This old-fashioned seafood place offers exceptional value, a family-style joint you might expect to find in a small fishing village, with family photos, old plates, and wood planks lining the walls. Plenty of folks come here to order the crispy flounder served with chutney on the side, which is something of a local institution, but the menu also features meaty crab cakes, salmon croquettes, and a vast choice of soups, salads, po-boys, and traditional Southern entrees. Highlights include shrimp and grits, Charleston-style fish and chips (haddock), and the fresh fish of the day—prepared as you like it, or stuffed with crab. Hyman’s was established back in 1890 as a dry goods business (the wrought-iron staircase is original), but became a restaurant in 1986. It’s still owned by the Hyman family.
