Great

Great food and atmosphere super friendly staff. The best Hush Puppies I have ever had. The only reason for not 5 stars is because on the way out in their general store they were selling sweet grass baskets made in Asia instead of the local made ones from local artisans.

I go to this place a few times a year. Since we are local and visit downtown Charleston a lot this is the place to go if we want to eat good seafood. The prices are good and the service is excellent. We never had a bad experience there. Been to this place 20 times or more.

We had delicious meals and an amazing waitress, Carissa, who helped me decide from the wonderful menu of choices! Good sized portions, great wait staff, everyone so accommodating- right to the visit from the owner! The memorabilia was so fun to read about...

I had the salmon and cheese grits. Salmon was tender and flavorful and the cheesy grits were the best I've eaten in a long time. The hushpuppies are also wonderful!

We got shrimp and grits and a salmon sampler and were incredibly pleased with both dishes. HUGE portions and the food was absolutely delicious. Would definitely go there again and again. It has been visited by many famous people and it is very cool to see all the photos up of those people. Great place.

I ordered sea food combo deal on recommendation of the server. The food is not tasty at all. Waste of time and money.

We had to wait in line for what seemed like and eternity. But while we waited, some members of staff came out with hushpuppies for everybody to try waiting in line to try. We got in and the atmosphere was incredible, the food was glorious and the staff and Mr Hyman himself were incredibly friendly and professional.

Their advertisements say they were voted the "best " seafood restaurant in Charleston. My question is, By Whom? Food tastes frozen, place isn't attractive inside. So many better choices in this town

We had a wonderful experience on Tuesday night. The service was excellent and the food was great. I highly recommend having a trio platter to try various items on the menu.
