There are many excellent restaurants in Charleston. However, our best dining experience was at Hyman's seafood. The friendly service and varied menu can't be beat. The owner comes over to chat and make sure everything is good. In addition to seafood, they offer a selection of glatt kosher prepared food for those who may need it. There's often a line... More

The line at Hyman's is often out the door - fortunately not when we visited. It's a tourist stop complete with photos of celebs who've dined there adorning the walls. Also a family owned business and they clearly take pride in their business. Wait staff was friendly and welcoming. Lots of seafood choices. I had the Carolina Delight which is... More

We tried their Carolina Delight shrimp and grits appetizer and it was very flavorful and good (and I'm not a huge grits fan). We each tried the Build Your Own Platters and they were great (I had the clam strips and deviled crab and my husband had the shrimp and fish of the day). The staff was super friendly and... More

Great! Food was fresh, well prepared, people were friendly (one of the owners was making the rounds of the tables on. Friday afternoon) and certainly no complaints on the table service. The bloody Marys were some of the best I've had and that includes New Orleans' best efforts. Hush puppies were heaven, cod was good - all of the food... More

The food and service make Hyman's a real treat to eat and enjoy terror seafood. The hostesses who seat you couldn't be more friendly and the waiter, Austin, was very helpful with good suggestions. We loved the atmosphere with its photos of celebrities who have eaten there. We enjoyed the tasty hush puppies and the drinks were reasonable priced. I... More

A friend of ours recommended this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised, both by the service and the wonderful selection of seafood at a reasonable price. Our waiter, Clifton, was top-notch and saw to it that everything was perfect, including the complimentary fried green tomatoes and a bowl of hush puppies for all of us to try. We had 6... More

Amazing seafood and unique atmosphere. It is pretty casual and comfortable. Service was great. I would probably go for lunch instead of dinner next time.
