Hanks Oyster Bar: A Fan Favorite for Fresh Seafood

September 13, 2016 4:17 pm

Calling all seafood lovers! Hank’s Oyster Bar, helmed by chef Jamie Leed, has been praised by some of the most esteemed food publications, including Gourmet, Bon Appétit, and Food and Wine magazine, for its fresh coastal cuisine. Hank’s is not your average local seafood shop; it’s a Southern experience you’ll want to have time and time again.

Try local favorites like the griddled crabcakes, garlic steamed oysters, the oyster po’boy, and seared sea scallops with cauliflower fondue. There are also delicious options for landlubbers, like the popular lamb and blue cheese burger. Pair your finger-licking seafood fare with a refreshing hand-crafted cocktail, a perfectly paired glass of wine, or a cold beer from the rotating craft list.

Check out the website for the full menu and to see upcoming events like Hank’s on the Hill Oyster Fest, where you can enjoy all-you-can-eat fresh oysters, fried oysters, barbecue oysters, and more!
