Hyman Seafood

213 Meeting St., Charleston, SC - (843) 723-6000
Posted By Mitzi Cary on 2/5/2004 10:41:00 PM
Having dined at Hyman's several times while vacationing nearby, We enjoy Hyman's very much. It is a great place to run in and grab a delicious Bloody Mary or cold brew before heading to the Market for bargain hunting. My husband is happy to be left at the bar watching the oyster shucker serve him oysters on the half shell while sipping ice cold beer. Hyman's is versatile~ super sandwich, or appetizer on the fly joint and a enjoyable late leisurely dining restaurant. The seafood is the freshest! Service is fast and friendly. Every effort will be made to accomodate your special requests and/or needs. The menu is a long read but worth the time. The Shrimp Creole is a favorite; spicy and made with fresh ingredients. All of the fried seafood we've sampled has been excellently prepared-hot, crisp and not greasy. The broiled or blackened fish is equally well prepared. Pass on the boiled peanuts~cold & bland. Maybe that's why they are free?

Bigger than its plate, this whole fried flounder is a breeze to eat. Those succulent chunks of meat lift off the skeleton with the greatest of ease.

The crispy flounder comes with pepper-hot jelly to garnish the hunks of meat.

A Charleston signature dish, she-crab soup is often spiked with sherry. We didn't taste any booze in this one, but it was loaded with crab meat.

For decades before the Hyman family turned this space into a seafood restaurant, they were known as a wholesale dry goods business. This Hanes ad on the wall goes back to the beginning of the last century.

The building that houses Charleston's immensely popular seafood restaurant has been a Hyman family enterprise for well over a century. The doorway is on the right of the photo.
