eat at the bar..they also have a community table if you don't want to wait...barmaid was friendly and knew her wines. She agreed wth us and replaced one of our two bottles with something else...the entree's, crab cakes and oysters casino were excellent and the broiled seafood dinners were as well. Fun and friendly people at the bar, great food and service...great oysters ( we're almost

regulars at Acguagrill in NYC with their 25+ varieties...Hanks doesn't have that many different oysters..but to quote Spencer Tracy..."What they have is cherce (choice)!
