Dining at Hyman's was truly a highlight of my trip to Charleston's. The food was terrific and, surprisingly, reasonable priced. I had my favorite, fried shrimp. My husband had a seafood platter which featured lobster. I was picking off his plate the entire time. We didn't see any desserts that attracted us, so we actually ordered crab dip, an appetizer for dessert.
Almost each table is engraved with the name of famous people that have dined at that particular table. Bob Villa had eaten at my spot. The location is opened on Meeting Street, in the heart of Charleston. We went for supper and we did have to wait about two hours. It was worth it. If you have someone with a disability, make sure you let them know when you check in. I don't believe the second floor is accessible.
The bad thing about this restaurant...they do not take reservations. Try to get there before 6 p.m. if possible. You can always walk around shops downtown while you're waiting for your number. Follow your dinner with a carriage wide and a walk around battery park. Makes for a nice, romantic evening.
