We decided on this restaurant on a whim, and after checking TripAdvisor, we knew we had found a winner! It was a fun, fast paced atmosphere on a Friday night. It was clear this was a hot spot to visit while in Charleston, and clear most people who come to Charleston have visited Hyman's at least once. This is a very casual restaurant, but with high quality food. The seafood was fresh, and the various seasonings were spot on with just enough kick. Great staff, fun atmosphere and even better food all mean we will return on our next visit to Charleston!

A must place to dine if you want fresh seafood and a great Bloody Mary!!! I ordered the pan fried flounder ......moist flaky with a fab crunchy crispy crust......huge portion enough to share but after one bite you won't want to share.

We four were seated quickly on a busy Friday night. The food was delicious. We encountered problems with our orders (only 2 of 4 appetizers were delivered simultaneously with entrees; other appetizers never made it). Management took note of the problems and immediately took all steps to make amends for the problems. Enjoyed the food (and ate too much!). This establishment does a very efficient job of minimizing the wait time for patrons to get in and to be served in a timely manner.

We ate hear after reading a bunch of fantastic reviews. Hyman's did not disappoint! I don't eat a lot of seafood so I stuck to chicken but my family ate various fried seafood platters and loved every bite. They're hushpuppies were amazing! If there is a long wait, put your name in and either way outside or head back to your room if you're staying close by because it's well worth it!

Okay most restaurants would be a bit overwhelmed when a crew of hungry forty-seven Seniors show up looking for dinner! Not here, escorted upstairs, promptly seated (Plates in the tabletops indicated who has sat there before - all celebs.) A friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Wait staff was fast, and effeicent. Food came out hot, and plentiful. We loved standing outside watching the "Cookin' Posse" as they prepared meals on the other side of the glass. I can see why they are rated "The Best Seafood in Charleston." We agree!
(Psst: I had the "Grits" in and appetizer - I don't like grits! BUT this was the very best I've ever tried! I'd order this next time!) Everyone was so polite and personable, even the owner came over to our table and chatted for a while. We WILL be back!
