The dishes at Hank’s were wonderful. Our group tried several different plates and all were enjoyed. The presentation was phenomenal and our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. The drinks were great too! Hank’s was open and inviting with booth and table seating.

The best restaurant ever! We had reservations on Tuesday night. The oysters on the half shell were shucked perfectly, very clean and tasty. Service was spot on. It was so delicious we returned on Friday night and ate at the community table. Loved it!
