Of course when you read all the great reviews the bar is raised. Well without a doubt this is a fine dining experience that should't be missed in Charleston. Celebrating our anniversary we were greeted by all management/owners at our table. The server, Kevin, couldn't have been more professional. Everything we ordered from Ahi Tuna to the Filet was simply outstanding. Topped off by a gracious offer of a couple glasses of champagne and some cheese cake made this a most memorable evening. The Hall family has absolutely set the standard for elegant dining.

What an unbelievable dining experience. Very elegant dining rooms, but not toooooo upscale. Can wear shorts. Food and service outstanding. Our waiter, Stefan, was beyond good. We lacked nothing at any time. Steaks absolutely outstanding. We had fried green tomatoes and oysters rockafellow for appetizers. They were great. Lobster Mac N' Cheese to die for. Will be back if we are ever close to this area.

Warning: Do not go to Hall's Chophouse unless you wish to be treated like royalty! The owner personally greeted us when we came in, the hostess was engaging, and we were waited upon by a whole staff of people. Every course that each of us had was terrific, fine dining. We each had salads, and our steaks were cooked to perfection. I had a rich creamy chocolate dessert and my husband had key lime curd. However, it is the service which really puts this restaurant over the top.
The atmosphere is elegant and classy...right down to the piano player. Not inexpensive, but with the type of atmosphere, food, and service that Hall's has, one would not expect it to be. Would definitely recommend.

went here on saturday night during labor day weekend with group of 11. we had reservations at 630 and the restaurant was already packed. we were seated promptly in kind of a small booth table. the restaurant in general is a little small, kind of reminds me of nyc restaurants.

we started off with some appetizers, oysters rockafeller, oysters on the half shell (prince edward island), lump crab cakes with green tomatoes, crab cakes. my favorites were the crab cakes and green tomatoes. the oysters rockafeller had too much filling and not enough oysters. the oysters on the half shell were ok.

for entrees/sides we got:
3 long bone tomahawk ribeyes, medium, pittsburgh rare
1 seared scallops w/ veggie risotto
lobster mac and cheese
shrimp and grits skillet
pepperjack cream corn skillet
sauteed mushrooms

the ribeyes were excellent, they had a nice char on the outside and were nice and juicy on the inside, seasoning was good. the scallops were seared perfectly and were seasoned well. my favorite sides were the shrimp and grits and the corn skillet. the lobster mac and cheese and mushrooms were ok.

id recommend this place to anyone looking for a good steakhouse in downtwon charleston. total bill was about $80/person after tax/tip.

We were recommended this restaurant for a special occasion and it was fabulous in every detail. The ambience and service were second to none. we had the best steak we have ever eaten . it was delicious and melted in your mouth and the sides were superb. Wine suggested was top class and desert was yummy bread butter which sadly we couldn't finish. This was the best meal of our 3 week stay in the US.
