We had a fabulous meal. Our waiter was so knowledgeable and pleasant to work with. We had made a mistake with our reservation and the hostess was very nice and found us a table. The food was spectacular and we really enjoyed our whole experience.

The lobster roll sandwich is incredible. Fun place to go. Small but happy atmosphere. Usually have to wait but worth it.

Finally made it to Hanks for a pre-show dinner. Our waiter was extremely helpful in getting us out in time, even on a busy Friday night. Tourists can overwhelm this place- noticable by the mix of dress for the higher meal cost/dinner hour. We shared...More

Not really. Most are dressed smart casual which is the suggested, but some were in shorts and t-shirts.
