Hank's & The Wreck

Hank's & The Wreck
December 2010

At the helm of this turn-of-the-century warehouse renovated to replicate a classic 1940s Charleston fish house, chef Frank McMahon presents an array of fruits de mer, ranging from pristine iced oysters and shellfish to perfectly rendered she-crab soup, highly praised house specialties to platters of fried seafood unequaled on the peninsula. 10 Hayne St., (843) 723-3474,

DOWN-HOME: the wreck
At this former bait locker on Shem Creek, the menu for the house special—a combo of fried shrimp, scallops, oysters, and fish of the day with sides—warns:  “SORRY!!!! This is a very special platter. No broiled, grilled, nor substitutes.” But don’t worry, you’ll want it just like it is. 106 Haddrell St., Mount Pleasant, (843) 884-0052,
