Our group of five ladies dined 4 nights at highly rated restaurants in Charleston. We had excellent service and wonderful food except at Hanks. Our waiter did not have the southern hospitality as the others, was abrupt and never smiled which set the tone for the entire meal.

The restaurant has been completely renovated since our last trip to Charleston. The service is superb. Our martinis were perfectly made and very cold. A lovely experience on a rainy day.

Loved the look of this restaurant and the food was awesome. The downside is the noise level in the room is quite high if you have hearing issues. It was very busy the night we were there and they were running about 20 minutes late on our reservation and the service was about average. I would definitely try it again.
