After hearing about Hyman's, we decided to walk there from our hotel. There is no lobby for waiting. They have someone standing outside taking names. Even though it was about 5:30 on a Sunday afternoon, we were told there was a 20 minute wait and to go shop in the gift store while we waited. We were only in the... More

Haven't dined here in 15 years due to distance. That experience was entirely awesome in the storied sense of Hyman's - good enough to insure a return visit if I ever came through Charleston. Unfortunately, our second coming wasn't as laudable. What Hyman's got right: - Friendly wait staff - Attentive owners if they know you as a regular (not... More

I enjoyed Hymans. I was told by a local that no one goes there, but I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner. And the service and ambiance were spot on. Try their special shrimp and grits!

My husband wanted to try it- I read a lot of reviews with complaints so I was skeptical. Service terrific- hush puppies were hot, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. I ordered crab cakes. A lot of lump crabmeat inside. Perhaps some people had an off day but our experience was lovely.

Visited on a Sunday afternoon...casual and quirky atmosphere. Good food and friendly service with reasonable prices. Ordered fish and chips and a large chicken salad and the food was the right temperature and served quickly. Would visit again.

Three old friends decided to have dinner here after sightseeing and shopping all day. Although we had no reservation, we managed to get a table without waiting, and were taken upstairs into a very large informal dining room. It was quite noisy and busy and we received excellent service from start to finish of our dining experience. The food was... More

Every time we come to Charleston, we eat at Hymans and the food is always delicious. This time, we only stopped in for appetizers, but we were again delighted with our choices. The oil is fresh, which makes a huge difference in how fresh their hush puppies and calamari taste. We also got the crab dip with crackers and it... More

We just visited Charleston and visited Hyman's Seafood for lunch. We had some amazing service from Clifton and the food was sublime. Be sure to get the broiled crab cakes and the hush puppies. We will be back.

The best seafood in Charleston was made even better thanks to Clifford. As our waiter, he made our group of 20 visiting from Atlanta feel most welcome. I will come back again for great food and great service.

We ate here and we were not disappointed. They gave us plenty of food and were impressed with the staff and setting. We did not have to wait on a table we just walked in and sat down. Great food!
