  • "This was one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten. The owner met us at the front door and set the tone. He welcomed us with open arms which in turn his staff did the same. He and other staff members thanked us for coming to their restaurant. You don't hear that every day."

  • "Thank you, thank you, thank you to Billy Hall and all of the staff at Hall's Chophouse. My husband and I went to celebrate my 50th birthday and had a wonderful evening. It started with Billy warmly greeting us at the door. Many owners of restaurants do this but he seems very genuine and truly invested in making sure his customers have a great evening. Our server Melinda was also fantastic. The entire staff was like a perfectly choreographed show. The customer service, food, hospitality, ambiance and everything was all top notch. It is by far one of our favorite restaurants ever. Billy gave us each a glass of champagne and a dessert that we shared for my birthday. I ordered a caramel cake that was divine. Can't wait to return!"

The pacing of the meal was just right. Never felt rushed . The food was OUTSTANDING! Steaks were prepared exactly as ordered. Sides were phenominal. I think one of the owners served our Mac and Cheese!! Dessert was also outstanding. Unbelievable attention to detail! Not to be missed when in Charleston!"

  • "We tried to have dinner here on a Saturday night but did not have reservations so after waiting more than an hour for a table to open up we left. Everybody leaving the restaurant while we waited raved about the steaks so we decided to make reservations and return the following Monday. It was an excellent decision. The steaks melted in your mouth. Two of us had the 16 oz ribeyes and two had the 12 oz filets. We all agreed that these were some of the best steaks we have ever eaten. Our waiter was great and we really enjoyed the entire dining experience."

  • "Excellent dinner, atmosphere! The owners greet you at the door and have a conversation with you and where you are from. The waitstaff is very attentive, but not intruding, friendly and informative on Charleston. BEST filet I have had in a long time! Excellent and highly recommend this lovely little restaurant. Make reservations, it was packed every night! This was our best meal in Charleston hands down."

  • "The owner met you at the door.....the service was top notch! My shrimp and grits was excellent. My only regret is that I had given up wine for a new fitness goal....and wow they have an awesome wine list! The sides were delicious. My husband didn't like the aged beef....but that's a personal preference. Everything else was awesome and we would definitely eat there again and recommend it to others! Upon our departure, the manager and owner once again spoke with us. The locals def eat here bc I saw the staff and owner having personal interaction with them."

  • "We took our good friends to dinner, and it was their first time, to celebrate our anniversary. The service was perfect, and everyone so friendly. We all ordered Filets, and they were cooked to perfection.The fried okra that we ordered for "before" was so good!, as well as, the sides. We received a complimentary dessert for our celebration which we appreciated. We loved our waiter, Zack, so personable and willing to please. As usual, the Hall sons were right there greeting and meeting! Always my favorite place!!"

  • "Hall's Chophouse is our favorite restaurant for steak. No other steak compares once you've had these! The service is top notch--the owner greeted us when we arrived and followed up before we left to be sure everything was as it should be. The servers are personable and knowledgeable about the menu. We had the dry aged ribeye and a bone-in filet. They were cooked perfectly and we had them topped with truffle butter...mmmmm! I also highly recommend the French onion soup and the Mac & cheese---perfection! We give this restaurant 5 stars and will go back any time we go to Charleston,"

  • "My husband and I ate at Halls for my birthday about a month ago. We decided that when we visited Charleston again for the Bridge Run, we would bring my brother and his girlfriend to Halls because we loved it so much. After each of them took their first bite, their eyes lit up and my brother said, "this is the best steak I have ever eaten." They enjoyed Halls just as much as we do and we will be back!"

  • "As soon as we arrived we were ushered to a private bar area to get drinks while our table was prepared. Excellent service the entire time. Our server dropped 1 asparagus spear on the ground and brought an entire extra batch out although we insisted it was fine. Can't wait to go back. The food was delicious. The hardest part is deciding what to order."

  • "Best dining experience my wife and I have ever had. Exquisite food, friendly and personal staff, and great atmosphere. Steak was incredible! We were greeted as soon as we walked in and made to feel special the entire evening. The food was some of the best we've ever tasted. Very upscale, but well-worth it especially if celebrating a special occasion."

  • "My wife and I visited Hall's for our anniversary and came away impressed. The staff is amazingly attentive and friendly and the owner was visible and warmly greeted us. We had a mixed bag on food quality. I ordered the 8 oz filet which was truly the best steak I have EVER eaten. It literally melted in my mouth. My wife's meal was not as good. She ordered scallops, which were well cooked and very tender, but they were so salty that she could not eat them. The side dishes were incredible. from the creamed spinach to the shrimp and grits skillet, they were amazingly flavorful and fresh. My only advice would be to avoid the scallops but the steaks are incredible!!!"

