Hank's has excellent food. The nachos are the best! Excellent service. Kind people. Great atmosphere. I have been to Hank's several times and the food is consistently good.

I enjoyed the homemade bread our server offered with our meal, as well as their sweet potato fries and ribs. Dessert was delicious, service was prompt and attentive, but the main attractions -- brisket and pork -- were too salty for my taste. My husband likes the place, so I'll go back, but I'll only get the ribs.

Husband loved it, I thought it was OK. They make their own bread that they bring out to the table which was nice but tasteless. I got ribs and skirt steak. It was a lot fattier than what I'm used to at Famous Daves. I prefer to support local establishments but didn't find it as tasty. Like I said husband... More

I took my family out for dinner near the Massanutten Resort where we're staying. It was a Friday night and I was surprised that Hank's wasn't too busy. We figured out why pretty quickly. Our waitress seemed to be the only server in the place. The water she gave us tasted like it had to much chlorine, my daughter couldn't... More

A very casual and relaxing evening. Extra special ribs and great craft beers. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the food choices but was especially helpful when advising about the qualities of the local beer choices. Since we were not locals, it was a great help to hear his descriptions. From the outside, Hank's does not appear noteworthy. Step inside... More

The food and band was great, the service was terrible! We went in and sat down, they gave us a menu and disappeared for a good while, we almost got up and left, but wanted to see the band. When they finally came out from the back, another customer had to get their attention and let them know he needed... More

Had lunch with my hubby. As the reviews indicate it was a great experience. He had BBQ and brisket combo and I had rib and pesto chicken combo. All was good. The fries were Crispy and the Mac and cheese creamy. Everything was full of flavor. We have been here before and we will come back while in town. Only... More
