A lovely restaurant with great service. Everything we four ordered was delicious. Lump crab cakes, seared tuna, grouper, catfish. You won't go wrong.

If you are fortunate to enjoy a wonderful dinner at Hank's Seafood - I highly recommend the Shrimp & Grits. They are in a tomato-based sauce that is truly delicious. They make our top 10 list for best dinner entrees. We also had the tomato and crab bisque. So yummy and smooth. The Roast Grouper with goat-cheese risotto was delicious. Hope you will order all of these as they are yummy.

Arrived late and we were able to get a table.

Nice drink from the bar followed by she crab soup and steamed clams. Husband enjoyed soup!. Clams were prepared with a nice combination of flavors and diced tomato. The broth was not over powering with garlic and I wanted to use every dinner roll to soak up the deliciousness.

Shrimp and Grits were yummy. You can't go wrong with this dish. Spot on great. Went a la carte with grouper and spinach. Again spot on. The grouper tasted awesome without sauce.

So happy we were able to get a table. Will be back!

We enjoyed eating here. I had the seafood platter - seafood was fresh and cooked to perfection. The staff were friendly and efficient.

Great and interesting food; service wonderful. Given Charleston's parking issues - there is close parking at Bank of America garage and an open parking lot next door.
