We had a great experience dining at Hank's. I choose this restaurant from the positive reviews in Trip Advisor. I enjoyed the Yellow fin Tuna special and my husband loved the Sword fish; we split a Caprese salad. Our waiter, Casey, guided us in our selections which proved to be great. I would definitely make a return visit.

My wife and I had dinner there last week. We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation but were shown to our table immediately. My wife had the shrimp and scallops while I had the grouper. The service and food were excellent. You do sit close together to other diners but that was not an issue. We told our... More

We went on a week night and they were super busy around 6:30. The scallops and shrimp and grouper I got was the best I have ever eaten. My only complaint was the place is a little noisy as it was packed with people. The servers were friendly but not over the top. Price is on par for this type... More

I lived in Charleston half my life and I will forever return to Hank's. My parents go here for every celebration. The food is always perfect, the cocktails and simple and delicious and you MUST get the seafood tower.

Everything was on point. The service was excellent, atmosphere was cool yet sophisticated, and the food was incredible. I went with my girlfriend and another couple and we shared four dishes (grouper, swordfish, salmon, and tuna) that we all loved. We couldn't even pick a favorite. Highly recommend and will be back!

My husband and I have had dinner at Hank's twice and loved both meals. I had shrimp and grits on my first visit - the shrimp were so fresh and the grits were amazing. On my recent visit; I wanted a lighter entree and ordered sautéed flounder served atop a light tomato buerre blanc and topped with a salad of... More

I had the scallops - excellent. But even so the hush puppies were the real stars. Best I have ever had.

Our server Matt greeted us and welcomed us to beautiful Charleston. He recommended some amazing dishes but the grouper was out of this world. I cannot explain how good this dish was on one review. All I can say is: service, food and ambiance = 10/10

Like the restaurant, with a classic old world look and feel. Very nice, natural service style of waiters who know what they are doing without effort. The food is good, but not great. I liked my meal (muscles were nice, lobster was good) and shoestring fries (not listed on the menu?) were hot and traditional. Very nice dining experience but... More
