And there's a reason for the line. The seafood is good and the service is great. We like to sit at the bar as you get quick service and drinks when you are empty. Bloody Mary's are wonderful. We had "Shrimp Three Ways" appetizer. Let's just say it was enough for a dinner portion and really good. The bar is... More

Absolutely love love love Rusty! It was also so nice to have a member of the family come over to the table for a charming Charleston chat:-)

Tucked in the corner of its large menu is a Glatt Kosher menu that is prepared by the local Chabad of Charleston, SC. Options are salmon, chicken, meat balls, stuffed cabbage and brisket. Meal is sealed in foil container and double wrapped and heated onsite. I had the brisket and it was excellent. Comes with rice and garlic steamed broccoli.... More

Pure, unadulterated seafood. Skip the ambiance if you're really wanting good seafood. Hymans is one of the few places to get really good seafood in the best basic form in the low country. It's fried or broiled. It's just plain good. Service is always good.

If you are a fish lover then this is the place for lunch or dinner. The food is great and the prices are reasonable. Don't miss out on the whole fried flounder or the fisherman's platter. It's a lot of food, so bring your appetite. Share an appetizer and a Caesar's salad as they are too much food for one.... More

Their slogan is that they have the best seafood in town and although we didn't go to all the seafood restaurants, Hyman's is seriously worth visiting. This eatery has been handed down to three generations. The 21st century Mr Hyman came to our table and we enjoyed chatting to him about Malta where we come from. He didn't get many... More

My daughter and I had lunch here and the food was excellent and service was superb. Eli Hyman stopped by our table and gave my daughter a coupon for free ice cream in the general store and for me a free magnet. He was genuinely interested in where we were from and happy to hear that Hymans is a must... More

This is a tourist trap. With that said, no local eats here. They market themselves as the seafood restaurant in Charleston, not so. They have an amazing location by the market, t-shirts, and an alligator appetizer. Everything is frozen, you might as well be at the captain ds. The food is greasy and tasteless. Don't waist your time in line... More

We came across Hyman's seafood because of a coupon someone in our party had. Great choice for dinner. A lot of choices and combinations. My wife and I created our own dish by choosing from the menu options. We were able to sample 7 different items that way. The shrimp and grits were very good. The atmosphere is casual and... More

Our lettuce was slimy, brown….it wasn't fresh…and the She crab soup was mediocre at best..It turns my stomach thinking about it now….service wasn't that great either…the guy saw we hadn't touched our salads, didn't ask us about it, and when we told him, he didn't do anything to fix it. Would not recommend it. Wayyy better places to eat in... More
