We had a great lunch here with classic southern seafoods. Family friendly for young children. They served boiled peanuts and hush puppies with all meals!

Enjoyed lunch at Hyman's on a weekday. Nice family atmosphere. Started off with a Bloody Mary, which was very good. Had gumbo and a salad, which was also very good. Enjoyed a table visit from one of the members of the Hyman family. Highly recommend.

From the lines that form for this restaurant, we expected it to be fabulous. It was just okay. We sat at the bar to save time. The staff was very nice and attentive. Just can't say that the food was anything but ordinary. Probably wouldn't go back.

The food was good and plentiful but we could have had smaller portions for lunch. A popular place for the famous and well known to come but over hyped.

Hyman's claims to have the best seafood in Charleston. They are right! Not only is the food great but the owner (Eli Hyman) came to the table to welcome us and make sure we were taken care of.

Hymans is very popular so be prepared for a wait. You might even see a tour bus pull up to the curve to unload! It's worth the wait and ours was only about half hour. It's casual dress and be sure to ask for the complimentary boiled peanuts. The fried flounder is always fun and delicious. They have a huge... More

Went to Hyman's for dinner and there was so much food that we had enough for dinner the following night. The meal was excellent and Erik provided top notch service. All in all a great dining experience. We will return the next time we are in Charleston.
