This is an awesome place to run in and grab a bite to eat or pick up some fresh seafood. The cooks are awesome here!!! Shame they don't have a bigger kitchen and more crew, they could be ruling the lowcountry!
Geronimo is the only reason....
Art & Bob could never get it going.
It's a sad place and the food and ambience relects Bob's personality = bland and uninteresting ........ at best.
Heh, Guess I'll be the only local to chime in on Hymans, and I LIKE the place.
Yes, its touristy, yes its crowded and gimmicky, but I don't know, maybe I'm crazy, but I like going there, its fun to be a silly tourist sometimes.
Plus, I've never had bad service there, never had bad food either, in fact there's a few dishes on that menu that I downright crave (Hello, Cajun Shrimp Pasta, its awesome!)
Is it a fancy night out kind of place? Nah, but its still a fun place to go every once and a while.
Always a great meal at Coast, the interior and outside dining areas are fun and really well done. Its a great place to go with a small group, service is excellent.
Its def. on the high side with prices, but its WELL worth it. I can easily say they have the best Buffalo Shrimp in town.
Love eating here. I always take my family here when they come down to visit from the Upstate. The views are great, it never feels crowded and service is always top notch.
Fav Dinner - Shrimp Scampi Pasta, its amazing!
Loved it! Was a great time, get their early though because the place fills up quick.
If you don't like oysters, the shrimp and fish are awesome as well.
Oysters are great, views are spectacular.
City Paper needs to re-review the Acme - now that it has an expanded menu (way beyond Mexican- lots more seafood options grilled and with your choice of finishing options like basil aoli, lemon beurre blanc), phenom specials ($19.99 Lobster Night on Thurs - 3 split tails & two sides!) and a new name - Acme Lowcountry Cantina.
We made a reservation for thanksgiving(party of 4). Wanted to seat us with two elderly people outside without heaters. When we asked for seating inside we got skipped by multiple parties of 2&4. No thought or flexibility. Then we get seated at two 4-tops crammed together with someone needing to sit on the crack. Overall food was what we expected, traditional holiday items were good. Oysters were old and dried out. Cheese and salad station was bargain average. Our waiter was attentive and did a good job. The hostess and her three minions gave us the eye the whole time. If we thought that we could have gone somewhere else to get turkey we would have.
Watch your card...witness the vanishing waiter!....We waited with our empty plates and glasses for over 45 minutes. Finally we walked up to the bar where four employees gathered to talk instead of noticing we no longer had a waiter. I asked them where our waiter was...their response "ugh I dunno I just got here"....I left a crappy tip...I should not have left one at all. Three days later they put a larger tip on my credit card!....tis a shame the food was good..perhaps one day they will find people who want to work.
Great view and appetizers if you have tourists visiting and want to show them a good time. Service is great, but food is just so-so. Go for drinks and a good time, but not for the food.
Finally had friendly service. Food is always awesome! Service isn't always so friendly, but food is so great we keep coming back. The shrimp and grits and steak and cake are to die for. Service isn't very friendly, so we keep saying we aren't going back, but the food always lures us when we have family in town. We had a new server, Sandy, who made us feel extremely welcome and at home. Maybe they're becoming the old "at home" Shem Creek Bar and Grill again.
TERRIBLE SERVICE. They ran out of shrimp. Took an hour to get service, took two hours to get food. The portions were tiny, we all left hungry and paid $50 for 3 people. They werent even that busy. If you want to have a good evening, don't come to this place and ruin your night.
oh yeah--- top rating.
LOVED,LOVED LOVED Hank's!!! Once we ate there-- we were HOME for the remainder of the week. and, the Community table was a great option. Very delicious food, great service, tasteful, yet un-stuffy atmosphere. We will BE THERE next visit to Charleston.
This place is basically a Captain D's on Shem Creek, except for the fact that Captain D's has much better food and service...and AC!
Inspired by today's article, I thought I should add my 2 cents. I couldn't care any less about the paper plates, the lack of AC, or the difficulty in finding the joint. In fact, I love a good dive! The problem here is that the food is terrible and way overpriced for what you are getting. I went two weeks ago with a party of 10 and not a single person enjoyed their meal. The fried seafood was soggy and tasted like old grease. Not appealing at all. The "grilled" seafood was even worse. Covered in something that I couldn't identify, it had a harsh, burnt taste. I hate to be so brutal, but this was probably the worst meal I've ever eaten in Charleston.
My new favorite fish place........spectacular! yum!!!
I found the decor the one thing that looked great.... a bit contrived (since it was built just a few years ago I found out.... made to look old). The service was OK not what you would expect from a pricy restaurant like this, I am a stickler for good AND attentive wait-staff. The food was mediocre.... we went to Hyman's Seafood the day after and found all the things we lacked at Hank's.... fantastic service, great food, HUGE variety for a fraction of the price at Hank's. After having tried Hyman's I will stick with them when it comes to local seafood!
I have followed Ronnie for years and he just gets better. Buddy Roe's is his best venue yet. Great music, great food and great FUN!
