The atmosphere at Hank's is incomparable, you can enjoy a delicious dinner or spend a pleasant evening in the bar, drinking a margarita, a martini or a devastating hurricane while listening to jazz music.

Nice Brunch -- like dining at Brennan's in New Orleans

Well maybe not exactly like Brennan's but the eggs benedict were tasty and it was a very nice Sunday brunch in a nice setting near the main square in town. You will not be disappointed and we would return.

This is a lovely atmospheric little bar and restaurant just off the main square. We were looking for a light lunch and I had a really tasty tuna sandwich - made with real tuna, not the tinned variety. It was cooked exactly as I like tuna. My husband had a great pastrami sandwich. In fact we enjoyed our lunch here... More

Have been going there for happy hour, lunch and dinner since day they opened 12 years ago. I was born and raised in New Orleans and this restaurant has fantastic menu items from which to choose. Bob Theiman, owner, has Mardi Gras celebration every year. I was the very first Queen and 10 years later, was queen again. Party goes... More

The New Orleans style restaurant has a few nice items, including the ribs and the jambalaya. For the most part it is average.

My daughter and I had dinner there last night and came away with a decidedly mixed opinion. First, the positives: nice atmosphere, great music on the stereo - mostly American rock oldies - but not too loud, excellent service, excellent martini. Unfortunately, the food does not live up to the hype. The Cajun popcorn shrimp was bland and semi-soggy, certainly... More

Oysters Rockerfeller are definitely one of my favorite appetizers...and Hanks has the best!! I love the atmosphere here and it is definitely a place that I would return to... They call it an oyster bar for a reason...I would stick to the specialties that each restaurant is famous for and am sure their New Orleans fare would be worth a... More

The Barman Alonso was completely dishonest. Started offering a 2 x 1 promotion and offered a friend of mine a courtesy drink for her birthday, when the bill came he charged all drinks. I had to tell him to stop serving drinks as he was just bringing them without us asking and saying they were “from the house”. We order... More

Steak was tender however totally swimming in a sauce which left the meat tasteless. Ieberg blue cheese salad spoiled by some sort of vinegar. I felt seriously overpriced for what it was
