Very nice restaurant with great choices and service. Seafood mondo, shrimp and grits, oyster stew and she crab soup made for a culinary feast. And banana cream pie...heaven!

Two couples, three of us had seafood platter and one had buttermilk fried chicken. Nice atmosphere, great food. Ask for Casey, great waiter, light sense of humor.

Loved the old-school atmosphere and the professional waiters. The menu offered delicious seafood and other entree choices. It was also reasonably priced for a restaurant of this caliber.

Our hotel recommended this restaurant as the best seafood in the city. It was very good, but not fantastic. The prices were very high for the food.

This was my 4th visit to Hanks and it was amazing yet again. We managed to arrive for the first night of Softshell crab this season and it was the best I've ever had!

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
