Hank's Seafood 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.
