One of Charleston's most iconic restaurants, Hyman's has suffered from the curse of popularity. Lines for dinner can stretch halfway down the block; lunch can be nearly as bad, especially when tour groups come through. Still, the old gal's got a lot of atmosphere and is one of the Historic District's more family-friendly establishments. When your name is finally called, you'll be led to a table in one of sprawling Hyman's wood-paneled dining rooms. The vast menu ranges from fried seafood to...more fried seafood, with the occasional broiled, steamed or pan-seared item thrown in for good measure. Always start with the she-crab soup, a Charleston favorite.
