great southern food, service, and alot of good variety of food. Mr Hyman came out to greet us and you could tell that this restaurant owner was on top of everything. There was no long line at 3:3o afternoon. When I return to the Holy CIty will eat here again.

They don't like you to hang around the restaurant at all! My husband and I were briefly looking at the celebrity pictures on the wall and we were rush to the table and it was the same when we got out. They didn't exactly tell you to hurry up but I got the message...Is it so wrong to stop for... More

We have always enjoyed Hyman's during visits to Charleston. It used to be our favorite.The last few times that we have visited, it hasn't been the same. It's just okay. The food is just okay and service is hit or miss. I'm sure we will continue our traditional seafood meal at Hyman's. the atmosphere and overall experience was much better... More

This family owned restaraunt has good southern seafood. They always have a long line so plan on an hour wait. But it is worth the wait. They are best at fried shrimp, fried green tomatoes and shrimp & grits. Prices are also reasonable.

We love Hyman's as one of our favorite places for seafood, and we always enjoy the experience. Before we even got into the front door someone met us with complimentary hushpuppies. We were seated quickly and our server Marie was fast to get our drink order. She was incredibly friendly and energetic. The food portions are always plentiful, and we... More

You see Hyman's ads as soon as you get off the plane. You almost feel like you have to go there. And you do. Atmosphere is interesting, fish of day written on the chalkboards. Name plates of famous diners on the tables. Service was good and management does seem to truly emphasize customers. We often fly in/out of CHS when... More

First visit to this seafood restaurant. Atmosphere interesting and friendly. Our server, Nicole, was fantastic with our group of 10. Good menu and reasonably priced. My favorite was shrimp and grits! Will definitely return.

We visited the market and were ready for lunch, so we stopped at Hyman's, where they were giving out hush puppy samples. Big menu and portions, and great food. The owner (4th generation!) came over to say hello and make sure we were having a nice time. It's not fancy, but we had a good lunch and enjoyed ourselves.

At times we have been comped some decent appetizers but most of my meals have been sub par. The only reason I ever go there is my guests think it is a must see place.

Both times that I had a lunch stop in Charleston I made sure I ate at Hymans. I'm not a seafood eater but all the other options on the menu are good. I love the hushpuppies and Hymans sauce together!! The best ever!
