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.

    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.
