Columbys may not be near the ocean, but a new Charleston-based restaurant is arriving downtown to change our waves.

Hank’s Seafood, a 25+ year old restaurant originally from South Carolina, is opening a new location on the corner of High and Gay Streets in downtown this spring. The restaurant is most known for its selection of sustainably sourced seafood, ranging from lump crab to raw oysters.

This new location will feature 17-ft ceilings and plenty of wood paneling to create a warm environment. Guests will be able to see into the kitchen from select seats and watch as cooks quickly shuck oysters for the raw bar. It will also have an outdoor patio which will be near the recently added “Current” display in the area.

Check out the gallery above for renderings of the interior design.
