Some places know how to do it. A remarkable number have no clue. Hank’s makes it look easy: polite hostesses, great service, food cooked just right. Not sure how to improve on this.

Best shrimp and grits. The key is the tomato gravy. Best fried shrimp. Perfect lightly coated batter. We were very happy with our dinner, appetizers, drinks and desserts. Start to finish. Staff was attentive across the board. Five stars earned.

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