We’ve visited Hank’s probably 6 times. Each visit never disappoints. Enjoyed another over the top seafood dinner. I had the sautéed flounder and my husband had the #1 Combo, grouper and shrimp. Both were equally terrific. Can’t wait to visit again soon!

Quite casual, but smart and neat. I was wearing shorts and a polo shirt and did not feel out of place at all.
