Diner Reviews
  • "From the moment we where greeted at the door, thru the prime aged perfectly prepared steak & side dishes, on to after dinner drinks Halls Chophouse was 5 star all the way. Outstanding work guys."

  • "I was a little annoyed we were seated in the noisy bar area, but quickly got over it when I cut into the perfectly cooked, dry aged steak. We were pleasantly surprised to have Daryl - someone who always served me well at another establishment - as our server. Kudos to Halls for hiring him!"

  • "Out of all the steak restaurants we have visited whilst on 4 week holiday in USA have been outstanding Halls has simply been the best! Family owned restaurant and it shines above all the others not because the food is fantastic, which it is but the attention to detail and service was excellent would visit charleston again just to go here."

  • "This is southern hospitality at its finest! I think we met all the Hall's that were in the building that day. We were celebrating an anniversary and were treated very well. I enjoyed a dry aged ribeye that was perfectly cooked. My husband had the grouper special that was overcooked but flavors were dead on! They did take it off the bill but I would stick to steak here. They do it well. Side dishes were great. Creme brûlée was as good as it gets. Thank you for a special evening!"

  • "awesome restaurant......the owner always greets you personally and upon exiting he asks if your meal met your expectations. i always go there when i am in charleston. the jelly beans a re a major plus."

  • "The Sunday Gospel Brunch is such fun...at times everyone in the place is singing old songs, like Amazing Grace. Food is excellent, and the service is beyond compare. We fully have enjoyed each time we have done the Gospel Brunch. Last time we took friends from New York. They were totally impressed!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "From the moment we got there until we left we were treated very special. They got as a wonderful table and then gave us free champagne and dessert for our special occasion. The filet mignon was fantastic as we're our sides. We were greeted by three of the Hall family members to be sure we were well taken care of that night. We have been there before and have always been well taken care of. This is our favorite downtown Charleston restaurant. They understand hospitality and make it well worth the price. It is just a wonderful experience to dine here. Thank you for making our special night perfect. We will be back again soon."

  • "Halls is excellent-reproducible-and sometimes over the top. I think the food is excellent but the steaklovers I dined with said they wished their steaks had not been so covered in sauce. They felt the meal would have been even better if simplified. In the future-no sauce for them. It was overpriced a bit. The food is truly excellent but I don't think it needs to be quite that expensive. Would go back-just change orders a bit."

  • "Hands down the best dining experience we have ever had. The food alone was incredible but the staff and owners went out of their way to make our experience the best it could possibly be. Well worth spending the money. Great people, amazing food."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "I had heard great thing about halls so when I came to south Carolina to visit I decided to try it. Our waiter Steve was awsomw but the food was just fair. It was way way over priced and I don't think it was worth it"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Ate here our last night in Charleston. All round wonderful experience food was excellent, service was top notch and ambience was what you would expect in a big city. Go you will not be disappointed!"

  • "We found the food and service to be very good. Our steaks were all exceptional. Everyone enjoyed the creamed corn skillet along with the loaded baked potatoes. The staff and presentation was amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys an outstanding steak. I prefer to have all of my meats grass fed, antibiotic free and the staff informed me that there meats are all grass fed, so I was very pleased to hear this."

  • "ALL the food was the best. We were warmly greeted upon entry and ushered directly to a wonderful secluded table. Best veal chop I ever had."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "As always, Halls did not disappoint. The level of service and quality of food is unsurpassed. We had a first floor window - best in the house! -but found the noise level difficult for conversation. I would recommend the upper floors or the addition next door for a quieter atmosphere !"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "It was a great meal. I had the bone in sirloin and it was delicious. The creamed corn was outstanding. My wife had the quail and she said she loved it. Our waitress was great. She took the time to answer all our questions. It was our anniversary and we were given complimentary champagne by one of the managers. Made our weekend in Charleston a special one. A restaurant that takes pride on serving a memorable meal."

