Hank’s is smaller restaurant, but it delivers with service and really good food. Since it is a seafood restaurant, you know the price points are going to be higher. $30 for a lobster roll and tea isn’t an everyday meal expense a lot of people...More

Our party of six did very well at this restaurant-oysters were the star of our dinner, but there were many other choices. Good beer and wine selection, with great service and festive atmosphere.

We had a late lunch. We shared a dozer oysters, I had a lobster roll, my wife had two side dishes, no entree. Two glasses of wine. Our bill was over $100. Hanks is a good restaurant, but the prices are astronomical. So, be prepared.

Yes it is. I am unaware of any day Hank's is closed except possibly on Christmas or Thanksgiving Days. They could be open then as well! Friday night will be busy but it's worth the wait!