  • "Every single thing about this restaurant is fantastic. Arrived at 7:55 for our 8pm reservation and were promptly seated upstairs. Terrific, lively atmosphere. We were celebrating a friend's engagement, and the owner brought over complimentary Champagne! They also brought a complimentary dessert later. Very classy touch. The service, as always, was top notch and our waitress never missed a beat. The steaks were amazing. Let me say that again. AMAZING. As was the rest of the food. As we were leaving, the owner thanked us once again for coming in. Save your time, stop searching. Halls is the best fine-dining experience in Charleston."

  • "Don't miss Halls in you are in Charleston. Bone In Filet paired with a Malbec. Perfect. Amazing service and special attention by the owner as well."

  • "This is a family owned and operated restaurant and it shows in the pride that they take in their personal service and excellent food. It is pricey even by Charleston standards but well worth it in my opinion. With a couple of glasses of wine, plan on $200 for two,people. The steak was excellent. I had the filet with peppercorn brandy sauce and my husband had the bison which was melt in your mouth. The owners make an effort to meet and speak to every guest. It is obvious from the excellent execution of gracious service that the owner began his career in hospitality at the Ritz. While it is expensive, it is not stuffy and has a lively atmosphere. You will enjoy it! If you like live music request downstairs."

  • "I have to admit that when I am in Charleston, I don't often think of steak but had heard great things about Hall's from some locals as well as tourists. Hall's exceeded even my high expectations. From the first step in the door, staff was welcoming, attentive and remembered members of our party who had only one prior visit several weeks before. I highly recommend including dinner at Hall's on your next visit to Charleston."

  • "We heard about Hall's during a seminar lunch, and the review was so impressive, I took my phone out and reserved over the internet. We were greeted at the door by the owner, and the place was filling at 6:30 on a Tuesday night. There was a live jazz pianist near the bar. The wait staff was helpful, attentive, and beautiful to boot. The food (14 oz. dry-aged rib-eye, the creamed-corn skillet is a must) was perfect, and the Hefner cocktail was top shelf. One of the finest restaurant experiences I have had. We hated to leave. On the way down the stairs upon exiting, the owner again greeted us and thanked us for coming. Warm leather seating and great Charleston architecture, I can't say enough about my great first impression of Hall's."

  • "If I could give it higher rating I would. Went for Sunday Brunch and owner meets you at the door and introduced himself to each person in our party of 4. We had no fewer than 4 people waiting on our table at any given time. Crab cake Benedict was fantastic, also tried the French Toast and Quiche all superb. Dont forget spicy bloody mary where vodka has been infused with jalapeno! We started our walk down the street and owner chased us down to thank us again. When we get home, a hand written thank you signed by the waiter and Hall Family. This will be my 1st stop when in Charleston, really an unbelievable experience. This is Southern Hospitality on steroids!"

  • "Halls was excellent in all categories. I have had quality food like theirs before and the pricing was similar. The difference was the management and staff. The hostess asked us upon arrival if there was any special occasion. We shared that it was our anniversary. Before the night was over we had at least 8 different people, waiter, management and owners come by and congratulate us. They brought us 2 glasses of complimentary champagne and comp. our dessert. One of the owners walked us out and thanked us for dining with them. A few days later we received a hand written thank you card for choosing Halls to celebrate our anniversary. The Hall family goes above and beyond with customer service!!!"

  • "We have eaten at Hall's three times in the last year and I have been remiss not to review this wonderful place previously. The service is outstanding and there is always the personal touch with Billy Hall greeting you when you arrive. Our waiter, John was attentive to our every need but not intrusive. The food was the best I have ever had at a restaurant. The steaks were perfect. We had the rib-eye, the fillet, and the strip all cooked perfectly to our specifications. Salads and sides were flavorful from the chop salad to the creamed corn. Our desserts were very good including a special apple tart with a butter brickle ice cream. It is pricey but will worth it!!!"

He was sure to great you on the way in and even came out on the street to say his good byes. Very nice considering we were there for the first time and not his regular customers."

  • "Halls is a great restaurant. The host, waiter, etc. give a lot of personal care and attention. It was our last night in Charleston where we had enjoyed wonderful seafood. We were leaving azaleas for snowbanks in Maine. It was time for a change: petite filet mignon for me and prime rib end cut for my spouse. Both were cooked to perfection. We loved the roasted brussel sprouts, too. The bread pudding for dessert was the piece de resistance. Thank you, Halls."