  • "We went to Hall's for our one year anniversary and it was amazing. We were greeted right away and with wishes for a Happy Anniversary. We were ushered upstairs to wait on our table where we were able to get a drink while waiting. The owner Billy even came by to wish us a Happy anniversary again with a couple glasses of champagne. Everything was amazing from start to finish with the meal from the salads all the way through our excellent filet and chocolate cake for dessert. Would recommend to anyone looking for a special night with amazing steak. I will definitely be returning."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary with dinner. We were asked if we were celebrating anything and mentioned our anniversary. The owner brought us two glasses or champagne and also bought us dessert. My husband had the NY Strip and I had the crane cake appetizer and scallops. The sides were awesome. I was told I should order shrimp and grits while in Charleston but never had it before. I was able to try the shrimp and grits as a 1/2 side. I would definitely order as a meal next time. A steak house that also serves great seafood is not an easy find. I love seafood and my husband loves steaks. We will definitely come back next time we are in the area. I wish it was closer to home."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "My husband and I really enjoyed our experience at Halls! This was our first visit, and it was the perfect setting for a romantic birthday celebration. The staff was awesome! From the moment we walked in until we left, the staff was attentive, and that really made our experience enjoyable. We are great fans of Ruth Chris Steakhouse, but to find such a great local steakhouse such as Halls, Ruth Chris did not compare to this experience. The food was excellent, and our server Kimberly was awesome. She was very knowledgable of the menu and bake to answer every question we had. We absolutely enjoyed it, and we will definitely recommend to family and friends!"

  • "THE FOOD WAS VERY GOOD ALTHOUGH I WAS GIVEN THE WRONG DINNER ORDERED. I HAD ORDERED THE RIBEYE AND RECEIVED THE PETITE FILLET. THE MANAGER WHO WAS VERY NICE, CORRECTED THE DINNER AND SAID I COULD ALSO HAVE THE PETITE FILET FREE OF CHARGE. I COULDN`T EAT ALL OF THIS ANYWAY AND DID BOX THE MEAT THAT WAS LEFT. I FELT THAT WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN GIVEN A FREE DRINK OR DESSERT AND NOT JUST THE STEAK TO TAKE BACK TO THE HOTEL. THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT AND ALL CONCERNED WAS VERY NICE."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Our aged strip and rib eye were slightly over cooked and my strip had areas of grissle. The wine portions by the glass were ridiculously small and expensive. Waiter was to "chatty" for us and the manager conducted a friendly, but loud conversation with the couple at the booth next to us. Caramel cake came with bananas foster on it which completely over powered the cake. The check came to just under $300. Way too much for this experience! A Ruth Chris is better."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "My husband and I have atw plenty of great steaks, but the aged steak at Hall's is amazing! We didn't get anything we didn't love and the staff makes the experience even better. Great spot and easy to get to from mount pleasant. We will be back for sure! Thank you to the entire staff for making our night out and first day in Charleston memorable."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "We were celebrating our anniversary, it was not what I had envisioned. The table we had was near the wait station so the servers were all running by back and fourth. (Not very romantic) and noisy. We both had fillets, they were tasty along with the cream corn skillet my favorite part of the meal. Overall it was just ok."

  • "Celebrated our honeymoon with the Hall family and enjoyed every moment of it. Were treated to a glass of Champagne upon arrival courtesy of the family. Food and service was excellent. Only displeasure of the night was the rowdy crowd in the same room as we were in; however, there was not much the Hall family could do as the place was packed (on a Monday night at that)! Overall a great experience and we will be returning!"
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Hall's has by far the best service in Charleston. Everyone is always friendly and attentive. The food is always outstanding, and they don't skimp on portion sizes. One of my favorite spots in Charleston! Definitely need reservations."

  • "Hall's Chophouse is a fantastic restaurant. The food is excellent, but what really pushes Hall's over the top is the service. My wife and I dined there for our anniversary. We were greeted at the door by Billy Hall as if we were old friends, although we had never been to the restaurant. We were treated like honored guests, with great service and a glass of champagne and complimentary dessert to boot. Even without the unexpected gifts, this would have been an evening to remember. I can't recommend Hall's highly enough. Can't wait to go back again next time we are in Charleston."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "From the time we entered and were so graciously greeted by one of the Hall family to the kind and efficient server to the excellent food and comfortable atmosphere....absolutely superb! The attention to detail and personal comfort was so nice. The food was very delicious! They even gave my daughter a choice of dessert to celebrate her birthday! We are very impressed and look forward to returning."
