I tried out this restaurant because of its reputation. I am allergic to shellfish, so my options tend to be limited. I ordered the Salmon Croquet. It was okay. The portions are healthy, and my server was great. I cannot say I was overly impressed, but I enjoyed my meal overall.

We called ahead that day so we didn't have to wait at all, we were intrigued by the pictures of celebrities that had been there and then we got sat and literally saw our server 3 times the entire time. We saw the guy who walks around more. But, besides that it was great

No words to describe how yummy the food is at Hyman's ... We went 4 times during our recent visit to Charleston. Crab cakes were outstanding. The tilapia with caribbean jerk season was melt in your mouth good. Delicious hush puppies and cajun mayo, as well as yummy sides. Shrimp and grits --- crazy good! The recommended appetizer ended up... More

After reading other reviews, I expected to be blown away. I wasn't. Hyman's is my kind of place. It's older, quirky and has gobs of character. The staff was overwhelmed and the kitchen seemed a bit out of sync. Our food was good, but certainly not up to the hype. Except for the hush puppies which were absolutely the finest... More

We recently visited Charleston to celebrate our 40th. Anniversary. Every person I knew from Roanoke said that it was a "Must" to eat at Hyman's Seafood. We had just finished a carriage ride, and were walking on Meeting Street, when a fellow with A Hynan's T-Shirt came up with a platter of hushpuppies. This was our first Hyman's experience. The...

We use the "free appetizer" Or $5 off coupon from the Traveler when we visit. Order endless bowls of boiled peanuts! (Well, as many as we can before all the food comes out!) Love the fried flounder and lobster bisque. The food is always fresh and tasty. This time round, ordered the dozen raw oysters - clean and just fabulous!... More

Hymans is one of my best restaurants in Charleston. The seafood if fresh and the service is always great. I would recommend Hymans to anyone. A truly great dining experience.

Hyman's is a mainstay around Charleston, but you best go early because even with the expansion, this place has a wait almost daily. You can shop while you wait, but don't skip it. The food is exceptional!
