My wife and I absolutely loved the atmosphere, service and food at Hank's Seafood Restaurant. Oysters casino and crab cakes to start were fantastic, the grouper and Seafood a la Wanda entrees were absolutely delicious! Highly recommend Hank's!!

We were a party of 10 on Labor Day weekend, this had to be one of the best seafood restaurant experiences possible. From the wait staff to the incredible food, we were totally spoiled. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We celebrated our anniversary in Charleston this weekend and the meal we had here was the best eating we did all weekend. Luca our server was amazing and made the experience memorable. HIGHLY recommend making a reservation for a table. We ended up just sitting at the community table in the middle which turned out to be great. Met some really cool people. The food was spectacular!! The grouper and seafood a la wando are a must try!!!

This place is crazy busy on weekends. Literally a couple hour wait for a table on Saturday without a reservation. We were just two, so we ate at the bar. Had my first shrimp and grits dinner and it was awesome. Everyone we spoke with enjoyed the food. It's very busy and noisy, but we throughly enjoyed the seafood.

Wonderful experience for great seafood. We started with oysters on the half shell which were excellent. I had the Bouillabaisse and it was fantastic. Everyone in our party had a great meal.
