Hyman's Seafood is the worst restaurant in the Southeast. It is a tourist trap that prides itself on having a line out the door; which is probably because management closes 75 to 90 percent of the restaurant in order to create this illusion of grandeur. The food is crap, the service crappier, and the thought of even going back makes me sick to my stomach. With all that said Hyman's Seafood = Shit Food, Shit Service, and a Shittier Experience. Sorry for my french; but it's hard to get ones opinion out when there is no option for negative stars.
Living in Louisiana for most of my life I thought I had enjoyed the best seafood but after dining at Amen and having the seafood platter now I know I've had the best seafood.The shrimp, hush puppies,creamed corn,oysters, and flounder is excellent....
I had the pleasure of dining at Lazo's on Tuesday of this week, and am about to go back today. Some of the many parts of a great meal at a restaurant include the ingredients, the preparation, the service, and the atmosphere. So, the ingredients can't be beat at Lazo's. I had shrimp and grits for breakfast--organic shrimp produced by the restaurant's own team, on the best hominy I've ever had. I could eat this every day for a month. Then put together so well, cooked just right. Delivered with love for the customer to a table outdoors under the most amazing blue sky with the sounds of surf, birds, and happy Folly Beach revelers. This meal was elegant in all these respects, yet in a totally casual, typically Folly Beach kinda place. (My wife and two young sons enjoyed theirs as much as I did!)
WTF is up with this place (last 2 comments)
The owner and the management of this establishment completely disrespected a large group of my friends when they went there yesterday to have some drink later in the evening. The managers said to them: Your 'kind' is disrupting Mount Pleasant and the only reason you are in this country is because my father fought in the war. This was one of many comments made to my friends (the group consisted of varying cultures of young people who just wanted to have a good time) before RUDELY kicking them out. Comments were made about gays being in allowed in the military and so forth. When I went there again to file a complaint, the owner told me to GET OUT NOW after finding out what my complaint was about. They threatened to call the COPS on me because I was inquiring about their rude and disrespectful behavior. I was not hostile and didnt come there to discuss anything or prove a point, I just wanted to talk to the manager. The male GM basically made me back out of there while continuing to threaten me and then verbally assualted me outside with random comments that completely were unneccesarry. This place is a dump in general and this just makes it intolerable. Please do not go eat there and give them your money because they obviously have no respect for people...who are all well educated and contributors to this economy in many great ways. Majority of them are either in the Air Force or work for the federal government...so how is it that WE DO NOT BELONG THERE??????
Wife & I were terribly disappointed during a recent visit. Dim sum arrived cold and kind of rubbery. Salad and and fish entree were extremely salty. We won't go back.
No stars, just a comment. I just get the feeling that ACME is run like it's more a hobby than a business. It's a bike ride for me so I'll be back. If I had to get in a car, I wouldn't be back. I'll just manage my expectations a little better.
Great place for a sunset dinner. Better in the off season, but that goes for most places in the chs area. Have dinner then head upstairs for a drink and take in the sunset. Food was good and service great.
Fish is one of the very fine restaurants in the Upper King Design District. Master French Chef Nico Romo's preparation and presentation are second to none in Charleston. The ambiance of the recently re-decorated restaurant and bar is elegant and sophisticated and the wine selections are appropriate, affordable and described in detail by the wait staff.
WOW! Recently went to Acme on a Thursday night, had no idea they served all you can eat crab legs. Figured for 19.99, why not? I was really surprised. The snow crab legs they served were GIANTS! Not the little tiny legs you get at most restaurants like Red Lobster and Joe's Crab Shack. I could easily crack these with my hands and the entire section of meat came right out. Did not even need the little fork. Service was good, prices were good, only had water to drink. I will be going back, no questions asked.
I doubt that Bowens Island takes reservations.
We love this place so much. Robert and his crew really make you feel right at home with his southern charm. The food is the best and the atmosphere ....well you have to see it to believe it! Be sure to make a reservation and don't miss the opportunity to dine like the "locals"...
Yeah, and be sure to mention the arrival of a new chef by name.
I love how it's painfully obvious that the restaurant had a meeting and asked everyone to write a good review. Either that or they asked some regular customers to do so. The place doesn't get but a small handful of reviews in a year and all of a sudden 5 star reviews abound within a matter of days.
The food and service at Fish are excellent. I really enjoy sitting at the bar with a few friends and enjoying their dim sum. I also enjoy "the mercy of the chef" which is offered on Tuesdays for $25. It is three courses created by the chef for you. I have had it twice now and both times have been very happy.
The cabana bar is a great place for enjoying a cold beer or nice glass of wine. I really enjoy the atmosphere, the staff, and the food. They have recently started half-priced appetizers during happy hour which allows me to get my favorites like mussels, crab bruschetta, and oysters without breaking the bank.
Absolutely the best raw oysters anywhere! I love PEARLZ! My mouth is watering just thinking about the food! Can't wait till my next visit.
Four words: soft-shell crab sandwich.
We give Hyman's a solid three. Had dinner there twice last weekend even after hearing y'all run the place down. OK it's an overmarketed tourist trap with a deceptively central location, OK our upstairs table hadn't been cleaned before we were shown to it once (but they were repeatedly apologetic about it), OK the "rare" seared tuna was overdone, OK the ubiquitous boiled peanuts get cold too quickly, OK there are too many duplicate photos of celebs on the walls, OK I can see how one would tire of taking out-of-town visitors there. But what they do is done well; they mix a mean dry Manhattan; and my wife, a big fan of shrimp and/or crab grits, pronounced the Carolina Delight the best such dish she's ever had. Twice. So lay off 'em a little, y'all hear?
