  • The lobster bisque. The lobster bisque. The lobster bisque. Do we need to say it again?
  • Order a plate of half shells from the blackboard. Then, have the bartender pull you anything from Allagash (a brewer in Maine). and suck those little guys down with some horseradish and Tabasco.
  • Tucked into a quiet corner of the busy Dupont Circle neighborhood, Hank's Oyster Bar is a local standby for its fresh seafood and laid-back atmosphere. [Eater 38 Member]
  • Come and visit with Steve, the snarky bartender on Sunday evenings.
  • "Hank's is a reliable, casual place to stop in for oysters and clams on the half shell, lobster rolls, popcorn shrimp and calamari, and crab cakes cooked on a griddle." on TripExpert
  • $1 oysters at happy hour, what more do you want?
  • Beloved DC oyster bar ordered closed w/ health violations: no hot water, unclean kitchen areas, others. @wusa9. Passed reinspection/reopened.
  • Oysters are tasty
  • Best brunch in the city
  • Happy hour prices have increased a bit compared to 2014: drinks for $5 and oysters for $1.25/each. Anyway, oysters are more than awesome, and Chesapeake are the best here!
  • Very nice ripe peare margarita!!!!
  • You MUST try the mac & cheese. Golden bubbly goodness.
  • Oyster Shooters can't be beat.
  • I would strongly recommend The oysters from british Columbia and Virginia, in addition to the delicious small grilled octopus, fried oysters and the lobster roll!
  • Anchovies on the Caesar salad!
  • Oysters should obviously be the first thing on your to-try list - especially chef Jamie Leeds own varietal of oyster, the Hayden's Reef. Try the lobster rolls, po' boys, and crab cakes too..
  • Enjoying the new "Lounge" and the Bar Snacks.
  • Oysters.bloody mary shrimp. Everything is good
  • For all that is well and good, get the crabcakes. They're freaking amazing.
  • Get the meaty Rockland oysters, Mac and cheesy, Collard greens. All very good.
