The staff at the hotel told us don't miss Hank's and she was right. Get reservations because it's busy but worth the wait. Shrimp and the best sweet potato fries ever!

We were delighted to get a reservation on a Sat.night as this is a very popular restaurant and we could see why as the food and service were top notch. The she-crab soup was smooth and yummy with just the right amount of fresh crab. Several in our party had #5 seafood platter with grouper, shrimp and scallops. You could... More

My husband and I absolutely adored our dinner here. We would without question return. We ordered the Grouper on a bed of mushroom risotto. It was divine! It is a meal we will remember for some time. Our waiter was attentive, helpful and friendly. Our only complaint is that the seating is very close to your neighbor. Of all of... More

Definitely our most expensive meal in Charleston. We showed up as they were opening for the day. The lady at the door asked us if we had reservations - the place was empty - we did not, she did small snort, looked down her nose at us and gave us more than a bit of attitude. Not used to getting... More

Hanks is a fairly upscale seafood restaurant in a very booming area of Charleston. The food was good but not great. The price was fair for what you received and the service was excellent.

Nice dinner! Pricey! (Small portioned salad with greens and a few strawberries $14) Fresh seafood. Busy and active atmosphere. Not sure I'll return. But maybe? Waiter was efficient, a bit aloof (or guarded) which altered the experience somewhat.
