Hyman's is one place we love to visit whenever we are in Charleston. Not only is the food wonderful, but the service has always been top notch! I mentioned to my husband at lunch there yesterday that I got twice as much shrimp for the...More

It's Hyman's. Mass produced seafood for the masses wandering by on Meeting Street. It's OK but it's FAR from Charleston's BEST seafood.

Great food, but a little pricey if you are on a budget! They also serve alcohol. They are family friendly. Although be sure to wait for a table around supper time! Wait time can be extremely long! They do have a small gift shop.

This place was so much fun. The food was great, the staff was great, each of their tables has a celebrity name. It had the vibe of a Durkin Park in Boston.

I visit every time I come to Charleston and am never disappointed. The food is excellent and every member of the staff is extremely attentive. There is often a wait but well worth it. Make reservations if you can, but not necessary.

There is always a wait to dine here. But, fortunately it goes by quickly. There is a cool bar to wait, and fun inspirational cards to entertain everyone in your party!
