I truly love scallops and understand that they are not easy to make. But must I pay more than $25 to get 4 scallops. It seems at Hank's Oyster Bar, each scallop costs at least $5. So when you order the scallops, gently ask how many you are getting for the dinner price. And just to be a savvy customer... More

They had a good selection of oysters. Their mixed cocktails were unique and delicious. They have a happy hour that ends at 1900. The waitress was fun and helpful as well.

We spent 90 dollars on two seafood meals and 2 beers. It was delicious but I would classify this as a three Dollar sign restaurant. I would do it again. Also, this is not really a great place to take kids.

I came here for late-night oyster happy hour (10 PM to closing) and loved it! Each east cost oyster is only $1 and you can choose from the available fresh selection. At my time of visit, the choices were Blue Point, Sweet Jesus, and something else (I forgot the third one because I liked the other two the best). I... More

We called ahead and the hostess put our name on the wait list so when we arrived there was no wait. The food was great! I had the lemon fried olive appetizer (you have to try it!) and the fried oysters plate with french fries and cole slaw. My husband had a Caesar salad and the swordfish. Everything was fresh... More

This is a good neighbourhood for food and Hank's is one of the top places. They have a selection of Oyster's. We tried a couple of varieties which were really good. They could have been prepped a little better as a couple had small shell pieces inside. My wife had mussels which looked and tasted amazing. They're served with lots... More

We came into the bar to wait for our dinner reservation at Little Serow. The food looked great, but we came in for the drinks. The bartender was wonderful. We had a couple of rounds of well concocted cocktails. I had one with grapefruit juice and nutmeg which everyone loved (even the grapefruit haters). They hibiscus juice cocktail was also... More
