“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

My wife and I enjoyed a few appetizers here on August 2nd. We had the chicken wings, smoked olives and tomatoes, salmon salad on greens, apple pie and creme brule. They have a rotating menu of craft beer, which we sampled and also a lovely bottle of wine with our meal. Service was excellent and we spoke with the owners, which we appreciated. The restaurant was recommended by a local, and by 7pm the place was filling up. We were able to decipher the bill, but it is unusual to not see an itemized list.; titles were either "T1" or "T2"

“Simple but good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014 via mobile

Deservedly building a reputation for well prepared simple food. Tried the pulled pork and pulled lamb. Both served with baked beans (very spicy, but tasty) and potato salad. Had puddings of apple pie, and blueberry short cake. Both very tasty. Well worth a visit, a cut above any diner!

“Delicious and Down to Earth”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Loved the relaxed atmosphere of Hank's. The Seared Tuna Salad was delicious. Seared to perfection. The dressing on the salad extremely flavourful and complementary. Found the Beef Ribs tasty but a little tough. Baked beans and potato salad very tasty indeed. The Raspberry Shortcake finished off the meal beautifully. All in all, the food and atmosphere was great!

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

Went to Hanks after an all day Kayaking course, pretty much starving. Got a seat right away,the restaurant filled up immediately after we arrive. We ordered an appetizer to share; clams and oysters in a very good sauce, clams are not one of my preferred shell fish, however have to say these made me a fan. Following I had a smoked beef steak, which came with a potato salad and baked beans...looked at it at first and thought hmmm, a bit sceptical, all was eaten with much pleasure, the beans were probably the best baked beans I've eaten, and the potato salad wasn't the standard potato salad, light dressing, with a hint of lemon. The steak was served with a really nice barbecue sauce on it that didn't cover up the smoked flavour of the meat. My friend had the smoked beef ribs and thoroughly enjoyed his as well, again served with the beans and salad. Came starving, and left satisfied. Service was casual and friendly. I would definitely go to Hanks again if I were in the area.
