If there was an option to give Halls Chophouse a negative star rating, I would do so. I have never experienced such awful service at a restaurant in my life. Seriously. I came to Halls Chophouse with a group of friends while visiting Charleston for a dear friend's 30th Birthday celebration. All of us traveled hours to get to South... More

Hall's was recommended to us by a few friends, so we made a reservation through the concierge at the Wentworth Mansion (a great place to stay). Then I made the mistake of reading some reviews published in a local paper which made me think twice about going. But we did go and are glad we did. We were greeted politely... More

We had an excellent meal at Halls our second night in Charleston. When we arrived, we were greeted with a handshake by one of the Hall family members (I don't recall his name, but it was one of the sons). We took advantage of the restaurant week offering they had, and had a wonderful time consuming our 8 oz filets.... More

The family and staff are warm and welcoming, even though they are often quite packed. Mostly I have eaten off the bar menu and enjoy their nice wine list. It's very popular as a bar and restaurant and it's buzzing! The food is really good here, and their special event lunches are divine.

This restaurant was recommended by another couple at our inn. Four of us went there during Restaurant Week and enjoyed the meal so much that we returned two nights later, on our last night in Charleston. The staff is so professionally competent and the food is obviously first rate. Greatest comment/compliment was that it was the best steak my husband... More

We dined here for a special occasion. The food, romantic & fun atmosphere and service were wonderful. Nice live jazz pianist. Very attentive waitress & the owner's son makes it a point to greet and thank everyone walking through the door. Steak tender, flavorful & cooked just right, wonderful presentation, delicious dessert. Definitely deserving of its top ratings in Charleston.... More

It is a must go when in Charleston. The food, service, and atmosphere is the best in Charleston. Worth the cost. It is lovely whether at bar for drink or for full dinner experience or brunch. Go and enjoy!

A Wonderful Evening Meal. Arrived at the restaurant and were seated immediately (Get a Reservation if you can). We were cordially welcomed by our "Wait Team", two delightful young ladies. Aside from the usual "Have you Dined with us Before" they asked if we were celebrating anything. Which we were. The menu and specials were thoroughly explained. When that was... More
