I sat at the bar. Service was extremely prompt and friendly. While I was choosing what to eat, I had a glass of wine. They had little bowls of fish crackers that they kept full. Nice touch in a seafood place. I had calamari and shrimp. The food was good, but I would have preferred to have it side by... 更多
Fresh oysters and incredible baked mac n cheese. Also nice local beer. Everything was so fresh and tasty. Plan ahead if going there for dinner, it gets busy.
On a recent visit we sampled a selection of raw oysters from WA and VA. They were all very good. For our entrees we enjoyed the Ribeye Steak with chimichurri sauce, the grilled seafood platter (shrimp, calamari and octopus) and the Swordfish special. All were excellent and enjoyable.
Just discovered this place during last trip to Old Town. Fun time lounging at the oyster bar and sampling oysters with a fine glass of vino. Great oyster selections, especially the one that's only available at Hanks. Lobster soup was tasty as well. The "Lobster Roll" order next to me looked fantastic & there were "yummy sounds" overheard with each... 更多
Looking for fresh oysters in Old Town Alexandria, VA? We found Hank's and were so glad we did! After a craft beer and a sampler of east coast oysters, with recommendations from our server, we enjoyed the oyster po boy and Ipswich fried clams...unbelievably tasty! And, we splurged for dessert when we saw they had key lime pie and chocolate... 更多
Fantastic food, service and location. Great alternative to the Capitol Hill location to avoid parking problems and traffic. These folks know oysters (duh). Order a dozen and they give you a mix of 4 different kinds of oysters.
Sunday lunch, nice crowd but not crowded. We got the table "in the window" to watch the world go by. I reluctantly tried the Basil Mimosa...it was wonderful! Jim had the oyster Po'boy and I had the lobster bisque (large chunks of lobster) and "small plate" of fried oysters. Wondeful oysters. A small dish of goldfish crackers were served as... 更多
Ate there tonight solo and sat at the bar. Lucked out on the game on the two flat panels, as it was slow at 8:30. Oysters need two things, super fresh, check, expertly opened, not so good as there was shell in 3 out of eight. I had the lobster roll. OK I am spoiled to ones in Maine and... 更多
My son and I were on vacation and on a family recommendation ate at Hank's. We arrived around 8:00 on a Sunday and we did not have to wait. Service started out slow but once our order was taken, everything came quick. My son ordered an oyster poboy and I ordered a small plate of calamari and shrimp with a... 更多
This restaurant makes delicious food other than oysters! My fiancé and I had dinner there. They do not do reservations, but will put your name down 30 minutes prior to arrival. We highly recommend you utilize this courtesy, as this place is super busy! I ordered the kale & cabbage salad with dried cherries and it was incredible. The dressing... 更多
I've been to Hank's for brunch twice, and both times were great! No reservations/ call ahead either time, and no wait to be sat. Bloody Mary's are the best part about brunch and Hank's doesn't disappoint. They have a choice of a few different kinds, but I can only speak for the pepper vodka Bloody and it's a winner. The... 更多
Decided to go for oysters a week ago, late on a Saturday afternoon. Hubby ordered raw oysters, and I got the fried.. we also each ordered the "small plate" of steamed shrimp, thinking that there would maybe be 6 shrimp each. Needless to say, both plates were overflowing with shrimp, and between them and the oysters, there was too much... 更多
This is a very small, classy place. Order the oysters off the blackboard. They offer them raw on the half shell or fried. There were six varieties when we visited. I had the lobster roll and brussel sprouts. The lobster roll came on a grilled hoagie bun with very little mayo on the roll. Very tasty and well prepared. The... 更多
