best shrimp po-boy

Went with a family group and everyone really enjoyed it. I ordered a shrimp po-boy and it was fantastic. Best I ever had. Make sure you order it with the cheese and onions. Nice place to eat at and usually crowed.

A MUST go-to restaurant !! You most likely have to wait unless you make reservations in advance. But, either way .. you will be very pleased with the atmosphere and the food. Wait staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The decor is truly unique and entertaining to say the least. Be sure to note the Name Inlays at the table you... More

Found this place over 15 years ago, and still great. My husband declares it the best fried oysters he has ever had (and he has tried a lot). Flounder, shrimp, and the shrimp and grits also excellent. My kids couldn't get enough of the hushpuppies, and the manager even gave them coupons for free ice cream next door. Highly recommended.... More

The seafood is good but it just can't compete with all the great restaurants in Charleston. I like it, didn't love it. Not worth the long lines.

My husband and I were in Charleston on buisiness from Arizona. This place was recommended by a local. If you are in Charleston, YOU MUST come here to eat. These people serve you up with the best South Carolina hospitality and food. We were greeted by every owner and or manager who worked that evening. They all sincerely were happy... More

My kids (teens) have been to Charleston with their cousins many times and can't leave - apparently- until they have a bowl of she-crab soup and hushpuppies at Hyman's. So I know it is a HIT with kids, but didn't get to confirm it for myself yet.

The menu selection is vast! We had a table of 9, some of whom were a tad demanding. Our waiter, Chris (who said he was really Brad Pitt and testing out a movie role) was FANTASTIC. He took great care of us upstairs, answered our annoying questions, and provided extra butter, sour cream, wasabi, soy sauce - all on a... More

We had a great meal here with our 3 children. Our kids all tried the fried green tomatoes and shrimp and grits appetizer. Both were excellent! We all enjoyed our food. They broiled the shrimp for our kids with their kids meals because our kids don't like fried shrimp. The waitress spilled a drink on our son by accident and... More

This is a older establishment that has maintained their quality over many years. Service is top notch. You might expect a wait if you arrive at peak times but it is going to be a worthwhile wait. Our favorite is the "Carolina Delight" which is available both as an appetizer and entree. Our advice is to share the entree. The... More
