2nd Time the Charm

After going to Halls several years ago and coming away very disappointed, finally decided to give it a second chance, WOW, am I glad we did. Not only was the service impeccable from the moment we arrived, the food was awesome as well. A must do restaurant in Charleston, can't wait to go back again.

We visited Halls Chophouse while doing a foodie tour of Charleston. We shared the fillet mignon, lobster mac & cheese, and truffle fries. Halls is known for their stellar beef and lamb selections. Using only the best available. This hands down was the best filet mignon we ever enjoyed. The sides were also delicious. The ambience was exceptional and there... More

I made reservations to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was the two of us along with six other friends. EVERYTHING about our dining experience was upscale. Did I say EVERYTHING? We are still talking about the delicious food we received and have been recommending this place to many. Yes, it's a 4 diamond establishment and worth every one. In fact,... More

We went on a Sunday for my mother's birthday. I called ahead for reservations and let them know it was her birthday. We got to sit at a little table just above where they were playing music. We love the old gospel songs so it was great to be able to hear them sing and play. The food was delicious.... More

This is one of the finest steak houses my wife and I have dined at. We went on a Monday night and the place was packed. Despite that we were immediately greeted warmly by one of the owners and seated at once. Our server Kasonda was outstanding and engaged in conversation with us minus the usual bland greeting. The meal... More

I have traveled to Charleston at least 20 times over the past 30 years and I always make sure to eat at least one meal at Halls. The food is outstanding and the service is exceptional.

I was in Charleston on business and someone recommended Halls. I'm so glad I went. I sat at the very crowded bar and immediately was included in conversations going on around me. There is a special bar menu, but you can also order off the full menu when dining at the bar. The burrata salad was to die for, and... More

Absolutely phenomenal! Had dinner there just last night. The weather was rainy and dreary, and would you believe that Billy (one of the owners) was at the front door, greeting guests, with towels in his hands for us! I can honestly say I have never been to a restaurant that is so amazingly hospitable (and we eat out A LOT).... More

Halls Chophouse lives up to its reputation and reviews! From the moment I walked through the door, smiling host staff greeted me, and welcomed me to the restaurant. I was meeting a group (and arrived late). Our party of five was served by Darryl, who was outstanding! Most (maybe all) of us ordered based on his recommendations, and he did... More
