Beautiful and congratulations! I can't think of a better story that got its stat, at least in part,at the Renaissance School!:)
"In this regime, there are no real principles, only power and the repression of anyone vulnerable enough to repress."
This Baltimore carpetbagger must have been smoking a lot of the cannabis he speaks of for the last 8 years to miss all the wiretapping of private citizens, forced health insurance mandates and unauthorized global killings of American citizens that the Obama administration was engaged in.
CCP how long until you give a South Carolinian an editorial job that you farm out to Northeast hacks?
every man has a price.... not values
I love Hyman's and so does my family! We have celebrated births, birthdays, anniversaries, and engagements there for the last almost 20 years, and will continue to go for as long as we can. The food is truly indicative to what we Charlestonians are, down home cooking done in an southern fashion and flair, clean and modest, and the epitome of seafood in the south. Mind you, the sandwiches are too huge to mention and taste absolutely wonderful! The best sweet tea around, absolutely amazing Bloody Mary's for brunch and hush puppies that will shut your mouth. They now offer our own FireFly Distillery concoctions and the Blackberry Moonshine Margherita is my absolute favorite!! Let the hater's hate, they're always going to have to about something, but for those of us that LOVE our southern ways and seafood, Hyman's is the place to go to get the best Seafood any way you want it, Cold sweet tea for a hot day, and a lovely view of our favorite market streets!! To me Hyman's is already " Institutional Status"!!
Brad & family: So sorry for your loss. All of you are in our thoughts & prayers. Tom & Teresea Whaley
We lost a great person. My mind can't even comprehend this. Life to short. Drew was such am awesome human being. I worked side by side with this man at Carolinas and he always had a big smile on his face.
Prayers for the family, friends and co-workers that are left in loss and confusion. There will be a time where love reunites...
"Fried piggie ears" LOL
I am so glad that lawmakers are taking my porn-induced blindness, and hairy palm syndrome seriously. Mom always said it could happen, but I never believed her.
Glad it got caught. And, I will stop using the term deplorable since it is a sensitive term now. I wasn't insinuating that Trump supporters are thieves, so I apologize to everyone - not just the "offended".
I stopped ordering sandwiches at Hyman's because they would always wrap the pickle with the fries, making the pickle hot and the fries pickley... No matter how many times I complained, it kept happening.
As a tour guide, I tell people that Charleston has so many great restaurants, that if they ask you to wait in line, they're too busy for your business. If you catch Hyman's with a short wait, fine - it's decent enough, but nothing special. If they want you to wait half an hour (not uncommon), there are many much better places to eat within a short walk.
I'm willing to grant Hyman's "Institutional Status" as a Charleston landmark, but nothing there ever made me feel like I had to go back.
I have visited Charleston including Hyman's. I did so on recommendation of a relative. I however will say that people need to make their own judgements on anything. I was not disappointed. I do not think I have heard people say they got sick or it was terrible. People are going and returning. I had seafood else where in Charleston too. I think Charleston as a whole is a tourist trap if you want to start judging. I had a great time in the area. I say go for it and experience the food and atmosphere and just enjoy life. You will pay money and get food in your belly.
Sometimes I just want to eat fried shrimp and scallops with collards. I want to eat it in a place that is clean, has good service and seems to appreciate my presence. Hyman's is that (and more on the menu). My husband refuses to eat at the "tourist trap", so when I go, I must go with others. I am never disappointed. Unfortunately, when my husband picks where we go, that he deems is "Not a tourist trap" and has "good seafood", I always seem to leave annoyed by bad service, disappointed by poor quality food or both. I am always annoyed by the bill. Hyman's is great. I think Charlestonians biggest problem with Hyman's is it's unabashed marketing. The stickers, the stuff on the walls, the exit through the gift shop. They prefer a snobbish demeanor.
Heterosexual males , from early, want to have children and get married. It is innate. It is obeying the first great commandment to "Increase and Multiply." That some do not get married , some get children but do not get married, some marry and do not get children and some get do not get married and do not get children does not mean that they are gay.
I call BS.South Carolina has no way of executing its more than 30 death row inmates?The perfect solution is in their own thinking.South Carolina lawmakers have now filed a resolution to declare pornography as a public health hazard and weed is so dangerous that SC would become a death trap,there you have it.Lock them up and take them out with weed and porn!!.By South Carolina lawmakers ideas, they would not last but a few days on death row!!!
Does this mean our legislators feel that porn has damaged them?
I've been going to Hyman's since they first opened. They've seldom failed to please my guests & me. My late FIL loved their whole flounder. The only item on their menu I won't eat is tilapia. I don't eat tilapia anywhere, though.
Hyman's gets an A+ rating from me for their good food & even better staff.
Hyman's is what it is...Not expensive...OK food....Lack of really caring by the line cooks is obvious...Butter won't melt on a baked potato! Yikes...Volume is their thing...We know that...It is a 5 on a scale of 10...don't expect much and you won't be comparing to others that want to gouge your wallet...
I've gone to Hymans several times through out the years, mostly with guests from out of town. I like to show it off as a reasonably priced local seafood restaurant; where the food and service is always great. There are lots of great seafood restaurants in downtown Charleston, but most are pricy. Hymans is a great value, has it's own ambiance (so does Bowens Island) and I've always found the food very good. Eli is making it an institution.
List most people I know, I've only known of Hyman's as a tourist Trap. And as such, in 20 years in Charleston I've never eaten there. And I don't know that I recall ever hearing from anyone I know about the food. But...after reading this article I am doing to try it sooner or later and I'll report back.
