Diner Reviews
  • "If you want to celebrate a special occasion, this is the place to do it! Outstanding service and food!"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "The restaurant was recommended to me by a work colleague. My wife was over from England, so I want a really nice place to take her. The experience was far greater than expected. We were greeted by very friendly staff. The son of the proprietor introduced himself and also introduced the father. Never had a welcome like that before. The waitress (from NY) was very friendly and helpful throughout. The food (starter and main course) was superb and the whole experience was exceptional. Even when leaving, the son offered his help during our visit to Charleston. Our meal time was a little too early to enjoy the entertainment. Nevertheless, it was a very enjoyable time Thank you everyone at Halls for a great evening that will never be forgotten"

  • "I never fill out reviews, but Hall's Chophouse exceed our expectations in every way. Even in a full restaurant we felt as though we were special guests. The attention to detail was phenomenal. Charleston is known for it's great food. My fiancee is a bit of a foodie and she agrees Hall's has all the others beat. The bison special and the Rib-eye were delicious and you must have the creamed corn side! A dinner at Halls is a truly wonderful experience. We cannot wait to return!"

  • " I have traveled all over the world during my professional career and have eaten in some of the best Steak House Restaurants. And I am telling everyone that "Halls Chophouse" (THE CHARLESTON STEAKHOUSE) is by far the BEST STEAKHOUSE I have ever been too. The Service, The Food, The Ambience were beyond my greatest expiation. I'm telling you now you must try this place. Allen Brothers prim beef says it all! It's the BEST!!!!!"

  • "We were greeted at the door by the Owner's...Mr Bill Hall, Thomas, and Mrs Hall all were warm and hospitable. It was a busy night and our food was timely, appetizing and well presented. The evening was a special occassion for us and the service staff was attentive and patient with our large group. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a first class steakhouse with first class service. I will return and tell my friends to visit Hall's Chop house for the Best Staeks and dining experience in Charleston...Award winning."

  • "From the moment my wife and I walked in the door we were greeted and welcomed by every staff member in the restaurant. The steaks were ridiculously good, one with truffle butter and the other Gorgonzola. The managers and everyone else made us feel like regulars and VIPs. Candace our server was awesome, ever present but not intruding. Dinner was worth every penny. Will definitely go back."

  • "We celebrated my mother's 89th birthday and she felt like a queen. Special requests were not an issue and everyone's food was delicious. The service was excellent. Very attentive and responsive. The desserts were out of this world! The bread pudding is ALWAYS our favorite, but OMG the caramel cake is right up there!!"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "The noise level was so high that you could hardly hear the person sitting next to you. We had to ask for the bread puffs for one couple; the ticket was incorrect and had to be corrected. Too many people jammed together"
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "The service was amazing. The owner of the restaurant and our waitress were great-super friendly and made the dining experience fun and special. We sat upstairs and had a great comfortable booth. They had a fun cocktail menu. We loved the lobster mac & cheese. Only recommendation would be to have a better and larger dessert selection ! Definitely going back-can't wait to dine there again"

  • "Hands down the best steak I have EVER eaten!!! Spicy shrimp appetizer was wonderful and you must order the lobster Mac & Cheese, incredible!!! The service was hands down the best I've ever experienced. The owner greeted us at the door, asked if we were celebrating anything, which we were, and made sure everyone from the hostess to the waiter to the busboy knew it!!! Pricey but worth every penny. You have to eat here!!!"

  • "From the moment you step in you feel like family. A member of the Hall family is usually there to meet you and will warmly welcome you to their version of Charleston hospitality. The food is very good and professionally presented. They major on steaks but everything is good. Don't miss the cream corn and Mac with lobster sides. We have been going to Hall's for several years and they have maintained a clear commitment to making your dining experience special."

  • "From the greeting by Mrs. Hall to the most attentive service by Steve(our server). The best service and dining experience EVER.. The steaks were prime. They made us feel very special with the attention to detail. Would recommend Hall's Chop House to anyone going to Charleston, SC."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Since 2001, my wife and I have been saving our pennies to eat at divine restaurants whenever we can. Our dinner at Hall's Chophouse ranks in our top 3. The service was top class - from the moment we set foot in the restaurant until the moment we left (nearly 3 1/2 hours later) we were treated like family. The Sommelier was extraordinarily helpful in selecting a special bottle to go with our dinner. Our server Andrea deserves special mention - the banter, humor, and quick-wit were right up our alley. The food? Phenomenal. Recommendations for sides to pair with my wife's steak were perfect. I was looking forward to a Filet - but their Bison begged to be ordered. It was a delight. We cannot wait to get back to Charleston and back to Hall's."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "We went here for our one year anniversary. The steaks were unbelievable! In fact, my wife usually doesn't like steak and said this was one of the best meals of her life. Our server, Daryl, was top notch. The owner brought over champagne and dessert to celebrate our anniversary. This is one of the best dining experiences we have had- highly recommend!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "Hall's was crowded and loud even though we sat upstairs away from the music and bar. Food was not bad but not any more special than your average high end steak house (Ruth's Chris, Morton's, etc.). Being in Charleston, I would have expected some dishes with a little "pizazz". Service was adequate but the waiter did not know as much about the wine list as I did. After dinner, there was a 3 deep line to get into the men's room. All in all not worth $700 for a party of 4."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "Walked into gorgeous, energetic Halls at 9:00 p.m. We were immediately and cordially greeted by owner and staff. Lovely table with superb food. Fabulous ambience. Salads to steaks to dessert - all were the best quality, flavor and presentation. Will return every chance we get to Charleston. Wow!"

  • "We celebrated our anniversary and the waitstaff and owner made us feel so special!! Grouper was fantastic!"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "I went here for my birthday dinner and from start to finish, everything was amazing. The owner met us at the front door and welcomed us and shook our hands. He personally brought champagne over to the table since it was a special occasion. The wait staff was very courteous and knowledgable and always there to attend to the table, but not an overwhelming presence at all. The food was phenomenal from appetizers to desert. The manager shook our hands on the way out and the owner again shook our hands and gave me a hug and chatted with my family for a few minutes on the front sidewalk. This was our first time here but we were treated as if we were old friends of Halls."

  • "This was our first visit to this restaurant but were treated like regulars! We loved the ambiance, the food and the service. We had reservations and would recommend having them but noticed that they went out of their way to accommodate those that did not. Their service and attitude is why Charleston is considered the friendliest city in the US! We will definitely return the next time we are in Charleston!"

  • "we've been to Hall's several times over the past 5 years and have found every visit to be completely enjoyable. the staff is always attentive and knowledgeable. the drinks are great and the food is over the top. Best steaks anywhere!! My personal favorite is the bison with truffle butter. I can't say enough to describe how good that is!!"
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "We chose Hall's based on their menu and numerous reviews we had read and were definitely not disappointed! The restaurant was filled with friendly, energetic employees doing their best to make our 42nd anniversary celebration a memorable one! Our filets were some of the best we've ever had--so tender! The creamed spinach was outstanding and the complimentary champagne was really good-even though we're not normally fans of champagne! The recommended Cabernet was also very good---in every aspect, the evening was a highlight of our visit to Charleston."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "And this is the best. As usual, we were greeted like an old, long-lost friend, each and every Hall's representative was welcoming, well trained, energetic, knowledgeable. Of course, our first stop is the fabulous bar where people watching is first class, as are the wines and cocktails. But then the food...can't overstate how fantastic it is. Halls is the reason we stay for dinner, when Charleston could be a day trip for us."
