Diner Reviews
  • "When you speak about the South, only one word to describe it: Hospitality. When you speak of Halls Chophouse, only one word to describe the service, food, and ambience: Love. When you walk in, you are greeted by one of the owners. The welcoming you feel is genuine. They just love you up every moment you are there. They make you feel right at home and grateful that you chose to dine at their establishment. I can't say enough about this place other than, go and experience for yourself. Wonderful, wonderful, and wonderful! "

  • "I know this is a great restaurant. The service is wonderful. I went for brunch and ordered lobster. It was not good. I didn't say anything which is my fault. I a sure they would have fixed it if I had. I felt 90.00 for 2 people for brunch is a lot! "

  • "Billy and Tommy are the consummate hosts. They make you feel at home and want you to be happy. The service is excellent! Our group of four enjoyed every morsel and every minute."

  • "Hall's has a great menu and a very appetizing selection. The Oysters Rockefeller were the best. My husband enjoyed the She Crab Soup and Aged NY Strip. The Lobster Mac N Cheese was wonderful. While I enjoyed it, my Onion Soup was too salty to finish. For my entree, the Bison was perfectly cooked and melted, but the accompanying butter and risotto were too much. Everything was good but not overall great. Considering the reputation, I expected great. The owner was a little odd and left us feeling that we wouldn't return. We would have both gladly come back just for a sampling of appetizers, soups, and signature sides. But being chased down King Street was really odd and we would like to avoid that again. "

  • "I was on a business trip, and my wife accompanied me. This is the best steak we have ever eaten. The service is impeccable. We even got a thank you card from the maitre de! That has never happened to me before. My wife told everyone after that to be sure to eat there."

  • "I was put in a booth in the bar that was overcrowded and very loud . I ask for a table on second floor and was denied. Hard to hear conversation. Food was very good as was the service. I would go back if I'm seated upstairs."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "One of our best meals of 2014. The service was fantastic and the food very good. Dining companions said the bison was the best they ever had. My filet was good, not great so I can't give the food five stars. I highly recommend"
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "That night was incredible! The filet would have simply melted before us if it was not for that beautiful crust to hold in all of the flavor. The sides were right on and perfect compliments. Wonderful."

  • "Friends of our recommended Halls after we had taken them to BLT in NYC. We have been there several times and always enjoyed it-wonderful food, love the popovers! They suggested that we might find Halls superior to BLT and we did. My husband had steak and I had a delicious halibut meal. It was superb and my husband said it was literally the best steak he has ever had in his life. The staff is incredible-one of the owners came over to greet us-affable guy who made us feel very welcome. If you are in Charleston, be sure to dine at Halls."

  • "From the moment we walked in to Halls we were given service that made us feel like the only couple in the restaurant...even though it was a packed house! The staff from the top to the bottom made this an incredible experience for our first trip to Charleston. I had the dry aged New York strip, it was fantastic. My wife had the seared scallops and enjoyed the plate; she even shared some with me. They offer a solid wine selection to pair with your meal. A few weeks later we actually received a note from our waitress! If we are ever in town again, we'll definitely come back. It would be worth a trip just to come here."

  • "Service was good, food was excellent. My left over steak was tossed accidentally but the Mgr replaced it for me."

  • "We recently visited Halls with a group of 8. We all agreed that it was probably the best food we had ever had, hands down anywhere... Service was perfect, atmosphere was perfect. The only negative was the bill. It's definitely pricey, however it was worth every penny."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "The Hall Family makes you feel so special which is rare when dining out. Only Mickey Bakst can compare! The food is fabulous, albeit not inexpensive. Totally worth the quality you get. The restaurant is elegant, but in a casual way. It doesn't intimidate, but encourages you to bring your best manners. Enjoy!!!"
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "The dining out experience was perfect from beginning to end. Friendly staff and owners greeted us on the way in and asked for our critique on the way out. In between the service and food was outstanding. I can't think of anything they could have done better. We loved it !"
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "The best steak I've ever had in my life! The service alone was second to none. So good in fact, if my food would have been terrible (which was the opposite) I would have had a good visit. Mr Hall personally comes by to introduce himself and check on you throughout your visit. He remembered my wife from her last visit and genuinely cares about his customers. Unfortunately, I'll never taste food as good at another restuarant."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Delightful, southern hospitality, inviting atmosphere, attentive service, and fantastic food. The Hall family made this one of our best and most memorable dining experiences ever. It's clear why Halls is ranked among top restaurants in America. We'll be back."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Excellent dinner, lots of menu options. The fantastic food was topped with even better service. The owner stopped in a few times throughout the dinner to make sure everything was good. I will definitely return and would recommend my friends and family to go."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "The Hall family are Southern Gems. Wonderful to see a family that cares about their customers, employees, and the dining experience they provide. My sister and I were vacationing in Charleston, and I made reservations for the Gospel Brunch. It really was a wonderful dining enviroment in everyway. Thanks so much. We will be back."

  • "Delicious food and outstanding service from every single staff member (including the owners)."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "I was told Hall's was the best steakhouse in Charleston. Sometimes when expectations are high, the experience does not live up to the hype. In this case, my expectations were exceeded. Not only was the steak superb, but every dish our table ordered was delicious. On top of this the service was impeccable. At various times, we had the manager, sommellier, the waiter, and maitre d' come by our table. All our meals were delivered at the same time by three different waiters. We were treated like we were celebrities. I can't recommend this restaurant enough!"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Brought my parents here for a touch of Charleston while they were in town. The live gospel music was great, but did make it loud and difficult to hold a conversation. The service was excellent! 3 out of 4 meals were excellent, best crabcake benny around."

  • "The service, food and ambiance are excellent! The gospel music made the dining experience even more enjoyable."

  • "I invited some friends to the Sunday Gospel Brunch and it was fantastic. The service and food was great!! The seating area was a little tight but the staff immediately helped to make us comfortable. This was my second time at Halls Chophouse and I will certainly be back. Halls Chophouse has become my favorite spot!"

  • "Continually impressed by the outstanding service and attention to detail - it's their business model; the guest is "our guest" and as a team they fulfill every need with great service."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The restaurant was everything it was billed as . A classic steakhouse menu with several twists, fantastic and attentive service with private quiet dining upstairs and a vibrant crowd downstairs... Rarely does a $50 dollar steak come close to expectations but our rib eyes certainly did. Every local recommended this place as a must do while in Charleston and I would concur. A member of the Hall family was there to great us at the front door and he checked in on us throughout our evening expressing a genuine concern for how our experience was going. We'll definitely be back when in Charleston again ."

  • "Saw they were ranked 4 in top 100 restaurants in open table and reserved table for my 4th anniversary with my wife. Place is nice and service was excellent. We ordered the menu porterhouse, lobster mac-n-cheese, and asparagus that we would split with a side of Bernaisse sauce. Not only did they slice the steak up for us, but they plated the food for us table side. Wine list is exceptional if you have the money. They checked in with us from time to time. They gave us a free dessert, which was a mountain-sized chocolate came ($10) that was very good. They did this because my wife was 8 months pregnant and wanted to congratulate us. They didn't know it was our anniversary. We can't afford to eat there monthly but we will anyway."

  • "Told Mr. Hall, best steak I have eaten in 73 years, and truly believe that is true, exceptional restaurant, great service, very friendly and accommodating. I have already recommended Halls to several people travelling to Charleston. A restaurant the truly get it. On top of all that, received a thank you note from our waitress. Now how great is that."

  • "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!"

  • "My daughter and I went for my Birthday on a Friday night. Our waitress Kristin was friendly and very knowlegable about the food preparation. She was so attentive to our needs without hovering. 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."
