Fantastic Food and Service to Match!

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... read 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

The fillet with the oscar crab topping was out standing. The service was excellent. Halls Chophouse deserves it's number 1 rating among the Charleston restaurants.

Perfect all the way through! Had drinks at the bar awaiting our reserved time. We were escorted to the table at the appropriate time. The service was exceptional. The staff was very knowledgable. The atmosphere is ideal.

My friend and I came for Sunday Gospel brunch, as it was an easy walk from the Francis Marion hotel and also because we figured if Hall's was decent at dinner, the brunch might also be good. Excellent service. Crisp white table cloths. People dressed in their Sunday best. Gospel music in the background. I felt embarrassed because I was... More

Look I am going to go against the grain here. If you want a crowded and pricey steakhouse this is the place. I have had 2 meals here and both of them have been marginal from a steakhouse stand point. Yes it hip, its chic but I was not blown away. Nothing stood out.

Everything we had was top notch. Oysters Rockerfellar, chopped salad, okra, lobster Mac, caramel cake with banana foster ohhh and the steak was to die for. Melt in your mouth delicious. It was my husbands birthday and they treated us like royalty.

The service here sets this place apart from all of the other fine dining establishments in Charleston! We were treated like royalty from the time we entered until the time we left. I wanted to order everything on the menu because it all sounded so good. I ordered a bone-in filet that was very tender and tasty, and my husband... More
