My husband and I visit Hank's every time we come to Charleston! The food and service are wonderful! We usually sit at the bar and eat dinner because it's a great place to talk with people. This visit we sat at the Community Table. We had a wonderful fun couple sit down across from us. It was one of the... More

My sister and I visited Hanks at 10 Hayne St. in Charleston to eat dinner. This is an upper-scale restaurant which opens at 5:00 p.m. The food here is excellent. My sister ordered the Roasted Salmon in mustard horseradish vinaigrette with roasted potatoes, asparagus and grape tomatoes. They did not have her usual wine, so the waiter thoughtfully suggest one,... More

Our group of five ladies dined 4 nights at highly rated restaurants in Charleston. We had excellent service and wonderful food except at Hanks. Our waiter did not have the southern hospitality as the others, was abrupt and never smiled which set the tone for the entire meal.

The restaurant has been completely renovated since our last trip to Charleston. The service is superb. Our martinis were perfectly made and very cold. A lovely experience on a rainy day.

Loved the look of this restaurant and the food was awesome. The downside is the noise level in the room is quite high if you have hearing issues. It was very busy the night we were there and they were running about 20 minutes late on our reservation and the service was about average. I would definitely try it again.

We dined here after an afternoon taking in the sights of downtown. We have eaten at several other seafood restaurants downtown and decided we wanted a change. This was an excellent choice. The waitress was attentive and service was great. The food was delicious and very well prepared . This isn't your typical "deep fried seafood restaurant" but a lot... More

I loved this place. it reminds me of seafood restaurants in Europe - lively, busy but not at all stuffy. We had great cocktails at the bar followed by wonderful food. The service was excellent - attentive but not pushy.

Went with a group of 20 people, we were offered a diverse but limited 3 course meal by our host. The food was great and the place was packed. Service was friendly, could have used an extra server. But generally the service was good. I had the broiled sea food platter - Grouper was moist and fresh as were the... More
