We went right when they opened and there was no wait. The service was excellent and patient with a toddler. We had a variety of choices and were very pleased. The crab cakes were some of the best food I have ever eaten.

Group of four had a great time at Hyman's in late June. I read some of the recent complainers and I strongly disagree with them. We went on a weekday, early evening, so I don't know about prime time waits, but we got in within 15 minutes. The staff was friendly and worked as a team. And the food--every bit... More

Being from the Midwest, I don't get much of an opportunity for fresh seafood. Hyman's was a great stop. The restaurant was clean and had a great family friendly atmosphere. The shrimp were huge and tasted great!!

We found ourselves outside Hyman's at about 7 p.m., and since we'd read a review suggesting that it was a Charleston landmark, and since there was no queue outside, in we went. It had a typical American faux-rustic panelled interior, the walls lined with photographs of people who, we supposed, had eaten there (we were right by Anthony Hopkins, curiously... More

Had to wait 30 min to be seated, worth the wait. Portions are huge and food was very good. Managers passed by all tables to make sure everything was just right. Very friendly atmosphere, good service and good food , all in one place.

As a local, I am blessed to live in a city that has a great food scene with restaurants that excel in their culinary specialty. Unfortunately, Hyman's is not one of them. There are SO many more restaurants in Charleston that have better seafood and better service than Hyman's. My last meal at Hyman's was the Shrimp and Grits. As... More

Mỹ wife and I are on a long retirement vacation from Arizona. One of our stops we decided on was Charleston SC. Before we go to a restaurant we never heard about we always check the reviews. We both love seafood so we check Hyman Seafood restaurant. And everyone raved about it so that is where we decided to have... More

This place is good if you like fried seafood but not worth the wait. I had eaten here in the past and tried again tonight, Tuesday, at 8pm. I was told by the snippy girls that stand out on the street that it would be "about 30 minutes". After about 45 minutes, I asked again about the current status of... More

Don't leave Charleston without visiting Hyman's Seafood Restaurant! Absolutely the best seafood I've ever had. The only Charleston restaurant I've ever recommended. Great food and a great staff. Five stars all around!

The HYMANS have been at the same location for over 112 years starting out as a Wholesale dry goods store then changing to HYMANS SEAFOOD in 1987. The HYMANS commitment to guaranteed customer satisfaction is the reason that HYMANS SEAFOOD is now a Charleston landmark.
