My husband and I are in Charleston for Christmas, and made reservation for an early dinner at Halls Chophouse. We have never been more satisfied, thrilled or impressed by owner, staff, service and food! We were greeted at the door by the owner and staff. They shook our hands and welcomed us to Halls Chophouse. We were seated immediately, and... More

The food was good and reasonably priced, but the experience was less that it should have been due to being seated next to a noisy wait station and being served by overly familiar wait staff. I don't like being called "Sweetie" and having my shoulder kneaded while discussing the menu. I am accustomed to the fate of the single diner... More

Sure the customer service seems wonderful to start, yet superficial at best in the end. I expected an amazing steak and dinner, however that simply wasn't the case. Both the Mac & Cheese and steak were lukewarm when they arrived to our table. In comparison the steak I had at the Charleston Grill just a few weeks prior was far... More

On a rainy windy night we entered Halls Chophouse. From the first moment we entered I would have to say we were so impressed. A very warm greeting from the hostess. We sat at the bar to wait for our table(we were early). We were then seated earlier than our reservation but we didn't really care for our table. The... More

If you read my other reviews, you know I've eaten in restaurants from Maui to Stockholm to Agadir and I love great food. But this place is truly something special. It's not just the food, although it is flawless in every way. It's not the ambience, which is lovely and includes great live music and décor. I believe it is... More

I rarely give the best restaurant title to a steakhouse but this place is amazing. The food is out of this world good and the atmosphere is great as well from the extremely friendly owners to the live music you can't go wrong here.

My wife and I had a delightful and special evening dining here. Starting with welcoming greetings from the owning family through friendly servers service was delightful. Live music stoked the romance. Food was excellent and a bottle of Caymus from the cellar made for a positively perfect time. Not an inexpensive meal but one worth remembering and repeating.

Dry aged beef, expensive but very tender and tasty. Large portions are all ala carte. The vegetables and sides were excellent. Soft music and good drinks.
